Anxiety, depression, anger

"Present fears are less than horrible imaginings.”  

 William Shakespeare  

We all know that life can become really difficult and unenjoyable when anxiety, stress and worry become a regular, habitual response to the stresses and strains of modern day life. 

Being anxious or stressed can feel exhausting and bring out  ways of thinking and behaving that aren't the real us. There are very natural reasons for how and why these can manifest in us which I can explain.

Similarly when we start to feel low on a regular or prolonged basis this can create a vicious cycle where we can become consumed with our internal turmoil. We can become less active, less interactive and miss out on experiencing and enjoying life.

Depression and anxiety are part of our instinctive survival mechanisms that allow us to prepare for danger or close off from a world that feels too hard to bear. These are helpful and even life-saving in rare situations but can be very unhelpful in relation to much of our modern lives. 

Hypnotherapists alongside many other forms of therapy see anxiety and depression as two sides of the same coin and many people who experience one, also experience the other.

Do you suffer from being anxious more than you would like? 

Do you feel at the end of your nerves? 

Does it feel like one more demand, however small, is just  too much to handle? 

Do you fly off the handle and wish you hadn't?

Do you find it difficult to get to sleep or stay asleep?

Do you find it difficult to get out of bed, to get going?

Do you find it hard to feel enthusiastic or joyful but know its there somewhere inside?

Hypnotherapy has a long track record of helping people with these issues and during the sessions we guide you to:

  • understand how anxiety, depression and anger can be triggered and what we can do about it
  • experience deep relaxation using guided relaxation
  • understand the importance and benefits of directing our minds onto positive and calming activities and thoughts
  • decide on an initial small step you will take (perhaps even in noticing the triggers and being able to choose a different response)
  • positive activities and actions to do in between the sessions to reinforce new mental pathways
  • tap into the vast problem solving capability and resourcefulness of your mind using hypnosis (or trance)

Anxiety, depression and anger can have huge effects on our body, our mind, our lives and the lives of people around us.

Yet, there is much we can do to help you understand it, to help you stop battling it, to feel a release from it, to start feeling joy again.
