Can Hypnotherapy Help with Overcoming Feeling Nervous or Anxious at Work?

Work and leisure don’t typically go hand in hand, but if your feelings about work and business are leading you to routinely feeling nervous or anxious then you may benefit from treatment such as hypnotherapy.

The Latin word for leisure is “otium,” whereas the word for work (or business) is “negotium” (or simply “not work” in English). Those ancient Romans knew how to separate work time from leisure time, at least linguistically, but how many of us blur the lines today and often for the worse? If the stress of work bleeds into your leisure time, it may be the right time to look into treatment solutions like hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy and Confidence

Modern workplaces can be incredibly demanding places where employees may feel pressured to consistently deliver results, the need to fit in to the so-called workplace “culture,” and only leave them feeling insufficient at times. “Fake it until you make it” might give short-term results but end up with you feeling a lack of confidence or that you’re not doing “good enough” to appease others.

Your confidence is something that can lead you to neither being able to withstand faking it nor making it, which can further decrease your confidence and lead to a spiralling sense of self-esteem and worth.

Hypnotherapy might not be the first thing that comes to mind in overcoming problems you may be experiencing vis-a-vis your workplace, but indeed hypnotherapy can be extremely effective at addressing these problems.


Why Do You Feel Nervous or Anxious at (or Thinking About) Work?

People may feel nervous or anxious at work – or thinking about work – for a wide range of reasons. The so-called “Sunday scaries” are real for many out there, and while it may be reasonable to not feel excited about having to wake up for the morning routine on Monday, a crippling feeling of anxiety could be a strong sign that you may need treatment.

Some of the more common reasons why people feel nervousness or anxiety about work could be from a fear of public speaking, feeling insufficient at meetings, feeling left out of groups in the office, or simply feeling like you’re “not good enough” for the tasks assigned to you. Many of these problems can usually be traced to confidence and self-esteem, but we quite often look at the symptoms themselves and try to patch them with solutions like “just take a course on public speaking and the fear will go away,” for example, often not really solving the problem at its root.

How Hypnotherapy Can Help You Overcome Nervousness or Anxiety at Work

Since your specific needs and circumstances may vary drastically from others experiencing nervousness or anxiety at work, the hypnotherapist will create a solution that seeks to understand them, followed by addressing your subconscious and the triggers that enable those feelings or thoughts.

Hypnotherapy doesn’t work by treating the specific symptom directly (such as in the example above about taking a public speaking course), but instead will get to the root of the feelings and thoughts by entering the subconscious and inserting positive and reinforcing messaging that can, in turn, lead to fundamental changes and gradual improvement.

Many such cases involve confidence and self-esteem, which are both typically targeted by a hypnotherapist in the subconscious.
