Smoking / Addiction

Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe.  It is a response that everyone will feel over their lifetime.

For example, you may feel worried & anxious about an exam, having a medical or job interview, or feeling that someone doesn't like you.  During times like these, feeling anxious can be perfectly normal.

Average number of sessions: 8 - 12.

Anxiety affects everyone differently & some find it hard to control their worries & are constantly reminded of things that they fear or find upsetting & this often affects their daily lives.  Anxiety is the main symptom of several conditions, including:

A specific condition, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) is a long-term condition causing anxiety about a wide range of situations and issues, rather than 1 specific focus.  

People with GAD feel anxious most days & struggle to remember the last time they felt relaxed.  One anxious thought may be resolved only to have another replace it.

With Solution Focused Hypnotherapy I will provide support, knowledge & tools to help manage & alleviate anxiety symptoms, being overwhelmed as well as relief for other anxiety related issues like trichotillomania (pulling out hair), bruxism (teeth grinding) etc.

By using a combination of psychotherapy techniques and trance I facilitate the process of recovery.  We talk about the neuroscience & I explain how the brain works, why & how anxiety is created and what we can do about.  My clients find the solutions they need to as we work together & they find their way to being who they want to be; thinking more clearly & rationally
