From feeling ill at ease to full blown panic attacks, excess anxiety can stop you living the life that you want and deserve. In just a few sessions my aim is to help you back to the life you should be living.
How Hypnotherapy can help Anxiety, Panic and Worry
Many clients who come to me for treatment are suffering from some level of anxiety. If you were one such client my first aim would be to help you experience the deep relaxation that can be acheived through hypnosis. This helps reduce the many uncomfortable symptoms that go with being anxious, worried or panicky. Then, using interactive dynamic hypnotherapy, we would work on releasing the cause of the problem and on building up inner resources such as resilience and confidence so that you can get back on with your life as soon as possible.

There is often a great deal of confusion between stress and anxiety. They are in fact quite different experiences, although they can overlap and if left untreated, are similar in their effects on the body and mind.
Stress tends to be a response to a real event or situation in life, something you may feel you (unwillingly) have to put up with, or that puts you under pressure, a situation where perhaps you feel out of control.
Anxiety is sometimes harder to pin down, but here are some examples.
- It may be the result of a stressful situation. Say you’ve been burgled. For most people that would be a stressful event. But once you’ve dealt with the immediate situation, police, insurance, and fortifying your security, if you’re left constantly worrying about what if…? Or if every little noise at night has your heart pounding, then that’s anxiety.
- A constant but usually low level feeling of disquiet. A slightly fluttering feeling in the stomach, or raised heart rate for no apparent reason. Feeling slightly faint or dizzy when there’s no medical cause.
- Worrying unnecessarily. The imagination is in overdrive, thinking about all sorts of things that could go wrong, but haven’t yet.
- A tendency to over-react to relatively trivial events.
- A feeling of fear, but you don’t know why, or you do know why, but logically it doesn’t make any sense.
It is important to realise that these symptoms, like the racing heart, dry mouth, churning stomach, jelly legs, thoughts running away with you, whilst uncomfortable, are not in themselves dangerous, although in the long term, not particularly good for you either.
The trouble with anxiety is that it has a tendency to feed into itself so that you can end up feeling anxious about your symptoms, thus increasing the overall feelings of dis-ease. This is particularly true of Panic Attacks.
