Anxiety Fife, Panic Attacks, Phobias & PTSD Anxieties & Phobias

Anxiety Fife is the most common problem I see. Anxiety Fife comes in various guises, including Panic Attacks Fife and Phobias Fife. This can range from sudden panic Panic Attack attacks in Fife, to a constant feeling of danger or hyper-vigilance. Panic attacks Fife can be sparked by certain situations, such as having to drive across a bridge.  Plus, of course, there are a myriad of phobias Fife. Even with phobias Dunfermline though, everyone's problem is unique to them. Google says I have to add a disclaimer here because, unfortunately, it doesn't always help. Please don't expect a miracle cure for your Anxiety Fife or phobia Kirkcaldy: 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.

Fears & Phobias

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.

PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Another major form of anxiety in Fife is PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). It's a profound anxiety which Anxiety Fife PTSD Soldier - Hypnotherapy 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.

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.

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:-

  • SUGGESTION. People tend to accept suggestions in hypnosis. This is the easy part and many therapists don't do anything else. Suggestions DO work but they often wear off after a few days or weeks.
  • HABIT. Some people automatically expect to panic - because "that's what I do". I teach you how to perform a simple movement that instantly relaxes you.
  • DEALING WITH THE PAST. We all have things in our past that we haven't dealt with. These are often big events, but can also be bizarrely small. They all have an effect on how we feel NOW. Using Hypnotherapy, I help you to finally deal with these events, and so to move on. The result is that you feel very relaxed and good about yourself, as well as getting control of your anxiety. This is the most important aspect of treatment. There is a reason why you can't simply, for example, stop these feelings by yourself. Let's fix it.

IVF Stress

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.
