Hypnotherapy & Panic Attacks
Rational self-directed hypnotherapy treatment was used for a single-subject who suffered from panic attacks. Experienced symptoms ranged from acute fear and upset stomach, to loss of weight, appetite, and fear of going to work. Guided imagery through hypnosis was used to relive incidents where self-defeating behaviours and attitudes were present. The subject rehearsed these incidents and applied a revised response, resulting in greater sense of control, extinction of symptoms and cease of panic attacks.
