Help with Anxiety and services provided by Quays Clinic of Hypnotherapy

Anxiety is a very normal response to the many different situations that cause a person everyday stress. It is a very normal defensive mechanism in the mind. The feelings are there to keep us away from what the subconscious part of the mind considers to be a threat to a person’s survival.

This is commonly known as the “fight or flight response”. When the symptoms surface the individual person will either at all cost try to resolve the problem or in many cases run away from it.

This is why you should consider using hypnotherapy for anxiety.

Do You Suffer With:

  • Speaking in front of a large audience.
  • Doing a job interview.
  • Taking an exam or test.
  • When confrontation takes place with another person.
  • When worried about sexual performance.
  • When a person is surrounded by too many people.
  • When a person is forced into a situation at work or in a relationship.

Anxiety disorders are psychological disorders which are characterized by feelings of severe anxiety or fear. You quite often see the symptoms appear when someone is having an anxiety attack or panic attack.

Anxiety disorders can devastate a person’s social life and relationship with others if not immediately treated.

Social Anxiety Disorder

Social anxiety disorder (SAD) which is also known as social phobia is the avoidance of everyday situations where a person has to interact socially with other people. Social anxiety disorder can surface where the person has a fear of public speaking, being humiliated by someone or a fear of being embarrassed in front of other people.


Common Anxiety Disorders In Children

People with this disorder quite often see the problem manifest itself in symptoms of not being able to speak, blushing and profuse sweating. A very common disorder in children is school phobia. This is where the signs are very visible.

You can quite often see the signs where a child is being bullied by other children, doesn’t get along with their teacher, or finds the amount of work that they are being asked to complete unbearable.

One of the most common forms of a school anxiety disorder is where a child will avoid speaking in front of their classmates. This type of problem can be easily resolved by using hypnotherapy. A professional hypnotherapist like Ian Smith at Quays Clinic will be able to help you.

If you are booking an appointment for your child, a parent must accompany the child and remain with the child whilst the hypnotherapy session is taking place.

Anxiety Medication

There are many different types of medications prescribed by doctors. Unfortunately most of them are just a quick fix which come with many different side effects:

  • Alprazolam (Xanax).
  • Lorazepam (Ativan).
  • Diazepam (Valium).

Many people suffering from chronic anxiety quite often discover that they have to try many different types of medication until they find the one that seems to help them. This is where another problem surfaces. The person prescribed the drugs on many occasions become dependent upon taking the drug. After only a short period of time they need more of the same drug to get the same effect.

This is where addiction to medication begins.
