Anxiety

Anxiety is exhausting, draining and all encompassing – both mentally and physically.  

We can feel an intense sense of panic or be on edge constantly, causing significant disruption to life.  It also has been proven to contribute to many diseases. Anxiety is the manifestation of our subconscious mind going into protection mode.

Flight or fight – it is an automatic response from our nervous system to warn us and prepare us for dangerous situations. Our bodies release cortisol to our adrenal glands, sometimes causing our bodies to go into overdrive.

 

Anxiety symptoms appear in many forms. Grave symptoms can include:

  • Shaking
  • Racing heart
  • Hot flushes
  • Jelly Legs
  • Tingling in the hand and feet
  • Chest pains
  • Breathlessness
  • Hyperventilation
  • Dizziness
  • Panic attacks
  • Feeling sick
  • Tension headaches

Though often very overwhelming, these symptoms are completely harmless and are actually part of our genetic instinct.

Sometimes the cause of anxiety is easy to pin point, like the fear of needles or exam stress.

However other times, it is less clear and we need to dig deeper to find the root cause.

 

Some psychological symptoms (the thoughts or altered perceptions we have) of anxiety are:

  • Thinking that you may lose control and/or go ‘mad’
  • Thinking that you might die
  • Thinking that you may have a heart attack/be sick/faint/have a brain tumour
  • Feeling that people are looking at you and observing your anxiety
  • Feeling as though things are speeding up/slowing down
  • Feeling detached from your environment and the people in it
  • Feeling like wanting to run away/escape from the situation
  • Feeling on edge and alert to everything around you

Hypnotherapy works effectively by clearing your subconscious of the negative and unhealthy beliefs that drive your anxiety state and replaces calm and relaxation.

We can tailor make this treatment to you, so that you do not have to feel like this anymore.

 

It changes the pattern of future indifference to the situations or experiences that, until now, have been triggering your anxiety. You do not have to avoid situations anymore to avoid anxiety. We teach you techniques for life.

We recommend 3 – 6 sessions.
