Post Election Stress Disorder, also known as PESD, can absolutely be treated and improved with hypnotherapy. One of the benefits of clinical hypnosis is being able to relieve someone's anxieties, fears and phobias. The general hypnotherapy process for PESD works as follows:
The individual will be placed in a relaxing hypnotic state. During this time, the hypnotherapist will try to reach the root of the stress, anxiety, fear, behavior, etc. There will be certain experiences, beliefs and stimuli that will emerge as the culprit behind the pain point. In the instance of PESD, the affected individual might be experiencing shock, denial, pain, guilt, anger, blame and even depression surrounding the results of the election.
The hypnotherapist will then proceed to embed positive messages and solutions to relieve the stressful feelings. With PESD, I instruct my clients during our hypnosis session that nothing is permanent and everything first starts that emotion running with a thought. Program that thought to be different. Instead of wanting to feel post election stress, feel happy about your corner of the universe and all those that you love who are in it. If you have faith in something you are more likely to follow through, so it's all about having faith in your thoughts and beliefs.
A large percentage of Americans went out and voted during this past election; it was an unprecedented turnout. So when the results were announced clearly the losing side would feel the inevitable pain. It is ok having that undeniable pain because it is natural, but the actual suffering of that pain is optional. PESD pain can be relieved by simply changing your thoughts surrounding the outcome of the election. A hypnotherapist can help guide you through that process so you can shift your negative thinking and behavior towards a more positive, long-term solution.
