Anxiety is an activation of the body at the body and psychological level in response to a threat.
At the body level it can manifest with different symptoms such as tachycardia, choking sensation, muscle stiffness / weakness, agitation / motor blockage (for example, tremors in the extremities), excessive sweating, dizziness, sleeplessness, etc.
On the psychological level, different unpleasant sensations are experienced, more or less intense and diffuse, such as anguish, fear, worry, desire to flee, feelings of loss of control, negative and recurrent thoughts, etc. There are different types of anxiety disorders such as phobias, panic attacks, obsessive disorders, post-traumatic stress disorders, generalised anxiety disorder, etc.
Anxiety is a positive and adaptive response of the organism within certain limits, but when it becomes inadequate or disproportionate it becomes a disabling problem that severely limits people’s lives. The causes of anxiety, phobias and panic attacks can be very varied. Phobias can be developed to the most varied stimuli, from animals and people to inanimate objects such as mirrors or even to certain forms.
It is more frequent that anxiety and phobias have a more gradual development in time and that panic attacks usually start with a traumatic episode. The anxiety response can occur even without the person being aware of what causes it, and only notice the physiological and psychological symptoms that accompany it. Maintaining this high level of alertness in the organism supposes a significant wear that can cause many physical illnesses and psychological disorders.
TREATMENT OF ANXIETY AND PANIC ATTACKS WITH HYPNOSIS
Hypnosis is a very effective tool in the treatment of anxiety disorders, because it allows quickly achieve deep states of calm and well-being that reduce the feeling of anxiety and provide immediate relief. In addition, with hypnosis you can work more directly with emotions, with that unconscious part of your mind, and thus facilitate the modification of those exaggerated reactions of fear, worry, anguish, etc. that are associated either to specific situations or stimuli or to more general or indeterminate contexts, or even non-conscious ones, such as the case of generalised anxiety or some types of panic attacks. The duration of hypnosis treatment for anxiety may vary depending of each person, although important progress can be observed from the first session. Also, the use of self-hypnosis outside the sessions allows the person to develop more quickly a greater self-control and self-confidence, and increase their psychological resistance.
HOW DO WE TREAT ANXIETY AND PANIC ATTACKS WITH HYPNOSIS?
Anxiety disorders are caused by inadequate responses to a stimulus or situation perceived as threatening, and that can be more or less concrete or indeterminate, even not consciously noticed. Hypnosis allows you to directly modify emotional associations by reducing or eliminating anxiety responses or panic attacks more quickly and effectively. Hypnosis is a powerful tool that helps the person increase their sense of control and become stronger and more resilient in the future.
