Hidden anxiety

Millions of people are affected by anxiety every year. Many live and cope with their anxiety on their own, suffering quietly. Anxiety is something we all experience at some time in our lives, but for most, it is just a short term experience.

Anxiety affects us both physically and psychologically and in its normal form will help us stay alert, flag up any danger and help us with all round performance.

The panic and adrenaline that anxiety produces is what kept our forebears alert and alive and is referred to as the ‘fight or flight’ response. Even though we don’t have the dangers that our ancestors did, adrenaline still helps us today. However, in excess it can, in many cases, work against us, causing us to have panic and fear when there is nothing to worry about.

Enduring a great deal of anxiousness for a long time can have an unhealthy impact on a person’s life.

Panic, fear, lack of sleep, palpitations, dizziness, feeling sick and anxiety attacks are just some of the symptoms connected with anxiety. Just the thought of getting through the day is enough to produce anxiousness, and sufferers do not know how to stop the worry cycle. Chronic anxiety can impact anyone at any time of their life, even though it is reported to be more common in childhood and early adulthood.

Many people with this condition report they feel like they’re ‘going mad’. They think that no one could understand them and truly feel uncomfortable and ashamed. They suffer in silence, hiding their issue from friends, family, children and colleagues. Their confidence in their body and mind is no longer there, so they put up an emotional and behavioural pretence.

Sad to say, it’s common practice for victims to hide this issue, believing there’s just no hope. But this can, in fact, feed the anxiousness and make it much worse.

Discovering and taking care of the root cause of the issue is the most effective way of removing the anxiety. If there is no longer an underlying reason, there will no longer be an effect.

Hypnotherapy techniques are extremely helpful in alleviating anxiety and tackling the underlying difficulties. Hypnotherapy helps the person discover new techniques for thinking, feeling and coping with their problems.

A hypnotherapist will aim to diminish a person’s detrimental views by suggesting favourable feelings to the subconscious. The mind is a very powerful thing, and hypnotherapy uses the resources of our subconscious mind to regain influence over our thoughts.

Paul Howard, an anxiety specialist from The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy, based in Surrey, said, “Anxiety comes in many shapes and sizes and, therefore, it is crucial to understand each client’s triggers and beliefs about their anxiety. Once a good understanding has been reached, it is normally fairly straightforward to adjust and refocus their thoughts onto a more appropriate path.”

The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy is committed to raising awareness to the help that hypnotherapy can bring to sufferers of anxiety issues. They have specialists that cover various issues such as anxiety, weight control, insomnia, psoriasis and smoking. They have been in practice since 2002 and have male and female therapists on staff.
