Anxiety and Stress

Depression, feeling depressed, feeling low, suicidal, negative, manic depression As experienced hypnotherapists with clinics in Wirral, Chester & Liverpool we have helped many clients deal with anxiety and stress related conditions

Anxiety and stress respond amazingly well to hypnotherapy. Hypnosis, Hypno-analysis and Suggestion Therapy are ideal for any kind of emotional or psychological symptom or complaint.

Panic Attacks

When anxiety and panic attacks strike, they can have a huge impact on a persons life and can be extremely upsetting and frightening. A panic attack occurs when a present situation triggers ‘ bottled emotion ‘ in the sub conscious mind. The person suffering the attack will not have any conscious knowledge of these emotions causing the attack, but are acutely aware of the attack. Panic attacks respond very well to Hypno-analysis.

Symptoms of a panic attack are wide ranging and can include:
  • Sudden intense anxiety/worry/fear
  • Heart pounding
  • Sweating or rembling
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea or dizziness
  • Fear of losing control
  • Hot or cold flushes
  • Rapidly builds to a peak, usually ten minutes
  • Sense of impending disaster
  • Chest tightness or pain

Generalised Anxiety

This is a fairly common symptom in society today and affects a great deal of people. Often someone suffering with a general anxiety disorder will often feel trapped in a cycle of worry and fear. Not always suffering a specific symptom, such as a panic attack or social phobia, those who suffer from general anxiety will often experience a daily feeling of dread, inability to cope, inability to shut ones mind off from worry and a loss of interest in life. Mood swings can often be varied and the persons quality of life affected. This can often lead to feelings of depression. Symptoms can include:
  • Frustration
  • Excessive worry
  • Irrational thoughts
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Headaches
  • Depression
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Social Anxiety (see below)
  • Phobias
  • Panic attacks
  • Sexual Problems
  • Emotional Upset

Social Anxiety / Social Phobia

At both my Wirral and Chester Clinics, I have treated many many people for social anxiety and social phobia with complete and permanent success, utilising hypnotherapy.

What is Social Anxiety?
Social Anxiety affects literally thousands of people worldwide. Social phobia is probably one of the most common phobias there is. It is quite simply:

“a fear of any situation where the sufferer is likely to feel on the spot, embarrassed or fearing being judged by others “

Those suffering with social anxiety feel very self conscious around other people and worry about how others ‘ see ‘ them or what they may think about them. Often those suffering with social anxiety, know on a rational level that others are not actually judging them, yet this knowledge does nothing to dispel the anxiety one feels in these situations. The severity of the social anxiety can vary in different situations, and ordinary everyday tasks such as speaking directly on the phone, meeting people in social settings. Public speaking or even maintaining eye contact can be a very painful and
embarrassing process. It is a performance related condition so any situation that involves scrutiny from others, will heighten the anxiety and thus enhance the individuals specific symptom.

Avoidance of these situations becomes paramount to the individual as they become acutely aware of the physical symptoms of their anxiety, fearing that others will notice these symptoms and therefore judge them.

Symptoms of social anxiety include…
  • Blushing
  • Stammering
  • Tongue tied
  • Trembling
  • Sweating
  • Panic attacks
  • Shy bladder in men (inability to urinate in public toilets; Paruresis)
  • Lack of confidence and self esteem
  • Nervousness; Butterflies in stomach
  • Palpitations
  • Sexual inhibitions
  • Fear of public speaking
  • Hot flushes
  • Dizziness and Nausea

Perhaps the most common symptom of social anxiety. Responds extremely successfully to hypnotherapy, alleviating the symptom and providing an enormous relief to the sufferer.

Shy Bladder Syndrome
Shy Bladder Syndrome ( or Paruresis ) is a very common problem that many men will consult me for. It is the inability to urinate in front of other people or in an unfamiliar environment. It can cause intense anxiety and will often make the sufferer feel uncomfortable. It is often a problem that is overlooked in the medical profession despite the amount of men suffering with this condition . It responds very effectively to a few sessions of analytical hypnotherapy and there is absolutely no need to feel embarrassed when consulting me.

M.R Said - "Dear Sam, I can’t thank you enough for the help you have given me.I now feel able to tackle any social situation now without blushing or feeling embarrassed. I feel much more confident and my other ‘ problems’ have also vanished. It’s such a relief to me to know I can just walk in to a crowded room and feel comfortable…..”* See Disclaimer
