Whether you are a musician, are regularly speaking in public or have the fear of public speaking, an actor or an athlete, we’d work together in restoring your confidence in being able to use that adrenalin to your advantage. We would also co-create a performance situation that, in your imagination, goes well for you. Then using hypnosis, that experience would be reinforced, And in this way positive change will have begun and a new behavioural pattern will have started to form. From then on, the more it’s reinforced the more it becomes the new normal. But that needn’t be loads of sessions; it’s as many as you need.
Anxiety is powered by adrenaline to help with the flight response, but so too is excitement. In some instances, (but not all), anxiety is a misinterpretation of that burst of adrenaline. We may in fact have been experiencing thrilling, life-affirming excitement instead.
But if we’re not sure why we’ve felt a burst of adrenalin, and have no reason to feel excited, it seems natural enough to interpret the feeling as anxiety.
It’s possible that your mind is preparing you for change. And change, as you can imagine, is potentially exciting. Change can also be anxiety-inducing if you’re uncertain or it’s unknown where that change might lead you. In a way, anxiety is a bi-product of our lives not being predictable and pre-determined.
If we knew in advance about every event that was going to happen throughout our lives, there’d be no nourishment for our anxiety.
