The most common problem I see is Anxiety in various guises, including Panic Attacks and Phobias. This can range from sudden panic attacks, to a constant feeling of danger and hyper-vigilance. Panic attacks can be sparked by certain situations, such as having to drive across a bridge. Plus, of course, there are a myriad of phobias. Even with phobias though, everyone's problem is unique to him or her. I have to add a disclaimer here because, unfortunately, it doesn't always help. Please don't expect a miracle cure: it's not going to happen.
It's hard for others to understand how difficult it is, when you suffer from anxieties.

One distressing aspect of anxiety can be that it can sometimes feel almost like a child's fear. When someone with arachnophobia sees a spider, they are overwhelmed by the phobia. It feels completely alien and uncontrollable, almost as if the person is experiencing someone else's fear. This is often because the anxiety itself is coming from an old memory, often from childhood, and so it is a child's emotion. We're not equipped to understand how to cope with such situations. Anxiety Fife Hypnotherapy (formerly the Phobia Society).
There are many different types of flying phobia. Some sufferers are only scared on take-off or landing; others that someone will open a door. Some feel panicky until the doors are closed, whilst others worry all the time. As with many phobias: People usually panic about panicking.
Another major cause of anxiety is PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). It's a profound anxiety which
results from a traumatic event or period of time, usually life-threatening or violent, although witnessing a violent event a sudden can scause it. The term was really first applied to Vietnam war veterans and was coined to try to get the public and politicians to recognise that what was once called "battle fatigue" or "shell shock" is, in fact, a serious problem. UK forces have been involved in multiple conflicts recently and PTSD is, unfortunately, very prevalent among forces veterans. NB I have a special "Veterans' PTSD" rate.
More information from the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
Many non-veterans, even children, can develop PTSD. They suffer the same flashbacks, hyper-vigilance and situation avoidance. This is the mind's reaction to any psychological shock. It is quite common for victims of bullying, or physical /sexual abuse to present these same symptoms.
Many health problems can be attributed to anxiety. Chronic anxiety creates a high level of stress within the body. These include gastric problems, tension headaches & migraines, high blood pressure, some skin conditions associated with stress.
Anxiety Fife Hypnotherapy is a terrible affliction that can ruin someone's life. It is often accompanied by Anxiety Fife Hypnotherapy that can strike almost anytime. Anxiety and panic attacks occur more often when someone is travelling away from home, and can reduce when returning. I see many people who are anxious about having Anxiety Fife Hypnotherapy or panic attacks whilst driving.
There are a number of factors involved in Anxiety Fife Hypnotherapy treatment:-
IVF treatment can be very difficult and stressful. For more information, click Hypnotherapy and IVF Stress.
Many people feel excessive grief and anxiety after the loss of a loved one, or following the breakup of a relationship. Grieving is a process that takes time, (often more than family or friends think is reasonable). In the beginning, friends are supportive, however, after a few months they start to complain that you're not "moving on". The process really does stall sometimes and sufferers simply can't "move on". That's when Hypnotherapy can help.
It is not uncommon for people to grieve for someone who treated them badly! Friends find this particularly difficult to understand. E.g., friends can't feel sympathy for someone grieving for an ex-partner who was violent or abusive.
