Hypnotherapy for Anxiety Rochester NY

 Let us start by saying that Anxiety Attacks and Panic Attacks are not the self-same thing.
Social anxiety is the third largest mental health problem in the world today.

Hypnoanalysis; has proved time and again to be very effective in removing the underlying causes of social anxiety disorders.
Lacking self-confidence is a very natural thing. We all go through it at some point.

Is there someone out there who you would like to ask out but are too shy to do so? The pain of rejection is so strong you just can’t do it. There again, what if you will never get this opportunity again, wow a double whammy! The moment you walked up to this person you started to live, your confidence grew. For you have stepped out of your comfort zone, where its all nice and safe and cozy! It’s a nice place to be, right? But its not living. Okay, he or she may be out of your league, but who put them there? You did, so stop it and get out of your own way.

We all know what anxiety feels like. Our heart pounds as if it’s going to jump out of your chest. Others get butterflies in their stomach, dry mouth and a restless kind of feeling. Worrying excessively over exams, blind dates, bills, giving a speech at a wedding or going for a job interview!

As you can see – the difference between an anxiety attack and a panic attack is clear, an anxiety attack comes from within, from your subconscious mind, where a panic attack comes from your conscious mind, from those things you constantly excessively worry about!
