Help for Anxiety in Milton Keynes
Anxiety can be experienced at different levels when facing particularly stressful situations. However, anxiety disorders are severe and can disrupt the day-to-day life of an individual. They can be brought on by a fear of something that happened in the past; or what we imagine may happen in the future. When individuals suffer from an anxiety disorder, it may lead to avoidance of certain situations, because they fear it may be triggered. This can in turn lead to relationship and / or career problems such as not being able to achieve potential job opportunities, or promotions and being unable to develop personal relationships. Cognitive Hypnosis may help you overcome your fear.
Symptoms of Anxiety:
Because there are different types of anxiety, and there are a number of different symptoms, however the most common include:·
- Reduced attention span
- Difficulty in concentrating
- Loss of sexual interest
- Loss of appetite
- Muscle tension
- Difficulty breathing
- A tight feeling in the chest
- Difficulty sleeping
- Poor performance
- Dizziness and light headedness
- Lump in the throat
Causes of Anxiety:
As each individual reacts differently to different pressures, determining one cause is difficult. Research suggests there are a number of contributing factors such as: Brain Chemistry: Some medication seems to alter the chemical imbalances in some individual’s brains, suggesting that there could be a chemical imbalance. Heredity: Evidence suggests that anxiety can run in families. However evidence is not clear as to whether genetic factors account for the disorder or whether similar environments and life experiences contribute to its cause. Life experiences: The development of the disorder is believed to be linked to long term exposure to abuse, poverty, violence or drugs. Personality: Research suggests that your personality type may determine whether or not you are susceptible to developing this disorder.

How is General anxiety dealt with?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (see my CBT page) is highly recommended by the medical profession for the Treatment of anxiety. I tend to use CBT and hypnosis together (cognitive hypnotherapy) both to identify negative thinking and find more balanced thoughts and to help you to de-stress with hypnotic relaxation. Mindfulness (living in the here and now) is also recommended by NICE (the National Institute for health and care excellence) for helping reduce anxiety.
Sometimes GP’s prescribe anti-depressants for a short period of time in addition to any other therapies.
