Easing Anxiety and Stress with Hypnotherapy

Waking relaxed, calm and energised helps us to enjoy each day which in turn increases our self-confidence and motivates us to do the things we want to do.

Some stress is necessary and fundamental to our survival. In reasonable levels this can be harnessed to improve performance, heighten senses, increase energy and get things done but when stress gets out of hand we lose intellectual control and begin to display symptoms of anxiety, depression and/or anger. Our mental and physical health is affected and we loose our ability to enjoy life.

When stress levels rise our brain initiates the flight/fight response. This response is useful when we are actually faced with danger but not when we are going about our day to day lives, i.e, going to work, sitting an exam, getting the kids to school, financial responsibilities or meeting new people.

Hypnotherapy gives you the ability to deal with situations in a calm and more productive way. Hypnotherapy helps to reduce levels of Cortisol (stress hormones) in the brain, which allows you to stay calm and more rational. In addition, Hypnotherapy helps you break the cycle of negative thinking that can perpetuate anxiety, by getting you focused on the positive aspects of your life. This allows you more control over your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, enabling you to feel more relaxed and confident in all situations.

This new state of calm can also be aided by the teaching of skills to lower stress levels, together with the use of self-hypnosis and a relaxation track to use at home.
