Using Hypnotherapy and CBT to manage anxiety and panic.

Anxiety and panic are distinct (though not necessarily unassociated) conditions.

Anxiety is generally a response to a perceived threat (which may be real and immediate, rather more distant or even non-existent). Panic attacks may be either expected (in response to some particular and previously identified trigger) or unexpected and with no obvious cause, and tend to come on very suddenly.

The encouraging news, however, is that both conditions can be treated with great success using Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).

How anxiety or panic may be affecting you.
Anxiety and panic dog many people’s lives, and it can feel as though the contributing factors are increasing week on week. There are certain symptoms of anxiety and panic that come up regularly amongst clients.
  • Feeling unable to relax at any time is very common with anxiety and panic. As well as being highly unsettling and causing extreme fatigue, this can be both concerning and irritating to family members, colleagues and friends.
  • Feeling that something bad is about to happen is another manifestation of anxiety I see often. The ‘something’ varies from existential fears about death or illness to far more prosaic worries about job security, financial security or even being liked. 
  • Being unable to sleep, or experiencing only very poor quality sleep, is also very often down to anxiety. The knock-on effects of poor sleep are significant, however, and may well compound the anxiety and sense of panic.

I cannot thank Paul enough for all that he has done for me over the past few years. He has helped me overcome obstacles that, at the time, seemed like mountains but calmly, mindfully and patiently we have worked through so much. 

My approach to helping manage anxiety and panic.
Anxiety and panic affect people in many different ways, and until I hear about your specific experience my mind is open as to precisely the best way to help. Having said this, the core therapies and tools that I work with all have a role to play in dealing with anxiety and panic.


Hypnotherapy is gentle and totally safe. You remain in control at all times. Yet it offers us a way to relax your subconscious mind and enable you to experience for yourself a way to create a state of calmness in the face of anxiety or panic.


By allowing us to work on modifying the patterns of thought you experience in certain situations, CBT is also helpful in very many cases in building an approach to managing anxiety.


I’ve found that learning to practice Mindfulness benefits lots of clients suffering anxiety and panic, providing a practical ‘mental maintenance’ tool you can use at any time to deal with unsettling thoughts and feelings.

I have been assisting clients in dealing with anxiety and panic since I began practicing in 2008. Having come to train as a therapist in mid-life following a long and often stressful career in business, I practice Hypnotherapy and CBT, and make use of Mindfulness, all of which approaches are relevant to treating these life-impairing conditions.
