Using hypnosis to help anxious people relax and feel calm is a great start, but hypnosis offers other valuable opportunities to disrupt the patterns of anxiety, create a different relationship to thoughts and physical symptoms , and to shift the client from avoidance into action.

Educational Objectives:
