Hypnotherapy for Anxiety - is it for me?
Feeling gripped by anxiety and like there’s no way out? Tried other therapies but still in that cycle of overthinking and feeling like this is it for life now?
While a mild level of anxiety when facing a stressful situation like an exam or starting a new job is something many will experience, anxiety disorders are completely different.
When suffering from an anxiety disorder, an individual can begin to avoid situations they find are triggers. This constant fear can be incredibly disruptive and prevent them from leading a full and active life.
Hypnotherapy can be an effective treatment in reducing feelings of anxiety, helping to increase confidence and self esteem while reducing feelings of intense fear and worry. It can help you to access the relaxed state of mind needed to overcome the anxious feelings and emotions that often become overwhelming. Hypnotherapy is a great tool to teach you how to regain control and help you to cope better when anxious feelings arise.
Using guided meditation and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness (sometimes called a trance), it is in this naturally occurring state that a person may focus his or her attention, with the help of a trained therapist, on specific thoughts or tasks. Anxiety and relaxation cannot co-exist which makes hypnotherapy for anxiety so helpful.
What does it involve?
Treatment begins with our first consultation, during which I’ll take detailed notes and follow this up with a personalised plan for treatment. The following sessions will include clinical hypnotherapy and teaching you simple techniques to manage your anxiety and get out of the negative anxious thinking cycle. I’ll teach you powerful breathing exercises, help to transform negative thoughts and how to switch off hypervigilence. You will also be given powerful relaxation techniques to practise on a regular basis along with your own CD/MP3 to take away and listen to at home.
I pride myself on great backup support and all sessions are followed up by an email or text.
