Treating Anxiety for Emiratis and Expats in Dubai and Abu Dhabi
Anxiety, panic attacks and disorders like agoraphobia are all fear based challenges. And without a doubt, these issues are on a steady rise in today’s hectic society. The fear one feels when they have agoraphobia can make a person feel out of control, trapped, embarrassed and helpless. When this occurs anxiety strikes and the feelings can intensify into massive panic attacks.
Where does anxiety come from?
The anxiety that one experiences with agoraphobia is caused by fear. A person may perceive that there is no escape from the situation they are in. The fear can also arise from anticipated fear. Just thinking about public speaking may strike terror in a business woman. Just the thought of flying in an airplane might increase the heart rate of an adult man. The mind’s eye can make even the simplest situation seem like the scariest event.
Imagination at play.
How is it that a single thought can cause us to sweat, have dry mouth, blush, experience rapid heart rate and leave us tongue tied?
As analytical adults, we may be more creative and imaginative then we think. With anxiety and stress often comes fear. Fear stems from the mind and how it perceived a past event. For example a small child may have been teased in front of his classmates by a teacher. This could lead to the adult having a fear of public speaking. As an adult he slips into his imagination (the subconscious mind). Once in his mind he begins creating stories of how the situation may go. He may see himself being judged by peers In the audience. He may feel others don’t like what he is saying and that he might forget the words, freeze and look like a fool. Obviously for this person anxiety, panic and fear overcome him. This makes the person want to avoid any situation making him feel this way. But it was just a story in his head, based on events from the past, and how he perceived them as his child self. Because of this he might miss out on a promotion at work or lose respect from friends and colleagues.
There is no need to avoid situations in life because you are scared of panic and anxiety.
Nevertheless, as one’s anxieties increase, their state of health decreases. There is no need to avoid situations in life because you are scared of panic and anxiety. You can leave home happy, calm and peaceful. You can stand on stage and speak with ease and assurance in front of an audience. You can confidently mingle with new people at parties and face life’s challenges with a healthier mind.
How does anxiety treatment work?
Traditional treatment for anxiety, panic attacks and agoraphobia can be challenging and may take a long time. With traditional psychotherapy, therapists may have you face your fear and sometimes take medication.
Regress back to the initial sensitizing event that caused your fear in the first place.
However, with hypnotherapy, you can overcome your fears, phobias and anxieties more easily and naturally. With the tools of hypnosis you regress back to the initial sensitizing event that caused your fear in the first place. In a comfortable setting you are able to see from a new perspective how the event happened and why it made you feel a certain way.
For example, let’s go back to the child being teased by the teacher. As an adult viewing this situation he will think differently. He will see that the teacher was unprofessional and that the thoughts of the other children were to be of no concern. When we see things from a new perspective and program the mind to always think from the new, healthy viewpoint then we can overcome our limitations.
With the proper techniques, a hypnotherapist can program your subconscious mind to always see what used to be considered scary situations as happy situations.
