The following list is not exhaustive, but fairly typical of the wide ranging conditions/symptoms/issues that Clients often describe when a feeling of Anxiety is present. Anxiety is the prime driving 'emotion' of this section, from feelings of Stress through to a very low feeling of Depression. Anxiety can be present in all aspects of our lives at different times and with varying degrees of severity as outlined below.
All of the below symptoms/conditions can be suitably addressed by Hypnotherapy or BWRT, ensuring a positive outcome for the Client and allowing them to get their lives back on track.
Fears - A phrase you might hear is that 'Anxiety is Fear, spread thinly!' Fear for a lot of people means that heightened, present feeling of impending 'doom' which often turn out to be 'Mental Monsters' in themselves, but they can be debilitating none the less. Fears, Phobias & Panic Attacks are all quite common and now with therapies like Brain Working Recursive therapy are fairly straight forward to remove from your life, permanently.
Phobias - Now these are truly a level above a 'Fear', these are when you are frightened to the point that you are often physically shaking or physically removing yourself well away from the cause. They often cause totally irrational mental & physical responses to an otherwise normal balanced life. An amusing measure of whether a symptom is Fear or Phobia is to ask yourself if there is a sum of money in mind, for which you would face the Phobia? If you answer 'No' It's a Phobia!
Panic Attack - An entirely different level of Anxiety all together. Here the Brain has decided to suspend all reason. It will instead, upon a 'perceived threat to the organism' i.e. You, trigger an automatic 'Brain Pattern Response' that drops Adrenalin into the blood stream, starts you breathing harder and sets your heart pumping faster. In other words triggered the Fight or Flight response, where the Brain has triggered it's inherent physiological response, as if there was a need to fight or run for your life. You will not die from a Panic Attack, but it is very frightening for those that suffer with them. Within a couple of minutes the Brain regains 'reason' and immediately fires a counter response to return all of your physiological function back to 'normal'.
General Anxiety Disorder (GAD) - This condition is often described when a Client is not able to put their finger on any one aspect that is causing feelings of Anxiety, more that they feel equally anxious about lots of things in their life. This becomes very draining on the client as that Anxiety feeling is more often present most of the time. I'm very pleased to say that at Mindset Clinical Hypnotherapy we have a Therapeutic Protocol specifically design for GAD sufferers.
Depression - There is a very wide spectrum of the use of the word Depression along with the feelings and symptoms of suffers and so often depression is the result of another negative experience or habit. To simplify there are two prime types. Endogenous, where there is no external event or environment based cause for the depressive feelings, but an imbalance of 'brain chemicals' that require medical and medicinal intervention to help overcome the condition. Only a very small percentage of suffers have this type of depression. Then Exdogenous where an outside event or environment is the accepted cause and the low feelings are not always present in your life. Here is where we can assist with dramatic changes in helping Clients identify causes and removing their negatives affect on the Clients future life. An initial Consultation will help us explore this better.
Stress - Of course stress can be positive and negative. In therapy we're typically focused of the negative stress that Clients feel. This can be as a result of Work or Family or to be fair just about any aspects of your life. Learning Self Hypnosis techniques from a qualified and professional Hypnotherapist is the best way of building a natural enjoyable way of maintaining those negative stresses.
Low Self-Esteem/Self-Worth - This condition is more about low feelings of self doubt which in turn creates plenty of Anxiety. The Self-doubt itself is most often caused by how others have treated us, typically in our formative years. At Mindset Clinical hypnotherapy, these feelings can be addressed and their negative influence removed or reduce to an acceptable level.
Blushing - A very socially debilitating physiological condition, again caused when the Brain uses an automatic brain pattern response that is typically at best 'out of date' and at worst 'inappropriate' for a full grown adult. Nowadays this is a very straight forward condition to resolve using BWRT therapy.
Relationships/Family - This is often a difficult area to help Clients resolve since there are other parties rather than just the Client and of course other parties don't always see or perceive life the way the Client does. However at Mindset I find just providing Counselling and Talk therapy can often help a Client get their thoughts and needs in perspective in order to move forward in their lives.
Insomnia -Undoubtedly there can be many contributing factors to insomnia. Environment, lifestyle, habits, anxiety, stress, can all play a role. These need to be identified or eliminated as necessary and life habits modified accordingly to strengthen the condition for natural, restful sleep. Where Stress and or Anxiety are key factors then the source needs to be identified and coping strategies taught. At Mindset we have a range of therapies and coping strategies to help resolve the issue.
