Hypnotherapy for anxiety

Everyone experiences anxiety at times, for example, attending a job interview or waiting for the results of an exam. In normal circumstances, these fears are proportional to the actual situation and are short-lived.

Anxiety disorders

Many anxiety disorders are limited to one aspect of a person’s life, like their health or relationship. Some people may have an appropriate concern over such things, those with an anxiety disorder magnify the likelihood of a negative outcome and its potential consequences very unrealistically.


For some people, however, anxiety can be almost constant, they worry and feel fearful about a range of matters. Their daily lives are affected in countless ways and they may even forget what it felt like to live without the feeling that something bad is going to happen. Under the right trigger conditions, this can lead to panic attacks.

Always expecting the worst possible outcome and negative thinking may become a way of life and can have a huge impact on your well-being, self-esteem and mental health.

Anxiety conditions are fueled by distorted thinking, mainly focusing on what’s the worst thing that could possibly happen, dwelling on the negative and exaggerating risk. In brief, the sufferer usually confuses a probability with a possibility.

 

Social Anxiety

Social anxiety is unfortunately very common. It is a very common form of anxiety and can be mild, moderate or severe and is triggered by certain social situations that the patient finds uncomfortable or stressful.

Social anxiety symptoms

In mild cases, a person may simply dislike public speaking or being asked to give a presentation at a staff meeting. They might not want to be the centre of attention at a party and may find it stressful and possibly even leading to panic attacks. ​

In moderate cases, this may develop further to declining invitations to parties and avoiding crowded places such as bars and clubs.

In severe cases, someone may avoid public places such as supermarkets and wherever there is social interaction. This can result in the sufferer becoming very reclusive and isolated, which can lead to depression and other damaging mental health conditions. 

 

HOW IS ANXIETY TREATED?

If you feel that any of the above descriptions fits your own experiences, the good news is that help is at hand.
