Hypnotherapy for Agoraphobia & How It Works
Using hypnotherapy regression techniques, most people are able to quickly resolve the cause of agoraphobia and the symptoms. This eliminates the need for coping techniques and often prescription drug regimens aimed at the agoraphobia symptoms (not the cause). This is not a replacement for your physicians instructions. We encourage you to check with your physician before attempting any new therapies. We commonly work with our client’s health professional to provide well-rounded adjunct solutions when needed. Success from any kind of coaching, medical or hypnosis process cannot be guaranteed. Individual results will vary greatly and in accordance to your commitment, effort, determination, hard work, and ability to follow directions.
Next, hypnotherapy allows you to take your first steps outside (that flooding technique) in the comfort of your own mind. The hypnotherapy treatment for agoraphobia is similar to hypnotherapy for panic disorder but will also begin to help you combat depression and low self esteem as well as more extensive exposure to avoided situations and places.
The hypnotherapist who will work with you knows that the fear finds its roots in your subconscious. The subconscious mind has tremendous power to influence your autonomic nervous system. This is the reason why deep breathing is so ineffective in helping people control a panic attack. All deep breathing does is try and restore calm to the body. Your body and its chemistries are already in action preparing you to physically defend yourself. Trying to mentally calm the body at this point is like shutting the gate after the horse has bolted. Being familiar with your situation, your hypnotherapist will work with you over the phone, or in the privacy of your own home, getting you to the point of where you are comfortable greeting the outside world again, with Agoraphobia being just a faint, uncomfortable memory.
Hypnotherapy can help retrain the subconscious so handling emotions comes easily and without effort. Once a behavior takes on a new color, other people’s stereotypes and resolve about that person will change too. Our clients find a positive side to their life that they only dreamed existed.
