Before we go into detail there is one simple fact you should be aware of if you are suffering from any kind of anxiety. Please watch this one minute tip from me, Harvey Taylor, before going on to explore all the information provided below and on linked pages.
‘Although clinical hypnotherapy is not a NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) approved therapy, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence available to suggest that this type of therapy is very beneficial to people experiencing anxiety. Indeed over the years that Anxiety UK has been running its therapy services, it has consistently had positive feedback from members about hypnotherapy.’
Living with unnecessary anxiety can be exhausting. So much so that if it is not treated some will retreat into depression. Fortunately you can begin to take control of your feelings much more quickly than you might imagine. None of us were born anxious. Anxiety is actually just the body’s way of keeping us safe from real, physical danger. That sudden increase in heart rate, breathing, body temperature and tension are all geared up to helping us run away or stand and fight. This is a useful reaction when we are in real danger, but not when we are at work, meeting someone new, taking a test or giving a presentation. It is just an unfortunate fact that we can sometimes imagine these events as threats.
Somehow our brain tricks our body into acting as though we are under attack. Left unchecked this unnecessary reaction can become habitual and even develop into panic. The good news is that you can learn to relax as easily as you can trick yourself into being anxious and you cannot be anxious and relaxed at the same time. That’s why hypnotherapy is rapidly becoming recognised as a key treatment for anxiety based conditions such as phobias, panic attacks, PTSD and other associated conditions such as IBS and insomnia. We also provide ground breaking treatments such as Havening ADT for clients suffering from trauma related anxieties, following accidents, crimes and disasters, which are sometimes rooted deeply within the past.
