Anxiety hypnosis practitioners in Melbourne know that to manage your fears in a powerful and effective way, you need to go beyond the conscious mind and get under the hood where the subconscious beliefs lie.
Here’s something you may not know: our brains are hardwired to look for what is wrong. This stems back from a long time ago when a heightened fear response was essential to our survival as a species.
What that means is 80% of what we worry about won’t eventuate. That’s a lot of unnecessary negative energy and stress to be carrying around!
Fortunately, the problem isn’t so much with the nervousness and worrying itself but with the way you relate to it; and you can definitely do something about that with the help of a professional consulting hypnotherapist in Melbourne, Australia. If you’re ready to take control and learn how to cope with anxiety, panic attacks, and other symptoms, get in touch now.

How Anxiety Therapy Melbourne Works
Anxiety Is Not The Problem
Just because a feeling of impending doom arises in you, it doesn’t mean you have to be defined by it. I have taught many of my clients who found themselves paralyzed by worry strategies to help them stop doing this, and I can teach you too.
Anxiety itself isn’t the problem. In fact, a feeling of anxiety only has about a 90-second shelf life.
But it’s the subsequent train of terrifying thoughts, stories and fear-fantasies that perpetuate this initial feeling and make it last much longer. When stressful situations or a perceived threat activate your flight or fight response, you can recognise it is just a feeling or you can let it grow.
You can break free from the trance of fear using the tried and true hypnosis for stress and mindfulness techniques that are part of my hypnotherapy for anxiety program.
What are anxiety disorders?
Anxiety disorders describe a group of mental health problems. This includes:
General anxiety – Anxiety that covers a number of areas
Social anxiety – Fear of being judged in social situations (public speaking, events, etc.) that interferes with their interaction with others
Phobias – Specific fears, such as claustrophobia
Panic disorder – Regular panic attacks (at least four a month)
People with an anxiety disorder may also be diagnosed with depression, PTSD, or other mental health issues.
It is important to realise that not all anxiety is a disorder. Most people will experience fear, anxiety and overwhelming stress at some point. However, if the anxiety is irrational and causes people to suffer by impeding their daily life, this can be classified as an anxiety disorder.
There are several anxiety therapy Melbourne that addresses the emotional and physical symptoms that people suffer, such as psychotherapy, counselling, medication, and more. Hypnotherapy is an effective treatment for anxiety; a clinical hypnotherapist in Melbourne can guide a person to develop coping strategies and overcome certain blocks and limiting beliefs.
Broadly speaking there will be one of two causes for uneasiness and worry. If your anxiety is situational, this means that there are situations, circumstances or people that your subconscious mind perceives as a threat.
Cheryl’s testimonial in this video is a perfect example of how Melbourne clients experiencing situational anxiety can turn their life around with the help of hypnotherapy.
For example, if over the past few months a close family member has been seriously ill and your sleep is disturbed as a result, you may feel agitated and distressed on a regular basis. This would be described as situational anxiety.
I can help you work through your situational anxiety and teach you tools that will alleviate the feelings generated by these situations so that no matter what happens, you can cope and eventually, thrive.
When I use this term I’m describing any kind of fretfulness that comes out of the blue for no reason. This can be caused by a number of things:
- Adding, changing or discontinuing psychotropic medications (such as antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications or sleep aids);
- Poor or inadequate diet;
- Hormonal changes;
- Recreational drug use
Organic anxiety can’t be treated with hypnosis, because a clinical hypnotherapist has no control over your hormones or brain chemistry.
Your Habitual Subconscious Mind Patterns Can Be Changed With Hypnotherapy
Melbourne patients often think that they cannot overcome their thoughts, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Just as you have learned this fearful way of thinking, you can also unlearn it. A skilled hypnotherapist will diagnose the beliefs and unwanted mind patterns that are keeping you stuck in this state of fear and, with your permission, eliminate them with hypnotic suggestion.
Hypnosis works by accessing the underlying subconscious memories, imprints and patterns that are not working for you and changing them while your mind is in a relaxed, focused and receptive state. Hypnotherapy has been proven to help patients cope with phobias, anxiety disorders (social anxiety, general anxiety, panic attacks), depression, traumatic events, PTSD, insomnia, and a range of other mental health concerns, as well as chronic pain and irritable bowel syndrome. It can also help with behavioural changes that allow people to quit smoking and achieve weight loss.
When it comes to hypnotherapy for anxiety Melbourne, patients should do their homework and find a practitioner who will work well with them, and create an anxiety therapy Melbourne program that is tailored to their symptoms and needs.

How Brian Got His Life Back
When Brian came to see me, his whole life had been turned upside down by a recent separation. He had been left to look after the kids and fend for himself after 23 years of marriage. Not surprisingly, he fell in a heap.
Even though he knew his marriage was over, he was finding it hard to move on and every time he thought about his wife it sent him spiralling into overwhelming worry, anger and hopelessness. The first thing I did was help Brian heal the hurt and resentment he was carrying so he could move on with his life in a constructive way.
After his first session of hypnotherapy for anxiety Melbourne, Brian was amazed at how much lighter he felt. I continued to work on his confidence, self-esteem and ability to set boundaries in subsequent sessions. At the same time, I set mini-goals with him, specific activities that would help him get back into the world and establish a life and identity that was separate from the one he had as a married man.
By his fourth session, Brian was feeling calm, confident and ready to live life. He had joined a gym and started eating better and was even looking into social sporting clubs to be a part of.
