Hypnosis for Anxiety in Boca Raton, Florida
Why use hypnosis for anxiety?
Anxiety is very unpleasant and, indeed, it’s contagious. That overwhelming sensation of apprehension and tension creeps up on you sometimes without warning and it just takes over. It could be triggered by something you are aware of, or you might just wake up in the morning feeling anxious and miserable, really miserable.
Hypnosis for anxiety has been used therapeutically with great results for many years and has a long history of providing help with coping with anxiety. I often see people that suffer from anxiety and live with anxiety for many years. Anxiety can be related to every day issues, to dealing with chronic illness, to stressful relationships but by definition, anxiety is an “intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Often, anxiety disorders involve repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear or terror that reach a peak within minutes (panic attacks)”
I cannot say enough GREAT things about Shirly! She really cares about people and it shows. I came to her full of panic attacks, anxiety and stress. She is incredibly amazing and doesn’t just offer therapy she offers so much more. Instead of just having you talk about your problems she gives you a positive thing to replace it with and teaches you how to help yourself so you aren’t relying on a therapist but you can eventually help yourself with your problems. She offers so many things to try and you find what works for you. She uses your own wording and suggestions. I tried meditating for years with no luck. Ever since going to her I am able to meditate 40 minutes a night and have a more calm and peaceful overall feeling. I cannot recommend her enough! I had given up hope on ever fixing my problems until I saw her. Now I am able to live a normal peaceful life. She is a holistic practitioner using hypnosis, mindfulness, behavior therapy, homeopathy and nutrition. She can help with issues such as: fears and phobias, self-esteem, anxiety, depression and more and with her you get quick results! December 2018
Hypnosis for test anxiety
Test anxiety is very specific. You can be fine in other areas of your life, but suffer from severe anxiety before and during tests. This condition is very frustrating, mostly because it prevents you from showing your true potential. You are bright. You know the material well, but the minute you sit down to take that test your system goes into high alert, as if the test poses a real threat to you and you feel paralyzed. I have had clients that could not sleep at all for one or two nights before the exam. I have had clients that would sit to take a test and experience intense heart palpitations as they fight to suppress the overwhelming desire to get up and leave. Sadly enough, anti-anxiety medications taken before a test often reduce your ability to recall information and process problems properly. Very often this condition gets worse over time. People become anxious about becoming anxious. It’s a vicious cycle. Well, there is a solution for your problem. I will implement behavioral techniques to help you cope as hypnosis for anxiety that is specific to your test anxiety. We will discuss some calming supplements that you can take that enhance your cognitive abilities while calming your nervous system. The results are quick and effective. In as little as three sessions we can get you on a path of successful test taking.

Shirly Gilad helped me during a very difficult time in my life. I was diagnosed with cancer and without Shirly’s personal and professional support I would not be where I am today. Throughout the ups and downs of my diagnosis, surgery, and treatments she was there for me to guide me and help me.
Shirly Gilad’s vast knowledge in many areas helped me greatly in understanding the disease process as well as what every step of my treatment entailed. She accompanied me to doctor’s visits and advocated for me. She knew what to ask during the visits and knew how to best explain things to me. Her guidance in nutrition was priceless and her recommendations still guide what I eat and the supplements I take to date.
Shirly’s graduate education in family nursing and human behavior helped me to better understand and accept the physical and psychological processes that I was going through. She directed me on how to use meditation and relaxation techniques that were crucial during this very stressful time in my life.
Her endless giving and caring make her a very unique professional. I have no words to describe how much she meant to me and how essential she was for my recovery.
