Anxiety review for Hypnotherapy
I first Met Tim in June 2006. My reason for consulting him was very simple, I was suffering from severe anxiety which was beginning to take over my life. This had probably been affecting me for some time, but had become acute over a 6-12 month period without me realising. I had until this time been a self-confident, well-adjusted person, with a busy management career and a regular family life.
All aspects of my life were being affected by the sudden onset of anxiety. I would wake up in the morning with a feeling of impending dread about having to face the day. I was so anxious by the time I got behind the wheel of the car that I almost froze. On a number of occasions, I actually stopped the car and could not drive again until I had calmed myself down.
I now believe I was on the way to becoming agoraphobic, as I could not step outside the house without becoming dizzy and disoriented, with blurred vision. This I believe was all due to anxiety attacks.
Almost as an act of desperation, I contacted Tim, whose advert I had spotted in a local free journal. Believe me it took some bottle at the time as I was so nervous I could hardly pick up the phone.
