Stress and Anxiety

Stress and Anxiety

 You may be feeling that life is overwhelming, leading to stress and anxious feelings. There are so many stressors in today’s world, succeeding in your career, cooking healthy dinners for your family, driving your children to music lessons or football practice, trying to spend time with your spouse. Does it ever end? You may be pulled in so many different directions that days just run into each other, leaving you feeling frazzled and anxious.

Everyone feels anxious or stressed at times and some stress can be useful, enabling our bodies to release adrenaline and help us accomplish projects or cope with life events. Stress can even enhance our problem solving ability or performance.

Constant or chronic stress and anxiety can however be very negative – affecting our sleep, concentration and memory, eating behaviours, drug and alcohol consumption and personal relationships.

Some problems are made worse when we are feeling stressed or anxious, including migraines, nail biting, blushing and obsessive compulsive behaviours.

High levels of stress over a long period of time has a negative impact on the body, contributing to heart disease, a weakened immune system, skin problems, weight issues and high blood pressure.

Solution focused hypnotherapy and NLP are highly effective ways to reduce your excess stress and anxiety and cope better with everyday life stressors.  The guided focus and positive words in hypnotherapy can help you re-programme your unconscious and create a calm, relaxed and positive mindset.
