Stress is a normal psychological and physical response to the demands in our daily life. Back in primitive times, it helped us run away from danger. These days, this ‘fight or flight’ response is helpful if we’re actually in danger, if we’re not, this level of sustained alertness and stress can be detrimental to your physical and emotional health.
A recent study by the Mental Health Foundation found that 74% of UK adults have felt so stressed at some point over the last year they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope. The good news is Hypnotherapy can help you relax and teach you to respond more constructively to stress triggers and boost your resilience.
Stress is a response we experience which can either help you or hinder you depending on your ability to cope. It can motivate you to perform and be at your best when needed, boosting your energy, but it becomes a problem and hinders you when you have been under excessive or prolonged periods of pressure. Stress is very common these days, a symptom of modern life and is now the most common cause of long-term absence from work. It can be very debilitating and prevent you from achieving your potential professionally and personally. Do these sound familiar?

Stress happens and that’s not lways bad. Starting a new job, getting married or taking the children swimming can all be happy things, but they can also be stressful! When you have stresses that just don’t seem to go away, perhaps like feeling overwhelmed with work and being perpetually worried about being at home with the family, and it continues for months or years on end, the stress doesn’t just feel awful, it actually causes further psychological and physical harm.
If you’ve noticed changes in your ability to concentrate, make simple decisions, becoming easily distracted or finding yourself constantly worrying, thinking the worst at all times, help is here. Hypnotherapy deals with the underlying factors that contribute to ongoing stress and pressure so you can begin feel better and at your best. Hypnotherapy helps you relax deeply – the opposite of being stressed and Solution Focused techniques helps you formulate a better way of coping with situations and habits in the future.
Sometimes it’s not as simple as removing the cause of pressure of source of challenges facing you. It may be work pressures or family life causing you stress which cannot be avoided. However, hypnotherapy can help you deal with these situations, so you can cope better each day. Often, it’s not the situation you face that causes the stress, it’s your response to it.
We’ll work together using Solution Focused techniques, which helps you formulate a better way of coping with your situation and daily life. Focusing and visualising your preferred future helps your sub-conscious mind create a positive template to work with. Then, by responding to external pressures in a calmer, more positive way, stress-related symptoms often improve. As you begin to think differently, you’ll feel better and feel more able to enjoy life.
