We all experience different levels of anxiety some times in our lives. It’s a tool that keeps us alert in order to survive. But there are points when it becomes too much. This is when hypnotherapy for anxiety can help.
It’s quite normal for people to experience ‘safe levels’ of stress and anxiety from time to time, for example when sitting exams or starting a new job.
However, when people worry or feel stressed a lot of the time, these chronic stress levels can result in a state of increased anxiety and cause panic attacks.
When this becomes too much for us to cope with, the quality of our lives can be significantly compromised and we stop being happy. We begin to feel that we are existing rather than living life to the full.
The impact of long-term anxiety on mental health and wellbeing
Prolonged anxiety can lead to other symptoms such as sleep disturbance, panic attacks, a feeling of losing control or being ‘detached’, OCD, phobia, social anxiety disorder, and IBS.
The good news is that you can have hypnotherapy for anxiety and stress.
How hypnotherapy works for anxiety
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy offers a gentle approach to help solve the problem. Step by step, it will refocus your mind enabling you to move away from the negative aspects of your life to the positive ones.
During the sessions we will use hypnosis to gradually stop the subconscious negative patterns that have been created and start to give you back control of your thoughts, reducing stress and anxiety and restoring peace, calmness and confidence.
