Hypnotherapy in Newmarket for Panic Attacks
Anxiety, Stress & Panic Attacks

Panic attacks can seem to come from nowhere – one minute you’re getting on with things and before you know it you’re in the grip of a panic attack. Panic attack sufferers talk about physical symptoms such as feeling sick, needing the toilet, shaking, shortness of breath, dizziness and sweating. They may believe they are having a heart attack or stroke or that there is something wrong with them and they may fear fainting or losing control.


There may also be a huge need to get out of that situation or place as soon as they can and some can end up stuck, feeling safe only when they are at home.


What is a panic attack?


Essentially, panic attacks are part of the fight or flight survival instinct we all have. If there is danger then your mind gets your body ready to take action to fight or run. All the physical symptoms associated with panic attacks are your mind’s way of getting you ready to get out of there to keep you safe.


It’s important that we have this instinct – if we had to consciously think about getting ready to face danger then it could already be too late – however, using hypnotherapy & NLP we want to make sure that it only kicks in when needed.


Why do we have panic attacks?


Panic attacks are generally linked to the amount of stress and anxiety we have in our lives. When that stress and anxiety reaches too high a level, our unconscious mind interprets the situation as being dangerous (although it actually isn’t really) and gets us ready to escape that danger.


And as our mind looks for patterns, it is possible for the panic response to become linked to an object or situation and to spread into similar experiences. This is why you can be fine nearly all the time but in one of those trigger situations the panic attack ‘automatically’ kicks in. And the more you experience the panic attacks, the more you may actually start to fear them happening, thus increasing your anxiety and stress further.


Ending panic attacks


In the experience of my clients, if you visit a doctor, you are likely to be offered tablets to help deal with the fear and panic. They may suggest counselling and some may suggest hypnotherapy. In fact, I’ve found the number of doctors suggesting hypnotherapy and referring clients to be increasing.


Using hypnosis and NLP we can help the unconscious mind recognise that the situations triggering the panic attacks are not life threatening – effectively taking the panic away from those situations for the future. Clients who take time to relax (thereby reducing stress and anxiety) also tend to find an improvement in their fear and anxiety.
