Hypnotherapy for Health and Covid-19 Anxiety. If you or a loved one is suffering, get in touch.
After the hardships of lockdown, although there has now been a welcome return to normality, the virus has left its mark in many different ways on the mental health of a great number of people.
Fears of infection, illness, bereavement, economic worries, hardships, and separation from family and friends have all left their mark and contributed to a huge rise in general health anxieties.
If you or a family member is suffering any kind of health and Covid-19 anxiety, get in touch.
How Health and Covid Anxiety may be affecting you.
The experience of the pandemic and the surrounding measures have resulted in a whole host of increased anxieties regarding our health. There has been a marked increase in fear of general health, with what might usually have been considered minor symptoms now being feared as the portent of something very serious or even fatal. There are many signs that you could be suffering from some measure of general health and Covid-19 anxiety:
- Constant and intense self-monitoring for symptoms
is a sign that health anxiety may begin to take over. This can take many forms but will commonly result in closely looking for marks on the skin, any internal pain or discomfort, or perhaps a cough or shortness of breath.
- Domestic confinement stress
the Covid lockdown has affected people of all ages and in all circumstances, and has often resulted in increased relationship tensions and conflict. There are also many people now fearing the outside world, with even the thought of venturing out sometimes inducing anxiety or panic.
- A fear that health care might not be easily obtained
and continued difficulties and restrictions in making GP appointments have also resulted in A & E services being overwhelmed. This, in turn, increases health anxiety, resulting in a hard-to-manage spiral of health anxiety.
- Anxiety about the future
appeared to be common. With employment, business, and educational opportunities being uncertain during the pandemic, and many households have used up savings during the lockdown, anxiety over short-, medium-, and long-term security is understandable.
I have really enjoyed our sessions and wanted you to know that you have helped
me to reach exactly where I wanted to be – to feel peaceful and content, and able
to feel and enjoy the fullness of life – from the easy moments to the challenging
ones…. 9 months ago I believed it was possible, but I did not realise it would feel
this good to be alive, and so quickly too.

Hypnotherapy can be a highly effective method in dealing with issues around all general health anxieties. First, I will help you understand how to create a state of calmness and control by learning the gentle and highly effective art of self-hypnosis.

CBT is a way of challenging the unhelpful patterns of thought you experience in certain situations. These thoughts might be a result of your fears or experience with symptoms (whether real or imagined), or on a fear of contamination. CBT is valuable in building a logical and powerful approach to managing your anxiety.

Paul Levrant. Hypnotherapy, CBT and Mindfulness to help manage Health Anxiety and Covid Anxiety.
I have been assisting clients with health anxiety and panic since I began practicing it in 2008. While Covid Anxiety stems from a new situation, there is nothing exceptional or new about general health anxiety and the fears and discomfort it engenders.
Having come to training as a therapist in mid-life, I practice Hypnotherapy, CBT, and Mindfulness, which are relevant to helping clients deal with the psychological impacts of medical and health anxiety fears created through the pandemic.
