Hypnotherapy for Anxiety Disorders
If you're looking for Hypnotherapy for anxiety in London, you are in the right place. Anxiety disorders can range from mild, slightly uncomfortable feelings in social situations to completely debilitating agoraphobia.
Most of us go through periods of higher anxiety at some point in our lives, particularly during difficult times. Events such as financial challenges, losing a loved one, moving home or experiencing health issues can all contribute to higher anxiety.
When to get help is a personal choice. But if high levels of anxiety go on for prolonged periods, it can increase the risk of symptoms become more sever.
There are many places you can find hypnotherapy for anxiety in London, and it's important to find what works for you. It can be helpful to work with a therapist who understands what you're going through.
As someone who has experienced the crippling effects of anxiety myself, I know all too well how it feels. These symptoms can affect all areas of your life, but I also know that they don't have to be lasting!
While some anxiety is normal and healthy, an anxiety disorder can force us to live in a constant state of fear. This can hold begin to us back from living a life on our own terms. In some cases it can cut us off from our environment and/or communities and loved ones completely.
Anxiety disorders are becoming a worldwide problem, and it's not surprising considering the pressures in this fast paced society.
A recent study by the World Health Organisation (WHO) showed that a staggering "40% of disability worldwide is due to depression and anxiety". There are around 3 million people suffering from an anxiety disorder in the UK.
What Causes Anxiety?
Anxiety can be triggered by many factors. These can include stress, lifestyle, challenging life events or environmental changes, childhood trauma, bereavement, physical illness and more.
The effects of anxiety can vary from person to person. These can include physical symptoms such as sweating, tremors, rapid heartbeat, numbness in the hands or fingers or other areas.
You may also experience dry mouth, feelings of disconnection or dissociation, nausea and butterflies in the stomach and others.
These symptoms often come with negative thinking patterns and obsessive over thinking. This can range from low level to extreme, and can lead to states of panic, which can strike at any time.
How Cognitive Hypnotherapy Can Help
All behaviour has a positive intention and anxiety and panic are the body's way of trying to protect us from a perceived danger.
When an anxiety disorder develops it is because the subconscious has gone into a protection mode. This creates a heightened state of alert. The amygdala, fires a warning into our nervous system, which starts a process of releasing stress hormones into the body.
The aim of this is in helping us to deal with whatever life threatening challenge we need to face. In primitive times, we would usually have dealt with this by either running, fighting or playing dead. When this happens the body goes into survival mode and we experience what has been termed the fight, flight or freeze response.
This is all very well when we are faced with a legitimate, life threatening situation. But when the brain perceives this kind of danger in everyday circumstances, this often causes more of a hinderance than a help.
Freedom is Possible
I struggled with anxiety since childhood and suffering from social phobia into my early 30's. My belief was that this was irreversible, and that it was something that I would have to live with forever.
I am happy to say that I was wrong, and that I am now completely free of those old symptoms and subconscious triggers. And this is how I know it is completely possible for you to do the same. You can read more about my story here.
My journey to recovery came when I reached out for help through NLP, Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy and Mindfulness Meditation. I found Cognitive Hypnotherapy and realised that my calling was to help others, who struggled just like I used to.
Thanks to modern science and our understanding of these issues, and the availability of groundbreaking therapies we have today, your road to freedom needn't be so long.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy combines a range of therapeutic models with hypnosis and other transformational techniques, to produce rapid and long lasting relief.
It allows us to trace these states of anxiety and panic and trace the triggers back to their origins. From there we use techniques to transform the beliefs at the root of them, and let go of unhelpful triggers for good.
