What is Anxiety?


We all feel anxious, some of the time, it’s only human. And when we’re facing life or death situations we are thankful for our fast, physical reactions, it makes us stronger and it helps us to survive.

But when we produce too much anxiety it can spiral out of control and it can be problematic. Anxiety can come in many guises. You may find that suddenly, for no reason, your heart starts pounding, you’re struggling to breathe, you break out in a sweat or you’re shaking. You feel like you’re going to die. Perhaps you know why it happened... the first time.

Or perhaps your anxiety is less obvious, you’re going about your life in a normal way, but a lot of the time you find yourself worrying, or feeling panicky or nervous. At night it stops you from getting to sleep and it wakes you up in the middle of the night. And then prevents you from going back to sleep. You may well have forgotten what it’s like to feel normal.

Anxiety is created from the following elements; the physical sensations you experience, the emotions you have whilst experiencing them, and the thoughts that go through your mind at the time.

You will be pleased to know that hypnotherapy is extremely effective for anxiety and I can show you how to regain control. It’s important that you understand how anxiety is created, because often, when we understand something, the fear is diminished. I will explain what happens when anxiety takes over and then show you how to manage it.
