Hypnotherapy for Anxiety in London

We know how miserable it is to suffer from anxiety, that state of always feeling on edge or panicked, unable to relax or rationalise how you feel. It’s debilitating and destabilising – but the good news is our hypnotherapy for anxiety sessions can help.
Anxiety is the manifestation of our subconscious mind going into protection mode. Anxiety is the physical alarm bell our automatic nervous system uses to warn us about and prepare us for dangerous situations. Put another way, anxiety is the body’s way of keeping us safe.

When something – a situation or a thought – triggers our nervous system, it immediately kickstarts a physical ‘fight or flight’ reaction which prompts us to decide either to face the danger or to flee from it.

Anxiety symptoms are varied. At their mildest, we might experience butterflies in the stomach. But more severe symptoms can include shaking, a racing heart, hot flushes, chest pains, breathlessness, dizziness, pins and needles and a sensation of feeling ‘unreal’ in the company of others.

Though often very intense, these symptoms are completely harmless and are part of our genetic instinct for self-preservation. The power of hypnotherapy lies in allowing you to identify and then deal with the triggers that cause these responses in the first place.
Anxiety can also have its root causes in situations which are challenging socially, such as parties or functions where we are expected to interact with strangers or perform in front of others. And so we avoid confrontation with our anxiety by crying off at the last moment or making excuses to leave early.

Often, it is the situations to which we are committed and have no real control which cause us the most difficulty with anxiety – public speaking, leading team meetings, face-to-face sales or a big pitch to a client are all typical examples of situations in which we feel trapped and unable to take control.

Personal finances are another prevalent trigger for anxiety. When we’re experiencing financial hardship – whether it’s of our own making or not – those feelings of helplessness morph into a fear of facing up to the issues at play. And so in a vain attempt to alleviate the symptoms – or to avoid having to think about it at all – we avoid looking at our bank balance or opening bank statements and invent stories to tell ourselves about a new job or a pay rise or a sale on eBay that will make everything all right again. Unfortunately, anxiety loves avoidance.
The tricks we teach ourselves to avoid whatever is causing us to be anxious are simply sticking plasters for the soul – and eventually, there comes a time when they’re not enough to stop us from feeling overwhelmed by the emotions that lie deeper below the surface of our psyche. That’s the point at which self-help probably ceases to become an option and hypnotherapy becomes a consideration.

Severe anxiety issues occur when we become fearful of the anxiety itself. This can trigger a vicious circle where the fear of anxiety leads to more intense physical symptoms, creating more fear and progressively more acute bodily reactions. In the process, the brain comes to accept this elevated state of anxiety as normal and as a result, the sufferer experiences regular or constantly high levels of anxiety.

It’s like overwinding a wristwatch. The tighter we wind it, the more likely it is that a spring will snap. That constant ratcheting up of your anxiety is like the constant winding of a watch – eventually, the impact of that on not only our emotional well-being but also on our physical health can become quite serious. The secret is to find help in dealing with it before that happens.

Hypnotherapy works because it puts an end to that instinctive emotional overwinding that we go through when we’re anxious.
We have become less good at working to identify what is causing us to be anxious than finding ways of dealing with that problem at its root.
Often, anxiety can be the physical and emotional manifestation of trauma earlier in life – something which we may not even consciously recognise as influencing our emotional well-being. In some cases, this trauma has had such a significant impact on us that our clever subconscious has buried it out of sight.
