Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

Anxiety is a feeling of discomfort – a fear state – triggered by a thought or a situation and it can range from mild to severe.

Everyone will experience anxiety at some point in their lives and this is entirely normal. For example, the anticipation of a job interview or relationship problems. When it becomes difficult to control these thoughts or worries, the anxiety becomes chronic – negatively affecting a person’s daily life.

The brain thinks it’s helping you deal with a threatening situation but it can often be counter-intuitive where anxiety is involved. The brain reminds you of the thing you fear or worry about whilst providing adrenaline and cortisol to help you deal with a threat.

This omnipresent anxiety can affect many areas of a person’s life and their ability to enjoy it. The worries and concerns spread and affect a persons ability to focus, concentrate and sleep. It can affect them physically also with feelings of restlessness, increased heart rate, tension and panic attacks, which are all common symptoms of anxiety.

As well as hypnosis for anxiety disorders there are various treatments you can employ to help you deal with and control your anxiety.

These include:

  • Hypnotherapy including CBT

  • Medication – such as a type of antidepressant called selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs)

  • Exercise and diet

  • Smoking cessation

  • Reducing alcohol and caffeine intake

At Cheshire hypnotherapy we look at all aspects of your life to help you find ways to alter your thought patterns and manage anxiety disorders.
