Can Hypnotherapy help Anxiety?

If you have ever experienced anxiety you will know just how powerful and gut wrenching it can be. Anxiety is what we experience when our natural 'fight, flight or freeze' response malfunctions. This response is designed to protect us from danger and is what happens when our internal 'fire alarm' is triggered. With anxiety however, this happens even without a threat to our life and can be triggered by anything that your subconscious mind has identified as dangerous. To our logical mind it doesn't make sense that we can be overwhelmed with panic while in an objectively 'safe' situation.However if our instinctive 'unconscious' part of the mind feels it is necessary, it will act accordingly - despite your objections!


Anxiety is your instinctive internal alarm system

Anxiety and fear are caused by the body responding with the ‘fight or flight’ mechanism, which is designed to protect you from danger by releasing hormones such as adrenaline, to enable you to run away from a threat, or to fight to save your life. This is useful when encountering wild animals or in an emergency, but in everyday life, feeling anxious when encountering things that are NOT a threat, such as social situations, a driving test, hospital appointments or public speaking, it can be severely limiting and cause more problems than it solves.

Hypnotherapy can help you to create calm

Hypnotherapy, NLP and EFT tapping deal directly with the causes of anxiety, not just the symptoms and with a skilled therapist, even severe anxiety can be gently healed and the sufferer taught to access their own inner resources.
