The sparrows in front of the Louvre in Paris are fearless. Somehow, they were able to set themselves free.
Free-to-play their game of life.
This page of the Toronto Hypnosis Clinic website deals with the subject of healing anxiety.
It shows how my Toronto Anxiety Clinic services - a subsection of the Toronto Hypnosis Clinic services - actually do work for others and how they can work for you too.
Bart (aged 31 years) came to the Toronto Anxiety Clinic in April of 2011.
What follows is his story, which includes the list of his anxiety related complaints.
I present his case here using his own words.
“I experienced anxiety feelings for the first time when my wife took me to church about a year ago.
At that time, out of nowhere I experienced a panic attack. My heart was racing...
I started heaving health related fears.
My second major attack of anxiety happened also out of nowhere in a grocery store.
My health related fears escalated to the point, at which I quit smoking out of fear of premature death.
I used to smoke pack and a half a day since I was sixteen.
I became afraid of driving during the night.
I used to work as a truck driver, doing very early morning deliveries, and my fear of driving became so bad that, I had to quit my job.
While driving at night, I feared that something would happen, and nobody would find me to help me during some emergency situation.
Whenever I am alone at home, persistent, negative, anxiety filled thoughts enter my mind.
My anxiety filled obsessive thoughts are telling me that I have a heart problem, that I will die of cancer...
There are also thoughts in my mind telling me that I will die early, much before my “natural” time.
I am also plagued by anxiety related obsessive behaviors.
I feel compelled to check and rechecked locking the door, turning the stove off... I check and recheck everything repeatedly before leaving my house.”
I usually ask my Toronto Anxiety Clinic clients about their childhood, and what follows is what Bart said about his childhood experiences:
“I was a very sensitive child.
I was very naive and easily believed everything.
My father was a tyrant who used to force me into many things against my will.
He would force me to eat, and used to beat me whenever I tried to oppose him.
When my father noticed that I was afraid of something, he would force me into that fear in order to “cure” me.
For example, when he realized that I was afraid of darkness, he locked me up in a closet, and was going to keep me there, until my fear of darkness was gone.
There was a time in my life when I used to panically fear my father.”
What I quoted above was what Bart had said during his first session at the Toronto Anxiety Clinic.
Regardless of the case, each client of the Toronto Anxiety Clinic goes first through the information gathering session.
Based on the information gathered from Bart, during his information gathering session - I decided to help him heal his anxiety via simple use of trance based hypnosis.
I have not done any “energy work” with Bart, and want to show - using his case - that my Toronto Anxiety Clinic services are in no way stuck in any preconceived therapy rut.
Even though, I do write a lot about my energy-based approach to healing anxiety, my Toronto Anxiety Clinic services are totally flexible and capable of addressing all kinds of individual needs of my clients.
I cannot tell you why I decided to use with Bart a simple trance based hypnotic approach, instead of non-hypnotic energy work, aimed at the dissolution of anxiety on the energetic level of its existence.
After more that two decades of working with anxiety issues, my Toronto Anxiety services are largely driven by my intuition, in terms of the method of choice in each particular case.
When Bart came to the Toronto Anxiety Clinic for his third session, (second working session of anxiety healing hypnosis) he offered the following report:
“During the week after our first session of anxiety healing hypnosis I felt much better.
My last week was almost totally free from anxiety!
I must say that, I approached out first session of anxiety healing hypnosis with a significant degree of “distance”.
I was simply afraid of hypnosis.
When you started speaking to me in hypnosis I felt POWER.
I felt POWER... As if that POWER wanted to enter me in order to perform some work on me, and initially I was afraid.
Later during the session, I calmed down, and what you were saying to me was influencing me in a powerful way.
Your words were reaching me with great POWER.
During the whole time of our anxiety healing session of hypnosis, I felt some strange unfamiliar POWER.
As if this POWER wanted to do something with me.
I wasn’t asleep.
I was aware that, at any moment I could just stand up and walk away, if I only wanted to do so.”
My total number of anxiety healing session with Bart was four.
What follows is what Bart said after his third anxiety healing session at the Toronto Anxiety Clinic.
“I can say that my last week was normal.
I did experience a very short spike of anxiety, but was able to get rid of it, simply utilizing my new - anxiety dissolving - way of thinking.
This new - liberating me from anxiety - way of thinking was not available to me before I came the the Toronto Anxiety Clinic.
I consider this new anxiety dissolving way of thinking as my most important gain, resulting from our anxiety healing sessions.
I was greatly helped through our anxiety healing sessions.
I don’t have to walk around with my nerve calming pills anymore...”
What Bart’s anxiety healing story shows is that, he was greatly helped by just a few sessions, which he received at the Toronto Anxiety Clinic.
Bart - knowing that our work at the Toronto Anxiety Clinic - had a very powerful, anxiety healing effect on him, has not come again, asking for more sessions.
This means that, what we have achieved, in terms of healing his anxiety at the Toronto Anxiety Clinic has been a permanent alteration of his former, anxiety ridden life.
In closing of this page of the Toronto Hypnosis Clinic website, I want to say that, what Bart and I have achieved via our personal contact - can be also attained via the usage of my anxiety-healing, custom-designed, hypnotic audio-recordings.
My custom-designed, anxiety-healing, hypnotic audio recordings are available to all of my local, and long-distance clients worldwide.
