Anxiety is worry about an event, situation or potential future outcome that ranges from undesirable to calamitous. Sometimes for ourself, sometimes for others or both. We can as people be in similar situations yet have completely different responses. You may be cool as a summer cucumber and I could be as anxious as a long tailed cat in a rocking chair factory.

Anxiety has some things to do with fear, aggression, control, environment, genetics … the list goes on. Yet we most likely all have had some direct experience of anxiety so we understand the term. And most of the time its not pleasant and can feel very disempowering because of emotions and thoughts of helplessness.

There are arrays of pharmaceutical companies creating a variety of drugs that are targeted at the fairly large array of ‘anxiety disorders’, over 100 books on how to beat anxiety yet its still a problem.

Anxiety Hypnotherapy Newcastle

Perhaps the real cause of psychological anxiety could be found in Budhism, Zen, Hinduism or any of the contemplative spiritual traditions where the ‘illusion of a separate self’ or an individual ‘I’ is the cause of suffering. We can also ponder that anxiety is a learned behaviour in both thinking gone wild, out of control and equally the bodily stress response which can support and fuel it.

As an idea, if you could not separate, lets say frustration between your mind-body, that is being that experience, would you still feel-perceive frustration or could you just be frustration? Now, depending on how you reacted emotionally to that idea, you have either become open or closed to that possibility of change.

Our responses, your willingness to explore an idea has some relationship to your fixed ways of thinking and being in the world. Fixed ways of thinking and being in some sense define our current potential. So this Trance Cafe, exploring psychological change and hypnotherapy will be exploring how strong positive emotions can affect some real change.
