WHAT IS ANXIETY?
Generally speaking anxiety is our response to something we perceive as dangerous or stressful in our lives, often referred to as the fight / flight response. Issues occur when this response is taken out of context or exaggerated to the supposed 'danger'.
As I have discovered in the past anxiety doesn't always present itself typically - sometimes it creeps up in the background of your every day life not really giving you any indication until it reaches a point whereby it has to show itself one way or another, ie; through an anxiety attack. Symptoms can include chest pains, shortness of breath, sense of panic or dread, dizziness and emotional upset - people can be forgiven for thinking they are having a heart attack!!
However sometimes anxiety built up over time can become the fuel for another condition, for example a specific phobia, Insomnia, OCD or Irritable bowel syndrome.
While most of the time we can manage mild anxiety some people can find it difficult to control their worrying thoughts and it can impact their day to day lives.
Once you have been diagnosed with an anxiety condition there are several methods to assist you and Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is one of these.
