How Cognitive Hypnotherapy for anxiety can help you
Anxiety can take over in so many different ways. For some, it might mean feeling overwhelmed by worries and fears, unable to relax in the here and now. For others the symptoms can be physical, including tremors or panic attacks. If you suffer from anxiety, you are not alone. The good news is that Cognitive Hypnotherapy for anxiety has been proven to effectively reduce symptoms, leaving you free to get on with your life.
Anxiety arises when our brain projects into our uncertain future, like a computer trying to scan for threat in order to protect us. The uncomfortable thoughts and feelings that arise when we feel anxious are the imagined results of this scanning process. They alert us that danger could be on the horizon, also known as the ‘flight or fight’ response. Whilst our brain only has our welfare and safety as its primary focus, its sensitivity to the unknown future can simply cause us to create worst case scenarios. In reality we can never know for certain what tomorrow will bring. The only thing that exists, hear and now, is the present moment.
I work with clients to discover the unconscious patterns that create their anxiety and support them in breaking free of their fear of the future. Clients I have worked with for anxiety have often remarked on how much more peaceful, fun and engaged they feel as they become more rooted in the present moment. They feel more optimistic about the future, and so can you. I also help develop their confidence to deal with life’s challenges as they begin to realise how much more resilient they are than they previously thought.
