General anxiety disorder

Sometimes we can start to feel anxious in an increasing variety of situations, or for no obvious reason. We can even cause ourselves no end of excess anxiety just by thinking about stressful or scary things.

When there is nothing pressing to worry about, but we still experience a feeling of unease, or fearfulness, we sometimes begin to feel anxious about feeling anxious, and start to worry about random things.

This excessive worrying and anxiety can become seemingly uncontrollable and begin to affect all aspects of daily life. It can cause tiredness and poor sleep, irritability and inability to concentrate. Often the first things we notice are physical sensations, maybe palpitations and rapid breathing, dizziness or feeling feint, maybe needing frequent trips to the loo – or a whole host of other things.

Hypnotherapy can help you to remember how to relax, and relax really deeply and properly. You really can’t be anxious and relaxed at the same time, so simply remembering how to relax can be immensely beneficial. Combining hypnotherapeutic relaxation training with a mixture of Solution Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques can help you to understand the way your thoughts, feelings and actions interact to generate and maintain the anxiety, and learn how to take control of your life again.

It is really important to recognise that generalised anxiety can be a symptom of underlying physical conditions, so it is essential that your first port of call if you begin to experience persistent anxiety is your GP.
