Stress and Anxiety
Hypnotherapy puts you back in control of stress and anxiety…
It's only human to feel anxious - sometimes!
It enables us to cope with difficult situations and also protects us by preventing us taking risks which would endanger us.
However, prolonged anxiety and stress can be a real problem - as you are no doubt aware since you are reading this.
Allowed to get out of control, stress and anxiety can ruin our quality of life and often make us physically ill.
Maybe when you wake in the morning - as soon as you open your eyes - you begin to feel a sense of dread.
Perhaps you suffer panic attacks, or a lot of the time you feel panicky and nervous, and you find it a struggle to relax and enjoy things.
Maybe you find it difficult to get off to sleep, or when you do, you wake up in the night or early morning and struggle to get back to sleep because that uneasy feeling kicks in straight away.
Having suffered from anxiety and panic attacks in the past, I know how absolutely debilitating (and at times terrifying) these symptoms can be.
Symptoms of stress and anxiety are many and varied, but some of the most common are:
Generalised feelings of anxiety
Nausea/vomiting (especially in the morning)
Insomnia or poor sleeping patterns
Obsessive or compulsive behaviours
Increased use of alcohol, tobacco or drugs
Change in eating habits
Worsening of existing health problems, such as IBS, eczema, psoriasis
All of these are the consequences of anxiety or stress getting out of control, and it can truly seem like your life will never get back to normal again.
Many people ask me why they are suffering with these symptoms, especially if they have had no trouble coping before.
In fact anxiety and chronic stress can strike anyone, because they are caused by our protective systems getting out of control, and is no reflection on your ability to cope.
Hypnotherapy uses gentle, safe and effective methods to reduce anxiety, and retrain that part of your mind to respond more appropriately to stress.
If you will let me, I will help you to get back in charge, and get this protective part of your mind working in your favour, so that you can finally start enjoying life again!
