Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy & Life Coaching
Hypnosis is an effective modality to address High Functioning Anxiety. Meridian Peak Hypnosis works with clients around the world via Skype and Apple FaceTime.

High Functioning Anxiety is a catch-all term referring to people who live with anxiety and identify themselves as functioning reasonably well.

If you have High Functioning Anxiety, you probably notice your anxiety propelling you forward vs. freezing you in fear. On the surface you can appear to be successful, have-it-together and calm and excel at work and in life, although the way you actually feel on the inside may be very different.

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) estimates approximately 18 percent of the population fall into the category of High Functioning Anxiety. This is an essentially silent anxiety, hidden behind a smile or confident appearance.

What High Functioning Anxiety Looks Like

Someone with High Functioning Anxiety can be the picture of success:

• Arriving to work earlier than everyone else
• Dressed well, hair styled nicely
• Never missing deadlines
• Always willing to help
• Social schedule always busy/full
• Very detail oriented
• Proactive
• Appearing calm on the outside
• Extremely loyal in relationships

But what others may not know, and you’d never share is:

• You’re fighting a constant feeling of anxiety
• Fear of failure is a regular concern
• Fear of disappointing others scares you to death
• You desperately need a day off but are too afraid of letting someone down

Negative Habits and Characteristics of a High Functioning Anxiety Person

• Nervous habits (nail biting, cracking knuckles, pulling hair, biting lip)
• Needing to do compulsive, repetitive things
• Overthinking
• Needing reassurance
• Procrastination
• Avoiding eye contact
• Insomnia
• A racing mind
• Inability to enjoy the moment
• Tendency to compare yourself to others
• Mental and physical fatigue
• Loyalty to fault in relationships
• Potential for using alcohol or other substances as a coping method

Hypnosis Helps Reverse Symptoms of High Functioning Anxiety

Hypnosis works with your powerful subconscious mind which is the part of you that stores automated behaviors and reactions. Meridian Peak practitioners guide you into the hypnotic state where we remove actions that no longer serve you and replace them with new ones that do.

Hypnosis introduces new habits and helps put away the old ones so a person alters their behavior in an automated way. Hypnosis creates new habits and routines that benefit your health and well-being.

Hypnosis is proven more effective than traditional counseling

In a study in American Health Magazine, hypnosis and hypnotherapy have a 93% success rate compared with lower results from other methods of therapy which require far more sessions.  Click here to learn more about hypnosis and its high success rate.
