What is Anxiety?

Everybody experiences stress and worries from time to time but persistent high levels of anxiety affects millions of people. Anxiety is a natural response to stress, but it becomes an issue when anxiety is a daily response to ordinary events. It can become hard to control worrying thoughts and anxious feelings can then become chronic.

History of Anxiety

Anxiety is an emotion that arises as a result of an important physiological response that helps to protect us by triggering an appropriate response to danger.¬†¬†Hormones and neurotransmitters are secreted in service of the ‚Äėfight-flight-freeze‚Äô defence mechanism that enables us ‚Äď and other organisms – to be alert and respond to threats. We may become aggressive, or avoid it and run, or stay rooted to the spot (an old trick to fool predators on the lookout for movement).¬†¬†Often accompanied by heightened arousal, muscular tension, restlessness, fatigue, breathlessness, nausea, and problems in concentration this response can persist beyond appropriate time-periods in response to specific events, and thereby develop into an anxiety disorder.

Anxiety disorders are not uncommon: about one in six will experience an anxiety disorder at some point . If you suffer from anxiety, you may or may not be able to pinpoint the cause. Either way, Mona can offer help by using a number of different tailored forms of treatment including cognitive behavioural therapy and hypnotherapy.

 

Anxiety Symptoms

Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

Part of combined therapy treatment often involves hypnotherapy for anxiety. Anxiety disorder rarely comes from a logical place in the brain (even if it began as a logical response), and therefore requires more than traditional counselling to treat it effectively. Hypnotherapy allows you to relax and access the parts of your mind where the anxiety comes from, allowing for effective treatment.
