Overcoming Anxiety


Are you suffering with anxiety issues?  They can come in many forms – teeth grinding, restlessness, insomnia, over-thinking, lack of appetite, racing heart. Anxiety can exist like a background part of your life or it can come to the surface in acute panics.   Anxiety results from a natural response of our limbic autonomic fight/flight/freeze response.  When facing a tiger or a dinosaur, the ability to very rapidly freeze or run is incredibly useful; these days, our environment has changed rapidly but our neurobiological evolution has not caught up.  And so we frequently find ourselves facing modern day threats where we simply cannot allow our fight/flight/freeze response to take over.  We internalise our feelings.


How can hypnotherapy help?


When anxiety begins to impact our daily life, it can be an exhausting and bewildering time.  One immediate need is to develop coping mechanisms that you can use on your own, at will, to calm yourself.  You discover techniques that you can employ whenever necessary to distance yourself from your sources of anxiety and to physically and emotionally calm yourself.  As you master this ability, you regain control of your feelings and can sense a progression in your well being.

Sleep improvement is a natural by-product of most types of hypnosis and so this can often provide you with a further sense of welcome relief.

Clinical and analytical hypnotherapy lead you to profound new perspectives and interpretations on your life.  A mind expanded in this way brings about enduring change and can help you to rediscover a zest for life.  We create a safe place where your feelings can be gradually reviewed, taking account of your personal circumstances and sensitivities. As you build a greater sense of inner connection and trust, you find new ways to look after yourself and to bring about profound shifts in your confidence and ability to take back control of your emotions.
