Health Anxiety Ireland

Hi, my name is Paul Hunter. If you’ve googled “hypochondria” or “health anxiety”, you are on the right page.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, CBT Practitioner and Life Coach and I have been helping the people of Cork, Kerry, Waterford, Limerick and Tipperary with health anxiety for the past fifteen years.

Health anxiety (or hypochondria) is simply obsessively worrying about health issues. If you are suffering with this condition however, it can seem far from simple to rectify. The main reason is that, even though others may think it’s irrational, it seems completely rational to you.

If you are a hypochondriac, then I’m sure, at some stage, a loved one or a friend has told you that you are “imagining” it. They cannot possibly understand what it feels like to have this constant fear that you have a serious health issue that remains undiagnosed.

Because I have dealt with this issue regularly over the past fifteen years, I do understand. I know you are not “imagining” it. I know that it’s real to you. Working together, we can teach your mind to focus on other, more positive things.

What Caused You To Be Hypochondriac?

Nobody is quite certain what causes hypochondia but here are some things that seem to be common to most hypochondriacs

  • You might have a family member or someone close to you who was either constantly worried about their health or about the health of someone else.
  • Did you suffer with some health condition yourself, maybe during childhood, that scared you and made you overly conscious about your health.
  • Maybe you are a worrier or overthinker and began being hypochondriac because of an unusual pain or ache.

I was absolutely convinced I had cancer. I spent three years going to doctor after doctor, convinced they had missed something. Thanks to you, I rarely think about health issues now. I have my life back.
