Anxiety can be described as a general feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe.
Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life. For example, you may feel worried and anxious about sitting an exam or giving a presentation or going for a job interview. In these circumstances, feeling anxious can be perfectly normal.
However, for many people these feelings of anxiety can become overwhelming and are more constant and can often impact their daily life.
Anxiety is the main symptom of several conditions, including panic disorder, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder and social anxiety disorder (social phobia).
Treatment for Anxiety?
There are many different options for anxiety symptoms, the most recommended being psychological based treatments and therapy.
Therapy can help a person to understand what triggers their anxiety. It can also help with making positive lifestyle changes and working through trauma.
Hypnotherapy for anxiety is rapidly becoming more popular, as rather than treating the symptoms of anxiety, hypnotherapy aims to identify and neutralise the triggers.
Is hypnosis good for Anxiety?
Contrary to what you’ve seen in movies, hypnosis involves a lot more than entering into a trancelike state after looking into someone’s eyes.
Hypnosis is natural state that focuses your mind enabling the unconscious mind to become more open and responsive to suggestions.
Research has shown that hypnotherapy can effectively relieve stress, fear, and anxiety. It can also be used to help in coping with the fears, phobias and panic disorders.
How can hypnotherapy be used to treat Anxiety?
There are many approaches to rewiring the anxious brain, but all fundamentally do the same thing, they change the way that the brain stores and processes the information. All behaviours including anxiety are created as a result of prior learning and experience. Hypnosis provides a fast, effective way to access the anxiety patterns in the brain and re-educate with new information that provides a more desirable response to anxiety triggers.
I’d suffered with anxiety for a long 10 years. After attending her group session and learning techniques to cope and a different view of understanding how to manage anxiety I decided that it would be good for me to go and see her on a one to one basis. I had nothing to loose and everything to gain. What an experience I’m so thrilled I went, that session has changed my life. The once issues which had become part of my life have disappeared. I’m able to finally live and enjoy going out. I honestly can’t thank Bev enough and I would highly recommend anyone going to see her. She has changed my life.
