Hypnosis: If you're willing, hypnosis with a well-trained hypnotist can help you with anxiety. You can learn how to hypnotize yourself also. Qualified hypnotists can be found through the american society for clinical hypnosis: http://www.Asch.Net/public/memberreferralsearch/tabid/182/default.Aspx also you can learn mindfulness based stress reduction: http://www.Umassmed.Edu/content.Aspx?Id=41254.

Yes, it can: See a certified hypnotherapist. They can help with stress modification and help with some of the triggers of your anxiety. If you're on anti-anxiety medication, see a psychiatrist who also uses hypnosis.
