Pressure turns into stress when you feel unable to cope. People have different ways of reacting to stress, so a situation that feels stressful to one person may be motivating to someone else.
Many of life’s demands can cause stress, particularly work, relationships and money problems. And, when you feel stressed, it can get in the way of sorting out these demands, or can even affect everything you do.
If we live with these feelings for too long, the consequences for our mental and physical health can be dire. It can ultimately lead to headaches, insomnia and high blood pressure. So it’s no surprise that people are trying to find the best tried and tested ways to effectively relieve and deal with it.
Stress can affect how you feel, think, behave and how your body works. In fact, common signs of stress include sleeping problems, sweating, loss of appetite and difficulty concentrating.
You may feel anxious, irritable or low in self-esteem, and you may have racing thoughts, worry constantly or go over things in your head. You may notice that you lose your temper more easily, drink more or act unreasonably.
You may also experience headaches, muscle tension or pain, or dizziness.
A little worry or anxiety can be helpful if it genuinely helps us to solve a problem or spurs us into action. However, for many people, anxious thoughts and feelings or worries can take over; thoughts can go round and round your head and make life a misery.
Most of my anxiety clients notice changes from around the first to third session.
Hypnotherapy offers an amazingly effective way of changing this for you. If you are not able to consciously rationalise your way out of an anxious thought, feeling or worry, it’s likely that it originates from a deeper level, the subconscious. And it’s at this level that hypnotherapy is effective.
Hypnotherapy can help you to:
– Change unhelpful thought patterns
– Boost self-confidence and reduce stress
– Help you to regain control over your mind
– Help you to stay more present, rather than worrying about the future or the past.
– Be more positive and optimistic
– Feel more relaxed, free and happy
The success of hypnotherapy depends greatly on the client’s ability to follow instructions and a personal desire for change. As such, hypnotherapy results vary from person to person and I cannot offer any guarantee of success. If you do not want to change, for yourself, you are advised to seek help through other avenues. If you have been sent by another practitioner, then you need to decide on what changes need to be made.
