Help to resolve Anxiety and Panic Attacks at Hypnotherapy Cardiff.
Everyone will experience feelings of anxiety and worry many times throughout their lifetime. For example, you may feel worried or anxious about a job interview, getting the results from a medical test, financial issues or even getting married. Feelings of worry and anxiety are perfectly normal reactions to the daily pressures of life. However, for some people, these feelings of worry or anxiety can become intrusive in their lives, and may begin to affect them on a daily basis.
NHS Direct estimate that approximately 1 in 50 people will suffer with generalised anxiety disorder at some point during their lifetime.
It is a long-term condition that can make you feel anxious about a very wide range of issues, rather than your anxiety or fear relating to one specific issue. You may find that you are anxious most days and may not be able to remember the last time you were able to properly relax.
The NHS identifies the symptoms of anxiety as being many and varied,for example:
|Feeling ‘on edge’||Lethargy||Stomach ache|
|Restlessness||Pins and needles||Headache|
|Sense of dread||Irregular heart beat (palpitations)||Diarrhoea|
|Difficulty concentrating||Muscle aches||Excessive thirst|
|Irritability||Dry mouth||Frequent urination|
|Impatience||Excessive sweating||Painful or missed periods|
|Being easily distracted||Shortness of breath||Difficulty in falling, or staying, asleep|
Some people experience ‘panic attacks’ which can feel very frightening indeed, with people often describing how they thought they were going to die, usually of a heart attack.
There are also many diagnosable conditions for which anxiety is the main symptom. For example, panic disorder, phobias (for more info on phobias, click here), post- traumatic syndrome and generalised anxiety disorder. The content on this page will be equally relevant for someone who has one of these conditions, so please do CONTACT US at Hypnotherapy Cardiff for a chat if you have any questions.
How Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Can Help
If you are suffering with mild anxiety that is related to a specific upcoming event, for example, if you are due to sit an examination or are due to have an operation, then hypnosis, combined with suggestion therapy can help enable you to reduce your worry or anxiety about the event and to feel more in control.
It can often help you to obtain a strong visual image of yourself being calm and self-assured in your upcoming event.
An added bonus is that hypnosis is well documented as being wonderfully relaxing and effective at reducing stress levels. Here at Hypnotherapy Cardiff we have substantial experience of helping people to reduce their worries and anxieties in relation to specific events, and you would probably need just one or two sessions, a week or two before the event in question.
