Whether it is a permanent high state of alert and sense of dread, random panic attacks or you have that constant feeling in your stomach, anxiety disorders can make your life hell. It might even make you question your own sanity! If you suffer from this, please remember that you are not alone and you can get help.
Anxiety can be experienced at different levels. It can be brought on by a fear of something that happened, or what we think happened and dread happening again. While most people will experience a relatively mild form of anxiety when facing a particularly stressful situation (such as an exam or presentation), anxiety disorders are very different. An anxiety disorder can disrupt the day-to-day life of an individual.
When a person suffers from an anxiety disorder, it can sometimes lead to them avoiding certain situations because they fear it may be a trigger. This can make regular life difficult, causing the individual to miss out on many opportunities. This constant fear can begin to affect their life, preventing them from achieving potential job promotions and developing personal relationships.
Hypnotherapy is becoming a more recognised method for reducing feelings of anxiety. It can help boost confidence and self-belief, while reducing feelings of fear and intense worry. It can help you develop the ability to access the calm state of mind needed to overcome the often-overwhelming emotions you are living with.
By aiming to access your unconscious and using the power of suggestion, it works to promote positive change. These suggestions are tailored to help you learn what triggers your anxiety and why, as well as changing the way you react towards them.
Hypnotherapy can begin to teach you how to regain a sense of control and normality. It can help you understand what triggers your anxiety and how to cope when you start to feel anxious.
We all experience stress at one stage or another. It can be caused by our professional or personal lives, and each individual will cope with it differently. What one person may regard as highly stressful, another person may regard as highly motivational. Problems occur when individuals perceive themselves as unable to cope with the level of stress they face. This can then impact both their mental and physical health.
Stress can help or hinder a person depending on their ability to cope. It can motivate individuals to perform at their optimum level and boost energy. However as a hindrance, it can cause major health problems. It’s caused by the body’s natural reaction to defend itself, so in an emergency stress will force us to exert maximum effort to protect ourselves. Yet when our body is prepared to face an emergency and no emergency happens, all the extra energy has nowhere to go, which can cause problems. Feelings of anger, depression, distrust and rejection can permeate. If we live with these feelings for too long, the consequences for our mental and physical health can be dire. It can ultimately lead to headaches, insomnia and high blood pressure. So it’s no surprise that people are trying to find the best tried and tested ways to effectively relieve and deal with it.
Hypnotherapy can help address your stress and anxiety levels. With the help of a hypnotherapist, you may be able to identify the cause(s) of your stress. Or you may find it’s a past experience, a situation, a physical issue or something to do with a relationship that’s the main cause.
After discovering the root of the problem, you will then agree upon a goal. This goal could include how you would like to feel and what you would like to do in life without stress holding you back. Your hypnotherapist will then work with you to achieve your goals using a variation of different techniques. Each therapist might use different techniques, but they all will work towards the same goal.
