Anxiety affects about 40 million Americans, and one remedy many don’t consider is having hypnosis for anxiety. About 95 percent of our behavior is influenced by our subconscious mind, and because hypnosis targets the subconscious, it can help to calm us and eliminate much of that anxiety and worry. Positive thoughts and changes in behavior can be encouraged by the use of hypnosis, and it’s an effective, safe and easy way to do this. Hypnosis is also effective at treating many other things; it can help you to quit smoking, increase self confidence or overcome a fear of lying. Although hypnosis undoubtedly works, don’t expect instant results, and you may need several sessions spread over weeks to notice the difference. The length of your hypnosis session can vary too, although you should expect a session to last between an hour and two.
