Anxiety Removal With Hypnotherapy
Anxiety and its symptoms are simply learned reactions. As with all thoughts and behaviour, they are impossible to ‘unlearn’, in the same way as we never forget to ride a bike or swim.
In its many and varied forms, anxiety is part of daily life for many and Karen has enabled hundreds of sufferers to manage their symptoms using a range of techniques which have proved to be fast, effective and permanent. If you’re typical, you may have lived for many years with worries and fears and their effects, which sometimes threaten to overwhelm and often prevent you from leading the life you want to live.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome, blushing, nervous coughing, bed-wetting, psoriasis, tinnitus, hypertension, headaches, teeth grinding and insomnia are just a few of the physical symptoms of anxiety which can be managed and controlled with hypnotherapy.
Anxiety and its symptoms are simply learned reactions. As with all thoughts and behaviour, they are impossible to ‘unlearn’, in the same way as we never forget to ride a bike or swim. Hypnotherapy helps by turning off the triggers which set off the chain reaction leading to panic and fear.
The subconscious mind has one primary task in life and that is to keep you safe. If something scares you (or even embarrasses you severely) the subconscious will seek to avoid the same or similar situations. There is also some evidence of a genetic predisposition. If a family member has suffered from panic disorder, you have an increased risk of suffering from it yourself, especially during a time in your life that is particularly stressful.
Panic Disorder Symptoms
A serious condition affecting around one in five people, panic disorder often emerges during the teens or early adulthood when we typically go through significant change. We seem to be most vulnerable to it during major life transitions like changing jobs, moving house, bereavement or divorce. Often, there will be an ‘initial sensitising event’ which creates an automatic subconscious ‘fight or flight’ response. This is a prehistoric reaction to perceived threat which prepares us to defend ourselves against a predator or run away. Unfortunately, it serves as no defence against the perceived threats to our safety in this day and age.
Panic disorder is marked by recurrent, spontaneous panic attacks. A panic attack is an intense period of fear or discomfort. During the attack, a person may experience the following symptoms:
- difficulty breathing, feeling as though you ‘can’t get enough air’,
- racing heartbeat,
- terror that is almost paralysing,
- dizziness, light-headedness or nausea,
- trembling, sweating, shaking ,
- choking, chest pains,
- hot flushes, or sudden chills,
- tingling in fingers or toes (‘pins and needles’),
- fear that you’re going to go mad or are about to die.
Get Back Control
To be diagnosed as a panic attack, four or more symptoms should be present. Otherwise, the attack is described as a “limited symptom attack”. Those who experience panic attacks usually describe them as occurring “out of the blue.”
You probably recognise this as the classic ‘fight or flight’ response that human beings experience when in danger. During a panic attack, these symptoms seem to arise from out of nowhere in seemingly harmless situations. They can even happen while you are asleep.
Hypnotherapy teaches you to control your breathing and heart rate. It enables you to relax at will, even during the onset of a panic attack, stopping it in its tracks and reducing level of anxiety.

|Karen is a fantastic listener, and is able to very quickly grasp the issue you have come to her with. She provides helpful, relevant and practical advice. I’ve found having the audio sessions available to me at home really useful. They are helping me to relax and also address particular problems in a safe and proactive way. In just a short time, I am already noticing improvements in the way I think, and in addressing and changing old unhelpful patterns of behaviour.|

Karen is amazin!

|I went to Karen not knowing much about hypnotherapy and just hoping the reviews I read about her were legitimate and that this type of therapy would help me. Thankfully, it did!! Karen is amazing. She is so friendly and warming. Her presence is so comforting and strong, which made me feel strong and secure. I left feeling like the person I used to feel like, she gave me strength and determination. Which makes me want to continue with hypnotherapy and gives me a push to listen to the audios and not slack off. Karen began by asking me why I was there, it then progressed and got deeper. Karen explained to me what had happened but also assured me that I was going to be fine. It was great to hear that the way I was feeling was normal and that it was easy to fix. After chatting for a while, Karen then performed the hypnotherapy. I felt so comfortable even though I had no clue what was going to happen. After what felt like meditation, I came out feeling amazing. I’m so grateful for Karen and delighted I took the initiative to go.|
Highly trusted and recommended.
|Glenn on November 21, 2017 at 17:21:16|
|Karen is very focused, understanding and supportive. She operates in a calm and non-judgemental manner; her pragmatic approach is clear and incisive. Karen simply works alongside her clients to achieve their specific objectives in a warm, holistic environment. The audio files supplied were very useful and represent strong added value in support of, and following, the one to one sessions. As a result I hold her in high regard and absolutely recommend her.|
Fantatstic sessions and effective treatment.
|Anon on November 20, 2017 at 01:12:53|

An instinctive therapist with a real gift.
|Kitty on November 19, 2017 at 19:47:20|
|I have found Karen very intuitive and empathetic as a therapist, closing in instinctively on the causes and concerns that may have produced my particular symptoms. I found the therapy and audio guides very helpful and a supportive form of ongoing treatment. Would definelty recommend to friends and family.|
