Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

Anxiety Hypnotherapy in Fife

We all worry from time to time about the world, others or our own lives, but have you ever found yourself worrying so much that you just can't seem to stop? You might feel tense and hot, experience palpitations and shallow breathing. Perhaps you've even started to avoid things that you never gave a second thought to before, or even social situations you once looked forward to?

Freedom from Unnecessary Anxiety and Worry

There are many types of anxiety, ranging from panic attacks to social phobia, excessive worrying to obsessions and compulsions. Severe anxiety serves no purpose in dealing with our everyday problems. It is like a faulty alarm system which goes off in response to an everyday situation or thing which we ‘perceive’ as a catastrophic threat to our physical or psychological well-being, even when there is no real danger – and, as with all learned responses, the more this happens the more it will happen.

People often experience a general state of worry or fear before confronting something challenging or unusual to them such as a test, interview or exam. These feelings are easily justified and considered normal. Anxiety is only considered a problem when symptoms interfere with your ability to sleep or otherwise function during your day to day life. Generally speaking, anxiety occurs when a reaction is out of proportion with what might be normally expected in a situation. Our brains are constantly in the ‘fight or flight’ mode of the primitive brain and everything feels scary or dangerous.

The Symptoms of Anxiety

If you have experienced anxiety, you will understand how easy it is to let them affect the way that you live your life, and you may even be missing out on enjoyable experiences in the fear of bringing on another attack.

However, the important thing to realise is that if you experience anxiety, you have a fear of the feelings of anxiety in your body. Since anxiety is a mental battle, hypnotherapy enables you to switch off from your fears and anxieties. 

While in a state of deep relaxation, you will be able to reframe your perceptions about the situations, events or objects which have been triggering your fears.

How Can Hypnotherapy Help?

Hypnotherapy helps you take back control of your life by:

  • Reducing the anxiety and stress caused by past events and memories
  • Reconnect your mind and body so that you feel more grounded
  • Rewiring your thought patterns from negative to positive to help you move forward in life in the way you want to
  • Release unwanted negative emotions such as resentment, guilt and anger

With simple changes to your thoughts and the way you react to events and circumstances, you can release the old negative habits and beliefs that no longer serve you and replace them with positive new ones, ensuring you achieve your goals as well as helping you find balance, harmony and well-being in your life.

Generally clients will start to feel the benefits of hypnotherapy and NLP within a couple of sessions. Follow up sessions are then used to build up a tool kit of resources and to focus on specific issues.
