So, your question is....."can hypnosis help me????" The very simple answer is Yes!!!
How can hypnotherapy help with Stress relief?
As a hypnotherapist, we can help assess your stress or anxiety, identifying the root cause whether it is a situation, a physical issue, a past experience or a relationship.
Then we may set a goal asking how you wish to feel, how you would like to be, and things that you would chose to do in your life if you were free of stress and anxiety. We will then work together to reach your goals using a range of different techniques. Every therapist may use slightly different techniques, but always towards the same goal.
After our session you may feel more confident; more relaxed in situations that have previously challenged you. Many people say that they are calmer and that they have more clarity of thought – able to make decisions more easily.
People who have experienced side effects of stress and anxiety, such as insomnia, find that they are sleeping much better and as a result are able to work more effectively.
It is as if hypnotherapy unlocks the potential you have to break free of negative thought patterns, and to react more positively and more confidently to situations in your life that may have previously caused you stress and anxiety.
The New England Journal of Medicine......reports that mental stress causes a complex system of hormones and other chemicals to be released in the body. When these hormones are not rapidly inactivated, then the stress persists and the body continues to produce these chemicals, many organs in our body are exposed to harmful consequences.
Stress causes changes in heart rate, blood pressure, and blood-sugar levels, and it increases the secretion of cortisol, a powerful natural steroid hormone.
The article concludes that chronic stress creates damaging physiological changes, and that among these problems can be insulin resistance, heart disease, memory loss, immune-system dysfunction, and decreased bone-mineral density.
