A group of Maverick hypnotherapists are claiming that they have found the solution to curing anxiety and stopping panic attacks. Some of them are even claiming that they can reverse depression. Speaking for hypnotherapists Alex Evans, from the aptly named Change 4 the Better hypnotherapy practice in Norwich said that “hypnotherapists have known that depression is an issue maintained in the subconscious mind for years and can be reversed”.
Health officials stumped
Doctors have found anxiety and depression very frustrating, many opting to deal with it as a physiological issue prescribing antidepressants even though it has been recently proved that placebo was more effective.
Officials at the NHS are still very confused as how to approach anxiety and depression still opting for conscious therapies like Counselling and CBT. Hypnotherapists all over the country are baffled by this as mental issues are in the realm of the subconscious mind where beliefs and memories are stored.
Experts are working hard on understanding the complexities of the mind. One said that everyone’s mind is different due to genetics, different life experiences and ones individual experiences. Frankly we are finding it very difficult and uncooperative to work with.
No change on the horizon
We asked some big Pharmaceutical company’s about the hypnotherapists findings but most would not comment though one said off the record that there was no money in curing people, what ever that meant?
Alex Evans when asked if hypnotherapy could help everyone said “only the ones who were ready to change and came willing to use their imaginations could be helped. There are some people who’s minds are closed to this type of therapy and had already decided that there is no help for them which made him sad”
He also said that talking and exposure therapies compound anxious and depressive thoughts making patients feel worse. Hypnotherapy is fast, direct, effective and most clients are able to move on from anxiety after just 4 sessions he claimed.
Alex Evans told us “knowledge is power, and when people have the information that you can change your mindset, mental issues become less scary”
