Hypnotherapy for panic attacks is a highly effective treatment, it re-balances the neuro-pathways in your brain, clearing your head of those intrusive, irrational thoughts, ensuring you are no longer in “fight or flight” mode, instead allowing you to work from your more logical and rational part of your mind, ultimately leaving you able to get on with life, calmly, confidently and positively.

Are panic attacks ruining your life?

Do you suffer with the following:

  • Intense fear or impending doom.
  • Rapid heartbeat and chest tightness.
  • Shortness of breath and difficulty breathing.
  • Sweating, trembling, and feeling lightheaded or dizzy.

Causing you to feel overwhelmed and fearful with simple tasks:

  • Avoidance of situations or places associated with previous panic attacks.
  • Social withdrawal and isolation to prevent potential triggers.
  • Limited daily activities and disruptions in work or school life.
  • Development of safety behaviours or rituals to cope with anxiety.

Imagine feeling like this:

  • Calm and confident.
  • Able to focus at work and enjoy it.
  • Enjoying social times with friends and family.
  • Knowing if a challenge arises it can be dealt with calmly and positively.

And I bet you have already tried to find a solution to your panic attacks and are still struggling…

  • You have been told to try deep breathing, but hey, that is a lot easier said than done when you are in the middle of a panic attack.
  • You may have been offered medication from the doctors, but you didn’t like the side effects.
  • You may have even tried counselling or CBT, but still not felt better.

How hypnosis for panic attacks works

Allow up to 1.5 hours
A standard hypnotherapy session is typically 1 hour, but I always allow 1½ hrs to ensure we have plenty of time and so that you don’t feel rushed.

Work in-person or remotely
In person work from my private secluded home address in Stow-on-the Wold. Or remotely via Zoom, you just need to have a quiet space to talk and that you can lay back and relax during trance.

First part of the session involves psychotherapy/talking therapy
My approach is primarily solution focused. I prioritise exploring how you would like to feel in the absence of panic attacks, emphasising forward-focused strategies. While occasional discussions about the past may occur, my main objective is to help you shift away from the problem and towards a more positive future.

Second part of the session involves trance
The second part of the session will involve trance which is a deep, relaxed state where your brain becomes highly receptive to positive suggestions. It resets neuro pathways allowing you to feel calm, relaxed and confident.

Ending the session
Feeling a little lighter, brighter and more relaxed than when you first walked in and able to maintain this positive feeling going forward.

Hello, I am Lisa, a qualified hypnotherapist and panic attack therapist. You can find out more about me here.

As your therapist, I work with you to help you gain control of your thoughts and emotions.

Negative thought patterns can send a message to your brain that you are in danger and it activates the “fight or flight” response to ensure you stay safe. This is self-limiting and can prevent you from achieving your full potential. By identifying and challenging negative thought patterns, we can learn to reframe our thoughts in a more positive and empowering way.

Combine this with hypnotic trance to access the subconscious mind, where the neuro pathways in the brain are re-balanced, clearing your head of those negative intrusive thoughts. No longer in “fight or flight”, but allowing you to work more logically and rationally, ultimately leaving you feeling calm, confident, and happy.

When calm and confident, you exude an aura of inner peace and self-assurance. You can feel comfortable in your own skin and approach life with a sense of purpose and direction.

You can have a sense of resilience, and setbacks can be seen as challenges that can be dealt with positively, calmly, and confidently.

It was getting to a point that it was affecting my business and I was struggling to cope, it would leave me feeling exhausted. My husband found Lisa online for me as a possible solution. Working with Lisa has been life changing! Results were pretty much instant, my anxiety has dramatically decreased and my confidence has grown. I am so impressed I can’t help but tell people about it. Lisa is brilliant at what she does, putting you at ease straight away, which takes any apprehension out of the process”.
