Helping You Change Thoughts, Feelings And Behaviours…
We have a plan… We use hypnotherapy for anxiety to
Remove underlying anxiety
Remove the fear of the fear
Make the changes permanent
Treatment for anxiety should not be about being brave. Using our help and techniques, we would expect to remove their underlying anxiety completely, tackle any situational fear and then make the new behaviours permanent. Thus providing our clients with the freedom that many of them have not experienced for years.
Anxiety doesn’t have to be permanent
We use hypnotherapy for anxiety and panic attacks and it is an extremely powerful tool. We use hypnotherapy with anxiety to change the thought processes that lead to anxiety and panic.
During the hypnotherapy processes, the client reduces the anxiety levels they previously experienced in a specific situation. The video to the right is a real testimonial, portrayed by an actress, to maintain the confidentiality.

When anxious clients first consult with us, we are often surprised at how they have attempted to cope by just using their own resources. They often demonstrate amazing courage and fortitude in an effort to manage their fears, without the help of professional and well-proven techniques such as clinical hypnotherapy for anxiety.
Many different types of Anxiety
There are many different types of anxiety. Although they have similar characteristics, they are all different and, therefore, have to be treated in different ways. They can be split into several distinct groups. This list is not exhaustive, simply a sample of the different types.
Types of Situational Anxiety
This is a very common anxiety and it encompasses a wide range of issues, like:
- Getting stuck in traffic
- Using the motorways
- Going over bridges
- Travelling on trains
- Fear of flying
- Afraid to go on holidays
- Travelling on the tube
This fear tends to affect people on a professional level and includes things like:
- Panicking in meetings
- Getting anxious talking to the boss
- Worried about interviews
- Anxious about exams
- Giving presentations
- Fear of the unexpected question
This fear affects anyone that is under pressure to perform on a particular day
- Public speaking
- Sporting events
- Performing on stage
- Speaking foreign languages
- Driving test nerves
- Playing musical instruments
- Singing in public
This fear is extremely common and is generated when someone believes that they may not make it to the toilet or being observed whilst using the toilet. Typical anxieties are:
- Afraid of using the toilet in public places
- Needing to be near the toilet whilst travelling
- Worried about being stuck anywhere without a toilet
- Avoiding public events because of unknown toilet situation
- Avoiding busy traffic situations
- Not going anywhere unknown
- Not using public transport
This anxiety is all about being judged negatively in various ways and different situations, really a fear of what other people think about them. It can be real or just perceived to be the case.
Hypnotherapy for anxiety – How is it treated?
Hypnotherapy for anxiety changes the underlying subconscious thinking and belief systems that support the anxiety. We access these beliefs by using hypnosis and hypnotherapy for anxiety and we use it to collapse the underlying beliefs. Once the underlying beliefs have been collapsed the anxiety symptoms will be changed permanently.
It usually appears during the teens or early adulthood, and while the exact causes are unclear, there does seem to be a connection with major life transitions that are potentially stressful: graduating from college, getting married, having a first child, and so on. Normally it seems to start with a particular event that scares the subconscious. The subconscious has one primary task in life and that is to keep you safe.
If something should scare you (or even embarrass you severely) the subconscious will seek to avoid the same type (or similar) situations. This is what we call avoidance techniques.
