Hypnosis for Dizziness
Regain inner Balance

Dizziness and vertigo can have a variety of causes that sufferers are often unaware of. People who are affected by dizziness have often gone through an odyssey of medical examinations. In search of help, the desire to find a medical, physical cause can sometimes be great. But what if nothing can be found organically, physically, and the symptoms are still there? If this is what is happening to you, hypnosis can help you uncover and work through the reasons that are not obvious. Often the reasons for dizziness and vertigo lie deeper and are unconsciously maintained on a daily basis. Hypnosis allows direct access to deeper levels of consciousness, that which otherwise remains unconscious and hidden to us while awake. Hypnosis thus allows you to get the help you need to return to your inner balance and feel more secure in yourself and your own body again.

Dizziness Symptoms

So erkennen Sie psychisch bedingten Schwindel - ohne körperliche Ursache

Dizziness and vertigo can therefore also occur without any physical cause. This form of dizziness is called somatoform dizziness and is psychologically caused. Before the diagnosis of somatoform dizziness can be made, it has already been medically clarified that the organ of balance in the inner ear is intact and that there are no neurological disorders. Also organically everything was examined with the result that there is no cause which could be a trigger for the experienced dizziness. Physically and organically healthy people with the diagnosis of somatoform dizziness nevertheless experience dizziness again and again in their everyday life. The pressure of suffering is often very high, as is the helplessness about not getting help from conventional medicine. 
Physical symptoms of psychologically induced vertigo
In the case of somatoform vertigo, sufferers can experience all forms of dizziness. Most of those affected report dizziness or diffuse dizziness, a dizziness that is also known as anxiety dizziness. There are also those affected who suffer from rotary vertigo and elevator vertigo. Somatoform vertigo can present with other physical symptoms such as palpitations or tension, chest tightness, and feelings of lightheadedness. Some of those affected also report attacks of dizziness, which can escalate to a panic attacks.

Dizzy Facts

Every fourth person suffers from dizziness at some point in their life

Dizziness or vertigo describes the feeling that spatial orientation is disturbed or that the body or the environment cannot be properly perceived. Dizziness manifests itself as an uncomfortable feeling of spinning or swaying and can also be accompanied by fears such as fear of impending fainting. Because of dizziness, every 5th to 6th patient first consults a neurologist. Every fourth person suffers from dizziness at some point in their life. In order to find out how to classify the dizziness, a distinction is made between the type, the duration and the occurrence of the dizziness. There are different types of vertigo that occur in somatoform vertigo. Most of those affected by somatoform dizziness suffer from postural vertigo or diffuse dizziness, a drowsiness dizziness, which is also known as anxiety dizziness. There are also those affected who suffer from rotary vertigo and elevator vertigo.

Rotary Vertigo

Vertigo can be sudden or persistent. Seizures of vertigo come on suddenly and last from minutes to hours. This often leads to nausea. Persistent rotary vertigo lasts for several hours to days. For those affected, persistent rotary vertigo is particularly difficult to endure. Symptoms such as nausea and vomiting are common. Even if those affected lie down, they suffer from the symptoms, which intensify with movement.

Positional Vertigo

Positional vertigo occurs when the position of the head changes. The dizziness lasts only for a short time, but can be experienced as intense. For those affected, it feels as if their surroundings are spinning rapidly. Positional vertigo is often accompanied by nausea, feelings of anxiety and sweating.

Elevator Vertigo

Elevator dizziness feels as if the affected person is in a moving elevator. Normally, such dizziness only lasts a few seconds or minutes and can lead to unsteady gait and an uncomfortable feeling of drowsiness.

Vertigo

Vertigo can suddenly cause a feeling of unsteadiness, light-headedness, and a tendency to fall while standing or walking. Those affected cannot explain this, can become insecure and develop feelings of anxiety.

Central Dizziness

In central vertigo, the vertigo occurs suddenly, lasting seconds or minutes. Those affected sometimes develop difficulties in speaking or swallowing, can no longer see properly or suffer from sensory disturbances and signs of paralysis.

Dizziness is one of the most common complaints of working people in Germany

According to a Statista online survey from 2008, 68.2 percent of employees complained of back pain, 52.2 percent of depression and almost half of those surveyed, 47.7 percent, of dizziness.

Dizziness Causes

Two causes of psychologically induced, somatoform dizziness

There are two types of somatoform vertigo, i.e. psychologically induced vertigo. There is primary somatoform vertigo, which affects about 30 percent of those affected. Primary somatoform vertigo is exclusively due to psychological causes and is experienced by those affected together with psychological stress such as Depression, fears or Panic attacks experienced. Primary dizziness also occurs in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and in social conflicts. It can be observed that many of those affected bear a great deal of responsibility in their social or professional environment. Secondary somatoform vertigo also describes mental vertigo attacks, which affect about 70 percent of those affected. Secondary somatoform vertigo is the result of organic vertigo, for example in connection with migraine (vertigo-migraine), in which somatoform vertigo can also occur over the course of the medical history.

Causes of Psychologically induced Vertigo

The cause and trigger of psychologically induced vertigo are often difficult to comprehend subjectively for many sufferers - at least not at the conscious level. There are assumptions about how somatoform vertigo develops. It can be due to an unpleasant triggering experience, it can also be persistent experiences and events with excessive demands or great stress that lead to dizziness. Unconscious processes can then also bring feelings of dizziness to the surface in similar situations without being able to explain them logically or rationally. This can go so far that the situation itself may have nothing to do with the situation originally experienced.

Dizziness can serve an unconscious function

For the person affected, dizziness can unconsciously fulfill a special function on a physical level. For example, unpleasant situations can be suppressed by the dizziness or not even perceived. If a conflictual discussion is pending at work or in a private environment, the dizziness can cause the affected person to feel so bad that the discussion has to be postponed. In our practice, we see time and again that dizziness can be like a kind of alarm signal from the body. A signal with which the body wants to show certain feelings or also cover them up. When feelings are covered up, as in the example just described, it becomes clear that the dizziness can make it possible to no longer have to deal with the feeling at that moment. What function the dizziness has in a sufferer is part of the hypnotherapy in order to be able to treat it in the best possible way.

Dizziness Consequences

What consequences can psychological dizziness have?

Persistent and untreated dizziness can lead to feelings of shame and a diminishing sense of self-esteem and self-confidence. Fears can also arise as a concomitant disease if they weren't already there before the dizziness, such as agoraphobia. Somatoform dizziness can lead to sufferers in connection with dizziness panic attacks and thereby withdraw and avoid situations more often. Repeated experiences with dizziness confirm those affected and, in addition to the dizziness they have experienced, can also develop a fear of anticipation - a fear of having to experience dizziness again.

The consequences of dizziness can be summarized as follows:
  • Feelings of shame, declining self-esteem, body awareness and diminishing trust in one's own body
  • Avoidance of certain everyday situations with sometimes increased withdrawal into your own four walls up to social isolation
  • Higher risk of developing or perpetuating depression
  • Problems in the professional and private environment when certain situations have to be avoided or canceled or postponed due to dizziness
  • Difficulties and conflicts in relationships and partnerships due to avoidance behavior

Dizziness Hypnosis

Hypnosis for Dizziness - Finding Balance

It is possible to successfully alleviate psychologically-caused vertigo symptoms with the help of hypnosis. Since 2006, there has been an expert opinion from the Scientific Advisory Board for Psychotherapy, which is made up of representatives from the German Medical Association and the Federal Psychotherapist Association. This report scientifically recognizes hypnotherapy in adults as a method for various indications. The successes that can be achieved vary from person to person. The sooner those affected seek help, the more successful hypnotherapy can be. A well-trained and experienced hypnotherapist knows how to professionally accompany people in special situations, no matter how long the symptoms have existed.

Treating the causes of dizziness with hypnosis, reducing stress, strain and anxiety

Hypnosis for mental dizziness and dizziness is there to process what caused the dizziness as well as what is keeping the dizziness going. An important part of hypnosis treatment is working on resolving internal and external conflicts. In our practice, we find that people are aware of what might have caused the dizziness, at least on a conscious, cognitive level. Even if you already know where vertigo comes from, there are many ways and methods you can use hypnosis to use the subconscious to dissolve the unconscious processes that sustain it. Our experience shows that in an effective treatment of dizziness, stressors, possible mental strains and fears should also be part of the hypnosis. We therefore proceed in a very individual and client-oriented manner in the treatment with hypnosis in our practice: Whatever history and experiences you bring with you, you can be sure that we will get involved in the session with your individual needs and that the hypnosis will be specially tailored to you.

Letting go of negative experiences with dizziness in hypnosis

Negative images, experiences, thoughts, beliefs, fears and worries associated with dizziness can be resolved with hypnosis. There are various methods that are successfully used in hypnotherapy for this, such as the exposure experience in trance: Dizziness can be treated with the help of a hypnotherapeutic exposure experience in hypnosis. Exposure experience means experiencing positive experiences, regardless of the everyday situation. The state of hypnosis with deep relaxation is used to make you feel safe and relaxed during the experience. Stressors and experiences that have sustained the dizziness and the fear of experiencing dizziness again can be processed in hypnosis and resources for new positive experiences can be strengthened. The aim is to decouple the connections that repeatedly cause dizziness and to anchor new connections. Hypnosis can be easily combined with coordination, balance and equilibrium exercises, as well as strength and endurance training, which restore the interaction and thus the confidence in one's own body.

Feeling safe again with Hypnosis

In addition to hypnosis in our practice, we support our clients in taking the experiences of hypnosis into their lives with practical self-hypnosis techniques for everyday use beyond the hypnosis session. Once people have experienced new security in hypnosis, they also experience more security and competence in their lives.
