Anxiety can become a real problem for teenagers and young adults who are still finding themselves and making a mark on the world. Hypnotherapy can aid them to regain control

According to the BBC, thousands of teenagers in England are being denied access to free mental health care because of cuts to funding. Figures from the Young Minds charity show that of the 51 local authorities that responded to the survey, 34 revealed they had cut their budget since 2010.

The findings show that whilst National Health Service funding has remained the same, cuts by local authorities mean services such as counselling and advice are being made unavailable for young adults and teenagers. This means that mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and anger issues are going unnoticed leaving some teenagers with nobody to talk to.

Anxiety can affect millions of teenagers and whilst counselling can help, complementary approaches like hypnotherapy can also be useful. A representative from the National Council for Hypnotherapy explained how hypnotherapy could help, ‘Anxiety can become a real problem for teenagers and young adults who are still finding themselves and making a mark on the world. Hypnotherapy can aid them to regain control of anxiety and teach them special tactics to control breathing and the ‘fight or flight’ feeling, which can be applied in any situation to relieve symptoms of anxiety or panic attacks.’

The National Council for Hypnotherapy continues to follow mental health related news and raise awareness of hypnotherapy.

NCH represents over 1800 hypnotherapy professionals within the UK and is committed to ensuring the highest possible professional standards amongst our members. Those looking for help with smoking, weight, anxiety, panic attacks, habits and phobias may be helped by local NCH accredited therapists, look for the NCH seal of approval on their websites. As one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists, the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) is actively involved with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and strives to develop standards for the benefit of the profession, now and into the future.
