Anxiety is a normal feeling of unease, such as worry or fear.

Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life – for example, you may feel worried or anxious about a job interview, an exam or visiting the doctor. During times like these, feeling anxious can be perfectly normal. However, some people find it hard to take charge of their anxiety or worry. Their feelings of anxiety are more constant and can often affect their daily lives. Anxiety can manifest itself in many ways, often catastrophic thoughts about future events that are unlikely to happen.

Anxiety is the main symptom of several conditions, including:

Panic attacks

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Phobias

Palpitations

Social Anxiety

 
 
 

Panic Attacks

 

Phobias

 

Stress relation conditions

 

What my clients say

Social anxiety disorder, also called social phobia, is an overwhelming fear of social situations.

It's a common problem that often starts during the teenage years but can affect anyone at any time, especially in today's current climate of online communication. For some people it gets better as they get older or over time but for many it doesn't go away on its own. Social anxiety often manifests itself in extreme anxiety around what other people may think about you - judging you adversely.

It can be very distressing and have a big impact on your life, NLP, Hypnotherapy and coaching are very effective in helping with this.

These can occur anywhere and over anything, going outside, busy places, driving, are but a few. Often showing up as shallow fast breathing, tightness in the chest, increased heart rate, sweating, nausea, feeling of panic, overwhelmed and not knowing what to do next.

 

Fears, often irrational especially of things that many other people are quite happy with such as spiders, flying, flying insects, needles, doctors.

 

A certain amount of stress can be good for us, keeping us sharp however not everyone benefits from this. Some people seem to thrive on stress but others it has a profound adverse effect. We are not designed to experience prolonged episodes of stress, the hormones released can have a neuro-physiological effect and often leads to ill-health.

 
“I contacted Nikki when my anxiety and panic started interfering with my everyday life. As soon as I met Nikki I felt instantly relaxed, she has such a calm and caring manner. Nikki helped me to look at my anxiety in a completely different way, I can’t believe one session had such a positive impact on my life and I can’t thank you enough. I highly recommend Nikki to anyone who needs a little help”

“I contacted Nikki to talk about my anxiety issues in regards to anything medical. Needles, x rays, scans, etc. Nikki listened to my concerns as to how it’s held me back in situations and quickly and professionally assessed the best help for me to achieve my goal of having no anxiety in these areas. And also my want not to pass these “issues” onto my kids.
I am ecstatic to report that after one session, I can confidently read things now that can graphically describe medical “stuff” and am confident that my anxiety will not be there the next time I attend a flu jab or have my blood pressure taken.
Thanks so much Nikki! X”
