If you’ve ever had anxieties or fears you know how absolutely debilitated you feel. You may not be able to leave your home; you may feel like you’re having a heart attack with rapid breathing. Fortunately these conditions are very treatable.
Hospital emergency rooms frequently have patients who believe they’re having heart attacks. After a number of tests are conducted, the doctor tells the patient, “You’re not suffering from a heart attack but from anxiety. You should explore ways to relax.” Similarly with Fears, there are irrational beliefs that keep people from undertaking daily tasks such as flying in an airplane or going shopping at a mall or a supermarket. The best way to overcome these conditions is with the use of Behavior Modification techniques, rather than a long drawn out Psychotherapy that may last years. Hypnosis is a Behavior Modification method shown to be remarkably effective with anxieties and fears.
