Anxiety disorders and underlying feelings
Every year around 14% of adult Australians are affected by an anxiety disorder.
In some cases anxiety disorders occur in connection with depression or other mental illnesses. Although feelings of anxiety have serious consequences for people’s lives they are a ‘useful’ signal: they are calling for attention to find a resolution for a conflict.
As a clinical hypnotherapist, I understand symptoms (anxiety, pain, etc. ) as an important cry for help where the organism is striving to solve a problem.
Hypnosis for anxiety, Hypnosis for stress, Hypnosis for depression and how the therapy works
The root cause of these conditions is usually trauma. Anxiety, depression may occur in different forms such as social phobias, panic attacks and generalised anxiety disorder. The reasons for the presence of anxiety disorders vary individually .
For some people, the cause of fear can be found early in childhood events while for others it occurs as a defence mechanisms for subconscious conflicts. For others again anxiety can occur as a reaction to stress and strain.
The initial hypnotherapy appointment involves a pre-talk were the hypnotherapist can get an idea of the type of anxiety disorder and your individual circumstances.
The good news is that depression, anxiety and social phobias can be treated very well with hypnosis therapy by resolving the trauma. Hypnotherapy can help clients to overcome their fears and grow a healthy self-esteem. After the therapy the client can be socially active again, get to know people and make up for missed social experiences. This takes some effort, but it’s worth it.

Panic disorder – Panic attacks
Panic attacks are surprisingly common. Up to 40% of the population will experience a panic attack at some point in their life. Approximately 5% of Australians will experience a panic disorder in their lifetime. It usually happens between the age of 20-30 and often occurs in conjunction with Agoraphobia, the fear of staying in public spaces. The person experiences the environment as dangerous and uncomfortable.
Panic attacks are usually unforeseen attacks of panic that can involve a racing heart, sweating or fear of death. Sufferers have no control over the attacks and the symptoms are experienced as very stressful. In this context the Phobophobia, the fear of the occurrence of anxiety arises.
Often follows social withdrawal to avoid the occurrence of attacks in public. This behaviour has in turn impact on family and partnerships.
If you are suffering from stress or anxiety and are feeling let down by mainstream treatment methods, then hypnosis therapy anxiety may be right for you.
Hypnotherapy for social anxiety
People with social anxiety usually have difficulties dealing with other people. Although that is a priority that needs to be addressed it is mostly about feeling hurt. People with social phobia react with activation of the fear system as soon as they come into contact with other people. They start sweating, flushing or having a fear of blushing and other typical symptoms of anxiety. This reaction can be caused by an experience in the past that has led to the conditioning of negative feelings. Social interactions with humans are the triggering stimulus for fear, therefore the person affected avoids social contacts.
In the life of people with social phobia, the causes are often self-esteem problems and associated fears, e.g. rejection by the parents or at least one parent. Frequent exclusion and humiliation at school or later in the job. In particular, the refusal by the parents is often the foundation for social phobia. People who have been rejected by their parents often react very sensitively to potential further rejections. While emotionally stable children can cope well with insults if they had a healthy family relationship, children who have already experienced rejection can experience trivial moments (laughing at someone, etc.) as reinforcement of rejection fears and self-esteem problems. This is a classical career of a client with social phobia with all sorts of variations possible. However, the core of the problem is usually rejection feeling from the childhood that is building up to social phobia.
