Panic Attacks

Maire has a very successful experience of dealing with people experiencing panic attacks using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Nureo Linguistic Programming and of course Hypnosis.

If you suffer with anxiety or panic attacks, you already know that they have a huge effect on a person’s life. The panic attack manifests itself as a simple, but unexplainable feeling of nervousness, through to a full-blown anxiety. Panic or anxiety attack symptoms are wide ranging, and can include palpitations, tingling in the extremities, shortness of breath, sweating, a feeling of light-headedness, feeling hot or cold, feeling sick, fear of losing control, fainting, or feelings of unexplained but impending doom.

Hypnosis treatment has advantages for Panic Attack sufferers:

  • It is one of the most successful treatment approaches for Panic Attacks.
  • You generally get rid of the panic attacks in the first session.
  • It is a relaxing form of treatment and generally very enjoyable.
  • It is completely without negative side effects.

Panic attacks do serve a purpose. They are actually an integral part of our body’s natural defence mechanism. There was a time when this fight or flight response would have saved your life. Unfortunately, when imminent danger is no longer present it only serves to frustrate you and throw your life off track. These episodes may have begun in response to an actual high stress situation, but they can continue to resurface long after the incident has passed.

This intense experience does not only appear as a result of a physical threat; our minds can create the same response as the result of an overload of stress. You might not even notice you are under so much pressure. Sometimes we get so busy we don’t even realise the level of emotional exhaustion we are facing until our bodies react in this exaggerated response. It definitely gets your attention.

With the help of hypnosis you can learn to recognise the feelings that precede your panic attacks and release the hold they have on your life. There is a safe place in which to face these things. A place where you can go any time you wish and truly relax.
