We’ve recently been interviewed on radio stations around the country about our special approach to anxiety reduction and why hypnosis and breathing techniques work so well together.
So in brief here is our answer:
We know when someone is anxious and full of negative thoughts, they shallow breath. It’s a scientific fact… NOT our fact. The truth is that anxiety cannot be present in the mind and body if someone is feeling safe and centered.
The combination of negative thinking and lack of quality in breathing is the duo that needs to be addressed.
Without dealing with these issues, anxiety can restrict the quality of life. Sadly, it also affects relationships with family and friends too. They mean well but… it’s very hard for someone who doesn’t have anxiety to truly understand the depth of it. This makes it very difficult for suffers to talk openly, as they often feel misunderstood and tend to hide their true feelings for fear of it exacerbating.
Anxiety is not a life sentence, although it can feel like it for many people when it becomes a habit.
There is a brilliant study to back up what many neuroscientists know as we do too, that the deeper part of the mind can learn very quickly how to un-learn anxiety and re-learn healthier logical coping strategies.
The study was (and still is) a review of psychotherapy literature by Dr Barrios, which was originally featured in the The Psychotherapy Journal of the American Psychiatric Association which showed some impressive findings indeed.
After surveying over 2000 journal articles, Dr. Alfred Barrios came up with the following recovery rates:
Type of therapy Recovery rates Number of sessions Hypnotherapy 93% 6 Behavior therapy 72% 22 Psychoanalysis 38% 600

Nobody needs to suffer with anxiety. Life can be so much better when you work with the clever part of the mind. It does know how to tune out of negativity. It just needs the right guidance and support.
