A large number of my clients suffer from Generalised Anxiety
Disorder (GAD) and I’ve been privileged to help them lead a less fearful and
more rewarding life; giving them the tools to understand and manage their own
symptoms. It’s great to see clients put their new-found knowledge into
practice; week-on-week I see them gain confidence and grow.
Sadly, in the last few years, I’ve noticed an increase in
enquiries from parents seeking help for children suffering from anxiety
The number of school-age children I’ve treated for anxiety has
quadrupled; and the number is rising.
It only took me one session with a professional Hypnotherapist to decide that’s exactly what I wanted to do. The results, for me, exceeded my expectations, added to the fact that I didn’t get stuck in zombie like state and appeared to have all my faculties post session, I was convinced.
Choosing a course wasn’t easy. I almost stumbled on The Essex Institute’s Professional Practitioner Course and despite searching and searching the oracle (Google) for several weeks, I always returned to the Institute’s course and finally settled on one to one mentoring with Terence Watts, the Principal and writer of the course.
Probably the most profound of all fear and anxiety symptoms is the phobic response. Having said that, it is a fair to say that many phobias respond very well to a variety of therapies, even when they have been present for a considerable number of years.
I myself have suffered a fear of open water swimming - which has been pretty inconvenient given I enjoy triathlon, that said, open water swimming and the lobbing of my neoprene clad bod into the murkiness of rivers, lakes and seas is a personal choice - for many, their fears and phobic responses exhibit in everyday, unavoidable circumstances such as driving, public transport.
