Anxiety, OCD & panic attacks


Anxiety is a common mental health concern characterized by feelings of unease, worry, and nervousness. It often manifests through physical symptoms such as tightness in the chest or stomach, rapid breathing, dry mouth, and difficulty thinking clearly. While some individuals experience anxiety in response to specific events, others may find no apparent trigger for their bouts of anxiety. When constant anxiety persists, it can significantly impact one's ability to enjoy life and engage in daily activities.

Panic Attacks

Panic attacks, a severe form of anxiety, are sudden and overwhelming episodes of intense fear accompanied by debilitating physical symptoms. These may include shortness of breath, accelerated heart rate, trembling, and a sense of impending doom. Panic attacks typically last between 5 to 20 minutes and can be extremely frightening for those who experience them.


Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is another manifestation of anxiety characterized by a cyclical pattern of obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours. Obsessions are intrusive and unwanted thoughts, images, or urges that trigger profound distress, while compulsions are repetitive behaviours or mental acts performed to alleviate the anxiety caused by the obsessions.

The Root Cause of Anxiety

Anxiety stems from the release of adrenaline in the body, triggered by the fight-or-flight response – a natural stress response mechanism. This response is activated when the body subconsciously perceives a threat, even if the threat is not genuine. The problem arises when the body becomes confused, releasing adrenaline inappropriately and leading to anxiety in situations that do not warrant such a response.

Effective Treatment Options

Hypnotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and PSYCH-K are powerful tools that can help alter the body's response to perceived threats and put an end to unnecessary adrenaline release. By addressing the subconscious mind, these techniques can eliminate anxiety at its root, empowering individuals to regain control over their lives and pursue their goals without the burden of constant worry. It's important to note that understanding the specific reasons behind subconscious stress is not necessary for these methods to be effective in creating positive change.

A Simple Tip to Manage Anxiety

It's helpful to remember that the brain relies on information from the senses to perceive the environment. By recognizing this, individuals can employ a simple yet effective strategy to reduce anxiety. For more information on this technique, please refer to our blog article [link to the article].
