Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Stress

Hypnotherapy for Anxiety and Stress in Northumberland

The terms anxiety and stress are often interchangeable, but there are a number of conditions that fall very specifically into the anxiety bracket.


These include:

  • Agarophobia

  • Generalized anxiety

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorders

  • Panic Attacks

  • Claustrophobia

  • Social Phobias

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder


At its core, anxiety can make us believe that things are worse than they actually are. We all experience it at a low grade (it’s part of our hormonal makeup, and connected to the release of stress hormones), but certain life events or triggers can tip us over the edge. Sometimes the cause is not clear to the sufferer, but it’s a very distressing condition. Stress, on the other hand, will wax and wane with the event in our lives.

So-Hypno uses sleep hypnosis to allow an entirely natural and deeply relaxed state. This gives an opportunity to tap into the recesses of the subconscious mind, an area that we cannot usually access. When in this relaxed state, the brain wave length changes and the subconscious becomes open to suggestion and able to accept solutions. The underlying causes of anxiety or stress can be addressed and a way forward found.
