Anxiety and Stress
Anxiety and stress can affect us both physically and mentally. Hypnotherapy can help you to find new ways to deal with potentially stressful situations. This is achieved by looking at how you feel and respond to problematic situations and triggers. During the relaxed, focused state that hypnosis brings, you have the opportunity to replace unhelpful responses with more beneficial alternatives. As a result, you should regain a sense of being in control. And you will most likely feel “lighter” after hypnotherapy, where before you’d felt panicked or weighed down.
Hypnotherapy is particularly beneficial for sufferers of anxiety because the process itself is deeply relaxing. This reminds us of what it feels like to be both physically and mentally relaxed and, after the session, can help us to return to that natural state of relaxation more easily. I can also provide audio recordings that you can play at home. These reinforce the relaxing and healing therapy.
By reducing anxiety and stress, related conditions such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), certain allergies and insomnia can also be addressed and relieved.
