What is Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)?
People with GAD suffer from a constant feeling of anxiety and tension in relation to everyday events and problems.
It is normal to worry about certain situations: someone who works for a company that is underperforming maybe worries about the future of their job. However, people with GAD worry excessively, even if there is no particular danger. They could worry about their relatives that they could become seriously ill or have an accident (without a reason to think this). And they also have little or no control over their worries.
The diagnosis of “generalized anxiety disorder” applies when there is at least 6 months of concern and tension regarding everyday events and various physical and psychological symptoms, for example:
- Tingling in the stomach
- Fear of going crazy or dying
- Feeling hot or chilly
- Muscle tension
- Difficulty concentrating
- Falling asleep
Those affected often try to avoid triggers (such as reports of accidents) or try to reassure their relatives, for example, that they are well and that nothing will happen. As relatives often experience the worries as stressful, conflicts can arise.
Approximately 5 out of every 100 people suffer from GAD during their lifetime. While other anxiety disorders usually occur in adolescence or early adulthood, this is rather rare in generalized anxiety disorders. GAD often occurs for the first time between the ages of 35 and 45.
For those affected, it is necessary to develop a more positive-realistic attitude to life with hypnotherapy, without being constantly dominated by fears.
How can biodynamic hypnotherapy help with Generalized anxiety disorder?
Biodynamic hypnosis has a direct effect on the anxiety center and changes neural links in the brain through neuroplasticity.
This happens in a trance where the anxiety-provoking situations are being experienced over and over, in order to solve the blockages imaginatively – like “on the spot”. In addition to that, relaxation procedures and resource training cause the stimulus reactions to change so that a more relaxed life is possible,
During this process, the client will constantly feel safe and secure.
