Hypnosis for Anxiety
We all feel anxious at times.
Anxiety is a natural response to those moments when we feel under threat. It’s okay and entirely normal to feel afraid, tearful, angry, or on edge. Our brain is actually working to keep us safe in these moments: flooding us with the stress hormones of adrenaline and cortisol to help us run faster, think quickly, and get out of danger.
Sometimes this means we start to avoid situations we are anxious about to help us feel better able to cope with life in general.
This can feel like a good strategy in the moment, but can mean our experience of life and its richness of possibilities starts to shrink.
Social anxiety means we can become acutely anxious about going out, enjoying connecting with friends and family, contributing in meetings, talking to colleagues, or meeting anyone new. The world can feel a very scary place.
Whilst often the anxiety is a passing experience, changing with the demands on us; for many of us, it can form the back drop of our days. Anxiety can become a constant presence, leaving us feeling persistently on edge, even when we can’t identify a specific cause. We might well become anxious about being anxious. The anxious feelings might arise from seemingly nowhere; and they can often feel far more extreme than the situation warrants. It’s exhausting feeling so on edge and fearful: anxiety can seriously affect our capacity to live a full and meaningful life. This is where hypnosis for anxiety can help.
How Hypnotherapy for anxiety can help
Do reach out if this is your experience currently. Hypnotherapy can help ease anxiety and associated symptoms. A clinical review of hypnosis by the British Medical Journal confirmed hypnosis can reduce anxiety, concurring with an earlier finding of the British Medical Association that hypnotherapy may be a ‘treatment of choice’ in dealing with anxiety and stress-related disorders.
Together, we will work to build your understanding of why anxiety can occur, and what we can do to ease it. Through hypnosis for anxiety I will help you build your capacity to think more positively and reframe perceived threats, so that they start to impact you less forcefully; ultimately aiming to remove them as a ‘trigger’ for your anxiety.
Using proven relaxation and visualisation techniques, I’ll support you to reduce your anxiety about certain situations, helping you start to feel you have agency over how you feel and respond. I will help you to connect to your strengths and build your self-belief and trust in your ability to achieve all that you want to achieve. Hypnosis will reinforce our work gently but powerfully, helping to increase your capacity to feel more relaxed and positive – more confident and in control.
Do get in touch and book a free initial consultation with me when you are ready to explore how hypnotherapy can help you ease anxiety and start to feel more calm, confident and able to live the life you wish for.
