Some relationships are seemingly effortless, while others require a dedicated commitment to reach a level of understanding, acceptance and compromise in order to make them work. However, when relationship dynamics are built on principles that are mainly favorable for one side and not so much for the other, the relationship can become a source of stress and anxiety that is sustained by feelings of guilt or obligation. Healthy boundaries make for healthy relationships- let's work on that!
While under a state of hypnosis, referred to as a “trance” state, your hypnotherapist can help your mind and body become connected in a way that is not normally accessible, through the use of suggestions that are meant to elicit the changes that you are looking to make. Not everyone is a good candidate for hypnotherapy.

Dealing with what is oftentimes an “invisible” condition can be an overwhelming experience on so many different levels. You are often misunderstood, invalidated and your feelings minimized by even those closest to you. Understanding how to manage the various challenges that you encounter and educating yourself are the best ways to begin to feel more in control of your situation.
Adults who as children grow up in a household where their emotional needs were met with avoidance, rejection, scolding, or even over-indulgence are oftentimes left to figure out how to deal with their emotional needs on their own. The challenge, however, is that you don’t know what you don’t know, and if as a child no one ever taught you that your feelings and emotions are important and valid, you may grow up to become an adult who suppresses, avoids or ignores them in order to cope.
When anxiety takes over your mind and body, it not only changes how you perceive yourself, it can change how you perceive the world. For some people, it comes in the form of discomfort or awkwardness in social situations, while for others, it can stem from feeling out of control of your situation or even knowing that something needs to change but not knowing where to start. Effective treatment for anxiety requires a combination of mind, body and practical skills.
