Hypnotherapy for Panic Attacks
Celia is a 'panic attack' 'hypnotherapy specialist'
Panic attacks often feel as if they have come from no where and can be very detrimental to enjoying and going about your everyday life. They can feel as if they are holding you back from living your life as the fear of having another one can be overwhelming and intimidating. In severe cases total isolation can occur with the inability to leave home for fear of reoccurrence.
The body is producing a large dose of 'fight or flight' hormones as a way of protection - this in itself is not physically harmful though it feels very uncomfortable and can include the physical symptoms of shaking, rapid heartbeat, a shortness in breath and tightness in the chest to name a few. Often when people experience panic attacks, the biggest fear is that they will never go away. It is extremely rare for a person to suffer from panic attacks all their lives. If you are currently experiencing panic attacks you will probably find this hard to believe but it is a very treatable condition. Hypnotherapy helps by removing the underlying fear which we are not always consciously aware of and build feelings of inner confidence, safety and control.
