Hypnotherapy for Anxiety Disorders

Looking for Hypnotherapy for Anxiety Disorders?

Negative thoughts create Anxiety which causes a feeling of fear, worry, or unease often leading to irrational or inappropriate behaviours.


Anxiety is not always bad. In the short term, anxiety can help you overcome a challenge or dangerous situation.

So you meet a polar bear in the street. Our anxiety would allow us to stay on red alert and remain vigilant. It would force us to be negative and keep us looking over our shoulder. We would also be obsessing if we feel for one second that bear is following us home. All these things are great for when we meet a polar bear but not so great when we want to live a normal life.

If anxiety builds up then it will begin interfering with your daily life. Physical and psychological symptoms start to manifest.

Physical and psychological symptoms of anxiety

Stomach-ache, muscle tension, headache, rapid breathing, fast heartbeat, sweating, shaking, dizziness, frequent urination, change in appetite, trouble sleeping, diarrhoea and fatigue. Thus making us feel even more on a back foot.


Anxiety can also cause mental or emotional issues in addition to the physical ones above. These can include; depression, panic or nervousness, difficulty concentrating, irrational anger, restlessness, self harming or suicidal thoughts.

The symptoms of anxiety

Anxiety can also cause irrational fears, constantly worrying about the future or experiencing severe anxiety about a traumatic event weeks after it happened.

Perhaps recalling past negative experiences maybe from years ago. Or maybe becoming obsessional over little things, like maybe washing your hands, checking the light switches or cleanliness. Obsessive Compulsion disorder or OCD as it is known is a bi-product of anxiety.

The biggest issue with anxiety is that it does not want you to change. It will carry on trying to protect you from that polar bear. Even when you know, that is not the case and you don’t need protecting. Anything that has kept you from danger, it tricks the mind into thinking this is a good thing and therefore forces you to do the same thing day after day to ensure that survival.
