Anxiety: Alyssa

Health Care Benefits
Austin, TX

I've had problems with confidence and worry my whole life, but it really showed up in my last job. I was constantly anxious and worrying about everything and the fear gave me trouble sleeping. I wasn't remembering things and I was out of it all the time because I was so tired. My insomnia was stress induced and I didn't feel good at all. I remember talking to my brother on the phone when he mentioned that he was really worried because I wasn't making any sense.

I wasn't thinking about the big picture and I wasn't performing very well at work. I was so overwhelmed because I was constantly worried about what other people were thinking of me and I second-guessed everything. It's been hard for my boyfriend and I noticed that he was starting to see me as some anxiety ridden person, not the person he used to know. I went on a trip with my family and I was just obsessing about things, they saw me going down the wrong path and I felt out of control because of the constant fear. I just didn't feel like myself.

I've done acupuncture, psychotherapy, exercise, yoga, and tried different herbs to help me with the anxiety. I think I overloaded and didn't know what I was doing. Some of the herbs actually made me feel a little bit more anxious. I kept trying different things because I wasn't solving the problem. Therapy wasn't a good experience for me, I felt really rushed and I didn't like that feeling, I just couldn't relax. I tried another psychotherapist in the past and got nothing out of it.

I heard about A New Day Hypnosis on Citysearch. I was at my wits end and I felt like it was my last hope. I read the reviews and some of them sounded just like me. I remember reading about a woman who was an accountant and our situation was identical, so I decided to try it for myself.

Immediately, I started noticing how my mind was operating and became aware of my thought patterns. It felt like a complete mental shift. I'm sleeping better now, I'm more able to exercise, I'm more energetic and I'm thinking more clearly. I feel more in control now because I'm not worrying about things as much. It's helping me to feel more confident. I'm not worried about what people think. I can talk to senior level management and I see where my strengths are and I'm getting back to feeling like I can move forward.

The most important benefit for me has been changing my mindset and my thinking. I have better perspective and I'm not taking things personally anymore. This process has really helped me to realize that I am a good person. I would recommend A New Day Hypnosis because Laura keeps going deeper with things and makes me think about what is really going on. She gives me homework assignments, which have helped me with momentum and moving forward. I'm confident that I have a good base to keep going. I feel more alert and rested and really feel like my old self has come back and that's amazing to me.
