There was a great piece in the Guardian Newspaper this week about treatment for anxiety disorders.
Generalised?Anxiety?Disorder is much more common than you might think.?According to NHS Choices it?affects an astonishing?1 in 20 adults?in the UK. If you are a sufferer you are certainly not alone and there is much that can be done to help you. In my London clinic I use hypnosis and NLP among other techniques (within the framework of Cognitive Hypnotherapy) to successfully treat many sufferers of Anxiety and related conditions.
The?physiological?symptoms of anxiety include?hyper?ventilation (over breathing), tingling in hands and feet, dizziness,?increased?heart rate, a feeling of a tight band across your chest, shaking, difficulty breathing. You may also experience feelings of ?wanting to escape from the situation, things appearing to speed up or slow down, feeling on edge and highly alert to the things around you. Anxious thoughts can include?thinking you may be sick, thinking you might die, thinking you might have a heart attack, worrying that you might lose control, thinking that you might faint.

In my London Hypnotherapy practice I see many clients for anxiety of all kinds. With Cognitive Hypnotherapy I treat the underlying causes of anxiety and teach my?clients?breathing techniques and other specific tools to help overcome the?physiological?symptoms of anxiety.
