Stress and anxiety is on the increase globally and can have devastating effects on us. Recent research shows that 10% of the population suffer from constant stress; the most stressed group are working women with school-age children. Left untreated, stress and anxiety manifests itself in serious ways such as sleep problems, depression, panic attacks, sexual dysfunction, mood swings, relationship problems and physical illnesses.
I use hypnotherapy to treat stress in two ways; by training the mind and body to relax effectively and by dealing with the situations that trigger the stress.
Anxiety is a fearful and apprehensive state which causes physical symptoms such as a churning stomach. If left unresolved anxiety can lead to depression; it can also lead to phobias as a person starts to avoid the situations that cause the anxiety.
Hypnotherapy can be used to give you alternative coping mechanisms when anxiety symptoms occur. Contact me and find out more about how you can start to manage your stress. I can teach you techniques you can use whenever you feel stressed or anxious.
I am also an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist providing therapeutic support to the charity’s members and partner beneficiaries. I am subject to Anxiety UK’s regular monitoring of my professional qualifications, supervision, continual professional development, insurance and professional body membership in addition to complying with the ethical framework and professional standards set down by my registered governing body.
