Fears and Phobias and Anxiety Related Issues.



We all encounter a certain amount of stress in our lives which may be manageable but too much stress can have an adverse effect upon your health and well-being.


Using a combination of cutting edge techniques,  New Beginnings hypnotherapy can have a life changing effect on the way that you deal with challenging situations and how to face them with confidence.

To fully understand anxiety, first you need to understand the effects of stress and the 'fight or flight' response.



Stress can be caused by internal or external triggers. External triggers include work or family difficulties, traumatic events, financial or health troubles, and even just the build up of routine problems. Everyone will experience this kind of stress in their life. Problems pile up and we go through difficult times. Learning to manage stress effectively is a useful skill - one which will help at such times.


Internal triggers of stress are more problematic. Sometimes, the negative thoughts and feelings we can have, either relating to ourselves or to the events we face in life, cause a great deal of stress. These thoughts - our inner perception - will often reflect some kind of distorted thinking. For example, thinking in catastrophic terms, or with low confidence, or with excessive pessimism all create personal stress. Unchecked, these negative thoughts and feelings become entrenched, leading to difficulties in coping with everyday life.



Anxiety is the feeling of fear we have when the fight or flight response activates based on our perception at that time.  To put it simply F E A R = Future Events Appearing Real.


When negative thoughts and feelings (internal stress triggers) overwhelm us, we become increasingly anxious and afraid. Again, our heart rate increases, stress hormones are released, we sweat more, and our mouths become dry. Our stomachs churn or tingle, and we might feel shaky, hot and unsteady on our feet. Emotionally, we may become tense, agitated and afraid.


Our psychology also changes: our thoughts become all-or-nothing, irrational, and catastrophic. Simple truths become hard to grasp, and we can feel trapped.


Over time, anxiety becomes habitual; we automatically feel afraid in certain situations, and start to 'fear the fear'. We modify our behaviour in your hypnotherapy session to enhance your outcome. During your initial consultation we would look at your response to stress .Past experience, and self – limiting beliefs. During hypnotherapy we would use suggestions for change, enabling you to react more positively to the stress triggers, exchanging negative, self limiting behaviours for a more positive outcome. New Beginnings Clinical Hypnotherapy will help you to understand and control your anxiety and cope with challenging situations in a calm and effective way.

When I made the appointment with Sally I was desperate.  I was losing the confidence to go out socially and felt safer staying in at home most of the time.  I was having panic attacks and was so nervous when I had to leave my house that I wouldn’t go without my partner.  Sally has helped me so much.  She showed me ways to cope and as well as the hypnotherapy sessions, she gave me loads of useful information too, to read between sessions.  I feel like a different person now.  I have regained my confidence and my partner and friends can’t believe the difference in me.  Thank you Sally xx

Latest Testimonial

Stress and anxiety is present in most of our lives at some point, whether due to a bereavement, separation/divorce/moving home or any number of other triggers.For short periods of time we may be able to deal with it but unresolved stress can effect us both physically and psychologically. When the fight or flight response activates frequently, and for prolonged periods, we feel increasingly stressed. In short bursts, stress is helpful: it motivates us, and it's vital in dangerous situations. However, when stress spirals out of control people become overloaded and increasingly unable to cope. Awash with adrenaline, we struggle physically and our thoughts become frantic and irrational. Too much stress in life is very unhealthy.


When faced with a dangerous situation, your body prepares for immediate action. Adrenalin is released, increasing your heart rate so blood can be quickly pumped to your muscles.
