Hypnotherapy is a highly effective way of treating and managing anxiety and stress (including panic disorder) and is in greater demand during the current Covid-19 situation. The health benefits of reduced stress and anxiety through regular relaxation using hypnosis are immeasurable and just one session can make a big difference.
Anxiety can have a variety of causes and can manifest itself in many ways, ranging from a general feeling of unease to full-on panic attacks, resulting in dizziness, shortness of breath and an increased heart rate or palpitations. The long-term effects of anxiety, such as disturbed sleep patterns, can cause increased blood pressure and depression. Stress can lead to feelings of being overwhelmed and an inability to cope. As well as affecting physical health, this can have a negative effect on both personal relationships and productivity in professional life.
Apart from the basic fear regarding coronavirus and anxiety about an unknown future, the current situation is creating new triggers for anxiety (for example, mask-wearing can lead to perceived breathing difficulties). Other concerns relate to such things as just going out of the house for something as routine as shopping. However, simple techniques like self-hypnosis can help with these issues.
Hypnotherapy can reduce and even eliminate anxiety, nullifying the triggers, and help improve responses to situations that may have created anxiety in the past. This leads to greater ability to cope with and respond well to stressful situations, and enhanced feelings of control. Learning how to relax properly with simple techniques will have major health benefits and lead to improved well-being.
Treatments for stress or anxiety usually require one session. Additional sessions may be considered if the anxiety is particularly severe or if there are past events to work through.
