Hypnotherapy for Panic Attacks
Hypnosis can be a very effective tool for the treatment of panic attacks and other physical manifestations of stress and anxiety issues.
The physical symptoms of the panic attacks can often lead to fear of loss of control or even death, as the effects can be similar to heart attack or strokes. The quick, shallow breathing causes hyperventilation which leads to respiratory alkalosis, which may cause a number of physical symptoms: dizziness, tingling in the lips, hands or feet, headache, weakness, fainting and seizures.
Often panic attacks become so ingrained in the subconscious that they seemingly happen without warning and without the ability to be controlled. Hypnotherapy allows this process to be effectively slowed down and studied from a detached prospective, giving back the control to the person and allowing new neurological pathways to be created.
Understanding all aspects of the condition, from it’s inception to it’s current infliction, enables you to make changes to the often illogical and irrational thoughts and behaviours that have become attached to certain triggers, which result in these recurrent panic attacks.
Hypnotherapy can be a fast and effective treatment, often taking only 4 sessions to make real, long term changes to those old, unwanted habits.
