​Treated issues



My aim is to help you alleviate your problem.  It is difficult to predefine a therapeutic strategy as each client is unique and therefore therapy is individually tailored and may differ from what is indicated below. To paraphrase the late, Milton Erickson, “There are as many therapies as there

are clients.”



Not all the issues which can be treated are listed below. It is purely a general list of therapies.

You can contact me concerning your issue or problem by e-mail on renata@therapystepbystep.com

We can then arrange an initial free consultation to see if hypnotherapy or hypnoanalysis will suit your requirements.

 

General Anxiety Disorder



Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) can be defined as a disorder in which the sufferer feels in a constant state of high anxiety.  This anxiety can be characterised as an excessive, uncontrollable and often irrational worry about daily issues. When the anxiety is constantly in the background, for no apparent reason, Sigmund Freud referred to it as ‘free floating anxiety’; it does not matter whether we know why we have it or not, it is debilitating and the sufferer wants to get rid of it. An example could be, worrying that a partner is delayed returning home from work by half an hour, instead of thinking that there is bad traffic or that they were simply held up at work by a colleague, the GAD sufferer may think that an accident has happened ‘catastrophising’ the issue.


GAD sufferers anticipate disaster and are overly concerned about everyday issues. This excessive worry can affect their daily lives, health, personal relationships and work.


We all worry about different issues on an almost daily basis. The difference with a GAD sufferer is that this worry is prolonged and may last as long as 6 months or more.


My methodology for GAD is a series of Hypnotherapy, WSN Plus and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy exercises which are effective in helping you to banish your anxiety.
