Stressful situations affect us all from time to time. But stressful situations or emotional responses which do not pass can affect us physically, mentally and emotionally. It becomes more difficult to manage our daily lives.
Unfortunately, some of us wait until stress and anxiety have caused a major health issue before seeking help. It might be sleepless nights, increasing irritability and anger, or tearfulness and anger. Or it could be an increase in the frequency of migraines, or bouts of irritable bowel. In some cases, it can result in a combination of these things, and suddenly we find ourselves struggling to cope.
Whilst medication for the symptoms might bring some instant relief, it does not tackle the cause, and the stress will keep coming. Recognising that we need to act to make changes in our lives earlier is essential if we are going to get better and keep on top of things.
Clinical hypnotherapy uses relaxation and visualisation techniques to help us manage stress and anxiety levels. Clients are encouraged to practice these techniques regularly to support sustainable wellbeing improvements. As the hypnotherapy treatment progresses, the client will increasingly find that they can face their daily lives feeling calmer and more confident.
At the same time, they will be better able to tackle obstacles they are facing and identify possible solutions. Most of all, hypnotherapy enables the client to take back control of their life, so that they are better equipped to face the future with renewed optimism and enthusiasm.
