Stress & Anxiety

Stress
Are you experiencing ‘systems overload’?
Things were fine, then one more demand, tipped you over the edge...you no longer feel able to cope.

Many of life’s demands can cause stress, especially work, relationships and money problems, and when you feel stressed, it can affect everything you do.

Stress can affect how you think, how you feel, how you behave and how your body works. Sleeping problems, sweating, loss of appetite or overeating and difficulty concentrating are common signs of stress.

You may currently be coping by adopting unhealthy coping methods, such as drinking or smoking, which in the longer term will only have a detrimental effect on your health.

There are many ways I can help you to manage your stress more effectively: from learning how to relax through hypnosis and by teaching you self-hypnosis; by supporting you through counselling to help you identify and disempower your particular triggers and to develop more effective and healthy coping techniques.

Stress if unaddressed can potentially cause serious health complications such as high blood pressure and can lead to anxiety and depression. Learning the skills to manage it now can prevent such complications.

Anxiety
Stress can flow over into anxiety. Anxiety is more about fear and worry: worrying about events in the past and imagining what might happen in the future.

Your fear might have started off logically but it has become more illogical as you’ve built it up in your mind.
Are you now avoiding that situation, person or event?
Are you experiencing anxiety symptoms, sweating, racing heart rate, muscle tremor or weakness, just at the thought of the situation?

Again anxiety management, like stress management is a skill that can be learnt, you can learn and practise the skills to dissolve away the fear you hold about facing the situation you are avoiding and instead feel only healthy concern. TFT is particularly effective as a technique to burst that anxiety bubble and partnered with hypnotherapy which guides you to learn how to truly relax, you are able to once more feel in control.
