HYPNOSIS FOR PANIC ATTACKS

 

Learn the triggers, techniques and methods to manage any fear and take control of the situation with hypnosis for panic attacks…

Imagine feeling cool, calm and in control…

First, let me put your mind at rest – if you are suffering from anxiety or panic attacks you are not alone. It is estimated that one in four people in the UK are suffering from some form of anxiety and it is probably the most common problem presented at a general hypnotherapy practice. I think it’s important to know this because it can feel like a very lonely and frightening experience. However, the good news is you have come to exactly the right place because hypnosis for panic attacks is one of the best treatments to help with anxiety disorders and is a key focus for the Wisdom Room.

As you are probably aware if you have suffered from any kind of anxiety – some of the most common physical symptoms can include a speeding heart rate, shortness of breath, dry mouth, sweaty palms, a tight chest, headaches, or a bad stomach while the psychological symptoms can include feeling tense, agitated, irritable or even paranoid. Clients often describe a fear of ‘losing control’, ‘climbing the walls’ or the dread that something bad is going to happen (such as blackout, seizure, heart attack, or death).

Can hypnotherapy help with panic attacks?

YES! Hypnosis may help some individuals manage and reduce the frequency and intensity of panic attacks.

Hypnotherapy for panic attacks typically involves:

1. Relaxation Techniques: Hypnosis induces deep relaxation, which can counter the physical tension and anxiety associated with panic attacks.

2. Identifying Triggers: Jane can work with you to identify the specific triggers or situations that lead to panic attacks.

3. Cognitive Restructuring: Hypnotherapy can assist in changing negative thought patterns and irrational fears that contribute to panic attacks.

4. Desensitization: Hypnosis may help desensitize you to the anxiety-provoking situations, making them less triggering.

5. Self-Hypnosis: You may learn self-hypnosis techniques to manage anxiety in real-time, which can be useful during a panic attack.

6. Reframing Thoughts: Jane can help you reframe negative thought patterns, promoting a more positive and stress-resistant mindset.

7. Coping Strategies: You can learn effective coping strategies, such as visualization or self-hypnosis, to manage stress in daily life.

8. Addressing Root Causes: Hypnotherapy can explore the root causes of stress, such as past traumas, and help you process and resolve them.

9. Increased Resilience: Hypnotherapy may boost your emotional resilience, helping you handle stressors more effectively.

10. Enhanced Mindfulness: Hypnosis can promote mindfulness and mental clarity, which can lead to a more relaxed state.

11. Muscle Relaxation:  Hypnosis for relaxation can guide you to relax your muscles, which can physically release tension and contribute to an overall sense of relaxation.

12: Improved Breath Work: Hypnotherapy may include techniques to help regulate your breathing, slow your heart rate, and instill a sense of calm.

What is a panic attack?

A panic attack is a sudden and intense episode of overwhelming fear or anxiety. It often includes physical and psychological symptoms, such as: 

  1. Rapid heartbeat or palpitations.
  2. Shortness of breath or hyperventilation.
  3. Sweating and trembling.
  4. Chest pain or discomfort.
  5. Feeling dizzy or lightheaded.
  6. Nausea or stomach distress.
  7. Numbness or tingling in the extremities.
  8. A sense of impending doom or a fear of losing control.

What happens when we have a panic attack?

When we are anxious, the physical symptoms are partly caused by the brain which sends lots of messages down nerves to make the heart, lungs, and other parts of the body ‘work faster’. In addition, you release stress hormones (such as adrenaline) into the bloodstream which affect the body. All of these changes form part of the classic ‘fight or flight’ syndrome. This is a natural and automatic response we have built in all of us since cavemen as a protection mechanism.

While useful when faced with real danger, (like a hungry tiger) this response can be problematic if it’s stimulated by events or situations which don’t hold any real danger or where the threat has been created internally and is not ‘externally real’.

 Panic attacks can occur unexpectedly or in response to a specific trigger. They are usually brief, lasting a few minutes, but can be extremely distressing. Recurrent panic attacks may indicate a panic disorder, a type of anxiety disorder that often requires treatment, which can include therapy, medication, or a combination of both.

Why try hypnosis for panic attacks?

However panic attacks affect you, I think everyone would agree that they make for an incredibly unpleasant experience. So, you have done absolutely the right thing looking for ways to alleviate this problem. Why suffer in silence when there is treatment available like hypnosis for panic attacks that can really help you feel better? Hypnotherapy is a natural and safe approach to treating anxiety disorders and unlike many prescription medications doesn’t have the side effects. 

Does hypnosis work for anxiety and panic attacks?

Here at the Wisdom Room, we take an integrative therapeutic approach using a combination of Clinical HypnotherapyNeuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)Transformational Coaching and the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help reduce your anxiety by simultaneously retraining both the conscious and unconscious parts of your mind. As a result, you should be left feeling physically more relaxed, mentally calmer and altogether more confident and positive about whatever is happening in your life.

Online Checklist

How to get the most from your Sofa Session!

Check Your Space

Being prepared is an important part of therapy. So, please find a safe, warm, space (where you will be undisturbed) for your session. Please do not conduct an online session when you are driving, working, or doing any activity that requires your full attention.

Check You Are Comfy

It's also important that you feel warm and comfortable during your session, so please choose a room with a comfy chair, sofa, or even a bed where you can rest back and relax. Just make sure your back is straight and you don't feel too cold.

Check You Have Water

It's also a good idea to stay hydrated during our session and avoid a dry throat. If you came to see me, in person, for an appointment you would be offered a refreshing glass of mineral water. So, why not pour yourself a glass of water for your sofa session too, or make yourself a mug of tea?! I also recommend making sure that you are not too hungry or too tired before a session to allow yourself to be fully present.

Check You Won't Be Disturbed

If you live in a shared house or have family or a partner, please do let anyone else living in your home know that you need some quiet space for a confidential appointment. It's important that you aren't disturbed by people or pets and you can speak in private.

*If you are in crisis though do let loved ones or your emergency contact know if you need support.

Check The Internet Connection

A reliable and stable broadband connection is necessary (although we will put in place safeguards in case of a connection failure.) One-to-one Zoom and WhatsApp calls are free of charge and the software can be downloaded to tablets and smartphones as well as a computer. But you don't even need to have your own account. I can simply send you a live Zoom link just before our appointment slot for you to click on.

*Please note that occasionally a slow connection may result in video calls dropping out which means we may have to revert to voice-only calls.

Check Your Device

A desktop, laptop, tablet, or even smartphone with a decent sound and camera are all suitable for an online Wisdom Room session. Your device needs to be securely supported and not hand-held though. Remember to switch off any notifications or alerts from emails, or phone calls etc before the session to avoid interruptions!

Check Your Online Appointment Link

Check you have received your Wisdom Room appointment link or email. When booking an online appointment, payment is requested before your session. So, please double-check this has gone through. Only then will you be sent an online link to the session.

Check Your Phone

It's important to have your phone to hand (in case of loss of connection or emergencies) so we can still message each other but please be sure to set it to ‘silent mode’ during the session to avoid disturbance. If we get cut off for any reason I will send you a text or SMS message.

Check Your Sound

Please keep your microphone on during the hypnotherapy as you may be asked to reply to questions. * Please also note that headphones or earpieces can enhance the experience but are not essential. I will ask you whether you would like background music during any hypnosis.

Check You Don't Need The Loo!

Last, but not least, it's always a good idea to schedule in a toilet visit before the session! However, if you need to move, stretch your legs, or have a loo break during treatment that's absolutely fine just let me know!  Your comfort is the priority during any session...
