Hypnotherapy for Stress

Stress has to be one of the most overused words in modern day conversation. It has become increasingly used as a label for anyone behaving in any way that might be outside the parameters of what we might consider to be expected or ‘normal’.

The problem with it being used as a label is that it trivialises what is actually a serious psychological issue that, if left unaddressed, can have a catastrophic impact on our physical and mental health.

Everyone experiences periods in their life when they feel under stress. Often that stress is focused on financial pressures, challenging situations at work or at home, or health, and in many cases these periods are short-lived and disappear.

But chronic and ongoing stress can trigger physical and emotional symptoms that are much more serious, and which can become part of a vicious circle of declining health.

When stress becomes a part of daily life, it’s important that we take it as seriously as we would any other illness and get the treatment needed to be able to deal with it.

Symptoms of stress can include:

  • headaches or dizziness
  • muscle tension or pain
  • stomach problemschest pain or a faster heartbeat
  • sexual problems
  • difficulty concentrating
  • struggling to make decisions
  • feeling overwhelmed
  • constant worrying
  • forgetfulness
  • being irritable and snappy
  • sleeping too much or too little
  • eating too much or too little
  • avoiding certain places or people
  • drinking or smoking more
Hypnotherapy For Stress

Ignoring symptoms of stress can lead to problems with digestion, insomnia, a decline in your natural immune system and an increased risk of heart attack or stroke.

Hypnotherapy for stress helps to resolve the stress triggers that produce the symptoms you are experiencing.

Stress is the body’s response to the subconscious identifying a perceived danger and putting the body on constant alert. The subconscious – the body’s inner protector – now goes into constant scanning mode, continuously assessing the identified risk and producing an emotional and physical response from the body that we know as ‘fight or flight’.

Using hypnotherapy for stress, we can work with you to address the problems that are at the root of your stress response, helping you to either tackle and resolve the problems themselves or allowing you to reframe the problem so that your stress response is significantly reduced or eliminated.

We know that stress can be incredibly debilitating and if can often feel as though you are a hostage to your subconscious response to it.

As experienced and expert practitioners, our highly trained therapists use hypnotherapy for stress to help you to acknowledge the subconscious and reduce the perceived threat it sees, giving it permission to exit scanning mode and stand down.

Stress Hypnotherapy

We do this using one or more of a variety of techniques that are tailored to your specific issue and best suited to help eliminate your stress triggers and, therefore, your emotional and physical responses to them.

We each have two central nervous systems – the parasympathetic and sympathetic systems – which relate to relaxation and stress respectively, and only one can ever be ‘on’ at any given time.

Most of the time the parasympathetic system should be in control. But at times of stress, the protective sympathetic system takes over. In times of extended or great stress, this system can become ‘always on’.

Our hypnotherapy for stress aims to break that chain, allowing your parasympathetic system to regain control, reducing or eliminating your stress response, and allowing you to find peace and happiness.
