Anxiety is a common problem in today’s society and most people will encounter these issues at some point. A certain amount of stress can be dealt with naturally, as long as it stays within your ‘safe levels’. However, when it becomes too much for you to cope with it can affect your quality of life. Excessive or prolonged stress can lead to illness, physical and emotional exhaustion, increased anxiety or even panic attacks.
Around 12 million adults see their GPs with mental health problems each year – most of these suffer from anxiety and depression, much of which is stress related.
Day to day life can add its fair share of stressors. When we sleep at night our brain should process the events of the day naturally and convert them to a narrative memory so that when we wake in the morning we should be fresh and not weighed down by the emotion felt by each incident of the previous day. This is the case as long as our stress stays within safe and manageable levels. Unfortunately, this is not always possible when we have too many stressors and over time, the compounded effect of stressful events can cause overload resulting in anxiety and/or panic attacks and sometimes physical and emotional breakdown.
Hypnotherapy gives you the ability to cope in different situations in a calm and effective way. You will be able to control your anxiety levels and have a calmer, more confident approach to all situations. Hypnosis can help reduce anxiety using relaxation and visualisation techniques which assists you to unravel your thoughts and evaporating the clutter to ultimately create a shift in your perspective.
