Panic attacks can feel as though they’re occurring spontaneously, without any thought or trigger behind them.
It is important to note you very rarely experience a pure feeling without any thought triggering those emotions.
We can help identify and change those thoughts, which add to your disturbed feelings. During hypnotherapy, we can deal with the emotional aspect, so you begin to relate feelings of relaxation to those times where you used to feel anxious.
When you experience a panic attack, it’s because it is due to a natural response of fight or flight. Whenever you are in a new environment or sense any danger, the emotional part of your brain kicks in. Its primary objective is to keep us safe, which is perfectly fine and normal for us, but when you relate those feelings to situations such as giving a presentation or going to see the dentist, it is working falsely and irrationally. During hypnotherapy, we can quickly eliminate this response.
When you have been dealing with panic attacks for so long, you can develop what is called a secondary disturbance, this is when you experience anxiety about anxiety, which contributes to those intense feelings. If you are worried about the potential of having a panic attack you increase its power. We help prepare for this by learning what the triggers are that cause those initial thoughts and feelings, we work at reducing those responses.
Symptoms of a panic attack include:
Rapid, irregular heartbeats
A specific plan is tailored to each person by one of our therapists, to help them achieve their goals and to prepare for any issues along the way.
We easily identify any issues by using evidence-based procedures to help assess and build a strategic plan for success.
Case formulation (understanding of issues) is a very important part of any successful therapy. “A problem well defined is a problem halved.”

Hypnotherapy uses the hypnotic state to work with you to make a change, that you believe will help you live your life in a more meaningful way.
By combining therapy and hypnosis your ability to receive and act on suggestions can be enhanced and strengthened, therefore the change you desire more likely to be achieved.

I walked in a broken man due to anxiety, severe panic attacks, uncontrollable stress levels and powerful overthinking. I had 5 sessions with Clare and followed the recordings she sent me each week – I did them morning and night without fail and sometimes during the day too. After 5 sessions, I walked away a different person, more at ease, happier and finally remembered what a smile felt like. Even a member of staff in the office I only had brief encounters with noticed the change in me on week 4.
In the 1st session my brain was fighting the hypnotherapy, I was struggling to relax and let myself go. After the 1st session I would say it’s important to practice the recordings Clare will give you and as time goes on you will be a lot more at ease and start to look forward to doing them. I would strongly recommend using Clare for any problems you are having.

I signed up for hypnotherapy after suffering for years from stress and anxiety. I would never fully commit to anything as I was afraid it would raise my anxiety levels and I would have a panic attack. Linda and her team have worked miracles. I am so much more confident and no longer feel I need to hold back in any area of my life.
Since seeing Linda she has helped me feel more confident in myself and I’m feeling less stressed from work. My panic attacks have completely stopped and I’m very motivated in my personal life.
