One of Melvin’s favourite issues to deal with are anxiety and stress. In fact, his own anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is what pushed him towards experiencing hypnotherapy. Once he felt how relaxed his body was, he became a hypnojunkie.
Anxiety and stress are no joke. They can seriously impact a person’s ability to function. There are many different treatment options available for anxiety, but one lesser known form of therapy is hypnosis. Hypnotherapy is even included as part of the Mayo Clinic’s Complementary and Integrative Medicine program.
Melvin has had great success at reducing the frequency of panic attacks for those with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).
Melvin has frequently worked with veterans and sexual abuse survivors to help reduce their nightmares and flashbacks associated with post traumatic stress. Melvin has also been certified in Trauma Recovery by the American Hypnosis Association.
A medical referral (or therapist referral) might be necessary if one has been diagnosed with PTSD.
