Hypnotherapy for Anxiety & Depression Northern Ireland

What is Anxiety

Anxiety is a very normal thing to have when we are in stressful situations. It is only when the stressful stimulus has disappeared and the anxiety remains that we may find a problem that we need help with. We all deal with stress in our daily lives, be it from work, money, children, etc. But anxiety is more than that. It is a feeling of fear, panic, doom. And it is when all the stressors have gone, but the feeling of panic stays, that we have a problem.

Symptoms of Anxiety:
  • Panic, fear and unease
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sleep problems
  • Cold, sweaty, numb or tingly hands or feet
  • Heart palpitations

There are a number of different types of anxiety disorders, including but not limited to –

  • Panic disorders

Hypnotherapy will help by getting you to focus more on the positives and less on the negatives, and as a result limiting the amount of anxiety we create and getting us back in control.
