Stress

As soon as you wake up in the morning - is your first thought stressful? Perhaps you’ve just had a nice relaxing sleep and you’ve woke up to a stress inducing thought about your day ahead? Perhaps you haven’t slept well due to stress? Are you dreading going into work or perhaps the thought of getting up and facing the day is dragging you down before you’ve even got up.

The origins of stress can come from many sources:

  • Workplace duties and responsibilities
  • Relationships
  • Family life and responsibilities
  • Divorce
  • Disability
  • A new job
  • Long term illness
  • Holidays

Stress is a natural response to external stimuli, it can be be seen as a positive aspect of our lives - without this sort of provoking - we would lead pretty dull and directionless lives. But too much of this can trigger all sorts of issues for us, such as depression or physical symptoms.

The symptoms of negative stress are well known to us, and include:

  • Increased irritability
  • Signs of tension, such as nail-biting
  • Difficulty getting to sleep and early morning waking
  • Drinking and smoking more
  • Indigestion
  • Heightened sensitivity to criticism
  • Loss of concentration

How can we help?

If you are particularly stressed due to an upcoming event or single issue in your life, then suggestion therapy can be extremely beneficial for you in dealing with this. You may be about to make a long journey, start a new job or you’re just in an incredibly busy period. This type of hypnotherapy can make you feel more at ease and reduce the tension you are experiencing allowing you to feel more in control and relaxed about things.

Hypnotherapy is extremely beneficial in reducing stress levels regardless of the problem being treated, so it is especially useful in these situations. One session of hypnotherapy around 1-2 weeks before the event will help give you a positive view and to get through the event with minimal problems.
