“Anxious Sharon is now firmly in the past, thanks Paul!”  
Sharon – Portslade

Paul not only helped me change my anxiety, he inspired me to do the same for others too with a career change.  Never been happier.”
Shane – NYC

“I went to see Paul after long periods of anxiety & depression and a constant feeling that things were never going to get better in my life. I was not happy with where I was living, my job, my prospects and indeed I was looking to move abroad to run away from the reality I found myself in.  Paul is a genius at what he does and tailored all sessions to how I was feeling and the stage of development I was at, using a variety of different techniques to have maximum effect. My mental well being has improved beyond measure…I  now love my city, I love my job and I have even applied to do a MA next year which I definitely wouldn’t  have done had I not been to see Paul. His professionalism, talent and commitment to his clients are unquestioned and I would recommend his services to anyone who is finding life tough. Thank you for having such a profound effect on my life.”

Anxiety Therapy – Brighton and Hove

Anxiety Therapy and Coaching sessions are available online and in person at my Brighton and Hove office. If you would like a free first consultation or have any questions then please contact me here.

I specialise in treating Anxiety Disorders and have created a very effective personalised Anxiety Therapy Program which can start to help you feel more relaxed and confident again.

Blend of Therapies

Cognitive Hypnotherapy can be very effective for anxiety but doesn’t suit everyone. This is why when it comes to anxiety disorders I use an intuitive blend of therapies and influences including Mindfulness, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy), IEMT (Integral Eye Movement Therapy) and Coaching depending on your needs.

The Four Areas 

There are four areas which have an impact on anxiety disorders and together we will explore these to get an insight into your anxiety so we can treat it in the most effective way

  • Lifestyle
  • Mental
  • Physical
  • Medical

It’s a very pro-active program which can help you work with anxiety issues in a healthier and more effective way.  My Anxiety Therapy sessions are available online or in my Brighton and Hove office. Contact me here to find out more.

Personal Note

On a personal note, I used to suffer badly with anxiety and back then fruitlessly failed at trying to get rid of it.  It was only when I began to treat my anxiety as a physical condition and not just a mental state that everything changed.  A few decades later and I now have a program which is more effective and finely tuned into helping people move on from an overly anxious mind.



What is Anxiety?

Anxiety  = Feeling tense, fearful and worrying from an over-alert, strained and “injured” limbic and nervous system.

Anxiety can cause:

  • IBS
  • Confidence and Self-Esteem issues
  • Social Anxiety
  • Negative Thoughts
  • OCD
  • Procrastination / Laziness
  • Sexual issues such as Erectile Dysfunction
  • Phobias
  • Anger issues

The Brain Bit

Your limbic system which includes the amygdala is known as the part of the brain which forms your survival and emotional centre.  If your limbic system is injured from too much pressure, trauma, lifestyle choices, illness or long periods of stress it can create an injury which results in feeling anxious, overly aware and too self-conscious.

Neuroscience is leading the way in proving anxiety and depression are physical injuries and not just a state of mind which can be changed by thinking differently.

Chemistry Struggle

The injury causes the limbic system to struggle with the chemistry which helps you feel more motivated, relaxed and confident and these are dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin. Without these, in balance, the world can seem much darker and frightening than it is and can make you feel anxious, depressed, low in confidence and self-esteem.

Prolonged anxiety can lead to depression so it really is worth getting help as soon as you can.

Physio for the Brain

Treating the injury is incredibly easy to learn and it’s such simple stuff too helps change your brain patterns for you to feel naturally more confident and relaxed with life.

This is just like having physio for the brain which I believe is the most effective way to deal with a physical injury such as anxiety or depression.  You wouldn’t think your way out of a strained muscle so why would you try to that with a brain injury?

All the information you need is sent to you so you can practise what you learn to heal and take control of your anxiety.
