Many people feel anxious at times, especially when faced with stressful events and changes to our lives, it’s a natural human response when we perceive that we are in danger. However, if these continuous feelings of anxiety impact your ability to carry out life as normal, you could have an anxiety disorder.
In the UK, a little over 1 in 10 of us will be living with an anxiety disorder at any one time – That’s over 8 million people. But everyone’s experience of anxiety disorders is different. Not everyone who has an anxiety disorder will experience the same symptoms.
Anxiety might be becoming a problem if:
Hypnotherapy has been a proven way to treat anxiety and stress. The treatment includes discussing the client to learn what the triggers are and to reduce the symptoms. After a session, you may feel more confident or relaxed in situations that have previously been challenging.
Hypnosis also allows the client to experience often quite deep levels of relaxation and so helps to reduce the initial levels of stress and anxiety too.
