Overcome anxiety with the help of hypnosis!

Anxiety is a natural response that gets triggered when we perceive danger or fear, but it's not natural when we react to situations with anxiety and panic attacks for no obvious reasons or about things or situations that are quite "normal" and shouldn't frighten us. Anxiety is a learned response and therefore it can be changed. Hypnosis can help you reconnect with resources that you have in other areas of your life and apply them to your problem to feel in control and empowered.

When to seek help?

Most people experience some forms of anxiety when facing particularly stressful situations and a certain level of anxiety or stress helps us to stay motivated and on track to achieve our goals. But if anxiety becomes severe and interferes with everyday you should seek help. Anxiety can be brought on by a fear of something that happened, or what we think happened and dread happening again. When you suffer from an anxiety disorder it may lead to avoidance of certain situations because you might fear that your anxiety may be triggered.

Symptoms of anxiety:

  • Dizziness
  • feeling light headed
  • reduced attention span
  • shortness of breath
  • restlessness
  • irritability
  • difficulty in concentrating
  • loss of sexual interest
  • headaches
  • loss of appetite
  • muscle tension
  • tightness in the chest
  • sweating
  • insomnia
  • poor performance
  • heart palpitations

Different forms of anxiety

Generalised anxiety disorder

People suffering from generalised anxiety disorder worry extremely about family, money and health. The anxiety interrupts daily life and has been going on for over six months. Everyday issues such as appointments or work can cause the worry and anxiety and for some, just getting through the day can be extremely stressful.

Panic disorder

Panic disorder is characterised by extreme terror, which strikes suddenly without warning. Panic attacks are a common symptom of panic disorder, but that does not mean that everyone who has a panic attack will develop panic disorder.

Social anxiety disorder

Social anxiety disorder is defined by extreme anxiety and discomfort in social situations. It is characterized by fear of being around other people, having to interact with them and being judged negatively by them.

How can hypnotherapy help you to overcome anxiety?

In hypnosis we aim to find the cause of the anxiety and change your perception of the past event and release the emotions attached to it. I also teach you self-hypnosis and other techniques like mindfulness to overcome the anxiety, feel in control and be calmer in your everyday life.
