Anxiety Stress and Panic Attacks

Everyone will experience feelings of anxiety and worry many times throughout their lifetime.  For example, you may feel worried or anxious about a job interview, getting the results from a medical test, financial issues or even getting married.  Feelings of worry and anxiety are perfectly normal reactions to the daily pressures of life.  However, for some people, these feelings of worry or anxiety can become intrusive in their lives, and may begin to affect them on a daily basis.   The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major effect on our lives. Many of us are facing challenges that can be stressful, overwhelming, and cause strong emotions in adults and children.  I am currently working with so many teenagers and  youngadults who are struggling to cope.  Public health actions, such as social distancing, are necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19, but they can make us feellonely,  isolated and scared of the outside world.  Theyhave learnt to feel helpless which  can increase stress and anxiety. Learning to cope with stress in a healthy way will make you, the people you care about, and those around you become more resilient.  I can definitely retrain you out of this behaviour with my beliefs programme in 7 sessions.  (click on link) In no time at all I promise  you can have the best life, calm happy and in control.


Stress can cause the following:

  • Feelings of fear, anger, sadness, worry, numbness, or frustration

  • Changes in appetite, energy, desires,

  • Difficulty concentrating and making decisions

  • Difficulty sleeping or nightmares

  • Physical reactions, such as headaches, body pains, stomach problems, and skin rashes

  • Worsening of chronic health problems

  • Worsening of mental health conditions

  • Increased use of tobacco, alcohol, and other substances Feeling ‘on edge’

  • Restlessness, impatience, easily distracted

  • Sense of dread

  • Difficulty concentrating,

  • Dizziness, headaches, migraines, pin and needles

  • Lethargy and feeling exhausted

  • Irregular heart beat (palpitations), shortness of breath

  • Dry mouth, excessive thirst, excessive sweating

  • Diarrhoea, frequent urination


Some people experience ‘panic attacks’ which can feel very frightening indeed, with people often describing how they thought they were going to die, usually of a heart attack.
There are also many diagnosable conditions for which anxiety is the main symptom. For example, panic disorder, phobias, PTSD and generalised anxiety disorder.  The content on this page will be equally relevant for someone who has one of these conditions, so please do contact me on

If you are suffering with mild anxiety that is related to a specific upcoming event, for example, if you are due to sit an examination or are due to have an operation, then
hypnosis combined with suggestion therapy will enable you to reduce your worry or anxiety and to feel more in control.
This quick form of  treatment will provide you with a greater sense of self; it will boost self-confidence and self-esteem; it will help you build on your self-belief and you will have a strong visual image of yourself being calm and self-assured in your upcoming event.
Here at Epping Hypnotherapy I  have substantial experience of helping people to reduce their worries and anxieties in relation to specific events, and you would need just one session a week or two before the event in question.


Since our session on Sunday, I’ve dealt with a lot of things and I’m feeling fantastic about everything (including mannequins!) now that I’ve had the chance to talk to a few people and get a lot of things out of my system. I want to thank you so much – I’m sure you know how bad I am at showing and dealing with emotion, and the fact that you were so understanding and helpful combined with the hypnotherapy itself gave me a really safe space to let out a few things that have been bottled up for a long time! If it hadn’t been for your encouragement I wouldn’t have ever got this far. You have been truly amazing. I’ll stay in touch and let you know how things are going (I’ll send photos if I ever decide to visit Madame Tussauds!)   Lots of love,
