Feeling anxious and stressed out?

A feeling of anxiety every day without knowing what it relates to is called “free floating anxiety”.  You might find yourself feeling irritable, frustrated, less patience, increased consumption of alcohol, cigarettes and a change of eating habits.

Anxiety and stress can manifest itself in many ways: nervousness; panic attacks; insomnia, overly worrying about something that may never happen, etc. It can have a crippling effect by bringing on range of symptoms such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), skin complaints or negative patterns such as over-eating, drinking, smoking etc.  If gone unaddressed stress and anxiety can change lives for the worsed.

The list of how anxiety can present itself is particularly long.

Some common symptoms:

  • Poor sleeping pattern
  • Butterflies in stomach
  • Dry mouth
  • Increased heart rate
  • Excessive sweating
  • Tightness in chest
  • Migraine or tension headaches
  • Gastric ulcers

Whatever the cause of stress and anxiety the treatment is tailored to the individual.

Is anxiety sneaking up on you?

The brain is an extraordinary and complex thing.  It has its own way of ringing alarm bells when it’s had enough of dealing with stress or anxiety and can suddenly change its pattern of reaction.  Previously we might have been able to deal with whatever life threw at us, but all of a sudden it all becomes too much.

The hypnotherapy allows guided relaxation showing a preferred future and because the subconscious part of the brain, the part that’s in charge of our reactions, doesn’t understand the difference between imagination and reality, the guided relaxation starts to bring calm and control back into our lives.

The number of people suffering stress and anxiety these days is surprising.  However people rarely talk about the negative symptoms they’re suffering.  Once you do start talking about it, you might be surprised how many other people have suffered the same!

Panic Attacks

At least one person in ten experiences panic attacks which are often triggered by a stressful or anxious event.  A panic attack happens when you experience a sudden onset of intense physical and psychological symptoms.  They often strike out of the blue, without any warning. There may be no clear reason for the attack. They may even occur when you're relaxed or asleep.

A panic attack may be a one-time occurrence, but many people experience repeat episodes. Recurrent panic attacks are often triggered by a specific situation, such as getting in a lift, fear of germs or speaking in public especially if that situation has caused a panic attack before. Usually, the panic-inducing situation is one in which you feel endangered and unable to escape.  You might experience an overwhelming sense of fear, dread, anxiety or apprehension causing physical symptoms in the body.  

What is a panic attack?

Shortness of breath & hyperventilation

Trembling or shaking

Rapid heart rate

Diffciulty swallowing

Sweating

Heart palpitations

Feeling detached from your surroundings

Feeling dizzy

Choking feeling

Nausea or upset stomach

Hot & cold flushes

Chest pain

Fear of dying or losing control

You may experience one or more panic attacks, yet be otherwise perfectly happy and healthy. Or your panic attacks may occur as part of another disorder, such as panic disorder, depression or social phobias.   While they are frightening it’s unlikely they will cause physical harm, but the self-perpetuating thought of having one stops us from doing the things we want to do or need to do causing more stress and increasing the potential of having a panic attack. 

The good news is that Solution Focused Hypnotherapy has been shown to be a very effective treatment for panic attacks reducing the frequency in a short period of time or sustained treatment will often result in them disappearing altogether.  Hypnotherapy reduces underlying levels of anxiety giving you greater control and reducing the emotional arousal.  Hypnotherapy works with the subconscious brain templates and makes suggestions in a beneficial and positive way to make positive changes happen in the subconscious.

You will learn how to prevent negative stress and anxiety as well as how to identify increased levels of stress, and how to deal with the situation and how to prevent it reaching debilitating panic attack levels in a positive and responsible way.  Understanding “why” you are suffering with these conditions will help prevent a relapse once the treatment is complete.

Whatever the cause of stress, anxiety or panic attacks the treatment is tailored to the individual
