Discover how hypnotherapy could help you to control anxiety and panic attacks.
Anxiety & Panic Attacks
When we perceive something to be a problem or threat, our body responds by releasing chemicals such as adrenaline which enable us to react to the situation. This is useful when faced with an actual threat or danger and a certain amount of anxiety is natural; it helps us to stay focused whilst alerting us to things that need attention, but if we experience too much anxiety over a period of time, it can start to have a negative impact on life.
The most effective therapy for you depends on your individual situation Hypnotherapy can often be helpful for addressing anxiety and panic attacks by helping you to relax, increase your confidence and learn new ways of dealing with anxiety inducing situations. Talking therapy or counselling can be helpful where you may have been experiencing anxiety for some time or where there are issues from the past which may be causing problems in the present.
What to expect
Your initial consultation is an opportunity for us to meet and discuss your situation in more detail as well as answering any questions you may have and deciding on the best options for you. We will also do some hypnosis, if appropriate, to introduce you to hypnotherapy and help you prepare for future sessions. Many people find between 4 to 6 hypnotherapy sessions helpful and with talking therapy, sometimes more sessions are required.
Hypnotherapy, talking therapy and NLP are effective forms of therapy, however people respond differently and therefore results may vary from person to person. Full client commitment and participation is required. Listening to CDs / MP3s and carrying out other therapy tasks between sessions is an essential part of the process and this will be fully explained during your initial consultation.
