When someone presents to a hypnotherapist with anxiety related issues, the hypnotherapist will be asking the client questions relating to their thoughts about the future. Unlike stress, which is typically about the current overwhelm a client is facing, anxiety is intense worry about things that usually haven't happened yet but which are playing heavily on the client's mind. Things from the past may be factors contributing to the anxiety e.g., if a parent has died of cancer or diabetes for example, we may worry that we are likely to experience the same conditions too. However, the worries can be curtailed quite easily with the help of hypnotherapy. A hypnotherapist will help you to manage the thoughts, relax with, and feel more confident about, the unknown, and help you to put things in place to ensure you are prepared better for the future. So if you have a job interview coming up and you expect to fail, perhaps beause the last interview you had didn't go well, your hypnotherapist will help you to mentally rehearse and prepare, or reframe the past memories so they don't continue to affect future thoughts or decisions. Your hypnotherapist may also give you techniques you can use when you're feeling anxious to help you relax and control the symptoms very easily.
