Letting go of anxiety

Staying calm in the Covid storm

There is a virus causing an extraordinary storm. The news is alarming. We are  continuously bombarded with numbers: of cases, of people in hospital, of deaths… There is so much insecurity and uncertainty. Anxiety surrounds us.

This course of six group hypnosis sessions is aimed at helping us navigate this challenging period with grace and serenity.

Within each of us, there is a place of stillness and calm. Learning to connect to that place allows us to connect to the calm that is within us, enabling us to stay secure and serene in any situation.

Programme:

Session 1

Relaxing the body and focusing inwards. Leaving the body to rest, taking your mind on a journey to a place of stillness. Visualising being calm and peaceful in a storm.

Session 2

Returning to that place of stillness. Going into a deep relaxation. Creating a sensory anchor to being deeply relaxed. Visualising using sensory anchor to create relaxation in every day settings.

Session 3

Ten step down to deep relaxation. Opening a door into subconscious and visualising inner mental space. Rearranging mental space to make more room for positive, nurturing, reassuring images and thoughts. Visualising positive outcomes.

Session 4

Using the breath to enter a state of relaxation. Learning to switch from anxious to relaxed by taking your mind in and out of place of stillness. Visualising feeling confident and in control.

Session 5

Using sounds to create a state of inner relaxation. Deepening that relaxation with a tactile anchor, such as touching your wrist. Identifying ideas created by the pandemic that trigger anxiety and beginning to transform those ideas.

Session 6

Learning to bring attention downwards and slowing the wheel of thoughts. Creating a strong core idea that represents resilience. Bringing that idea to the centre of your mindspace and allowing it to inform and replace ideas that create anxiety. Returning to place of stillness and reinforcing feelings of security and confidence.

Each session lasts 45 minutes.

You should be lying down in a place where you will not be disturbed as you listen to the session on earphones. There will be an opportunity to interact with me and the other participants for a short time after each session, if you so wish.

The next course starts on December 8th or on January 18th.

Price: 160 euros per person for six sessions

Being zen at the dentist

Going to the dentist is not always an easy experience. For many, it is one that can trigger anxiety or foreboding. Often, patients lie in the dentist’s chair feeling tense or nervous, sometimes fidgeting or being unable to relax, making the experience all the more harder, for both dentist and patient.

 

There is another way! This group hypnosis course uses a visit to the dentist as an example of how to use hypnosis to stay calm and relaxed in a situation that triggers anxiety.

 

Please note that this course is not aimed at those who have a phobia of the dentist but at people who feel uncomfortable going to the dentist and wish to learn how to use hypnosis to manage anxiety in this and other settings. If you have a phobia of the dentist, please book an individual session with me instead.

 

Session 1

Learning to use hypnosis to relax body and mind.

 

Session 2

Learning to relax deeply and creating a sensory anchor to that level of relaxation. Visualising being calm at the dentist.

 

Session 3

Creating a character to represent your anxiety and making that character your friend.

 

Session 4

Learning to switch between being in dentist’s chair and in place of calm in your mind.

 

 

Each session lasts 45 minutes.

You should be lying down in a place where you will not be disturbed as you listen to the session on earphones. There will be an opportunity to interact with me and the other participants for a short time after each session, if you so wish.

The four sessions run on four consecutive days or on one Saturday a week for four weeks. Choose which suits you best.
