I have Schizoaffective Disorder. For many years my emotions have been on a roller coaster ride. Sometimes I feel really happy, other times depressed. But what lingered persistently is anxiety. It never seemed to go away. I struggled with anxiety for a very long time- for more than 10 years.
Someone I knew had been practicing hypnotherapy but I thought, will it work for me? After all I have mental illness. I often wondered how it could benefit me. For the last two years I’ve been working as a relief security guard and anxiety has made me come home to bouts of diarrhea and constipation- I developed Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It made my condition even worse.
The person I knew suggested that I gave hypnotherapy a try. I told myself why not? It could only benefit me and do no harm and so I did an appointment. Traditionally, hypnotherapy is done on site but my therapy will be done online through web conferencing.
I came into therapy not knowing what to expect. I just need to believed that it will work although a little skepticism did linger on my mind.
My therapist did some pep talk based on the form that I filled in prior to the session. Then slowly I was brought into hypnosis. I followed the steps and I listen to her voice telling me to go deeper into my conscience. Slowly but surely I was in hypnosis.
Contrary to believes, hypnosis doesn’t make you unconscious and it’s not like you don’t know what you are talking about. But you will speak differently because it comes from your subconscious mind.
As I progressed into the therapy, I feel relax and calm.
I finished my first therapy session after 2 hours.
My next follow up session will be in 21 days’ time. Meanwhile I will be listening to a hypnotherapy recording consistently for 21 days.
Outcome of therapy:
I am pleased to announce that after my first hypnotherapy session, the anxiety I had was completely gone. It has been almost one month that I am anxiety free.
As a security officer, I now have more confidence and I carry myself in a commanding manner. I also enjoy working and I also am feeling very happy at work, often joking around with my colleagues.
I feel so calm even on the most stressful and hectic days. I feel that I can undertake a lot of duties. Now, this may seemed like a mania to you but truly it is not. Mania wouldn’t last this long anyways.
I enjoyed the emotions and confidence that I hold now and I don’t feel as uptight.
Hypnotherapy has truly lifted a burden within me and free me from the anxiety that I had for more than 10 years.
I truly thank my Therapist for helping me and getting me into this amazing journey.
