London Therapy for Anxiety

Are you looking for help with anxiety? I provide London therapy for anxiety using hypnotherapy and other tools such as coaching and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Anxiety is a feeling of worry, fear, or unease. It’s a normal emotion that everyone experiences from time to time, but sometimes it can become more intense and persistent, leading to different types of anxiety disorders.

Let’s look more closely at different types of anxiety. Sometimes you just feel worry about something about to happen. Sometimes anxiety can be classified as something more serious. Here are some main categories of anxiety. If you do have anxiety, finding support will help you reduce its impact. Why not consider some London therapy for anxiety sessions.

 

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

 

This is be like having a constant worry going round in your head. People with GAD feel anxious and worried about many things, even if there’s no specific reason. It’s like always expecting something bad to happen. With good therapy you will hopefully feel calmer soon. As well as hypnotherapy, consider psychotherapy. Sometimes medication is an option, so that with a calmer mind you can more easily begin to deal with any factors that have caused your anxiety. London therapy for anxiety sessions would be a great start.

 

Panic Disorder

 

Panic attacks or panicky feelings can be quite overwhelming. Your heart may start racing, you might feel dizzy, and it’s like you can’t catch your breath. This may be like a panic attack. For some people with panic disorder, it can happen without any obvious reason. People can experience intense feelings as the body’s “fight or flight” response kicks in. This can be even when there’s no apparent danger. Hypnotherapy for anxiety is particularly helpful for reducing panicky feelings.

One tricky part of panic disorder is that these attacks can happen unexpectedly, making it challenging for the person because they can’t always predict when it will occur. After experiencing a panic attack, some people become scared of having another one. This fear can impact their daily life as they may avoid certain places or situations.

 

Social Anxiety Disorder

 

Imagine you’re at work and it’s time to give a presentation in front of a group. Your stomach churns, your palms get sweaty, and you feel like everyone is staring at you, judging every word you say. Social anxiety is that same experience in social situations.

It is common for people with social anxiety to be afraid of being judged, embarrassed, or humiliated in social situations. It’s more than just feeling shy. It is an intense fear that can make everyday activities challenging. To cope with this fear, often people might avoid social situations altogether or endure them with great distress. Yes, this can be tough to deal with, but the good news is that London therapy for anxiety sessions can help. I use hypnotherapy and aspects of CBT to help people feel calmer and more confidence.

 

Phobias

 

Some people have extreme fears and anxiety related of specific things. People can experience a phobia of spiders, heights, flying, enclosed spaces such as lifts. These fears can be so intense that they avoid those things at all costs. I frequently help [people conquer phobias. Hypnotherapy for phobias can be effected in just one or two sessions.

 

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

 

OCD can result in intrusive thoughts. For some people a ritual then is created to deal with those thoughts. Often the thoughts are about feeling safe. For example a person may feel a strong urge to check the front door three times before leaving home. This isn’t just a habit. They feel like they must do these things. That if they don’t something bad will happen.

OCD involves intrusive, unwanted thoughts or images. These can really be about anything, for example germs, harm, or a fear of making a mistake. The thoughts are distressing and hard to control.

Often to deal with the anxiety caused by the obsessions, people with OCD feel the need to do certain behaviours or rituals. This could be washing their hands repeatedly, counting in a specific way, or checking things over and over. OCD can significantly impact daily life. It might affect work, relationships, and overall well-being. For example, a student might spend so much time checking and rechecking their assignments, that homework that they miss out on other activities or fear handing the work in for marking.

 

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

 

PTSD unfortunately occurs when someone goes through an extremely stressful or traumatic event. Examples could be a car accident, a natural disaster, or even something like bullying. The person might keep having upsetting memories or nightmares about it.

 

Separation Anxiety Disorder

 

This type of anxiety is not really spoken about for adults but certainly does effect adults. I have helped many people at my London therapy office for separation anxiety. It is a feeling that you can’t cope when too far from home. It can also prompt anxiety in new situations. My London therapy for anxiety sessions are geared for this type of anxiety as well. Hypnotherapy for anxiety si very effective for separation anxiety.

 

London therapy for anxiety and Hypnotherapy

 

London therapy for anxiety and Hypnotherapy

 

Hypnotherapy is highly effective for anxiety. Often people wonder what happens during hypnosis. Let’s explain more about it. During hypnosis you listen to a calming voice guiding you into a deep state of relaxation. Your mind becomes more open to suggestions. These suggestions are aimed at helping you reduce stress. More importantly during my London therapy sessions, I aim to get to root causes of anxiety or panicky feeling.

Contrary to some misconceptions, hypnotherapy does not involve mind control. When in hypnosis, you cannot be forced to do anything against your will. You are fully aware and in control of your actions.

 

London therapy and Life Coaching

 

During London therapy sessions I often use coaching. Coaching is about helping you identify your goals, overcome obstacles, and stay motivated to create positive changes in your life. Life coaching is a goal-oriented approach to personal development. To reduce anxiety I work with people to identify goals and create a plan to achieve those goals.

London therapy life coaching often takes a holistic approach. Together we considering various aspects of life, including career, relationships, health, and personal growth. The goal is to enhance overall well-being.

London therapy life coaching provide positive reinforcement and motivation. We look at self-doubt and limiting beliefs. Coaching can empower you to tap into your potential and take proactive steps towards success.

 

How hypnotherapy helps anxiety reduction

 

Hypnotherapy induces a deep state of relaxation, which can help reduce overall stress levels. When the body and mind are in a relaxed state, it becomes easier to manage anxious feelings. Hypnotherapy allows people to access their subconscious mind more readily. This is where deep-seated beliefs and patterns are stored. By addressing and reprogramming negative thought patterns, hypnotherapy can help shift the mindset from anxious to calm. London therapy hypnotherapy can help people identify specific triggers that lead to anxiety. Once identified, as your therapist, I work on helping you develop coping strategies.

Addressing self-esteem and confidence issues is often a part of hypnotherapy. By promoting positive self-talk and enhancing self-belief, people may develop a more resilient mindset, reducing the impact of anxiety.
