Anxiety, stress and worry can come from many areas of our lives. Worries about money, debt, relationships, health and work, exams and tests can cause us to feel overwhelmed and unable to cope. Anxiety causes more anxiety and it might be that you are trapped in a world of worry and negativity.
Hypnotherapy is fantastic at helping to lower anxiety. In your sessions we focus on what you would like to achieve in your life, how you will be when the problem is not there. The Solution Focused part of the session works on changing your thinking and directs the mind to more positive aspects of life which anxiety causes you to miss.
The imagination is a powerful tool; if you think about it, worry is just the imagination working negatively. Using hypnosis the mind is relaxed and able to come up with positive solutions to areas that are causing problems. Often clients find that when one area of their life improves others are quick to follow!
Panic attacks can be utterly terrifying. They are your body’s response to a build up of anxiety and negative thinking. When you experience a panic attack you are going into fight-or-flight mode. Your heart beats quickly to send blood around the body so that you can run away. Your digestion stops working, you sweat to cool you down if you run. The symptoms are frightening so that you run away from perceived danger. Most often we don’t run we just think we are dying or going crazy.
Hypnotherapy can help to calm the mind and you will learn to how to regain control in situations that have frightened you It’s worth remembering that you are not having a panic attack all the time!
“Positively looking at aspects of my life became a stronger part of my daily life. Looking for the positive is now an entrenched tool of daily life. Scoring positive individual events in life rather than attempting to achieve some sort of overall utopia was a good life learning lesson, and again very positive. Understanding how the brain works and where the negative thoughts come from was interesting and constructive.”
