TAKING THE PRESSURE OFF...
Anxiety is part of normal human experience. We all know what it feels like to be anxious and it can help us to take more care than we otherwise might.
But for some people, moments of anxiety aren't rare - instead anxiety constantly disrupts the quality and enjoyment of their lives.
If you have unexpected or unpredictable periods of extreme anxiety, with symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, trembling, sweating, nausea and dizziness, maybe vision disturbance and altered speech patterns, or a swallowing difficulty with a choking feeling, then you are experiencing panic attacks.
Many people worry about future episodes and make major changes in their behaviour, trying avoid a repetition. Most are unaware of what triggers their anxiety and suffering.
Unpredictable feelings of terror that strike suddenly and repeatedly without warning? Many sufferers develop intense anxiety between episodes, worrying about where and when the next one will strike. They may last anything from a couple of minutes, to ten minutes or an hour or more. In between times, there can be a persistent, lingering worry that another attack could come at any minute, or that other people may avoid or judge them.
Hypnotherapy offers relief, using a number of different techniques and hypnotic approaches. This means you can relax and stop trying to fix yourself with conscious effort.
Take the pressure off - that's the main message.
