Stress and anxiety
Modern life often results in great demands and responsibilities being placed on us. While some people manage, many people can become overwhelmed, leading to symptoms of stress and anxiety that can significantly affect their wellbeing and quality of life. Common symptoms can include excessive worrying, difficulty concentrating, physical responses such as sweaty palms, racing heart and generally feeling agitated, fearful, irritable, tense or restless and having difficulty sleeping.
You may be one of these people, but are now ready to explore ways of freeing yourself from feelings of stress or anxiety to live a happier life; free to do things that bring you joy. Your hypnotherapist will discuss with you how you experience stress or anxiety, including the cause or triggers, as well as how you wish to feel and what life will be like without it. You will learn about the body’s stress response so that you understand what’s happening at a physiological level and how to influence these automatic responses to promote a greater sense of relaxation and calm. Your hypnotherapist will then work with you to reduce your symptoms, using a range of techniques including relaxation skills and by bringing awareness to your thinking to create more positive, helpful thoughts in a given situation. After sessions, many people report that they feel calmer and have more clarity of thought and feel more confident and relaxed in situations that had previously been challenging.
