Asthma is a chronic disease affecting the airways carrying air in and out of your lungs. During an asthma attack inflammation of the airways makes the them constrict and produce extra mucus, reacting strongly to a variety of triggers, such as smoke, pollution and allergens, and causing symptoms such as wheezing, coughing and tightening sensations in the chest cavity, particularly at night. Symptoms are exacerbated by anxiety.
There is currently no cure for Asthma but most sufferers can control their symptoms to an extent that enables them to function.
In acute asthma attacks, the airways can constrict so severely that oxygen is prevented from reaching vital organs.
As relaxation is an intrinsic part of any hypnotherapy session, asthma symptoms can be reduced using a variety of hypnotherapeutic techniques, including Self-Hypnosis and Autogenic Training, taught, free of charge, to all clients wishing to empower themselves. Practising this wonderful skill enables rapid long-lasting achievement of desired results.
Techniques that may be used in your therapy session
Sessions will be personally tailored to your individual circumstances and may include:
• Talking therapy
• Clinical Hypnosis / Traditional Hypnotherapy
• Relaxing visualisations
• Desensitisation to triggers
• Autogenic Training
All of these techniques have proved to be very effective in achieving long-term change.
Besides being very relaxing, hypnotherapeutic techniques can effectively help clients to conquer their anxiety and regain control of their thoughts, feelings and behaviour, also having a knock-on effect on their physiology.
Effective Self-Hypnosis and Autogenic Training will be taught, free of charge, to all clients wishing to empower themselves.

Self-hypnosis for anxiety associated with severe asthma: a case report
By using self-hypnosis, the patient was able to reduce her dependence on bronchodilators. Following modification of her medical therapy under supervision of the pulmonologist, and regular use of hypnosis, the patient ultimately was weaned off her systemic steroid therapy…. Self-hypnosis can be a useful skill in the treatment of a patient with anxiety and asthma.
