Hypnotherapy for anxiety to reduce intense feelings of worry

Anxiety can gradually build over time, and before you know it, the constant worry has become part of everyday life – but it is possible to take control. Hypnotherapy for anxiety is designed to retrain the brain and input positive coping mechanisms that allow you to think clearly and make lasting lifestyle changes.

When does anxiety become a problem?

As mild anxiety is an everyday part of life, it can be tricky to identify when it’s beginning to have a debilitating impact on life. With this in mind, if you are experiencing any of the following, it’s time to take control:

Your fears are irrational or disproportionate to the situation
You start to avoid situations that may cause you to feel anxious
Your worrying is impacting your personal and/or professional life
You can no longer do the things you enjoy without anxiety
You can no longer control your anxiety and feel distressed

There are many different types of anxiety

Anxiety remains one of the most common mental health conditions and presents itself in many different ways, such as:

General anxiety

Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) is diagnosed when an individual feels continuously anxious without explanation. They may find themselves excessively worrying about everyday issues but are unsure why.

Social anxiety
Health anxiety

Health anxiety arises when an individual constantly worries about their health, often convincing themselves that they are unwell or in pain when they are not. Many sufferers also have an intense fear of death.

Driving anxiety

Driving anxiety can be a result of an accident, traumatic experience or the fear of learning to drive altogether. It can put a huge hurdle in the way of freedom and independence, often limiting opportunities.

How does hypnotherapy for anxiety work?

During hypnotherapy sessions, the brain is neither awake nor asleep, allowing the subconscious part of the mind to be accessed; this is where all thoughts, feelings and experiences are stored. At this deeply relaxed stage, not only is the brain far more receptive to suggestions, but you can also reach the core memories causing the anxiety. These triggers can start to be resolved so that there are no longer intense feelings of worry when faced with particular situations.

We can also focus solely on hypnotherapy for panic attacks

Panic attacks often come hand-in-hand with severe anxiety. When the body feels scared, it releases stress hormones which cause increased heart rate and sweating; for many, this leads to a panic attack.

It is possible to tailor hypnotherapy for panic attacks. During sessions, I will teach you valuable techniques to manage these stressful situations, allowing you to prevent panic attacks from escalating. We will also work toward getting you out of the vicious circle of always worrying about the idea of a potential panic attack.
