Hypnosis for Anxiety

Anxiety disorders come in various forms and oftentimes can be very different from one sufferer to another, with symptoms ranging from the mild to the very severe. Some forms of anxiety are completely fear driven while others have their origins firmly rooted in anger relating to past experiences of hurt and personal injustice.

There are those too who suffer from general anxiety disorder (GAD), which can be quite complex in how they are manifested and others relate more to social anxiety, with all that said it stands to show that no one anxiety picture fits all and therefore that when seeking the help of a professional therapist, it pays to know you have arrived at the right solution, because identifying the anxiety is paramount when seeking to resolve the cause.

Anxiety in itself is the body’s own natural response to danger, and can be undoubtedly helpful when it comes to a situation that may be dangerous or which requires your highest level of protective awareness, like when it comes to alerting your super awareness in preparing the body for action. However when the anxiety experienced is at an inappropriate time or too intense it’s a cause of the huge release of chemicals into the bloodstream including adrenaline, which causes the body & mind unease when not required effectively triggering the body’s fight, flight or freeze mechanism. Depression often quickly follows on as a response to anxiety and this is further fuelled by embarrassment and shame, which only further complicate the original anxiety.

People have varying degrees of background relating to their early childhood experiences, which is where these coping mechanisms always originate back to. Many sufferers react very differently depending on their individual level of or type of anxiety; so many people with anxiety also react very differently to their environment finding themselves more often than not having their anxieties triggered by sustained stressful events in their adult lives.

This can even cause physical symptoms of anxiety and may include: Palpitations (racing heart), shortage of breath, tightness of the chest, dry mouth, nausea, trembling, sweating, dizziness, blurred vision or combinations of any of the above. Psychological symptoms may include: tension, agitation, fearing losing control, irritability, dreading catastrophic physical incapacitation and feelings of detachment from the outside world. Some people may experience problems of hyperventilation (over-breathing), resulting in living in constant fear of a so-called dread ‘Anxiety Attack’.

For years I’ve struggled with anxiety/panic attacks when faced with going to quiet, crowded,
enclosed spaces, especially churches! After only 3 sessions Silvia has helped me manage and control
my anxiety and fears. Silvia immediately put me at ease with her warm, friendly personality and I
would highly recommend her to anyone…I only wish I went to Silvia sooner!



I went to see Sylvia for anxiety. I have suffered from this for years. I have to say thank you to Sylvia
for all your help during my hypnosis sessions. Every morning I would wake up with anxiety, I would
feel a lot of fear like something bad was going to happen. It was so bad it would paralyze me most
morning where I would sit there and think of all the bad things that could happen. It stopped me
from living my life fully for years. Every week after a session I would feel much better. When I
finished my sessions I have noticed gradually over the last few weeks how much my life have
improved. I have not once sat there in the morning and think of all the bad things that could
happen. I get up every morning and get on with my life and the more I engage in my life the more
my life gets better. I’m noticing every week I am feeling much better and I expect every week to get
better and better from here on in. Hypnosis has changed my life so much. Sylvia is one of the nicest
person I have ever met. From the minute you enter her clinic you feel at ease in her friendly
company. Her gentle but firm approach during hypnosis is very calming and you feel so relaxed after
it. If you are from the South East and your thinking of doing hypnosis session for whatever reason
Sylvia is the woman to go to. Thank you Sylvia you are a star.
