Hypnotherapy for anxiety in Bristol
We have all experienced a level of anxiety in our lives at some point. We have probably all felt nervous or anxious about a job interview or a driving test. Perhaps you are feeling anxious about your wedding day or the arrival of your baby. You might be worrying about relationship problems or your finances. All of these issues can create anxiety if you think about them in a negative way.
Feeling anxious at times is quite normal but it can often get the better of us and become a constant feature of our daily life. It is the main symptom in panic disorder, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social anxiety disorder, and of course generalised anxiety disorder (GAD).
Some people find it hard to control their worries and anxieties. Anxiety is maintained when we think negatively and the more we think in a negative way, the more our brain encourages us to continue that line of thought. We then become trapped in a cycle of negative thinking. There are a wide variety of negative thinking errors such as catastrophising, black or white thinking and negative mind reading to name but a few. These distortions in our thinking can cause a great deal of anxiety resulting in a manifestation of physical symptoms. When we feel anxious and fearful this can have a massive impact on how we behave in life causing us to withdraw and avoid situations.
Hypnotherapy helps you to break that cycle and gets you focusing on the positive aspects of your life. It allows you more control over your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, enabling you to deal with any situation life has in store for you.

How do we approach anxiety with hypnotherapy?
So you’ve decided that you want to use hypnotherapy to help you reduce anxiety. Let’s talk about how we go about doing that. Notice that I said “we”! That’s because hypnotherapy is a collaborative process and I will be teaching you a variety of techniques so that you can help yourself. We will use relaxation and breathing techniques in conjunction with hypnosis to give you control over the anxiety and learn positive coping strategies, helping to reduce down the physical symptoms of anxiety. It will also help you to focus on the positive aspects of your life and stop those recurring thoughts that can perpetuate anxiety.
There are various degrees of anxiety ranging from mild to severe and not everyone who suffers with anxiety has panic attacks. Your anxiety may be just a temporary thing, such as examination or wedding nerves, which can be helped with hypnotherapy quite quickly. If your anxiety is more persistent then more sessions will be required, which can be discussed during the initial consultation.
