“Full Fledged Panic Attacks”
by Wanda Hazleton, Clinical Hypnotherapist
As a Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner, I have had the pleasure of witnessing many profound life changes among my clients.
Just one of many wonderful such cases was with a single mom of two; we’ll call her Mary. Mary came to me in utter desperation. She had been suffering for four long years with an intense phobia of driving on freeways.
Anytime she attempted to, (usually out of necessity), she would end up with a full fledged panic attack. Her heart would begin to race, her breathing would become way to fast and labored and her whole body would shake and break into a sweat! It was so bad, she’d have to pull over and call a friend or relative to come and pick her up!
She had been to multiple Dr’s, psychotherapist, psychologist, and most recently, a psychiatrist. She had been prescribed a variety of drugs including sleep aides, tranquilizers, anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs; NONE of which had helped one bit.
Through the use of Hypnotherapy and NLP, we were able to uncover the root cause of her phobia, clear it and then move forward into building and restoring self esteem and self confidence. She had felt helpless, overwhelmed and even “stupid” because of her driving phobia.
In just eight short weeks, she was completely free to drive anywhere, anytime she wanted. Not only was she thrilled, her friends and family couldn’t believe the difference in her. A couple of weeks after our sessions were completed she even decided to take a six hour road trip with her children. She called me when she got back to tell me how very excited she was to finally be free of any signs of anxieties.
