Every person feels nervous, especially in rough times. That makes the anxiety a normal thing among humans in hectic situations. If you feel worry or anxious in a limit and in tough conditions that is absolutely normal.
But here, we are talking about people with anxiety disorders. Those disorders or worries aren't momentary. And if not treated timely, the anxiety disorder can get worse with the passage of time.
Anxiety disorders can affect a person's ability to perform at work, home and in social gatherings. Anxiety can also severely impair your relationships. Luckily, though, there are therapies to treat the anxiety and they are effective.
Anxiety complaints are common in both children and adults. According to the National Institute of mental health, 18% of adults in the USA have anxiety disorders. And about 4% of adults have serious anxiety disorders. That’s why it becomes vital to treat it appropriately and timely.
Types of Anxiety Disorders
Before treating the anxiety, let’s check out some common types of anxiety disorders:
Generalized anxiety disorder
Generalized anxiety disorder includes insistent worries or feelings about anything. People suffering with it are worried or anxious about health or financial problems or they have a feeling that something worse can happen to them.
It includes regular panic attacks and the major symptoms are sweating, shortness of breath, trembling, or a pounding heart or fast heart rate. These attacks can happen anytime and people suffering from these disorders fear about what is next, which keeps them uneasy all the time.
Phobias are extreme fears about certain animals, things or any object such as lizard or snakes, or situations like flying in airplanes, swimming, or going in water. People suffering from Phobia find themselves distressing or unpleasant in those situations.
Social anxiety disorder
People suffering from this disorder become nervous or terrified in any social situations. They usually feel uneasy or tense while spending time in social gatherings. They like to remain alone and in most cases, their “bedroom” is their favourite place. Some other symptoms are no friends, worrying for days before any event and feeling nauseous when spending time in a social setting.
These are uncontrollable thoughts, obsessions, or rituals. Some common examples are: obsessive washing of face or hands because of germs fear, or repetitively checking tasks for mistakes or errors.

Hypnotherapy allows you to re-focus these automatic reactions and helps in replacing them with positive ways to think about them. In this way, it reduces stress or anxiety promptly.
Today, hypnotherapy for treating anxiety disorders is normal. More and more doctors and professionals are diagnosing hypnotherapy as a successful way to treat anxiety disorders. For instance, the British Psychological Society also recognizes hypnotherapy as a suitable option for treating anxiety.
