Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

Posted by Sun on March 25, 2012

Hypnotherapy for anxiety and panic attacks is an extremely powerful tool. We use hypnotherapy with anxiety to change the sub conscious thought processes that lead to anxiety and panic. During the hypnotherapy processes the client reduces the anxiety levels previously experienced in a given situation.

Hypnotherapy for anxiety: how is it treated?

Hypnotherapy for anxiety changes the underlying sub conscious thinking and belief systems that support the anxiety. We access these beliefs by using hypnosis and hypnotherapy for anxiety and we use it to collapse the underlying beliefs . Once the underlying beliefs have been collapsed the anxiety symptoms will be changed permanently.

Panic Disorder is a serious condition that around 1 out of every 5 people might experience.

It usually appears during the teens or early adulthood, and while the exact causes are unclear, there does seem to be a connection with major life transitions that are potentially stressful: graduating from college, getting married, having a first child, and so on. Normally it seams to start with a particular event that scares the sub-conscious. The sub-conscious has one primary task in life and that is to keep you safe.

If something should scare you (or even embarrass you severely) the sub-conscious will seek to avoid the same type (or similar) situations. This is what we call avoidance techniques.

There is also some evidence for a genetic predisposition; if a family member has suffered from panic disorder, you have an increased risk of suffering from it yourself, especially during a time in your life that is particularly stressful. By using hypnotherapy for anxiety we can significantly reduce the panic a client feels.

Panic Attacks: The Hallmark of Panic Disorder

When we use hypnotherapy for anxiety disorders a lot of anxiety that we see in our hypnotherapy clinic is accompanied by panic disorder this is marked by recurrent, spontaneous panic attacks. A panic attack is an intense period of fear or discomfort. During the attack, a person may experience the following symptoms:

  • racing heartbeat
  • difficulty breathing, feeling as though you ‘can’t get enough air’
  • terror that is almost paralysing
  • dizziness, light-headedness or nausea
  • trembling, sweating, shaking
  • choking, chest pains
  • hot flushes, or sudden chills
  • tingling in fingers or toes (‘pins and needles’)
  • fear that you’re going to go crazy or are about to die

To be diagnosed as a panic attack, four or more symptoms should be present. Otherwise, the attack is described as “limited symptom attack.” Those who experience panic attacks usually describe them as occurring “out of the blue.” We use hypnotherapy for anxiety to tackle many of the symptoms that sufferers experience.

You probably recognise this as the classic ‘fight or flight’ response that human beings experience when we are in a situation of danger. But during a panic attack, these symptoms seem to arise from out of nowhere. They occur in seemingly harmless situations–they can even happen while you are asleep.

Hypnotherapy for anxiety: Controlling the Panic

Hypnotherapy for anxiety and panic treatments target the processes that we have learned. As with all learning it is impossible to unlearn (at least without help) this is why we use hypnotherapy for anxiety. For instance can you unlearn how to ride a bike. It is the same for your anxiety and panic once you have learned these processes it is very difficult to unlearn them on your own. This is where hypnotherapy for anxiety comes in it is able to access these sub-conscious processes and help you to unlearn them.
