After experiencing periods of social, performance or generalized anxiety, many of our clients say they feel lost, desperate and scared.
The physical symptoms of a racing heart, sweaty hands and a sickness in the stomach, together with the psychological symptoms of paranoia and mental ‘floating’, make for an incredibly unpleasant experience.
But when the trigger involves our career, our primary relationships, our social lives or even something as basic as travel, this can make an unpleasant experience so much worse and anxiety can end up controlling us and having a dramatic impact on the quality of our lives.
Over the past decade or so, using a mix of Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) I helped thousands of clients identify and deal with the root cause of their anxiety and at the same time, to cultivate a much greater sense of physical relaxation, mental calmness, self-confidence and self-belief.
In the treatment of social anxiety, performance anxiety or generalised anxiety disorders, it is important to understand that consciously trying to control anxiety through rational thought alone can prove to be extremely difficult.
The reason is that what we focus on we tend to amplify, so trying to think our way out of anxiety can lead to us creating evermore anxiety provoking thoughts, which can only serve to increase the symptoms.
And many of our clients try the complete opposite of this strategy – they talk about avoiding those situations where they expect to experience anxiety the most. Of course, this in of itself, can also exacerbate the problem by making the fear so much worse and preventing us from moving forward in life.
The reason why we’re successful at helping clients to resolve anxiety disorders and panic attacks is because we work across both the conscious and unconscious parts of the mind.
Through Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), we work with a clients unconscious mind, or more specifically their belief system, memory and imagination.
Through the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy we also work at a rational and logical level and the combination of the two can be very powerful indeed.
Add a little wisdom and that most scarce of resources within the therapeutic environment – common sense – and we can help you ensure that all that old unwanted anxiety that has had so much control over you, comfortably becomes a thing of the past.
For most clients we would look to see them between two and four times – appointments last 2 hours with costs ranging from $200 – $120 per session
