Firstly the deep relaxation you experience in hypnosis successfully counteracts a great deal of the anxiety and enables you to feel relaxed, grounded and stress-free. Secondly, hypnosis can help to deconstruct the anxiety by working directly with the unconscious mind, relieving feelings of panic and restoring you back to a state of inner harmony. You will feel much calmer, and more able to lead your life free from panic as a result of hypnotherapy. By helping you to adopt more positive ways of thinking and acting, hypnotherapy can significantly improve quality of life. Regular practice of self-hypnosis can also be very beneficial in aiding relaxation.
Anxiety is experienced by many people at different times in their lives. Everyone gets anxious from time to time and this is perfectly normal. It’s when anxiety increases in intensity and frequency, becoming overwhelming and chronic, that something needs to be done about it. Fortunatley, Hypnotherapy is a remarkably effective treatment for panic attacks and anxiety. Whether you are suffering from extreme anxiety without obvious cause, or mild panic attacks in specific situations; hypnotherapy can help!
Potential Symptoms Of Anxiety:
- Are you often worried or on edge?
- Do you suffer from intrusive thoughts that wont go away?
- Do you find it hard to relax?
- Are you very nervous or jumpy?
- Do you think something bad will happen if you dont do certain things?
- Are you easily panicked by thoughts that you have forgot or lost something?
Anxiety can often lead to a vicious circle where we worry about the problem, so we feel more anxious which makes us worry even more. Some people experience ‘panic attacks’ which can feel very frightening indeed, with people often describing how they thought they were going to die, usually of a heart attack.A panic attack occurs as a result of a continuation of this problem. We all still have an inbuilt fight or flight system within us, this helped us thousands of years ago so we could run away from an animal attack, or so we could chase prey. Of course we still can use this to get us away from danger, but nowadays we are more likely to be experiencing similar symptoms as a result of worrying about bills or even being stuck in a traffic jam. Our bodies produce exactly the same chemicals when we are stuck in a traffic jam as they do in a situation where real danger might occur. So our bodies prepare us for danger by increasing heart rate (so blood can pump faster and heal cuts quicker) also increasing breathing rate (to provide more oxygen to run faster) and providing us with chemicals such as adrenalin. This is a key chemical which helps to boost heart rate, also suppressing digestion.
It is important for a sufferer to realise the input that our minds have in this situation. Due to the increase in breathing rate, carbon dioxide levels can drop, this not an 'anxiety attack' makes a person feel dizzy. The chemicals involved can also give us tingling feelings, and the increase in heart rate can make a person feel like they are having a heart attack - all these feelings can lead sufferers to have lost control over their bodies when in fact, what is happening is our bodies reacting to a stimulus which we have been worrying about. It is just our perceptions that need to be changed, so we can realise just what IS happening and what IS NOT happening, then we learn to change our perceptions which can help us to not be so worried. Using a combination of Hypnotherapy, NLP and Time Line Therapy Techniques, I have helped many people deal with their anxieties by helping them to install new choices into their old behaviours and learning new ways to cope better, so that in time you may be free from the anxiety that has bothered you for so long.
