Would you know if you had an anxiety disorder? It is estimated that approximately 18% of the population is suffering from some form of anxiety disorder, that is a staggering amount! What is even worse than that, is that about two-thirds of all the people who have an anxiety disorder, never get treated for it. This statistic is a sad indictment of the state of the modern world. We live in an age where people, generally speaking, have never had it so good. We have far more going for us that our forefathers ever did. We have every modern convenience to make life better, better healthcare, better education, better wages, more security, etc. yet we are, seemingly more fearful for the prospects for our future; why is this?
I am beginning to believe, that, the easier life becomes, the more complex and difficult it is to live peacefully! I have discovered peace comes, not from having more but rather from needing less. How much do you actually need?
If you feel trapped in the ever-increasing cycle of wanting more and more, in order to satisfy the angst from within; then maybe it's time to take stock of your life?

Sometimes those who have an anxiety problem are the last ones to know about it. They often feel that what they are experiencing is the result of other people, e.g. if he'd stop doing that or she'd stop doing this, then I'd be fine! Usually, nothing could be further from the truth, of course, it is possible that others can make life more challenging than it needs to be but that should not result in us developing an anxiety disorder.
The secret to a happy and balanced life comes from our ability to manage the ups and downs of each day as it unfolds. Of course, some anxiety is normal and to be expected, especially because our emotional system's primary purpose is to help us survive. It does this by initiating the fight or flight response and once the danger (real or false) has passed, things usually return to normal. However, when our survival system malfunctions, we lose our ability to discern what is real and what is not. Essentially it feels like there is no genuine perception of normal. Anxiety runs amok and an ever increasing descent into panic and despair usually follows. It is quite normal to then go into a state of hyper-arousal (a highly sensitive state) and an emotional meltdown can often follow. The time to take action is now, in the present! Managing your anxiety with hypnotherapy is a tested, proven and effective way to help you regain control of your life!
To see if you are suffering from an anxiety issue, it's time to ask yourself some very important questions, is anxiety:
Affecting the quality of your life?
Preventing you from making friends?
Damaging your relationships?
Limiting or stalling career progression?
Preventing you from eating in public?
Trapping you in your own home?
Making it hard to trust others?
If you answered yes to any or all questions, then it's time to take action; don't let Anxiety take the life you deserve and want!
It is important to know that anxiety is not always the bad guy. In fact, some of it is actually a good thing, it helps us to instinctively evaluate situations that may prove to be harmful or dangerous. But when anxiety is excessive or rampant it begins to affect the way we live our lives, probably making it harder to feel the joys of life. Chronic anxiety is a disorder of our brain and mental processes it assiduously and progressively begins to limit the quality and effectiveness of our life; instead of being protective, it becomes destructive! It prevents us from doing things that may be beneficial to us or just makes living and enjoying life difficult; if not seemingly impossible! For example, social anxiety may prevent us from meeting new friends, or the partner of our dreams. It can impair our career advancement, it can make us lonely and often sad people! General anxiety makes us fearful of most situations; even when we logically know it is not rational to feel this way. Panic disorder can literally make us feel like we are having a heart attack; that's aside from the overwhelming feeling of doom that abounds.
But it really doesn't have to be this way because we can easily discover new effective ways to understand our anxiety and then conquer it. Through cognitive restructuring we begin to self-determine our emotional states, life then becomes more meaningful. But what do I mean, determine our emotional states? The brain has several structures or regions involved in the fear or defensive mechanisms, these essentially aim to keep us safe and do so without our conscious intervention, they essentially dictate how we experience life. Amongst these brain regions are two small structures (one in each hemisphere) called the amygdala, when you experience anxiety or fear, you can guarantee the amygdalae are hard at work. However, contrary to popular belief, e.g. "I am the way I am", we can actually learn to react differently to anxiety, we can learn its signals, become aware of our thought processes and eventually take alternative steps, create better outcomes and live a better life; we really can!
How, you may ask? Well, there are many ways and mine, I believe, is one of better ones. The essence of it is the way in which it observes, understands and re-consolidates the way emotional memories express themselves. And, having been a former sufferer of debilitating anxiety I have developed a method that is easy to understand and implement. Now I am not specifically saying it is always easy to do, but it can be, what I am saying, is, that if you follow the programme, do the exercises (not physical, although I would recommend some form of physical activity) it will bring results; without a doubt. Added to this, is the work we will do in hypnosis. Hypnosis will allow you to make progress at the subconscious level; the place where your negative and anxiety-provoking thoughts come from! So why not give it a try?
