Free Yourself From The Shackles Of Your Inner Stress

Many of my Melbourne anxiety hypnotherapy clients mistake their first panic attack to be a heart-attack. But the good news is that panic attacks are both very common and treatable.

An anxiety attack is a short period of overwhelming fear that comes on with no warning and for no rational reason. It can happen once or twice, or it can become an ongoing problem. The fear of having a panic attack often causes so much stress that this can bring on an attack – it’s a catch-22 situation.

There are some physiological causes of anxiety attacks. Some common triggers include withdrawing from alcohol or illegal drugs, withdrawing from psychoactive medications, a fear of having another anxiety attack, or a hereditary disposition to anxiety disorder.

Panic symptoms include:

  • Palpitations
  • Sweating
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Shortness of breath
  • Choking sensations
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Feeling detached from oneself
  • Fear of losing control or dying
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Chills or hot flushes

Even the worst panic attacks only lasts about 30 minutes – but when you’re having one, 30 minutes can seem like four hours. If you have already ruled out physiological causes, it’s highly likely that the cause of your panic attacks can be addressed with hypnotherapy.

For example, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can often contribute to panic attacks. You may have dealt with the trauma consciously through counselling and other methods – yet there are subconscious factors at play that also need to be cleared.

Also, panic attacks can come from low self-esteem or negative beliefs that have built up over time. In fact you may know EXACTLY what is causing this anxiety but feel powerless to do anyting about it. This is because all these feelings and energies are locked up in the subconscious mind.

One other contributor to anxiety, depression and panic in general is just a build-up of ‘stuff’ that has happened to you. One question you might be asking yourself is
‘why all of a sudden can’t I cope now, when I’ve been able to cope all these years?’.

The reason is because your ‘barrel is full’. Therefore, you need to find a way to empty that barrel. Anxiety hypnotherapy in Melbourne can put you in touch with the resources you need to let go of what’s not working for in your life.

Anxiety can be your subconscious mind’s way of letting you know that you’ve got some stuff to let go of. So if you are suffering from anxiety, you’re not alone. Many people experience this problem and you can do something about it by contacting a qualified melbourne hypnotherapist today.
