Anxiety attacks affect people in various ways. Some say they feel lost, desperate and more frightened than they have ever felt before. Also they experience the physical symptoms of a racing heart, sweaty hands, and tightness of the chest and a feeling of sickness. Combined with the psychological feelings of paranoia and a detached feeling of mentally floating, this is a truly unpleasant feeling all round.
Anxiety is usually triggered by specific situations, whether it be facing up to relationship issues, socialising or involving work, it can affect any part of our lives. This means that people will do what they can to avoid those situations. This is not a solution as it can infringe on their day-to-day functions and ultimately lead to a poorer standard of living than they would like, and in some cases make the anxiety worse if they come into anyone of those situations that cannot be avoided.
Trying to control anxiety consciously can be extremely difficult and can often end up making matters worse. If people focus on their symptoms consciously it can serve to amplify those symptoms, rather like pouring petrol on a fire. This means that by trying to think yourself out of an anxiety attack you can start a vicious circle which will only serve to increase the symptoms.
Using Cognitive Hypnotherapy, NLP and EFT is a very effective way to treat these symptoms. This is because with all three disciplines we are working with the unconscious mind, the back of the mind. This is the part where all memories are stored, our beliefs and all of our learned responses, and that is where the whole problem of anxiety attacks lies somewhere deeply embedded in the back of the mind.
With Advanced Hypnotherapy, NLP and EFT we will work on the unconscious mind to find out what the triggers are to start the anxiety and take out the emotion from the back of the mind. When an alternative state has been achieved you will have various tools available to you so that you can get back in control of your life as you want it. Knowing that those old triggers that set off the anxiety have been dealt with once and for all, you will be able to enjoy life to the full without being fearful and you will feel more confident.
