Use Hypnosis to Restore Your Skin’s Appearance

Dr. Steve G. Jones

Are you very conscious of your skin that you avoid looking at mirrors, feeling unhappy whenever you do? Are you so fixated on your acne that you no longer see your other physical attributes? Are you painfully uncomfortable in social situations because of your skin?

For better or worse, society places a premium on healthy and beautiful skin. As the body’s largest organ, our skin has significant symbolic value. It’s the canvas through which we express our identity, and when it appears damaged, it also negatively affects our ability to express ourselves and be confident.

Unfortunately, acne and other skin issues don’t automatically disappear when you turn 21. Although almost every person goes through a phase of skin challenges, especially during their teenage years, acne breakouts can still happen well into your adulthood. Eczema, rosacea, allergy rashes, boils, warts, and stretch marks are just a few of the many skin issues that can affect people regardless of age. In any case, the impact of these skin challenges can affect your quality of life and body image in many ways.

You may have heard that stress is one of the primary causes of acne breakouts in adults. This suggests that much of what causes acne and other skin problems begins in the mind. In turn, this opens up the potential for hypnosis to be a viable therapy for improving the appearance of your skin.

Indeed, one study published in the Journal of Psychology Research and Behavior Management found that “Adding hypnosis to cognitive-behavioral therapy can facilitate aversive therapy and enhance desensitization and other cognitive-behavioral methods.”

But how exactly does hypnosis improve your skin’s appearance?

Hypnosis Can Help Regulate Circulation

By putting you in a hypnotized state, your mind triggers a relaxation response that supports normal circulation and releases hormones. In turn, these hormones regulate other bodily functions not under your conscious control, which include allergic and dermatologic reactions, and even pain control and healing. If anything, this shows just how much influence the mind can have over the body’s physiological processes.

Hypnosis Relieves Stress

Hypnosis can be especially helpful in relieving skin diseases with a psychosomatic aspect, such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, and allergy rashes. Moreover, stress leads to the secretion of stress hormones like cortisol, adrenaline, and DHEA, all of which can cause changes in the skin. For example, cortisol stimulates the production of sebum, too much of which results in acne breakouts.

Stress can also dehydrate your skin, making it susceptible to allergens, irritants, and other contaminants that can trigger skin problems like dermatitis and psoriasis.17

By teaching you relaxation techniques, hypnosis will help you develop your self-hypnosis abilities, allowing you to relax at will during stressful situations. Hypnotherapy trains your mind to think positively, using the power of suggestion to know how to handle stress effectively.

The benefits of hypnosis go beyond restoring your skin’s beautiful appearance. With the right approach, your hypnotherapist can also restore your radiant health.

Sincerely,
Dr. Steve

3 Ways Hypnosis Can Improve Your Focus and Concentration

Steve G. Jones and Craig Shoemaker

Me with Joel Geist, Craig Shoemaker, & Sarah Sweet after being a guest on the Laugh It Off program this week, where we talked about the power of expecting good things in your life.

Do you constantly struggle to maintain your concentration when working on important tasks or projects? Are you someone with a short attention span, prone to being easily distracted? Many people assume that focus is a trait you’re either born with or not, but the truth is that your ability to concentrate on a task ultimately boils down to your level of enjoyment while doing it.

For example, when you’re reading a book that you like, or watching a movie that you’ve been eagerly awaiting for months, concentration almost comes naturally—you’re not even aware you’re engrossed in what you’re doing. In contrast, when you’re assigned to read an essay for a class paper, concentration feels more like a chore.

The difference is in how you view both tasks. But the good news is that there are ways to apply the same kind of focus you get while reading a riveting book to other areas of your life.

Hypnosis is one such approach. One study published in the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis found that “students who scored highest on the CIS (Creative Imagination Scale, a measure of hypnotic responsiveness) had the lowest initial GPA, improved most during the course, and significantly increased their GPA in the quarter after.”

So how exactly does hypnosis improve your concentration?

  1. Hypnotherapy Begins at the Root of Focus, the Subconscious

Your hypnotherapist’s goal is to enter your subconscious mind to change your belief systems and deeply held attitudes about focus. This allows you to tap into the state of mind you have whenever you’re concentrating on any activity that you enjoy, applying this same mindset to other tasks, whether it’s speed reading for an exam the next day, or leading a team of employees with sound decision making.

  1. Hypnosis Allows You to Relax Your Mind and Slow Your Thought Process

The ability to concentrate comes from knowing how to slow your mind’s thought chain and focus on one process or one memory at a time. Your hypnotherapist can help you control your mind’s racing thoughts, making you less likely to be distracted as you acquire an improved ability to concentrate. If your short attention span has you constantly taking breaks from work to check your phone or Facebook, regular hypnotherapy just might help you.

  1. Your Hypnotherapist Can Break Down the Concentration Process

Many times, we think that all it takes to concentrate on a task or project is to simply roll up our sleeves, settle down, and start working. But there’s more to effective concentration than that. You also need to prepare your mind for the task, which will steer you away from procrastinating and daydreaming. With repeated hypnosis sessions, you can train your mind to shift gears at will and enter a higher state of focus.

With time and repeated therapy sessions, the effects of hypnosis will continue to build, allowing you to enter a deeper and natural state of concentration at will. Hypnosis is gentle and harmless, and in many ways, is very similar to meditation.

Sincerely,
Dr. Steve

3 Ways Hypnosis Can Help You Manage Your Fear and Anxiety

Me sharing a positive attitude with a furry friend

Me sharing a positive attitude with a furry friend

Fear and anxiety can negatively affect your quality of life, preventing you from living it to the fullest and engaging in seemingly normal, day-to-day activities. For some people, anxiety is mildly distressing but very manageable; similar to how you would avoid certain foods that cause allergic reactions, all you have to do is avoid things that trigger your anxieties.

For others, however, fear and anxiety can be debilitating, to the point that stepping out of their own home feels impossible. Your severe fear of rejection, failure, commitment, and even a fear of success can prevent you from reaching your full potential.

As early as 1950, psychologists found that about 5 percent of the population suffered from some form of acute or chronic anxiety (Cohen and White, 1950). But where do these emotions and irrational thoughts come from? As you may have guessed, it’s all happening in your mind, which is why hypnosis holds significant potential for the treatment of these problems.

There’s been a great deal of research on the use of hypnosis for anxieties and phobias. One study published in the Australian Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis found that “hypnosis may be employed effectively in conjunction with behavioral approaches, including cognitive restructuring and systematic desensitization, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and dental treatment.”

So, how exactly does hypnotherapy for your fears work?

  1. Hypnosis Addresses the Underlying Cause of the Fear

Having a seemingly irrational fear, like a fear of commitment, doesn’t just happen overnight. Hypnotherapy attempts to discover the real cause of this fear, which is usually a traumatic event or experience that happened previously in a person’s life. It can also be a repressed memory—the mind’s defense mechanism to keep the trauma out of your immediate thoughts.

  1. Hypnosis Puts You in a State of Deep Relaxation to Access Your Memories

To access your repressed memories, the hypnotherapist will need to put you in a state of deep relaxation. This technique allows you to block out everything in the outside world and focus on your subconscious thoughts. Addressing memories that are the root cause of your anxiety also allows you to understand your tumultuous emotions and see them in a way that’s no longer threatening, making it easier to break free and change.

  1. Hypnotherapy Can Address Your Low Self-Esteem

Many times, low self-esteem is actually the cause behind many anxieties and fears. If you’ve always been shy, afraid of change, or afraid to try anything new, it’s probably your low self-esteem getting the best of you. And yet you struggle to change, because your fear of failure prevents you from breaking old habits.

A hypnotherapist can use ego-strengthening methods while you’re in a hypnotic state, using the power of suggestion to help you believe in yourself and find the willpower to be confident and welcome growth.

If you suffer from constant fear and anxiety, or simply want to have a more positive outlook in life, hypnosis can be a viable form of therapy. It’s safe, gentle, and offers a holistic approach to healing your mind.

Sincerely,
Dr. Steve

3 Ways Hypnosis Can Relieve OCD Symptoms

Working on a project with Dr. Joe Vitale

Working on a project with Dr. Joe Vitale

Obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD for short, is a mental disorder characterized by uncontrollable obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors.

Many people often joke about their obsessive tendencies, such as being “neat freaks” or “germophobes,” and refer to them as OCD. But for those living with the real thing it’s hardly a laughing matter. At its worst, OCD can rob you of your happiness, peace of mind, and health, as you do everything that you can to control your obsessive and compulsive thoughts and behaviors with little to no effect.

Some OCD conditions can traced to genetics and heredity, while others can be explained by problems within the neural pathways. But for the most part, OCD conditions are caused by emotional and developmental issues, which is why cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has emerged as one of the most popular psychotherapy treatments for OCD.

CBT identifies issues with your cognitions and behavior, and changes these patterns so you can change the way you feel and act.

Interestingly enough, hypnotherapy for OCD works in a very similar fashion.

  1. Hypnosis Relieves Your Anxiety

Anxiety is a known trigger of OCD, and the worse your anxiety becomes, the worse your OCD symptoms get. It’s a problematic cycle that can be hard to break, which is where hypnosis comes in. At the basic level, hypnosis is all about finding a deep calm and relaxed mind—the first step towards addressing your negative OCD thoughts and actions.

In fact, a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis found that relaxation and positive suggestion, combined with behavioral therapy, produced “rapid improvement” in OCD patients.

In time, you can be so adept at self-hypnosis that you can teach yourself to relax whenever you feel your OCD tendencies kicking in.

  1. Hypnotherapy Traces OCD Issues Within Your Mind

In a hypnotized state, your hypnotherapist can help you identify your OCD thoughts and urges without actually pointing them out in a direct manner. You need to recognize these compulsions and obsessions on your own, building the confidence to realize that your problem is happening all in your mind.

By doing so, you can then practice from avoiding or even stopping the associated compulsive behavior.

  1. Hypnotherapy Helps to Strengthen Your Ego

A hypnotherapist will typically use techniques designed to boost your ego during therapy sessions. This can be a powerful approach to solving your woes because your ego is often bombarded by obsessive-compulsive thoughts and urges. By using positive messages and imagery, your hypnotherapist can help you fight these negative impulses, helping you focus on positive thoughts and emotions more effectively.

Conclusion

If you or a loved one is suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder, hypnotherapy can be a gentle and viable approach to improving your quality of life. I highly suggest you consult a medical doctor before using hypnosis for OCD.

Sincerely,
Dr. Steve

3 Benefits of a Positive Attitude For Your Mind and Body

Steve G. Jones with Colin Wayne, fitness athlete and model

Me with Colin Wayne, fitness athlete and model

When learning about hypnotherapy and hypnosis, you will often hear that it is all about leverage the power of positive thinking. But what exactly does this mean? What effect does having a positive attitude have on your health and wellness?

One study conducted by a team of researchers from the University of Carolina at Chapel Hill and University of Michigan found that meditation focused on positive thinking “produced increases over time in daily experiences of positive emotions, which, in turn, produced increases in a wide range of personal resources (e.g., increased mindfulness, purpose in life, social support, decreased illness symptoms). In turn, these increments in personal resources predicted increased life satisfaction and reduced depressive symptoms.”

More researchers continue to explore the benefits of a positive attitude and optimism, especially on one’s general health and wellness. Below is a brief list of what they’ve found so far.

  1. A Positive Attitude Helps You Cope Better with Stress

When confronted with stressful situations, optimists usually fare better than pessimists do. And it’s not surprising why. Even when you encounter disappointment, whether it’s failing a test, not getting a job, or being rejected, having a positive mindset makes it easier to focus on what you can do to fix the problem. Rather than focus on their frustrations, optimists will create an action plan to achieve a sound life balance.

  1. Increased Lifespan, Healthy Heart, and Lower Risk of Depression

Several studies have suggested a direct correlation between a positive attitude and increased resiliency against common health problems like hypertension (high blood pressure) and even depression. Psychologists believe this might have to do with the placebo effect, a psychological phenomenon that quite simply, means mind over matter. When your mind thinks it’s going to get better or stay healthy, the body follows—even without any external factors like medical treatment.

  1. It Makes You Appear Beautiful, Inside and Out

As cliché as it sounds, positive thinking helps to bring out the best in you in a natural way. You start smiling more, you’re friendly, happy, and exude confidence. Your inner beauty, which is really just another term for self-esteem, becomes more visible to people around, which can go a long way to complementing your physical appearance.

Scientists are still trying to understand why positive think yields these health benefits. One theory suggests that being positive allows people to cope better with stress by engaging their immune system. Another school of thought is that optimistic people naturally gravitate toward healthier lifestyles—they get more exercise, follow a balanced diet, and avoid harmful habits like smoking and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol.

In any case, these benefits are but the tip of the iceberg of positive thinking. For the most part, a positive attitude is the sum of life’s experience, but it can also be acquired through practice. This is where hypnotherapy comes in, giving you a chance to adopt a positive mindset with the help of a hypnotherapist.

Sincerely,
Dr. Steve

How Hypnosis Helps With Weight Loss

cdwln

Contrary to popular belief and its portrayal by the media, hypnosis is not mystical in nature, and neither is it some kind of magic trick or illusion. In fact, it’s about as harmless as closing your eyes, relaxing, and imagining a positive image of yourself.

But hypnosis is powerful, even if it’s based on the power of mind over body. And it’s this same power that makes hypnosis perfect for boosting your weight loss efforts. According to a study published in the US National Library of Medicine, “Controlled trial on the use of hypnotherapy, as an adjunct to dietary advice in producing weight loss, has produced a statistically significant result in favour of hypnotherapy.”

But how exactly does hypnosis for weight loss work? The transformative power of a hypnotherapy session may seem hard to believe, so it helps to understand how this emphasis on mind over body helps you control your eating habits and lose weight.

  1. It’s All in Your Mind

You have all the weapons they need to lose weight. Rather than treat food as fuel, many people turn to food to satisfy cravings or as a way to cope with their emotions. A hypnotherapist helps you realize that cravings, whether it’s sugar treats or crunchy chips, are all in your mind.

Likewise, your attempts to lose weight through diet and exercise ultimately boil down to commitment and motivation—all of which start with in your mind.

  1. Hypnosis Helps You Stay Positive

Scary messages like, “Greasy foods will give you a heart attack” or “Too much sweets will cause diabetes” can certainly work, but more often than not, they only last for a limited time. In contrast, positive suggestion through hypnosis has a more lasting effect. Messages like, “A healthy body will make me happy” or “Eating healthy will make me feel and look good,” are definitely more upbeat, helping you stay positive on the arduous road to losing weight.

  1. Hypnosis Helps You Visualize

Similar to how athletes visualize winning matches and games, imagining a day of eating healthy and exercising to lose pounds will help the task become easier. If you’re having problems imagining, your hypnotherapist can help you remember and focus on a time when you were at a comfortable and healthy weight.

  1. It Helps You Beat Your Cravings

Many hypnotherapists like to use the power of symbolic images, encouraging patients to visualize their food cravings as real objects locked away in a box, or buried under the ground. It’ll seem like a simple thing, but images have a powerful effect in real life. Have you ever experienced feeling nostalgic when you see a McDonald’s sign, or feeling homesick when you see something that reminds you of home? That’s the power of imagery at work.

Bottom line? Hypnosis is a gentle yet powerful approach to supplementing your weight loss efforts, whether it’s an exercise regimen, a diet program, or both.

Sincerely,
Dr. Steve

3 Ways Hypnosis Can Help You Stick to Your New Year’s Resolutions

Steve G. Jones with rifle

Me cultivating visions of becoming a cowboy as a youngster.

Having a New Year’s resolution is a common practice stemming from a desire to start anew, to change for the better, to reach important goals and to become the ‘new you.’ Unfortunately, many people often fail to stick to their resolutions, so much so that it’s become just as common to assume people won’t stick to their resolutions.

But it doesn’t have to be that way, not when the secret to fulfilling your resolutions is all in your mind. As Napoleon Hill once said, “What the mind can conceive, the body can achieve.”

You’ll often hear that the only way you can stay motivated enough to stick to your goals is to have the willpower to do it, which again, comes from your mind. But willpower means making a conscious decision to keep your resolution.

The better option is to make your resolution come from your subconscious. This part of your mind not only controls your thoughts and actions automatically, it also plays a huge role in undesirable habits, whether it’s smoking or procrastination.

It’s for this reason that hypnosis is a viable approach to help you stick to your New Year’s resolution. One study by Bonshtein, Shaar and Golan (2005) found that hypnosis helped people in maintaining their motivation to beat nicotine addiction. The researchers also found that hypnotherapy complemented other strategies, such as group therapy and medication.

Here’s a closer look at how hypnotherapy helps your ability to stick to your New Year’s resolutions.

  1. Hypnosis Targets the Subconscious and Unconscious Parts of the Mind

The subconscious and unconscious parts of your mind are responsible for your body’s internal programming. It’s also where your deepest beliefs and motivations take root. A hypnotherapist targets these areas of the brain by putting you in a state of relaxation, which opens your minds to the power of positive suggestion. A hypnotherapy session allows you to ‘look’ into your mind, changing how you think of yourself.

If any changes are going to stick, it needs to start in these parts of the mind.

  1. Hypnosis Uses Positive Reinforcement to Affect Change

Many people fail to keep their New Year’s resolutions because deep in their mind, they’re telling themselves they’re going to fail. A typical hypnosis session involves using the power of suggestion to plant seeds of positivity, conditioning your mind to believe that “Yes, I can reach my goal,” or “Yes, I can change for the better.”

  1. Hypnotherapy Makes Your Goals Appear Clearer

Hypnotherapy sessions help your mind visualize the goals you want to achieve with the start of the New Year. If your goal is to lose weight, your hypnotherapist can help you focus on your desired results without any negative thoughts. This way, instead of thinking, “I’m going to have a hard time losing weight,” your thoughts will gravitate to something like, “I’m slowly reaching my desired healthy weight with each day that passes.”

Bottom line? Hypnosis is gentle, pain-free, and simply teaches you how to use your mind to fuel your motivation. If you want to maintain a positive mindset when approaching your New Year’s resolution, you can’t go wrong with hypnosis.

Sincerely,
Dr. Steve

How Hypnosis Can Help Improve Student Grades and Performance

Steve studying

Me in 10th grade in military school studying hard to achieve my goals and grow into the best person I can be.

It’s no secret that life as a student can be stressful and demanding, with students constantly trying to beat deadlines and pushing the limits of their intellectual abilities, all in the name of getting good grades. Sometimes, it’s not even about good grades anymore, but just surviving the semester.

To cope with the pressure of improving their academic performance, many students turn to a number of tried and tested strategies, such as study groups, vitamin supplements specifically marketed to students, exercise, and meditation among many others. In recent years, hypnosis has emerged as one such method with potential benefits for improving study abilities and grades.

One research study published in the Oxford Journals used hypnosis to reduce the competition between multiple cognitive systems, and found that when comparing “learning in hypnosis and in the alert state and found that hypnosis boosted striatum-dependent sequence learning.”

The observation that hypnosis can benefit learning comes as no surprise, as it’s long been known that hypnotherapy also helps in addressing the symptoms of addiction, trauma, weight problems, and much more.

But how exactly does hypnosis impact your academic performance?

Hypnosis Improves Learning Ability

Contrary to how it’s portrayed on TV and film, hypnosis isn’t about magic or trickery. Instead, real hypnotherapy is about being in a deep state of relaxation. With each hypnotherapy session, you are teaching your mind how to relax at will, a skill that will prove useful in several student situations, such as test taking, memory exercises, presentations, and reports among others.

Anxiety is often what blocks a student’s ability to learn, which is why many college students are known to abuse drugs for sleep disorders (like Ambien). By being able to switch to a relaxed state, you not only eliminate the need for any chemical-based intervention, you also make it easier for your mind to absorb information and learn.

Hypnosis Improves Your Learning Drive

Many students know that their education is important, but that doesn’t make it any easier for them to develop a steady and constant drive to study. It’s common for students to begin the semester eager and motivated to learn, only for their enthusiasm to wane as the months go by.

Hypnosis can help you maintain your enthusiasm. A hypnotherapist can put you in a relaxed state and use the power of suggestion to fight negative influences that might cause you to lose your motivation.

Students of All Ages Can Benefit from Hypnosis

Hypnotherapy isn’t just beneficial to students in high school or college. It can also help children as young as four years of age to develop study skills and improve their academic performance. If you have a child in need of a push in the right direction, a hypnotherapist may be of assistance.

The bottom line is that hypnosis can help you overcome the fears and anxiety that hold you back from excelling in school, all while helping you maintain your motivation and fight the urge to procrastinate. If you want to be productive as a student, hypnosis is a gentle and harmless approach to achieving that goal.

Sincerely,
Dr. Steve

Understanding How Hypnotherapy Can Improve Stuttering

Steve G. Jones REO Speedwagon

Me with REO Speedwagon

If you’ve seen the movie, The King’s Speech, which tells the story of how King George VI of Great Britain worked with a speech and language therapist to treat his stutter, you would know that his therapy was not just physical, it was also psychological. His therapist, the Australian Lionel Logue, suspected that his stutter was caused by childhood trauma. His approach was to build the king’s confidence and improve his anxiety by addressing these issues under the guise of mechanical exercises.

Several studies suggest that aside from biological factors, environmental stressors such as family challenges, confidence issues, and anxiety can be contributing factors to stuttering. And it’s these same issues that make hypnotherapy a potentially viable form of treatment for people who suffer from this speech impediment.

Results of APA Study

One study published in the American Psychological Association describes the case of a 14-year old boy with severe stuttering who was treated with hypnosis to overcome his speech impediment. The boy eventually became 100 percent speech-fluent, and after 10 years, not only maintained this achievement, but also made many improvements to his personality as a whole.

But how does hypnotherapy for stuttering work?

  1. Hypnotherapy Let’s You “Practice” Speaking Without a Stutter

Many patients with a stutter can often speak normally without any traces of their speech impediment. Because stuttering is suspected to be triggered by different environmental factors, consistent hypnotherapy sessions can allow you to shut these triggers out and practice speaking normally.

By putting you in a relaxed state, your hypnotherapist can help reduce the impact of your triggers and work on new reactions.

  1. It Allows You to Build Your Confidence

Much of hypnotherapy is about using the power of suggestion to condition your mind to believe in something. And the more you think about changing a negative aspect about yourself into something positive, it eventually becomes a reality.

This is especially true when using hypnosis for building your confidence and self-esteem. With constant positive conditioning, you can adopt a mindset that allows you to stay confident under pressure and, in the case of stutterers, speak without any speech problems.

  1. Hypnotherapy Addresses the Root Cause of Your Stuttering

Hypnosis can also be used to help patients address the root cause of their speech challenge by helping them remember when the stuttering first happened. Your hypnotherapist will help you analyze what triggered your stutter. Was it a traumatic event? Was it a family challenge? With consistent hypnotherapy sessions, you can confront these negative emotions in your subconscious and bring about positive change.

In Conclusion

If you’ve already tried different approaches to fixing your stutter and haven’t found anything effective, hypnotherapy might be what you need. Hypnosis is a gentle form of therapy that helps you look into your mind to resolve whatever mental and emotional issues may be contributing to your speech impediment. Hypnotherapy may be the key to conquering your stutter and living as normal a life as possible.

Sincerely,
Dr. Steve

3 Ways to Stop Overanalyzing with Hypnosis

Steve G. Jones with Dad

This is me with my dad in 1972 (I was five) at Cape Canaveral, Florida. One of the greatest gifts my dad gave me is the ability to dream big. He passed along these words of wisdom to me, concerning career choices: “There are a lot of stars up there, just reach up and grab one.” …so I did. Thanks for the gift, dad. I miss you.

Everyone has a habit of being critical about their own personal thoughts and actions. But the key is being able to differentiate between being analytical, which is positive, and being over-analytical, which is inherently negative. The latter can be particularly debilitating, preventing many people from reaching their true potential because of anxiety issues and a lack of confidence.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Hypnosis has emerged as a viable therapy for helping you to stop worrying and being too critical of your thoughts, words, and actions. In fact, one study published in The American journal of clinical hypnosis describes the positive effects of hypnotherapy when combined with mindfulness exercises in terms of healing emotional disorders, such as anxiety and depression.

Below are 3 ways that hypnotherapy can help you to control your habit of being over-analytical.

  1. Hypnosis Can Help You Relax

A hypnotherapist can teach you a number of techniques to put yourself in a state of complete relaxation, which is half the battle when trying to suppress your excess thoughts of worry and anxiety. Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis is not some kind of mystical trick that puts you to sleep or controls your mind. Instead, it’s about finding a state of calmness and using the power of suggestion to ‘plant’ positive thoughts and ideas in the mind.

  1. Hypnosis Can Relieve Anxiety Depression 

Many people who suffer from serious problems of overanalyzing, over-thinking, and obsessing over their actions also suffer from anxiety and depression. Several studies have found compelling evidence that hypnotherapy can help relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety. One study at the conducted at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine found that, “hypnotherapy was significantly more effective than antidepressant treatment on depression.”

In short, hypnotherapy can address what is often the root cause of overanalyzing and obsessive behavior.

  1. Hypnosis Can Train You to Think Positive

A huge part of hypnotherapy is about finding ways to think positive. A hypnotherapist will put you in a state of relaxation and plant positive suggestions directly into your subconscious. With continued sessions, you will find it much easier to have a positive mindset and overcome your tendency to obsess and overanalyze.

In Summary

Hypnosis is a powerful but gentle solution to help you overcome your bad habit of worrying and overanalyzing about everything that you do, say, and think. Your hypnotherapist will help you develop a positive mindset, using the power of suggestion to change your subconscious mind’s way of gravitating towards negative and obsessive thoughts.

Sincerely,
Dr. Steve
