Help with anxiety
I specialise in anxiety disorders and have been trained to a very high level in both psychotherapy and hypnotherapy. I am based in Warrington and have helped many locals overcome their anxiety or anxiety disorders.
A majority of my clients come to see me with anxiety problems or depression and through the techniques, interventions and tools I give my clients, I see them overcome their problems.
It is important to understand that therapy isn’t going to fix you overnight! It can take 5 sessions or more to truly conquer these feelings, and in the case of depression, may take up to 10 or more sessions. I am very realistic with my advice here and would always encourage you to do some homework before entering into any therapeutic environment where therapist says they can help you in a session or two!
My work is structured and I work very hard at identifying your needs, and I use what I know ‘works’! I also give you things to do in between sessions to greater enhance your chances of a full recovery.
Anxiety can strike at any time. Sometimes it’s brief and sometimes it lingers. Often, it can seem as if it is always there, relentless and soul-destroying. This can soon become an anxiety disorder.
If you are reading this and understanding what this feels like, then you know that I am not exaggerating in any way. Anxiety, for some people, is persistent and debilitating and can really impact in your way of life.
There are so many forms of anxiety ranging from performance anxiety through to Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Phobias, OCD and Panic attacks and whereas a little bit of anxiety can be seen as perfectly normal, when it becomes intense and prolonged it can really become a burden to the individual.
The symptoms of anxiety can be felt differently from person to person but below is a general list of physical symptoms that are common in high anxiety levels.
- Panicky feelings, fear, and nervousness
- Overpowering, magnified negative thoughts
- Frequent thoughts or memories of distressing experiences
- Bad dreams or nightmares
- Ritualistic actions, such as constant hand washing (as in OCD)
- Insomnia and other sleep disturbances
- Cold and clammy skin
- Choppy breathing
- Tremors / thumping heart
- Dry mouth
- Pins and needles in fingers and toes
- Nausea, sometimes vomiting
- Muscle tightness
- Butterflies in the stomach
As you can see, or even relate to, these symptoms are pretty awful to endure, even for a short period of time, let alone for days, weeks, months or even years!
No one is really sure how anxiety disorders develop, however, my own point of view is that they develop through poor cognitive skills and often, people who magnify their thoughts in a highly negative and disproportionate way are likely to suffer from the negative feelings associated with anxiety. It is important though, for anyone suffering from anxiety disorders, that it is not as a result of physical weakness, nor is it linked to a poor upbringing. It is true that our life experiences shape who we are and our environmental factors can play a role in anxiety and I am also drawing some correlation that it can be genetically influenced. Also, alterations within the brain and chemical imbalances can play a big part.
I also believe that suppressed and repressed emotions from past traumatic events are highly influential in anxiety symptoms and I very often use very deep techniques to get to the route cause of the anxiety and to release the negative emotion attached to the event or events.
Your GP can diagnose anxiety for you and may well prescribe medication to help you deal with the unpleasant symptoms.
Anxiety Disorder Treatments
At the top of the list I am going to put therapy as I believe this is the way to tackle anxiety long term!
- Therapy: Hypnotherapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Certain NLP (Neuro linguistic programming) techniques. Psychotherapy. All these will address the feelings and the distorted thought patterns that you suffer from when going through anxious periods in your life.
- Medication: Doctors often prescribe drugs to combat the symptoms of the anxiety.
- Meditation: To help center yourself and to observe your thoughts and feelings whilst not actually participating with them
- Relaxation & Breathing: Exercises to slow down the breath and to regulate the breathing from being fast and choppy to being slow and rhythmic. This can really help with the symptoms of anxiety.
If you are willing to tackle your anxiety disorder with me and are truly ready to embrace a positive change n your life, then why not give me a call or drop me an email. We can even have a free over the phone chat to answer any of your questions and to help put your mind at rest.
