Hypnotherapy for Anxiety, Leeds

hypnotherapy for anxiety leedsWhy do people look for hypnotherapy for anxiety in Leeds?  Well to start with there are many ways that anxiety can manifest itself and present itself.  When most people think of anxiety they just think about a feeling of nervousness that we have traditionally been told about.  What I have found during my work specialising in using hypnotherapy is that anxiety is the underlying cause to many people’s issues that show up as being physical symptoms such as being overweight, smoking and also drinking too much.

Many clients that have come to see the Leeds hypnotherapist for weight loss have had underlying anxiety issues that have been the root cause of them overeating.

Here are a few of the reasons why clients in Leeds have used hypnotherapy for anxiety issues:

Suffering from panic attacks and don’t want to deal with them anymore
● Fed up of feeling anxious around people
● Being scared of going outside on your own or leaving the house full stop
● Being so scared of spiders that someone has to come and help you get rid of them
● Being terrified of flying
● Unable to speak in front of large groups or even one to one

These are just a small selection of the reasons why people in Leeds use hypnotherapy.  You might find that one of these is familiar to yourself or you might have something different.  Whatever it is you can feel comfortable knowing that I have helped someone with the same anxiety issue or something similar.

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a state where your nervous system has gone into alert as if you are in danger when in reality the danger isn’t there.  It is the system that was used to keep our ancestors safe when they were being attacked by sabre-toothed tigers and other dangers.  Fortunately these days there aren’t any sabre toothed tigers left but because there are less physical outlets for your adrenaline levels when they increase the left over adrenaline sits in your blood stream causing anxiety.  If you were in real danger then your fight, flight or freeze response would help you to deal with that danger in a fraction of the time that it would take to process that information and make a decision on it.  If you think about it, it’s a really good and useful system because without it we might be killed in a real situation where you need to get out of the way or defend yourself without the time to think about it.  Nowadays our ‘danger situations’ don’t present themselves in a way which can use up the adrenaline.  Having to talk in front of a large group may give you the feeling of wanting to run but if you ran around the office people would look at you like you were a loon.  By dealing with the reason that you feel that anxiety using hypnosis you will feel good and confident instead.

Why use hypnotherapy?

Using hypnotherapy  is a really powerful way to allow your mind and body to feel calm, relaxed and comfortable.  Hypnosis is the body’s natural stress relieving mechanism and it is used by our body and mind daily.  You go in and out of hypnosis around 120 times a day and it used to help you go to sleep at night and also to help you wake up in a morning.  You go into hypnosis to help your mind lower the stresses from your day so that you can go to sleep and start subconsciously organising the information with your dreams.  Because your subconscious mind loves hypnosis so much and it helps you to lower your anxiety and stress levels in the most natural and unique way to you using hypnotherapy is probably the best thing you can do for yourself.
