What is stress?

Stress is the response of our mind and body to a perceived threat or danger. So, if you found a sabre-toothed tiger sitting on your drive then your response to this life-threatening moment would be helpful. However, most things in our lives are not life-threatening; it’s just modern life to get caught in traffic, receive bills, make decisions, sit exams, deliver a presentation or speech or book a holiday.

Stress is a state of mental tension caused by worry, or by our inability to cope, and become overwhelmed. Busy lives, illness, relationships, family, finances and work can, at times, seem too much and we may begin to display symptoms of stress such as poor health, anger, sleeplessness, forgetfulness and constant worry.

Sound familiar? You are not alone. Stress in recent times has become one of the most common causes of absence at work. But there is an easier way.

How can Solution Focused Hypnotherapy help stress?

I will work with you using modern-day techniques that help you to focus on what you can control – your thoughts, your feelings and your behaviour – so you can reduce your stress response. By focusing on all the positive things in your life, and how you want to be in the future, you can build new ways of thinking and create an easier way of coping with all that life throws your way.  You’ll be pleased at how different your life can be after a few sessions.

Sounds like where you’d like to be? Then feel free to get in touch.

I was worried about everything and everybody, waking up feeling sick and crying myself to sleep. I knew it had to stop.  After just one session I felt more calm and in control of my emotions and within a few weeks my friends we amazed at the change in how I was dealing with everything. Five stars from me for a life changing therapy” – Vanessa
