Let go of anxiety

Does it feel as if you’re always anxious about something, as if the anxiety never really goes away and it just lingers in the back of your mind?

You are not alone. In 2013, there were 8.2 million reported cases of anxiety in the UK (nopanic.org.uk).

It’s completely normal and healthy to feel anxious occasionally. But it becomes a problem when you’re unable to let go of the anxious feelings and it’s preventing you from living a carefree life.

Start living a fulfilling, joyful, and carefree life by letting go of your anxiety. Gain the confidence, resilience, and emotional strength that you deserve.

“Anxiety is the handmaiden of contemporary ambition”

Alain de Botton

What are the symptoms?

You can experience some or all these symptoms every day to a certain extent, without it becoming a problem.
Sometimes, however, the duration and the severity of the anxiety can seem out of proportion. And it gets problematic when this feeling starts preventing you from living your life.


Restlessness, and a feeling of being “on-edge”


Uncontrollable feelings of worry


Increased irritability


Concentration difficulties


Sleep difficulties, such as problems in falling or staying asleep

Types of anxiety

Because anxiety is so common, we are able class them into several types. These are the ones most treated at Hypnosis with Nellie.


Generalised anxiety disorder:

This is the most common anxiety disorder. It involves excessive, long-lasting anxiety, and worries about life events, objects, and situations. You might not always be aware of the cause of your anxiety.



A fear and avoidance of places or situations from which it may be difficult to escape. This condition is often misunderstood to be a phobia of open spaces and the outdoors, but it is not so simple. It can be associated with a fear of leaving home, elevators, or even using public transport.


Specific phobia:

An irrational fear and avoidance of a particular object or situation.


Social anxiety:

This is a fear of judgment from others in social situations. Social anxiety can cover a range of things, such as stage fright, a fear of intimacy, and anxiety around humiliation and rejection. It can cause you to avoid public situations and human contact to the point that everyday life becomes extremely difficult.


Panic attacks:

Panic attacks are brief or sudden attacks of intense terror. It could even feel as if you are having a heart attack. Panic attacks can come on quickly and usually only last a few minutes.


Separation anxiety:

High levels of anxiety after separation from a person or place that provides security or safety.

What causes anxiety?

The cause of your anxiety can be complicated. Sometimes you’ll instantly be aware of the reason you’re feeling anxious. However, there can be moments the cause of your anxiety is not so clear. Often, it’s a combination of factors.

Possible causes include:


Environmental stressors, such as difficulties at work, relationship problems, or family issues


Genetics, as people who have family members that suffer from anxiety are more likely to experience one themselves


Medical factors, such as the symptoms of a different disease, the effects of a medication, or the stress of an intensive surgery or prolonged recovery


Withdrawal from alcohol or drugs, the effects of which might intensify the impact of other possible causes
