Would you be surprised to learn that believe anxiety is a normal part of everyday life?
Without it we'd not have the ability to take appropriate care in situations where caution is to be advised, or to deal effectively with the constantly changing pressures and dangers of everyday life.
On the other hand, anxiety is not supposed to be constant force that dominates us and disrupts the quality of our lives. That’s precisely what out-of-control anxiety, in its various 'disorder' forms, does for a large percentage of the population - estimated to be in the order of 15-18% at any time in western populations.
The fact is, if anxiety causes your mind to perceive greater danger in a situation than actually exists, your brain will trigger the release of chemicals to prepare you to ‘fight’ that perceived danger or to escape from it. Continued activation of this ‘fight or flight’ response can eventually lead to the body releasing cortisol – the stress hormone – and make your body vulnerable to a wide range of illness.
Clearly, it’s very important to identify anxiety early and to seek help in dealing with it.
And here’s the really good news…
It is possible to deal with anxiety and find peace again.
Let's examine the main anxiety disorders you can manage using various forms of anxiety psychotherapy and in particular from anxiety hypnosis, hypnotherapy for anxiety and psychotherapy for anxiety, all of which services are available when you contact us.
You may have read about phobias and hypnosis, or perhaps heard about various successful outcomes from hypnotherapy and Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD).
While some of these topics and, of course, hypnosis for stress and anxiety are quite well known, not everyone is aware of the more specific approaches that can help people effectively manage various forms of anxiety.
Various combinations of hypnosis, hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and psychotherapy can be very effective in the management of a range of anxiety disorders.
Psychotherapy that has been proven to be effective includes Cognitive Bahavioural Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT).

The disorder involves strong fear experienced when faced with the reality, or sometimes even the prospect, of social interaction. It often occurs because the sufferer has a fear of being negatively judged by other people. It commonly presents as a fear of public speaking (but not all fear of public speaking is explained by social phobia) but some extreme sufferers cannot even stand to use a telephone.

Lists of specific phobias with unusual and scientific sounding names extend to several pages long.
Some of the more common specific phobias include fear of snakes, dogs, flying, speaking in public, spiders, being in open water, heights, lifts or escalators, needles, blood etc.
About 10% of western populations have a specific phobia, often first noticed in adolescent years, yet only a fifth of adult-experienced phobias disappear without professional intervention.
