Suffering From Panic Attacks?

At my Hypnotherapy practice I often see clients who have suffered with reoccurring panic attacks.

Panic attacks are very common and are a severe attack of anxiety caused by a real fear or a perceived one. Anxiety can have countless causes which are not always obvious. When they are first encountered they can be very distressing as symptoms can include chest pains and breathlessness.

­However panic attacks don’t actually harm you but they can be very distressing and if you don't do something about it you could become phobic to the panic attacks themselves.

Studies have found that difficult circumstances, or changes in life situations, such as an illness, loss of a loved one, relationship issues, demands of others, financial worries and family pressures can increase levels of stress. This may help fuel and cause a panic attack, due to the rush of adrenalin, heart rate increase and blood pressure rise.

For a lot of people panic attacks often come out of the blue for no known reason. Living with panic attacks can often causes ongoing worry and anxiety, as you don’t know when or where your next attack will happen. They can thereby reduce your confidence, as well as create further anxious feelings; this may eventually lead to depression due to the ongoing, persistent worrying.

Panic and anxiety attacks  can also effect those closest to you as you stop going out and doing the things you previously enjoyed. In a lifetime around 10% of  the population will have a panic attack of some degree.

Drugs are the main remedy given if medical intervention is sort out but that will just help to temporarily mask the symptoms.


I booked a session with Jo because my claustrophobia was getting worse and giving me a 'knot' of anxiety in my stomach that I struggled with on a daily basis. After my initial session with her, I felt so much better and that knot disappeared. On a motorbike trip, the next week I had a panic attack on the motorway - something that had never happened before. I used the techniques that Jo taught me and was able to manage my anxiety and get through the journey. In preparation for my return journey on the motorbike, I had another session with Jo specifically focusing on my journey home. It was superb. I was able to truly enjoy the 5 hour journey with no hint of anxiety and i'm excited about future travels on the bike. Highly recommend.


I have had a fear of water most of my life because of a drowning accident that befell a close relative of mine over 30 years ago. 3 years ago I decided to take swimming lessons to address the fear, I learned to swim but I was never fully relaxed in the water. I would have to stop to calm the panic in my chest after 3 lengths of the pool, my technique was fine, and I'm reasonably fit. I had a session with Jo 2 weeks ago to address my fear of water. The difference was noticeable from the first trip to the pool after the session. For the first time I felt completely relaxed which allowed me to slow my stroke down considerably which resulted in my not getting exhausted as quickly. Tonight, just 2 weeks on, I completed 20 lengths without taking a rest, this is something I have never ever achieved. For me hypnotherapy was a complete unknown but Jo made me feel at ease immediately and I knew I was in safe hands. I found the session very relaxing and every day I look forward to listening to the MP3 files she provided. I cannot recommend Jo highly enough, I had reached a point in my swimming that I thought I was just going to have to accept I would never be able to "do it properly" but now that's all changed. Thank you so much Jo.

Can Hypnosis For Panic Attacks Help?

Hypnosis for Panic Attacks could help you regain control of your life again. Hypnosis  works with you to help the unconscious mind make changes to your behaviour.  The aim is to reduce the impact of your panic attacks and to help you to remove them entirely.  By training you to respond more appropriately to scenarios that in the past may have caused anxiety and panic, this will help you to rebuild your self confidence; as well as give you back your freedom to enjoy your life.

Hypnotherapy has been shown to be very effective for those who suffer panic attacks. COGNITIVE HYPNOTHERAPY is even more potent as it will also combine combine CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and NLP helping your mind to think clearly and calmly, alleviating feelings of fear and panic and helping to remove the trigger of the anxiety and fear.

So instead of a future of fear, you could regain the confidence to lead a fulfilling life without restrictions. By altering habits within the subconscious mind, it really is possible to achieve almost anything.
