Anxiety Disorder GAD

Some stress is common and healthy for all people. However, when stress increases in frequency and intensity, it may move out of a “safe” zone and quality of life can diminish. For some people, trauma can spawn a General Anxiety Disorder (GAD).

If you are often worried, carry lots of tension, experience panic attacks and find it difficult to get things done, you may have General Anxiety Disorder is often associated with other symptoms: depression, restlessness, difficult concentration, contractures, insomnia. . See your doctor and have this condition examined. A more thorough assessment can be carried out by a psychologist or psychiatrist.

If you have General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Hypnotherapy can be used as an effective complement to conventional treatments involving medications and traditional psychotherapy.

In hypnotherapy, we usually start very slowly. The first few sessions aim to experience a feeling of relaxation. This relaxed state will form the basis for many other activities such as:

  • Grounding techniques

  • Trauma resolution

  • Time-based modelling

  • Cognitive behaviour therapy

  • Other progressive approaches.

The client must learn ways to relax and feel safe. It’s also important for the client to practice these relaxation skills daily. At first, the client should practice at the same time and in the same environment. Eventually, the client should expand her practice to include a variety of different locations and situations. In time, confidence will build and new healthy patterns will develop.

Learning to relax is a skill. As a client builds this skill, a feeling of control leads to empowerment. Eventually, some self-determination will lead to a better quality of life. It’s a process and it will require practice on your own as well as practice with a therapist.
