Anxiety and Panic Attacks
Anxiety is a normal reaction that we all experience from time to time and it does not cause us too much trouble. Some heightened level of excitement or stimulation can in fact help us to overcome a challenge or fear. If it is not an isolated event however and you are feeling this way regularly, then it could be a sign of something more problematic. This can be very lifestyle-limiting and you are not alone.
It might be that you experience anxiety as feeling stressed, tense, worried, uneasy or scared a lot of the time or at particular times every day. You may even experience a panic attack when those feelings become overwhelming. This in turn can cause physiological symptoms like an increased heart rate, nausea, impaired vision, and breathing difficulties. The worry of having anxiety or a panic attack can itself result in becoming anxious.
About 3 million people in the UK suffer from an anxiety disorder. Often clients will talk about anxiety and depression interchangeably. This maybe because the conditions are closely related or ‘co-morbid’. A further 3 million people suffer depression in the UK but only 15% of these 6 million people seek help.
The good news is we can help. By directing your heightened levels of stimulation in the right way, you can get your life back in a relatively short space of time. We have successfully helped many clients just like you and with lasting results. Our toolkit includes helping you find the root of your anxiety and digging it up. By looking at the cause in a different way you can change the way you feel about everyday situations

Before having her treatment with Katerina my daughter was extremely nervous before any public speaking events. She would have stopped sleeping days before and would have turned into a 'naked nerve'...
Now I can see that she's cool as cucumber! She's not any more nervous than any person would be, or even less! She's become very confident and self-accepting which is the most important thing for me as a mother.
I did seek Katerina’s help when I hit a road block in my personal progress and was feeling stressed, unconfident and in limbo.
Katerina helped me to break through from my fears and get my mojo back.
It turns out that hypnosis is a very interesting method of self-discovery. You can learn all things weird and wonderful that have been sitting in your subconscious mind and you had no clue about.
I’d like to say thank you to Katerina Furman and I highly recommend her services.
I got in touch in March 2019 and she estimated I would need 4 or 5 sessions. Turned out I needed 6, and I could see no result after the first 4 sessions.
I would like to encourage those in similar situation — don’t give up and carry on! I noticed progress after session 5 and the problem was completely gone after session 6!
When I compare the time or money required for this approach with what I spent on usual therapy, the choice is obviously in favour of hypnosis.
I haven’t been able to figure out how exactly it works, but it actually doesn’t matter.
What really matters is my emotional wellbeing: I’m always positive, I no longer have thoughts about committing suicide, about being cursed and other rubbish. If you’ve ever lived on an emotional roller coaster, you know what I mean — it may only take 30 min to move from feeling excited to feeling tearful, hysterical and then turning into apathy.
Our work has finished mid April, and it’s been 3,5 months that I’ve been living in a positive state of mind.
Just a couple months ago I haven’t heard anything about 5-PATH. I’ve come across it accidentally when reading Facebook, there was a post of a girl that has been struggling with depression and out of all comments it was the one made by Katerina that stood out for me.
When I viewed the video reviews on her website I could feel that these people were truly happy. Finally, I’ve found it! I wanted to live the way those people were living.
Life was difficult back then. I thought my life wasn’t worth much, my fears were inseparable from who I was, my family was a complete mess, and everyone thought they could teach me how to live my life. I was trying to be a good girl and not to engage into arguments, but the reality was totally opposite.
By that time I’d had experience of unsuccessful talk therapy that had pushed me even deeper into depression and I was feeling totally desperate. I was feeling physically sick looking in the mirror. Shortly before I found Katerina I had tried hypnosis. It didn’t work for me but helped alleviate my fear of hypnosis — it wasn’t scary as I thought it would.
I felt the changes after session 2 of 5-PATH, and after session 3 I was totally transformed. I became a better version of myself — same me, but with no fears and misconceptions. I could compare it to wearing a fur coat in Africa for 30 years and then, out of a sudden, taking it off! Sounds so simple, but everyone was saying “just get on with it”.
But now I feel refreshed, very natural and comfortable with myself. Now I know the true meaning of words “harmony” and “inner smile”. It’s truly amazing!
After the completion of my 5-PATH therapy life threw in a few challenges, but I’m proud that I’ve naturally reacted to those challenges a lot wiser.
I’m eternally grateful to the fate for helping me meet Katerina. She’s so wise, charming and full of energy! I admire her ability to explain complex things in a very simple way, and how professional and tactful she is! I only have very positive memories of our sessions.
Katerina, i thank you personally and thank my fortune that made us meet. My psychological state changed completely and remembering the past does not cause pain, grief or pity anymore. My fears are gone. I stopped worrying about uncertainty of my current position. I feel much more at ease. You noticed clearly my fears and grievances (they were aplenty) and defined the most "bitter" ones which we had to start with. Your sessions feel very professional and you love your job - this sparks confidence and peace of mind. Subconsiously, I felt there is a friend nearby who tries to guide you to heal and relax, and it works. Katerina, you are like a good fairy: you teach whoever could not resolve their fears or pain from losses, etc, etc, by themselves how to leave the negative behind, clear their brain and feel reborn like a Phoenix. To LIVE again and not simply exist, to BE and not only appear, to LOVE and TRUST.
I THANK YOU FROM MY VERY HEART ?
I did not know anything about you when I booked an appointment with you. I was worried if I could manage all the issues I wanted to resolve. Got to say: my internal changes exceeded all my expectations - thank you very much Katerina. I even could not imagine that my "cauldron" was so full with useless regrets and tragedies, it was boiling over. We managed to empty it! And now I "discovered" your Instagram and that's grand! Starting today I will start filling my "cauldron" with magic. It's a great feeling: not only to resolve issues that drag you down but also to set out on your own way, a road where you decide your life and build your own happiness. Thank you Katya fro your well structured sessions of hypnosis and for your wonderful Insta lessons.
Just 2 months ago I felt I reached the bottom: i had panic attached one after another, even in my sleep. I had a choose whether to start there and adapt to swallowing pills to drag on with the existence or push against the bottom to launch up!
So, Katerina Furman of Fuller Life Hypnosis was my launch pad to the World where there is no place for pain, panic or worries. Into the World I'm Loving!!!
Thank you for your talent, your professionalism and choosing your profession.
I had an issue with my stomach, 8 years of doctor visits only gave me a diagnosis of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome — KF), which is not curable but can be controlled, they say.
And another doctor said it’s stress stomach, his solution was “don’t stress too much”...
So the problem was when I stressed out I needed to go to the restroom and when I needed to go to the restroom I stressed, and when there was no restroom close by I stressed and look for one.
I missed so many birthdays and weddings and super important events because I couldn’t leave my house, even if my stomach felt ok, I thought that I would need to go any moment and start stressing about it…
Enough about the problem. The solution. Katerina understood the problem and looked for the root, where is this problem coming from and what caused it and what we need to do to get rid of the root.
It was not easy!
Don’t think someone will tell you “you are rich” in hypnosis and you wake up rich. It was hard work for both Katerina and me. It took time to find the right situation and the experience I lived through that many years later caused me to have a stomach issue like this. This process might not be too pleasant, but it’s worth every second.
Finally I spend so much more time with people and with my family and somewhere out in the park. I can now travel and not worry about finding a restroom close by. I am happier because so much stress is off my shoulders. I feel like I love my husband more, because so many little fights are not there, no reason to have them. I made new friends and already visited new places. It’s an unbelievable feeling of freedom from years of limitations…
Thank you, Katerina! You helped me feel more comfortable in life and I actually started loosing weight, which was not even intended. Thank you!
