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.

Review Karen Martin

|Karen was extremely professional but at the same time very kind and caring. Her service was amazing and really worked well. I would totally recommend her if you are looking for a hypnotherapist.|
Pleased we visited Karen

|My son found the sessions very useful and continues to use the audio recordings. The OCD routines have not been stopped completely but anxiety and the ability to get to sleep have certainly improved along side a more positive outlook.|
Life changing !

|Karen really helped me at a very difficult time in my life i will forever be indebted to her , her audio sessions are still helping me almost a year later!|
I found the whole process a gateway to a new way of being.

|At the beginning I was slightly uncomfortable about the thought of losing 'control' through hypnosis. The reality was very different. Imagine being in a state of complete and utter relaxation with your mind being readily and accepting of a new possibility and future that just feels helpful and supportive. Through frequent listening of the very creative audio tapes the new future is anchored and becomes your reality. I found the whole process a gateway to a new way of being.|
Professional and trusted hypnotherapist

|The sessions were very useful to me, and the back up of the audio sessions helped a lot.|
|Sarah M on August 11, 2017 at 15:32:37|
|Karen is very professional and clearly has a great deal of experience in her field. I found the recordings to be a useful way of relaxing and hearing the key messages over again, in between sessions. I would highly recommend Karen.|
I would definitely recommend Karen.

|Coming to see Karen was the best thing I ever did. The sessions with her really have changed my life. She was so easy to talk to and I felt she really understood everything I had been going through.|
A fantastic professional
|KJ on August 03, 2017 at 22:36:36|
|Karen made me feel immediately at ease and able to talk openly about my concerns. She was sympathetic yet objective, encouraging yet not probing. She was professional and a brilliant source of comfort and help to me. She made hypnotherapy accessible and a real option for me and helped me cope with bereavement and grief in a totally different way.|
Karen has helped me to develop coping mechanisms to deal with anxiety.
