Anxiety Counselling and Therapy Solutions in Wombourne
Almost all problems that people experience involve some degree of Anxiety which might range from “mild concern” through to full blown “panic”.
Feelings of Anxiety can strike at almost any time, and it is highly likely that every single person will experience them at some point in their lives.
There are many factors that can contribute to these feelings (or excessive feelings) of worry and stress, for example you may develop Anxiety about an impending job interview, money worries, problems in your personal relationships or even just the day to day pressures of everyday life.
These feelings are in fact completely normal and a natural reaction to stress or fear, however, for some people the level of worry can become so “large” or “significant” that it starts to affect their ability to get on with living.
For many sufferers Anxiety can feel like it is constant and that you never get a chance to really relax.
The good news is that anxious feelings CAN be helped with Hypnotherapy.
Why Do I Experience Anxiety?
Anxiety is an absolutely normal reaction to any situation where we believe we are in “danger” (not necessarily that we ARE in danger).
We are “hard-wired” to respond in this way and we do not have any conscious control over the reaction, however, it is crucial to be aware that we DO have control over what we believe is dangerous – it’s not this “Reaction” which is “inappropriate”, but what we believe the danger is!
When our mind prepares to deal with danger it considers through three possible ways of solving the problem we are faced with: (1) FREEZE and hope that the danger goes away, (2) FLIGHT – escape from the danger, normally by running away, and (3) FIGHT – confront and fight the danger – the feelings associated with these actions are what you experience as Anxiety.
Whichever option we choose our mind ensures that our body is physically ready for any of the solutions by flooding our bloodstream with Adrenalin, shutting down the non-essential bodily functions (rationale thinking, digestion etc) and generally preparing for survival.
These chemical changes in our bodies are experienced physically as the symptoms of Anxiety!
