Hypnosis For Panic Disorder
How Hypnotherapy can help people with anxiety and panic attacks

Panic Disorder can be quite common and when they are first experienced tend be very distressing as some of the symptoms include chest pains and shortness of breath. There are several reasons why it could occur. Following studies it is now known that stress is one of the greatest reasons for panic and anxiety attacks, including being in situations that cause stress and panic. Regrettably, people can undergo panic disorder suddenly and for no apparent reason. It is thought that a panic attack is brought on by the body’s own fight or flight response, where adrenaline is brought on, preparing the body to defend itself in a dangerous situation.

Panic attacks cause avoidance habits which can limit the person’s life. It can cause worry and anxiety attacks, as you don’t know where or when an anxiety attack could happen. The chance of an anxiety attack happening again can stop people venturing out or entering into any situation where they think it might be triggered. A loss of confidence and self esteem is common for people with anxiety attacks, which in itself can lead to further anxiety attacks. An anxiety attack itself can be extremely frightening to anyone experiencing it and upsetting for other people around them as well. 1 in 10 of us will go through panic and anxiety attacks in our lifetime. For somebody living with anxiety attacks, however, they can have attacks on a regular basis, causing huge problems in everyday life.

In quite a few cases, a clinician can prescribe drugs to combat anxious feelings and stress, but without the right form of treatment it is unlikely that conventional medication can completely eliminate the underlying problems associated with panic disorder. Therapies, such as hypnosis for panic attacks and anxiety, may help the subconscious mind to make behavioural changes that reduce the effect of panic attacks or, in some cases, eliminate them completely.
