Everyone experiences feelings of anxiety during their lifetime. However, for people with General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), the feelings of anxiety are much more constant and tend to affect their day-to-day life.
The relationship of physical and mental symptoms can create a vicious cycle that can be triggered by a symptom at any point. With GAD, people often manage to keep things under control and the cycle grumbles on. The effort of keeping things under control is itself very stressful – and so adds fuel to the problem. This is how some people come to feel anxious about their anxiety, making the problem even more intense.
Anxiety is a mixture of physical and mental symptoms. They are part of what psychologists call the ‘fight or flight’ response. Hypnotherapy turns the over-sensitive switch off. The first step to self-help is to understand how GAD works, and this will be clearly explained in Track 2 of this session.Relaxation will help you to manage your anxiety but you must first break the cycle, and that’s how Hypnosis can help you
