Hypnotherapy can help to identify the root of the anxiety and teach the patient to control these feelings through specialist techniques and exercises

According to NewsFix, depression is not the only contributing factor to patients suffering from panic and anxiety disorders. A new study has revealed that the risk of suicide is also very high for those suffering from panic disorders like panic attacks. The small survey of 146 people with a panic disorder showed that 19 per cent had major depression with 43 per cent had suicidal thoughts. In comparison, only one in ten respondents who were not depressed were a suicide risk. Study findings concluded that the increased suicide risk was due to the increased level of depression.

One way to deal with anxiety and panic disorders is to use complementary therapies such as hypnotherapy, which has been linked to decreased levels of anxiety and panic for minor to moderate disorders. The National Council for Hypnotherapy is an online professional body for registered and qualified hypnotherapists throughout the UK. Members of the Council can be found by clients looking for hypnotherapist sessions to help with a range of problems including stopping smoking, weight loss and anxiety disorders.

A spokesperson for the National Council explained, ‘Anxiety can start a spiral of problems including depression which can then lead to suicidal thoughts and feelings. Hypnotherapy can help to identify the root of the anxiety and teach the patient to control these feelings through specialist techniques and exercises.’
