Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

Anxiety can be described as being unable to relax, feeling on edge or panicky, sometimes without even knowing why you feel like that. 

Many feelings of anxiety are normal. We all have them sometimes and they can be helpful to a degree. Sometimes you may find those feelings of anxiety are more persistent and affect your daily life, which can be debilitating.

A bit like an overwound clock which just stops.

Anxiety is our subconscious mind’s way of warning us about danger of some sort, of keeping us safe. It triggers the nervous system into fight or flight mode so we have to decide whether to face the danger or run away from it.

There are all sorts of reasons for anxiety. Maybe you’re simply worried about something like an exam or test. Maybe you’re feeling anxious at work, or maybe you’ve lost your job, or you’re worried about your finances. Some people can even become anxious about their anxiety.

Right now, lots of people are anxious about the pandemic, whether they’ll become ill and the effect it’ll have on their lives. And lockdown can make that anxiety feel even worse with relationship issues, frustration around trying to work from home, and loneliness or feelings of isolation.

Whatever the cause of your anxiety, hypnotherapy for anxiety can help by identifying the triggers causing the unpleasant symptoms, changing negative and unhealthy beliefs driving your thoughts and anxiety to positive, healthy and helpful beliefs and thoughts, resetting your anxiety to a healthy level.
