A certain amount of anxiety is a part of being human and everybody will have experienced it at least once in their life, for it is easy to become anxious under pressure such as during a public speech or before delivering some bad news.
We can often mistake anxiety for excitement, or sometimes excitement for anxiety, experiencing the sensation of ‘butterflies in the stomach’. However, there are more extreme forms of anxiety which affect an individual’s daily life in an excessive and problematic way.
A person who has an anxiety disorder may experience a constant sensation of being on edge or tense, perhaps worrying that something terrible will happen to them even if their lives are relatively stable.
The symptoms of anxiety are similar to those suffered during a panic attack, but the feeling of apprehension is persistent and can last for a number of hours or even days at a time. When suffering from anxiety you may experience:
- Reduced attention span
- Difficulty breathing
- Loss of appetite
These symptoms may fluctuate daily depending on the mood or emotional well being of the sufferer, but the disorder can nevertheless inhibit their ability to live a happy and normal life. Anxiety may make a person resistant to change as they may fear the unknown; as such they might avoid taking essential risks or changing their routine even if the outcome would be advantageous, such as a promotion at work.
They may be reluctant to pursue deep personal relationships because they find trusting people difficult and challenging, or they may resist meeting their friends at an unfamiliar venue because they find unusual, crowded spaces intimidating and stressful. The symptoms of anxiety can make you feel disorientated and tense when speaking to people, or cause your body to shake even just anticipating an event or situation.
Hypnosis can firstly help sufferers to be stronger in battling the physical symptoms of anxiety and to feel more comfortable and in control generally. The treatment provided at our Harley Street hypnosis clinic can provide long-term relief from the disorder, where you may have previously relied on medication, which can prove only a temporary solution. Hypnotherapy can also help make essential changes to your subconscious mind, altering your perception of certain situations and events, building your confidence and resistance to anxiety-influencing stimuli. After seeing one of our Advanced Hypnosis London hypnotherapists you will be able to continue with your life free from anxiety and the negative effects it has on your life and success.
