Countless numbers of people suffer today with some form of anxiety – from mild to severe. For some it is just a mild feeling that comes on from time-to-time and for others it can be extremely limiting and even paralyzing. Hypnotherapy training empowers you with the tools to help to relieve stress, transforms fears, raise self-esteem, and bring more peace of mind to you and to your clients. Learning Hypnotherapy through a true State-Licensed School ensures that you practice within the law and that you have the skills to truly transform people’s lives.
Can a Hypnotherapist “treat” Anxiety?
The answer is yes, however the word “treat” needs to be understood and the term “anxiety” also needs clarification. A licensed practitioner of the healing arts, according to Florida Hypnosis Law, is someone who is able to do therapeutic hypnosis on their own. They can therefore “treat” a mental health condition without the need for prescription, referral, supervision or direction. However, many Hypnotherapists are not considered licensed practitioners of the healing arts and therefore if a client is coming in with a diagnosed condition, then they would need the proper practitioner’s referral for you to be able to work on this. Hypnotherapists generally would not use the word “treat” or “heal”, yet they are trained with the skillsets to resolve many of the symptoms of anxious feelings.

What do we mean by “Anxiety?”
Technically this word relates to a mental health diagnosis, yet many people commonly use the word on a daily basis to describe how they feel, and they do not necessarily suffer from a mental health condition. People feel scared, nervous, anxious, panicky, terrified, and just downright afraid. This is what it means to be human, and our emotions are okay. A Certified Hypnotherapist is capable of resolving many of these uncomfortable feelings with powerful modalities in exceptionally short periods of time. However, if a person is seeing a mental health professional, has a diagnosis and perhaps is on medication, then the Hypnotherapist simply needs to get a referral from the patient’s mental health professional to use hypnosis on the diagnosed condition. It is important to remember however that many people are not diagnosed in this way and simply want to feel better about anxious feelings. Either way, a Hypnotherapist can help. More importantly, a well-trained Hypnotherapist understands the law and knows how to work within it.
Hypnotherapy is a very powerful modality that changes people’s lives forever. It has been shown to bring much more tranquility and peace to countless clients and the patients of referring practitioners.
