Case Study: Hypnotherapy for Anxiety & OCD
To be honest, as silly as it might sound, I actually feel like I can breathe again, if that makes sense.
Angela came to me after experiencing decades of anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
She had already tried lots of things including traditional therapy and alternative therapies including essential oils, dietary supplements, meditation and mindfulness strategies and more. And although she experienced some relief from these techniques, she found she was on a continual cycle of anxiety that would come in waves which she described as like being on a rollercoaster travelling along smoothly for a while, before ascending into what would become a descending spiral.
The OCD impacted on this woman daily in the form of checking locks on doors repeatedly and checking the alarm was set repeatedly, in particular when her husband was away.
Here’s some of what Angela said:
The OCD patterns created a lot of stress and anxiety, as well as wasted time going back and forth and sometimes resulting in her having to return home just to check once again before she could continue on with her day.
The client came to me, initially sceptical about whether this could work for her because she had resigned herself to idea that she was stuck with it and this was just who she was, an anxious person with some quirky OCD traits to contend with.
The client responding incredibly well to the hypnotic suggestions and I knew immediately she would be a great candidate for Rapid Transformational Therapy.
What makes a great candidate you might ask? Well someone who is very open to the idea that this can help them ( your mind is very powerful and if you think it won’t, it won’t and if you think it will, then it will) and someone who is willing to trust the process, relax into the process and allow me to guide them knowing they are in full control of what they do or don’t say.
So after just 1 session of Rapid Transformational Therapy and about 14 days of listening to the personalised hypnosis audio I created for her, the client began to notice some subtle and then not so subtle shifts.
