Tired of Feeling Anxious?
Anxiety is a crippling condition that can literally squeeze the life out of you and it is affecting 1 in every 4 Australians which makes it one of the most common conditions that we face in our society today.
According to Beyond Blue, in the past six years the number of sufferers has increased by 40% and there is an expectation that these numbers will continue to rise. And even though anxiety is considered a normal reaction to stress, it can develop into a problem creating feelings of fear, worry, uneasiness and dread.
For some people fears or thoughts that are constant and distressing can interfere with daily living and they can experience things like:
- Panic or anxiety attacks
- Physical reactions like trembling, sweating, faintness, rapid heartbeat, difficulties breathing, stomach pain or nausea
- Avoidance behaviour – so going to extremes to avoid a situation that could bring on anxiety or panic
- Situation specific anxiety like wedding nerves that are way beyond the pale or really extreme responses to ordinary activities like driving the car.
If symptoms are left untreated, they can start to take over a person's life and lead to social isolation and depression, even affecting relationships with family and friends.
Clinical trials and ongoing client outcomes prove that Hypnotherapy successfully addresses stress, anxiety, and related symptoms with a corresponding increase in enjoyment of life, personal control and health and well-being.
Specialist treatment for panic attacks and anxiety is available at the Albury Hypnotherapy Clinic. To speak with Karen personally call 0409 777 116.
