Hypnotherapy for anxiety is highly effective, and in fact, often is the only method that works. Anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs are a bandaid over the underlying issue. Hypnotherapy for anxiety can help find the underlying issue and remove it at the root cause. After experiencing long periods of social, performance or generalised anxiety, many of our clients say they feel lost, desperate, frustrated and scared.
The physical symptoms of a racing heart, shallow breathing, sweaty hands and a sickness in the stomach, together with the psychological symptoms of paranoia and mental ‘floating’, make for an incredibly unpleasant experience.
In the treatment of social anxiety, performance anxiety or generalised anxiety disorders, it is important to understand that consciously trying to control anxiety through rational thought alone can prove to be extremely difficult.
