Panic & Anxieties

Stepping Stones therapists provide counselling and hypnotherapy in Billericay, Wickford, Southend and surrounding areas of Essex. We specialise in a number of ares listed below:

Panic & Anxiety Attacks

By using hypnotherapy, you will be able to replace your body’s response to seemingly frightening situations.

You will be able to relax when you are in the middle of a panic attack. Stop the thoughts that produced the attack and replace the catastrophic thoughts with positive coping statements and allow yourself to feel and accept all the physical sensations that accompany the attack.

You will hopefully no longer have to avoid situations, people or things that trigger your anxiety, such as driving on a motorway, eating in public, crowds or flying in an aeroplane, as you will be able to cope and control your feelings of fear, you can go wherever you want to go and do what ever you want to do, which up until now you have not been able to do.

Panic and Anxiety can be triggered by a number of different situation situations or events, such as:

  • fear of flying,
  • going in lifts
  • travelling on the underground,
  • general anxiousness
  • Presentations
  • Weddings
  • Performing arts
  • driving
  • relationships with loved ones

Hypnotherapy has proven effective when dealing with anxiety, stress and panic attacks, helping you cope with specific symptoms using the power of suggestion, while helping you overcome limiting beliefs.

In some cases an intense feeling and the associated symptoms can occur for seemingly no reason. This is known as a panic attack which can be quite frightening. For some who have a panic disorder however, it is a common occurrence.

Hypnotherapy can be very useful when managing a panic disorder, this is because it can teach you relaxation techniques you can practice on a daily basis, helping you to reduce your general anxiety.

Hypnotherapy can also be used to overcome negative thinking and boost self-esteem. Having low self-esteem and thinking negatively may well be contributing to your panic attacks, so addressing this behaviour can be very helpful.

What others say!

"I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Elizabeth. I received a very quick response to my message when I initially contacted her and without any fuss I was booked in and within a few days I experienced a very professional introduction to hypnotherapy!
Elizabeth was very Covid aware and the session was in a completely safe, comfortable and professional environment!
The sessions have helped me tremendously and I feel the need to keep ‘dipping my toe in the water’, so to speak, as every session has a truly beneficial effect
Elizabeth has a totally professional approach, is friendly and treats her clients with great confidentiality! Her prices are extremely reasonable , her premises are comfortable..... all in all, highly recommended!!
Thank you, Elizabeth, I don’t intend to stop my hypnotherapy, just yet!!"

Anne Davey

"After years of diets, including weight watchers and slimming world I would only lose 3-4 pounds then as soon as I stopped dieting the weight would go straight back on. I used food as a comfort when I was stressed and could not say “no” to food. I had to eat everything on my diner plate.

After six sessions of hypnotherapy with Liz for weight control I started to view food differently and my eating patterns changed. Consequently I started to lose weight steadily I have lost a stone, dropped a dress size and the weight has stayed off ( for the first time ever). Following the sessions I felt calmer, more relaxed and positive within myself as well. I really enjoyed the experience. Thank you Liz“

Mrs D .Benfleet

"I suddenly started to suffer panic attacks and a great fear of being sick especially when eating in restaurants and in public.. Consequently I stopped going out and started eating on my own at home. I was becoming isolated and and frustrated with the problem.

Once the cause was found and talked about , I was taught new ways of dealing with the problem, I improved. I had three sessions with Liz, I can now eat in restaurants without the fear of being sick and having no more panic attacks. I am really please and amazed with results of hypnotherapy"

What is Hypnotherapy?

It is not what you see on stage shows….but that it is a completely natural phenomenon which is drug free and non- addictive. It is a state which is self-induced assisted by the directions of the hypnotherapist. While in a state of hypnosis you are neither asleep nor unconscious, and you are fully aware of what is happening. The technique is a way of getting through to the subconscious mind and re-programming it. The subconscious mind influences our everyday experiences and a lot of memories, good and bad are stored there, even though we are not aware of these memories, which in turn, can affect our everyday lives, even though we are not aware that the subconscious is controlling us. Most sessions are carried out weekly over a four to six week period for the best results. Except quit smoking, this is usually a one off session, lasting a couple of hours.
