Is Anxiety getting in the way of carrying out normal daily living?
Hypnotherapy is proven to be very successful in reducing the unpleasant symptoms of anxiety.
Having had personal experience of acute and chronic anxiety as a youngster, I know only too well how it can ransack daily living, magnifying situations and experiences that may have no real foundation but creating dread and fear.
Carrying out something as simple as going to the shop or getting on a bus can cause very unpleasant emotional and physical reactions which can lead to avoidance in certain situations. Most of us experience low level anxiety at some point, particularly when facing new experiences, e.g. attending a job interview or taking a driving test and this is completely normal but for an anxiety sufferer every day can create a challenge, at times affecting personal relationships and affecting family life.
I approached Wendy with the hope of feeling more relaxed after suffering with depression and anxiety on and off for a number of years. Hypnotherapy has massively exceeded my expectations and improved my life. After around seven sessions I am feeling completely in control of my anxiety and depression and am able to relax and enjoy life again. My mental outlook of myself has changed and I am much happier and confident. With Wendy’s help I’ve been able to understand the root of my difficulties and build the resilience needed to look after my emotional wellbeing going forward. Thank you Wendy and I would strongly recommend the investment to anyone considering hypnotherapy with WendySian, Gloucestershire
Anxiety can be caused by overthinking, turning up the volume on the internal mind chatter, creating a head full of worrying scenarios that might have been brought on by a fear of something that has happened, or our interpretation of what happened or might happen in the future, that usually won’t happen anyway but the emotional and physical changes only serve to make matters worse . Common symptoms of anxiety include:
- dizziness and feeling light headed
- lack of focus
- feeling breathless
- low mood
- loss of sexual interest
- loss of appetite
- feeling tense
- shortness of breath
- a tight feeling in the chest
- difficulty sleeping
- poor concentration
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Hypnotherapy is a very helpful approach that allows the anxiety sufferer to understand how the mind works in relation to anxiety and the subsequent solutions focussed techniques that are used to facilitate positive and lasting change.
