Anxiety disorders are some of the most common mental health issues that people suffer with. It is estimated that 1 in 3 of the general population will suffer from some form of anxiety during their lifetime. Anxiety can take many forms, such as worrying, restless behaviour, sweating, irrational thoughts, difficulty in sleeping, heart palpation’s and problems with concentrating on daily tasks.
Panic attacks, an extreme form of anxiety, which can be very frightening for the individual, can persist for several minutes or hours. Some people seek counselling to help alleviate their problem, or may take medication prescribed by their doctor. The facts are that most anxiety disorders are not cured by ‘talk therapy’ or medication. Hypnotherapy is the most effective treatment for anxiety disorders. In the majority of cases of anxiety, symptoms can be cured within three sessions.
However, some people may need six to twelve sessions to totally eradicate their anxiety. The most important point, however, is that Hypnotherapy works and there are no side effects. It is very important to consult your doctor if you have symptoms of anxiety or depression before beginning a session of Hypnotherapy. With the combined treatments you can help yourself to achieve maximum benefit from both therapies.
