The thought of using Orlando hypnotherapy techniques for various mood disorders and ailments has crossed the mind of many. If you are suffering from anxiety, stress, panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, addictive behaviors, insomnia, self-esteem issues, or even symptoms of PTSD, Orlando hypnotherapy could be the answer for you.
The definition of Hypnotherapy (or Hypnosis) is a deep state of relaxation and focused concentration (or trance). A trained hypnotherapist in Orlando will guide you into this deep state of relaxation with verbal cues, repetition, and imagery. This deep level of concentration will allow you to eliminate distractions around you and be more open to suggestions to change your unwanted behaviors.
It is also believed that, if you are in this deep state of relaxation, you can focus on your subconscious allowing you to concentrate on deeper issues. For example, someone with anxiety will listen to suggestions about calming techniques and eliminating irrational or intrusive thinking. Many clients with anxiety will often report feeling less tension, improved heart rate, and better concentration.
Some might be hesitant about utilizing hypnosis after hearing many myths surrounding the practice. A common myth we often hear is that hypnosis is nothing more than a magic trick. This is far from the truth, as this practice has promising research on the reduction of anxiety and other stress-related disorders. Another common myth is that you are under the control of your therapist. This practice will never make you do anything against your will or reveal any secrets. Rather, many clients describe their Orlando hypnotherapy experience as “zoning out”. Many of us “zone out” on a daily basis without even realizing it! This is similar to driving to a destination and not remembering exactly how you got there. Or being so focused on a movie that you cannot hear any conversations around you. Many feel like this experience is relaxing and pleasant.
