Are panic attacks on the increase in Ireland? It would be a very interesting topic of a survey because certainly in my hypnotherapy clinic, there has been a steady increase in enquiries from clients suffering from panic episodes.

Do you suffer from panic attacks? Do you suddenly feel panicky just out of the blue, for no apparent reason? Does this anxiety happen when there is no apparent danger?

Panic attacks can be overcome easily and permanently with hypnotherapy.

Panic Attacks And You

The most common question everyone who suffers from panic attacks asks is – can they be cured? Well the great news is “YES”. A “panic attack” is simply your brain’s anxiety switch getting stuck in the “on” position. It’s just as simple as that! So, in other words, when you experience an attack, your body thinks it’s being attacked by a ferocious wild animal and produces symptoms that would be appropriate in that situation – palpitations, sweaty hands, increased blood pressure, etc. It’s the classic fight or flight mechanism, and it’s working brilliantly.

Anxiety Out Of The Blue

The only problem, of course, is that it works brilliantly at times when it’s not appropriate. So in other words, you may experience a panic attack when you are mildly stressed, or have to be at an appointment at a certain time. Neither of these situations is like being attacked by a wild animal (in the example above), but yet your brain still produces these responses.

What Causes Panic Attacks?

The causes of panic attacks are many and varied. Each person has their own unique set of circumstances, memories, etc., that have helped to cause their overwhelming anxiety. For some people, it may be a traumatic episode in their recent past that has triggered the attack. For others, the root cause may lie in their childhood.

Effective Treatment With Hypnotherapy

There is treatment available through hypnosis and hypnotherapy. All that is necessary is to get the subconscious mind to recognise that the panic attack is inappropriate and recalibrate your anxiety scale so that you can distinguish what is a cause for real anxiety from what is an ordinary everyday occurence.
