Anxiety is a normal response that everybody experiences from time to time. Normal feelings of anxiety are what drive us to get things done. Different situations can trigger normal feelings of anxiety for example presenting in front of a large group for the first time, a job interview, learning to drive. Anxiety becomes a problem when it interferes with your daily life and functioning.
Symptoms of anxiety differ for everyone, common symptoms can be one or more of the following:
- Increased heart rate
- Tightness in the chest
- Sweaty palms
- Racing thoughts
- Shortness of breath
- Numbness and tingling in the hands
- Heart pulpitations
- Dry Mouth
- Sleeping problems
- Panic Attacks
Anxiety becomes a problem when: things in your life trigger anxiety that normally wouldn't, you feel anxious everyday, you avoid doing activities because of your anxious feelings and thoughts, the feelings of anxiety interfere with your daily functioning e.g. work, school, parenting, relationships.
There are many ways to manage and overcome anxiety and live a calm balanced life.
At Positive Pathways we use a range of techniques to teach you how to relax, reframe the feelings and reprogram your responses to situations so that you feel calm and in control. Some of the techniques used are:
- Breathing Techniques
- Relaxation Techniques
- Guided Imagery
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
- Behaviour Modification
Sessions are individualised to your personal situation, triggers and values. You will be taught strategies to deal with every day life and through hypnosis you will change your anxious patterns and beliefs that drive the anxiety response.
In general, you should expect 3 to 5 sessions to fully address your anxiety patterns and make long term positive changes.
I struggled for a long time with spells of anxiety and low self-worth, and without ever really understanding why I felt this way, I felt powerless to overcome these feelings and their impact on me. Hypnotherapy sessions with Diana allowed me to understand my anxiety and although I rarely experience these feelings anymore, I now have the self-awareness, confidence and strategies to deal with them when I do. Diana’s help has changed my life!

I came to see Diana because I was experiencing panic attacks that were taking over my life. I didn't know when I would get one and at the time it seemed like the weirdest things would trigger them. I had 4 sessions with Diana and learned life long tools to manage my anxious thoughts and feelings. During the sessions we uncovered the main situation that started the panic attacks and did this really cool technique that changed the way I felt about it. I'm happy to say that I haven't had a panic attack since our first session and feel confident and in control again.

We are lucky to live in a day and age where location is no longer a problem. I offer skype sessions from the comfort of your own home (I will help you to set it up of you don't have it). Therapy and hypnosis is just as effective done via Skype and many find it more convenient and comfortable. All you need is a computer with a good camera and a good wifi connection.
