Question: Can anxiety be treated with hypnotherapy? Crystal Dwyer: Anxiety can be alleviated in a very powerful way with hypnosis and hypnotherapy. I have a funny story. I called a client of mine, Ann, and asked her to do a testimonial for me on a DVD that I was producing and she said, Crystal, I am sorry. I don't feel good about doing that. I really haven't lost any weight. And I said, Ann, we discussed in our intake the possibility of losing weight and we talked about it for a minute, but I said, What we addressed in your hypnosis session was your intense anxiety that you had over losing the people you love, specifically your husband and your mother, and you were, you know, it was keeping you awake at nights. You were having a hard time functioning. It was causing digestive issues and it was sort of haunting you all the time. And she said, Oh my goodness, I forgot about that. She said, that's right. You took me from sobbing to laughing in the session, and she said, that is so strange because I completely forgot that that was a problem for me, and she goes, it was a huge problem. And she said, you know, the strange thing is when I think about it, my relationship with my mom this past year has gotten so much better. And she said, I am so sorry, I would be happy to do a testimonial for you." And I then I said, Okay, and then come back and we'll do weight loss another time. But literally, the hypnosis had neutralized her anxiety, and it was a very specific anxiety to the point that it wasn't even present in her life or her awareness anymore, and that's how powerful hypnosis and hypnotherapy can be for anxiety. I have treated lots of people with all kinds of anxiety, fears, phobias, and it's really remarkable and it's very freeing.
