Anxiety and Stress
Everyone experiences stress and anxiety at some point in their lives. A little bit of stress is good for us. It is a natural response when we push ourselves out of our comfort zone or learn something new. Too much stress, however, can be very damaging.
Not everyone reacts to an experience in the same way and not everyone experiences anxiety at the same level. You may have lived with elevated anxiety for a long time, or it may have been triggered by a bad experience. It can affect every aspect of your life, from how you feel, think and behave, to how well you sleep and even how your body and its immune system function. In the short-term, that is not a disaster, but long-term stress puts your health at risk.
Stress is not a modern invention of course, but figures show that illness caused or exacerbated by stress is on the increase. It is one of the most common causes of workplace absence in the UK, and costs billions of pounds in lost productivity.
Conditions such as depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), agoraphobia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and migraines are all ways that excess or sustained stress can affect our well-being. It can also worsen existing conditions such as psoriasis.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can tackle these conditions by reducing anxiety and helping you to regain a sense of perspective. It facilitates a de-cluttering of the mind and encourages clients to focus on the positive aspects of their lives. Clients usually find their sleep patterns dramatically improve and their motivation, confidence and self-esteem are all restored.
