Stop Skin Problems

Do you find your skin problems getting worse when your anxiety increases?


Have you tried many treatments but can’t seem to find a ‘cure’?

Many skin problems flare up during times of high anxiety. As our anxiety goes up, our body responds in many subconscious, primitive ways, designed to keep us alive and safe. Even when we enter a low level ‘fight or flight’ response our blood is diverted away from the skin and into our muscles – without this necessary blood, our skin can’t grow and repair.

It is easy to enter into a vicious anxiety cycle – our anxiety causes skin to flare-up, which creates more anxiety, which causes more skin problems. This is very common in conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Reduced blood flow to the hair follicles can also lead to hair loss and alopecia.

Here at Whitaker Hypnotherapy we work on addressing possible underlying triggers, as well as the skin problems themselves. We will address any self-esteem issues which may be leading to a constant underlying anxiety. Finally, we will look at any unconscious conditioning causing the problems and aim to replace them with more appropriate behaviours. The process of relaxing in hypnosis will bring on a parasympathetic nervous response, reducing levels of stress and anxiety, encouraging healthy blood flow to the requisite body parts.

Hypnotherapy can be effective in resolving many skin problems, including:

  • Eczema

  • Psoriasis

  • Alopecia

  • Warts & Verrucas

Please book a free initial consultation where we will discuss your particular condition and requirements.
