Anxiety Relief
What is anxiety?
The word anxiety come from the Latin word anxious, meaning a condition of agitation and distress.  The term has been in use since the 1500's.  You can better understand the nature of anxiety by looking both at what it is and what it is not.  For example, anxiety can be distinguished from fear in several ways.  When you are afraid, your fear is usually directed toward some concrete, external object or situation.  The event that you fear usually is within the bounds of possibility.  You might fear not meeting a deadline, failing an exam, being unable to pay your bills, or being rejected by someone you want to please.

When you experience anxiety, on the other hand, you often can't specify what it is you're anxious about.  The focus of anxiety is more internal that external.  It seems to be a response to a vague, distant, or even unrecognized danger.  You might be anxious about "something  bad happening."

What are the symptoms?

Anxiety affects you whole being.  It is a physiological, behavioral and psychological reaction all at once.  Hypnosis is one of the most powerful tools in modifying the perception and attitude of the individual.   If the individual is experiencing any of  the following symptoms, hypnosis could be the answer to dealing with them:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Heart palpitations (rapid or irregular heartbeat)
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Sweating
  • Choking
  • Nausea or abdominal distress
  • Numbness
  • Dizziness or unsteadiness
  • Feeling of detachment or being out of touch with yourself
  • Hot flashes or chills
  • Fear of going crazy or out of control
  • Fear of dying

Phobias

EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO  KNOW ABOUT PHOBIAS, BUT YOU WERE AFRAID TO ASK!

Many individuals come to a hypnotherapist for panic, anxiety and phobias.  These are very related problems. There are two types of phobias---Social Phobias and Simple Phobias.

Social Phobias are not shyness. Rather it is the fear of embarrassment or humiliation that may occur when eating, drinking, speaking or engaging in any other activity in front of others - a fear that results in avoidance behavior.

Social Phobias have national health consequences.  Many social phobic individuals turn to alcohol or illegal drugs for temporary relief  from their fears.
Simple Phobias are fears of dogs, snakes, driving, heights, etc.  This type of phobia can greatly effect how one goes about their daily life and may guide them in making decisions.

Both types of phobias can be treated very effectively with hypnosis.  The technique that I have found most effective is systematic desensitization.  A hypnotherapist would treat a phobia by having the person concentrate on recognizing and removing the symptoms.  Under the guidance of the hypnotherapist, the client imagines these situations progressing from the least to the most traumatic.  Clients are also taught simple relaxation techniques that help them to remain calm.
Because hypnotherapists vary in experience, background and education in psychology, only those who are qualified should venture in treating individuals with panic, anxiety, and phobias.
