Nicole Valens, hypnotherapist and counsellor at Stepping Stones

We have all experienced a level of anxiety in our life at some point. Feeling anxious at times is quite normal, but some people find it hard to control their worries and anxieties. 


Maybe you are one of the many people who suffer with panic attacks, heart palpitations, tight chest, or nausea. You may feel frequently on edge, easily startled, irritable or tired. Maybe this has had a knock on effect on your self-esteem and confidence. Or maybe you suffer with phobias, or feel overwhelmed by simple tasks.


All of these are common symptoms of anxiety. And for some people, this has a huge impact on their lives, and can get in the way of work, relationships or socialising.  Anxiety is often triggered and fuelled by negative thinking, maybe about the past or worries about what might happen in the future, or perhaps thoughts about our inability to cope with situations. 

Anxiety Treatment

We will help  you gain control of your anxiety so you can enjoy life to the full


How can we help?

Imagine living your life free of all of these symptoms! Because hypnotherapy helps to break cycle of negative thinking, you start to focus on the positive aspects of your life. Hypnotherapy decreases the levels of stress hormones in your brain and reduces your anxiety. You will see an improvement in your symptoms and have more control over your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. You will feel more empowered to deal with any situation life has in store for you.


Through hypnotherapy, we have helped many people to overcome their anxiety, enabling them to enjoy their lives more fully. Have a look at our review page to read some of their stories.
