Anxiety

 To overcome anxiety, we work together so you can recognise and deal with your triggers for anxious feelings, learn relaxation techniques and make the lifestyle changes which will help you. You will learn the tools and techniques you need to get your anxiety under control.

Types of Anxiety

Anxiety is normal human behaviour experienced by most of us from time to time. We all feel anxious in high pressure scenarios such as public speaking, exams, job interviews and hospital appointments. This can cause sleepless nights, difficulty eating and concentrating. There are many different types, including panic attacks, phobias and social anxiety.

Phobias

Phobias are irrational and often crippling fears which  impact your life. They can be of objects (e.g. snakes or mice), experiences (e.g. heights, crowded places or driving), or ideas (fear of germs).

Panic Attacks

Panic attacks are intense periods of fear or discomfort.

During the attack, a person may experience:

  • Difficulty breathing, feeling as though you ‘can’t get enough air’
  • Racing heartbeat
  • Terror that is almost paralysing
  • Dizziness, light-headedness or nausea
  • Trembling, sweating, shaking
  • Choking, chest pains
  • Hot flushes, or sudden chills
  • Tingling in fingers or toes (‘pins and needles’)
  • Fear that you’re going to go mad or are about to die

Social Anxiety

Social anxiety is a fear of social situations, feeling overly self-aware around other people, worrying what they think of you, being unable to start a conversation with strangers. It’s a kind of crippling form of shyness when every day situations become difficult to manage.

By using a combination of cognitive behavioural techniques, relaxation therapy and mindfulness, I can help you overcome your anxiety and provide you the tools to relax in high pressure situations. The sessions will have long term benefits and will help you feel better, get better and stay better.

Success Stories

"Before I started working with Celia I was constantly anxious, worrying about my health and going into a health anxiety downward spiral. I found working with Celia really helpful. She is compassionate and informative, and using various different tools according to my own, individual needs. I was reassured by her evidence-based approach. I found it very reassuring that her goal is to equip people with tools to help them rather than create a reliance on coming to see her.

Working with Celia, I discovered it’s normal to feel some level of anxiety. I learned to prioritise self-care and my own mental well-being. I now have tools to help me reduce my general level of anxiety and to stop myself from catastrophising when health issues arise. I now have much less anxiety in my life. I now treat myself with more self-compassion. I am now confident I have the ability and the tools to cope with anxiety-inducing events. This makes me feel empowered to be able to manage my own mental health.

Hypnotherapy is essentially tuning into the power of your imagination and using it in helpful ways. It is not like it is sometimes represented in the media.

I would recommend Celia to anyone who is struggling with anxiety.”

“I visited Celia for some help with my social anxiety. I had been offered a fantastic job, but I was full of fear and trepidation about accepting it, and had even convinced myself I didn’t want it. I knew deep down, this was the culmination of years of anxiety that had held me back for too long. With limited time available I contacted Celia, we talked things through, then set to work. In total I had just three sessions and the results were fantastic.

I was able to speak publicly for the first time. I actually look forward to the opportunity to try it out and improve now! My fears about social situations have become a thing of the past. Now, I am much calmer and at ease in everyday life; actively seeking out conversations and interactions. I wasn’t sure if hypnotherapy would be effective when it came to something personal like anxiety. It was. Seeing Celia was one of the best decisions I have made. She has helped me far more than I could ever have hoped. ”
