Removing panic attacks with hypnotherapy

To understand what triggers a panic attack, you need to know two things:

  • There is no effect without cause and something specific causes the panic attacks. There is always a reason for the triggering of panic attacks. Not knowing what causes the panic attacks makes them more alarming to whoever has the misfortune of experiencing them.

  • The subconscious mind is the protective mind and it will protect you against everything, real or imagined. If the subconscious mind imagines a threat that your conscious mind is unaware of it will trigger a “flight or fight” response to prepare your body to defend itself or to escape. It will do this consistently and with added vigour each time the imagined trigger is perceived.

Carl Gustav Jung, the famous psychologist said, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” This is certainly the case with regard to panic attacks until the subconscious cause has been revealed to the conscious mind and resolved.

A clinical hypnotherapist can help you to:

  • Identify the specific trigger in the subconscious mind that leads to the panic attacks. Knowing what causes the panic attacks and why they are caused will offer some relief and helps prevent the fight and flight response from escalating.

  • Show the subconscious mind that the trigger is not a threat. If the subconscious mind understands the trigger is not a threat, it will be motivated to change as the response is not helpful and consumes energy.

  • Teach the subconscious mind to not react defensively to the trigger. By doing so the trigger is dissolved and will not lead to further panic attacks.

This approach to removing panic attacks is very effective as it targets the cause of the panic attacks and resolves it instead of attempting to manage the symptoms - and it has no side effects.
