Hypnotherapy can be used to help with a wide range of conditions. I am based in Andover, Hampshire or run sessions online, and I prefer to specialise and deliver amazing results for clients struggling with the issues on this page.
Anxiety is quite a broad term that covers a range of different issues.
The types of anxiety that I get the best results with are:
I do also sometimes work with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) if your GP or mental health team consider it appropriate.
Phobias are a type of anxiety where the symptoms are triggered by a particular situation or event.
The most common phobias that I work with are:
There are many different types of phobia that can range from a mild issue to a very severe issue but hypnosis and hypnotherapy is well known for being helpful for phobias.
It can be really scary to work on a phobia and often people are concerned about seeking help in case they are forced to do something they are uncomfortable with.
Please be reassured that at Anxiety 2 Confidence we move at your pace and make sure you are happy and ready to start challenging your phobia after we have given you the tools you need to manage how you feel.
Panic attacks can be really scary when they happen and can have huge number of symptoms, some of which include.
I would recommend that you go to your GP first if you have experienced these symptoms, just to double check that they are a panic attack.
Once we know that we are dealing with panic attacks, hypnotherapy teaches you how to control them and calm yourself.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) can be a very difficult condition to live with as often we don't know what causes it.
IBS has been linked to stress and anxiety and there is more and more evidence that hypnotherapy can help ease the symptoms.
If you think you may have IBS then see your GP first to rule out any other causes before considering hypnotherapy.
Impostor syndrome is where someone feels like the things they have achieved are down to luck.
These people constantly worry that others will find out that they aren't as good as they seem or will be seen as a fraud.
Confidence is something that can be learnt, even if you have never felt it before!
Lack of confidence is a common side effect of anxiety and so generally speaking, we work on confidence when the anxiety is under control.
The key thing about building confidence is first working out how you are damaging your confidence.
I have my own pony and fully understand the mindset issues that horse riders face regularly.
I often work with riders who have had a bad fall or their confidence has been knocked.
I can also help people ignore the negativity that sometimes occurs on yards and show people how they can enjoy their horse and achieve whatever level of riding they want to.
Many of my clients aren't local to Andover or more recently confined to their homes thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. There are two different ways that you can get the same great benefits of hypnosis here at Anxiety 2 Confidence.
These are run exactly the same as in person sessions just over our secure clinic video call system. All you need is a laptop or PC and you will get face to face support to overcome your anxiety. We can also do hypnosis over the call and your personalised mp3 is sent to you after the session.
The online courses are a great way to get the benefits of therapy in your own home and on your schedule. Our courses range from short self-hypnosis courses and positivity challenges to our full Anxiety 2 Confidence course with downloadable CBT exercises and hypnosis mp3s to show you how to take control of your anxiety.
