What are they and how can hypnotherapy help?
When you are in control of your life, no matter what stressful circumstances or trauma you face, you can cope in a rational and reasonable manner.
Stresses of modern day living can affect the way we think about things, building up with no release valve and the results impact our everyday living. Panic attacks are triggered by our primitive fight/flight response – which is actually designed to protect us so it is important to understand that no actual harm can come to you even though it feels like it can.
Panic disorder is where you have recurring and regular panic attacks, often for no obvious reason. For people with panic disorder, feelings of anxiety, stress and panic occur regularly and at any time. They are episodes of intense fear or apprehension. They occur when your body experiences a rush of intense psychological (mental) and physical symptoms.
You may feel an overwhelming sense of fear, apprehension and anxiety, at other times you may not even be aware of any rise in stress levels and simply suffer the symptoms which can include:
- a sensation that your heart is beating irregularly (palpitations)
- shortness of breath
Hypnotherapy and the Solution Focused techniques used reduce the levels of stress hormones in the brain which help reduce levels of anxiety and thus ‘switch off’ the fight/flight response.
Changing thought patterns to being positive and solution orientated will help you remain relaxed and calm. When you are relaxed and calm, you are in control.
Restore order in your life, you can make your own choices and be in control. It is your quality of life that can be improved quickly and naturally.
