Anxiety preoccupies your mind and can serious restrict and affect your quality of life.
A certain amount of anxiety can be dealt with naturally, as long as it stays within our ‘safe levels’. However, when it becomes too much for you to cope with it can affect your quality of life an can even start to take over and control what you can or can’t do and effect those around you. Hypnotherapy for anxiety reduces your anxiety levels now and helps you to understand why it is happening and how you can prevent the anxiety reoccurring in the future.
Excessive or prolonged stress can lead to illness, physical and emotional exhaustion, increased anxiety or even panic attacks. When you come under excessive pressure from your home, work or social factors, you will tend to respond with either anxiety, anger or depression or a combination of all three.
In the therapy room we hear frequently “everyone worries, don’t they?” – well, no they don’t! Of course there are times when we worry about something in particular which passes when the problem is resolved or the situation changes, but anxiety isn’t just worrying.
Anxiety and anxiety disorders could be described as ‘extreme worrying’ and sometimes even become an OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) or manifest itself in physical illnesses such as IBS or other mental or emotional issues, some of which are listed on the right. Many of our clients describe their anxiety as a constant fear or dread, waking up in the morning feeling panicky but with no idea why, nausea in the pit of their stomach or sudden fear that overwhelms them for no apparent reason. People experience anxiety in difference ways, but if it has started to control your life or you are making decisions based on avoiding situations which you know will bring on the anxiety and not doing things you would like to do, then maybe it is time to seek help.
Many people find help for anxiety in hypnotherapy which gives you the ability to cope in different situations in a calm and effective way; it is probably the number one reason why clients see us.
