What is Anxiety?

Anxiety – that powerful, persistent, uncontrollable worry about all manner of things – is one of the UK’s most common personal problems, and one in twenty of us will be experiencing it as some time in our lives. The official term for this is Generalised Anxiety Disorder, or G.A.D. for short, and sufferers can also undergo difficulty in concentrating, energy loss, irritability and muscle tension. They will find it very hard to relax.

Anxiety sufferers usually know that they are worrying more than the things they are worrying about probably deserve. But knowing “there isn’t anything to worry about really” doesn’t stop the worry.

The Causes of Anxiety

Anxiety is all about your mind looking for reasons to experience the emotions it’s feeling anyway. Your mind “attaches” the anxiety onto something in your environment (e.g. “have I left the iron on?” “Will I lose my job?” “Am I about to fall seriously ill?”) but the anxiety itself is there anyway and isn’t really about these things. That’s why solving each anxiety-related problem as it arises doesn’t stop you feeling anxious.

Your anxiety has unconscious causes, all linked into the thoughts you are having minute by minute. These causes have their roots in your personality, upbringing, life experience, thoughts and beliefs. A programme of analytical hypnotherapy works gently to undo all of these knots, removing the emotional causes of your anxiety and bringing it to an end once and for all.

Help for Anxious Feelings

Once you’ve freed yourself of your anxiety with hypnotherapy, you’ll still be the same you – in fact, clients report that they’ve never felt more like themselves in their life before. It’s impossible to describe how much better you can feel without anxiety – or how much better you’ll be able to cope with whatever life throws at you now that you are free from all that unnecessary tension and worry.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder – or PTSD for short – is the most misunderstood problem people experience today. As a result, I treat people from all over the UK. PTSD generally comes in the aftermath of a traumatic experience in adulthood. Sufferers will experience anxious, frightening flashbacks, high general anxiety levels, the desire to avoid situations related to the traumatic event, low self-esteem and loss of confidence.

PTSD is sourced in the interaction of the traumatic event with the sufferer’s other life experiences, upbringing, personality, current environment and thinking. A programme of analytical hypnotherapy gently unpicks all of these conscious and unconscious elements, working to release all of the sufferer’s excess emotions and resolving their PTSD completely.
