Hypnotherapy for Stress & Anxiety

Stress and anxiety are two of the major curses of the modern world. The fortunate few thrive on stress and reckon it gives them the edge they need to deal with their hectic careers. But for most of us the impact on our lives can be far reaching with the symptoms ranging from anxiety and depression to physical illness and impairment.

Stress usually occurs when home or work pressures become overwhelming leading to our subconscious mind believing we are in crisis.

This triggers off a chemical reaction in the body which, in the short term, is designed to help us survive emergency situations. Known as the "fight or flight syndrome" it prepares our body to do battle by diverting blood supplies away from vital organs, shutting down the digestive system and powering up muscles and enhancing brain activity. This primitive reaction is wonderful at helping us run away from muggers or flee forest fires but very damaging to the body if these reactions continue in the long-term.

Continual stress leads to physical wear and tear on the body which is why sufferers frequently feel physically ill.

The symptoms can include feeling out of control, worrying too much about what might happen tomorrow, lack of concentration, a slump in confidence, disrupted sleep, feeling of hopelessness and helplessness often leading to depression, wanting to give up, get away and to escape. This can result in migraine, IBS, chest pains, skins disorders, panics attacks and many more stress related illnesses.

Many of the symptoms of stress are also those of more serious medicial conditions and it is important to get a proper diagnosis from your doctor before seeking help.

Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming offer a number of different approaches which can help you tackle stress and conquer anxiety.

It is important to understand that there is no guarantee that hypnotherapy will be effective for you as individual circumstances and responses to treatment vary.  However, Nick will do his very best to help you achieve the changes you need.
