Hypnotherapy to Relieve Stress and Anxiety
Stress and anxiety are terms often used synonymously, probably due to the fact they can cause similar symptoms. Although closely related, they are, however, different in causation with stressful feelings and events often leading to anxiety if left unresolved.
Stress is usually linked to an external stressor which, when resolved, alleviates the stressful feelings. Anxiety, on the other hand, is an internal reaction to prolonged elevated levels of stress, past unresolved experiences or even causes unknown at a conscious level.
We all experience feelings of stress from time to time and this isn’t necessarily a bad thing; sometimes it can be motivating and encourage us to excel in whatever we’re trying to achieve.
Problems arise, however, when stress levels are unmanaged and the symptoms start interfering with your daily life both physically and mentally.
Symptoms of stress and anxiety include:
Symptoms of anxiety can also include feelings of impending doom and brain fog.
Any of these symptoms can feel incredibly disturbing and clients often feel a sense of relief to learn they are a natural result of a chemical reaction in the brain that occurs when a perceived threat is detected. Essentially, they are gearing your body up for fighting or fleeing a situation.
Therefore the first step is learning how to manage these symptoms and move into a state of quiet calm. From there, we will look at clearing any underlying beliefs that are triggering these uncomfortable and distressing feelings and work towards empowering you with the confidence to move forwards positively. As part of this process, we will discuss a suitable treatment plan which could include using therapeutic techniques that are highly effective at reducing the effects of trauma. I am qualified in two such techniques – the BLAST Technique (a refined form of EMDR) or EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). For more information about these techniques, please click here.
