We all have many challenges in life which can cause excessive worry, obsessional thoughts, continual low mood and lack of motivation or a bad temper. In this way we put our bodies through a great deal of stress which can manifest in many different ways, through not only the psychological, but also the physiological symptoms of stress or anxiety.
Anxiety in particular can be a difficult one to pin down as there are so many related symptoms it’s difficult to know where it’s coming from. The symptoms of anxiety are as follows:
Dry mouth, sweaty palms, heart palpitations, increase heart beat, shortness of breath, nausea, feelings of fear or uneasiness, panic attacks, uncontrollable and obsessive thoughts, ritualistic behaviours such as repeated hand washing or checking behaviours, nightmares, sleeping problems, muscle tension, the inability to sit still and calm, loss of concentration, feeling angry or irritable, loss of appetite, social anxiety, lack of confidence and numbness or tingling of the hands or feet amongst many others.
Anxiety, anger and low mood and OCD are all created through the same brain system. Hypnotherapy is a truly effective way in dealing with all these issues and is found to be the most widely used treatment in hypnotherapy. Through advances in neuroscientific research we have an incredibly sound understanding of the workings of the brain, specifically, the system which acts as a modulator between mindfulness and mindlessness behaviour.
During treatment you can expect to learn how the brain works in relation to stress, anxiety, anger, low mood and OCD. Where they arise from, why, and what can be done about it. This explanation is given in a simplistic, auditory and visual way to ensure your understanding. You will learn how to spot your symptoms early and the skills needed to ensure your symptoms are kept to a minimum and do not bother you in the future.
These psychological symptoms can often feel like a heavy, long lasting burden. Hypnotherapy can help you to break free from black and white thinking, reactive behaviour, an inability to relax and many more related symptoms. It will help you to see there is light at the end of the tunnel.
