Your anxiety is a feeling of worry and fear about your past, present or future. This leads to your physical and emotional symptoms.
Most people, at some time, will experience temporary anxiety, that sensation of nervousness or fear which is a perfectly normal reaction to a stressful situation
However, some people find their lives ruled by and damaged by ongoing or high levels of anxiety. This often feels overpowering and may not fit with their life at the moment
If that’s what you’re feeling, you’ve visited the right website.
The best way to explain this is to explore what happens to us during our childhood
We all feel anxious at times during younger years and this can lay down response patterns.
We’ll either continue with these patterns for the rest of our life, or will go back to them after big events or during times of stress
Children are often unable to make sense of the way they feel, or cannot change the situation. They ‘bottle up” emotions, and, in later life those bottled up emotions may be triggered, leading to phobias, panic attacks and anxiety-related problems.
The build up of stress over the years from work, families, relationships, grief etc puts pressure on these bottled up emotions. They need be released in some way, for at least a short time. This release takes the form of anxiety. Which will then create phobias, panic attacks and anxiety-related disorders.
For some people a rise in anxiety to do with their health follows a period of illness, or a traumatic accident or medical emergency. They become oversensitive about their (or others’) health. Every little twinge or cough must be researched online…Google can be an enemy here!
Worry, lack of sleep, nightmares and a feeling of helplessness lead to short tempers, physical symptoms (making us afraid we might have a disease…or something worse).
Not matter what the medical profession says, our fears are not calmed, or only for a short period of time.
Whilst most people know that the anxiety they feel about their health is not justified, there’s always that little voice…”perhaps they missed something and I am ill”
For short-term issues, 2 or 3 sessions will help you navigate the after effects of a difficult time in your life. If the anxiety is long-term and deep seated, a programme of therapy may be more suitable.
All ages from 7 years of age up to our oldest family members can be badly affected by health anxiety. Getting help now, whatever your age or history can help you stay emotionally healthy

Therapy to manage and then remove anxiety depends on your goals, personality and available time. For rapid relief ahead of an event (interview, flight etc), we can use Hypnotherapy; but this may not be a permanent fix. Long-term relief will come from a short programme of either psychotherapy or using the Relaxed Living Programme

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for helping me stop smoking. It was my one month 'anniversary' on friday and since our session I have not looked back. It's funny - sometimes I forget I ever even smoked at all! Thanks again!
I'm very impressed ... I haven't given in! I feel better in myself and for the baby ... I would recommend it to other mothers who smoke.
