Hypnosis is of enormous help in reducing stress, fear and worry, though there are two
distinctly different methods of treatment. Whether you need help for a situation like a
driving test for example, or for a more persistent and possibly deeper rooted problem,
hypnosis can help you. The best method for any individuals can really only be determined
by consultation, many people finding that two or three sessions, spread over a month or
so, are sufficient.

Stress is not just a frame of mind however it can be caused by our attitude or outlook and
can be reflexed externally in the way we view the world and the people around us as well
as internally all the way down to the cellular level of our physical being. Stress left
unchecked can create health challenges like high blood pressure, heart problems, obesity,
irritable bowel syndrome, just to name a few. There are those who prescribe various forms
of relaxation directed both externally and internally to relieve the symptoms of stress.

The Fear Response
As we understand the many aspects of fear and the response it has on the body and our
actions in life, we can breathe a little easier knowing that it is in some respects their
working in our best interest. Fear and anxiety are part of our mind and body survival
mechanisms and when working correctly help us in adapting and creating healthy
responses to threat through defensive pattern reflexes.  

Fear is said by many cognitive therapists to be a symptom or action from our body’s alarm
system to automatic thoughts creating the reactions of mobilization, inhibition and
demobilization better known as the fight, flight or freeze response. We recognize the
difference between normal versus pathological anxiety when for some reason the defensive
pattern reflexes stay activated beyond the scope of the present danger or threat.  These
automatic thoughts are our cognitive picture or expectation consciously and or
unconsciously of how that event will unfold and our ability to react or adapt to it in a
favorable way.  The fear response affects almost every system of the body: the
physiological system is activated producing sweating, increased heart rate and dizziness;
the cognitive system in the anticipation of disgrace, rejection or injury; the motivational
system wanting to remove yourself from the traumatic situation, to get away; and the
behavioral body reactions trembling, inhibited speaking and or thinking.

The symptoms of stress, fear are the body’s physical reaction involving the sympathetic
and parasympathetic nervous system and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.  Left
unattended the over stimulation of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system
can result in numerous negative consequences to your physical and mental health.  
Balancing the body’s sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system through hypnosis
and healthy cognitive thought management can balance the sympathetic and
parasympathetic nervous system activation.  By utilizing hypnosis many people have
quickly found the recipe for a long, healthy and happy life which is a baseline of mainly
parasympathetic arousal with mild sympathetic activation for vitality, combined with
occasional sympathetic nervous system spikes to act upon major opportunities or threats.
Reducing the fear and stress in your body and mind will enhance your life and skills and is
used by many of my clients to improve their sports performance, sales and business skills,
as well as creating the positive mind set and daily habits to reach and maintain the healthy
body they desire.

Thanks for the telephone hypnotherapy session
today Scott. It flowed every bit as smoothly as the
in-person work we’ve done. The great thing was
how you helped me focus on what I want to
achieve instead of on my fears about not realizing
it. Getting grounded in body, heart and spirit and
visualizing meeting my client with creative vision
put that to work with yet another prospective client
and I can definitely feel the strength that gives you
on an unconscious level. It was a big help. I
understand the power in your work.

Experts teach us that having confidence and a healthy self-esteem is a necessary tool to
realizing ones full potential in life. To create an abundant, healthy and enjoyable life we need
and cultivate and exercise our ability to manage our beliefs and thoughts in a way that leads
the mind and body toward our intended goals and desires. The Buddha said” We are what we

Self-esteem really is simply having the ability to be happy, to cultivate the feeling of being
worthy, deserving, entitled to assert our needs and wants, and to enjoy the fruits of our
efforts. Confidence is our ability to think and cope with the challenges of life, the experience
that we act appropriately to life and to the requirements of environment.

The purpose of this program is to guide you to a conscious understanding of your current
belief system and its role in formulating the quality of life you currently have, as well as to
asset you in updating outdated and dysfunctional beliefs. Mary one of my past clients who now
has the confidence and esteem she desires said “I not only have the confidence to speak
freely and comfortably for business presentations and I’ve found that my overall confidence
has increased in all areas of my life, I feel more connected, safe and accepted than I ever did
in the past and I truly know what Scott was saying when he said I have everything to look
forward to, and that this present moment is just that, a gift, that’s why they call it the

Imagine having the confidence and esteem to know that all life experiences are gifts, presents
from the universe which allow you to grow, to evolve and to self-actualize, a state of being
that I call Core Spiritual Confidence ©.

Allow yourself to experience the joy that so many have discovered, by strengthening your
core spiritual confidence you will cultivate the ability to trust yourself, to trust in your own
mind and beliefs, in your ability to adapt and change and flow with life, to assess situations
and experience’s and make decisions easily all while feeling safe, secure and in control of your

Thanks so much for your help.  It’s probably a
stretch to claim that hypnosis alone can get you a
job.  With the economy depressed and fierce still,
after good coaching and preparation, being in the
top two or three candidates for a job, and getting
more rejections than I care to admit to, I started to
ask myself if there’s anything I’m doing
unconsciously to take myself out of the running.  
Not only that; the constant rejection can take its
toll, and can also come across unconsciously in
interviews.  That’s when I decided to contact you.

After two sessions together, and 4 good interviews
for different positions, I had a great offer from a
great company.  Again, I know there’s more to it
than hypnosis, but after two years of failure, and
then those two sessions, I was successful.  I’m
absolutely convinced it would not have happened
without the two sessions with you.  Thanks again.
