​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.

 

Panic Attacks



Panic attacks are a more common presenting difficulty than most people imagine and sufferers are often told by those around them “Pull yourself together!”.  Panic attacks are debilitating, exhausting for the sufferer and those around them. 


There are two forms of panic attacks: Triggered and Random Panic attacks.


Random panic attacks occur at any time and without warning, while triggered panic attacks are set off by a recognisable, if not understood situation.  The symptoms may start with a minor ‘strange’ feeling almost anywhere in the body or a surging feeling over the whole body or in the chest.  Sometimes panic attacks are confused as heart attacks. ★


After each attack the sufferer begins to dread the next attack, resulting in a self-cycling phenomenon, which also affects their blood chemistry.


When it comes to a battle between imagination and willpower, imagination will always win!


My methodology for Panic Attacks involves uncovering techniques, especially ​Hypno-Psychotherapy. I also aim at helping the sufferer to understand the underlying symptoms and self-cycling nature of the debilitating attacks thereby enabling them to deal with their life.  In the case that the Panic Attack is a learned behaviour pattern and is a conditioned response, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy coping mechanisms can be taught to decondition the process.

Before seeking therapy, it is essential that you discuss your condition with your GP/Consultant so as to eliminate high blood pressure, and other medical possibilities, as a possible cause of your panic attacks.
