Anxiety and Stress Management Specialists

The Mindset Clinic in Watford, Hertfordshire specialise in the treatment of anxiety and stress.

“For nearly a decade I battled with anxiety. I wanted to understand how I wasn’t getting better. In my search for finding a way to manage my anxiety I discovered the techniques that I now use to help others. I was so amazed that I retrained and set up The Mindset Clinic. I know all too well what its like to suffer the debilitating effects of anxiety and my treatment plans are based upon what helped me and many others”.  Rebecca Sanderson

We can help you manage your anxiety – whether it be in relation to a specific upcoming event such as a driving test or if you are suffering regular occurrences, panic attacks and physical symptoms.

Most people experience slight feelings of anxiety and worry several times throughout their lifetime.  It’s normal. Feelings of worry and anxiety are perfectly typical reactions to the daily pressures of life. However we can help you if you feel particularly worried. For example you may be getting anxious about an exam, a job interview, or getting the results back from a medical test. Perhaps financial issues or concerns about a loved one becoming ill are troubling you. We can help you to feel more in control. For some people the feelings of worry or anxiety can start to become intrusive if they are affected on a daily basis and where the moments of anxiety start to dominate someone’s thoughts, actions or health.

Anxiety is thought to be the most common mental health problem in the western world. Twice as many women than men are affected and it’s most likely to occur to people in their 20’s. Unresolved it can lead to depression.

As a long-term condition anxiety can make you feel worried about a very wide range of issues, rather than your anxiety or fear relating to one specific issue.  You may find that you are anxious most days and may not be able to remember the last time you were able to properly relax. You may notice that you have become more serious and have stopped having fun. It may impact your sex life and your relationship with others as you snap more easily or get an increased sense of impatience.

Symptoms of anxiety are many and varied, for example:-

  • Feeling “on edge”
  • Restlessness
  • Sense of dread
  • Increased sensitivity to events on the news
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Irritability
  • Impatience
  • Being easily distracted
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Lethargy
  • Pins and needles
  • Numbness
  • Irregular heart beat (palpitations)
  • Heaviness in chest and difficulty breathing
  • Muscle aches
  • Dry mouth
  • Excessive sweating
  • Shortness of breath
  • Stomach ache
  • Headache
  • Diarrhoea
  • Excessive thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Painful or missed periods
  • Difficulty in falling, or staying, asleep
  • Hair loss
  • Dry eyes

Some people experience “panic attacks” which can feel very frightening indeed, with people often feeling like they are seriously ill, or about to die from a heart attack.

Anxiety can also be a symptom for many other conditions. For example, panic disorder, phobias, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and depression, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).  The content below will be equally relevant for someone who has one of these conditions, so please do contact us at The Mindset Clinic if you have any questions.

How Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Can Help Anxiety

Hypnosis in itself is wonderfully relaxing and reduces stress levels.

If you are suffering with mild anxiety that is related to a specific upcoming event, for example, giving a speech, sitting an exam, having an operation, then hypnotherapy will enable you to relax so that you feel more in control and reduce your sense of fear.

Hypnotherapy can help provide you with a greater sense of self; it can boost self-confidence and self-esteem and increase your self-belief. We will teach you how to have a strong visual image of yourself being calm and self-assured in your upcoming event.

At The Mindset Clinic in Watford, Herts we specialise in reducing stress and anxiety effectively and rapidly so you may only need a couple of sessions before your upcoming event to feel totally in control.

Generalised Anxiety Disorder

Perhaps you have been given a medical diagnosis of anxiety or Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) or you are experiencing anxiety as a result of Depression?  Maybe your anxiety is starting to effect the way you live your life?  Possibly you are experiencing panic attacks?  Perhaps you are worried all the time and just don’t understand why?  Or maybe you would like to feel less fearful about the future?  In these circumstances it is likely that you would benefit from a course of hypnotherapy and NLP. We do use CBT and Cognitive Hypnotherapy but find that it is more effective to use a hypnotherapeutic approach first to neutralise the underlying cause of the anxiety. Once this has been achieved then techniques can be taught to cognitively (or consciously) address the issue.
