Manage your stress and take back control of your life.
Stress in itself is not an illness; stress is a state of mental tension and worry caused by excessive or prolonged pressures or challenges in your life – such as work, family, relationships, illness, finances, or generally just having a busy life!
Whether or not you show signs of stress will depend on whether you feel able to cope with those pressures or challenges. If you can cope, then you’re unlikely to exhibit symptoms of stress. However, if you feel you can’t cope, then you’re more likely to experience adverse physical, emotional or psychological reactions to those pressures.
Stress is very common and in recent times has become the most common cause of long-term sickness absence for employees. Over time, stress may also lead to serious health problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, anxiety disorder, and other illnesses.
How can solution focused hypnotherapy help?
It’s not always easy to remove the source of the pressure or challenges that you face. But it’s typically not the situation itself that’s causing you stress, it’s how you think about that situation.
By using solution focused techniques, I can help you reframe the way you think and get you focusing on the positives in your life. This will help you to respond to the pressures and challenges of life in a calmer, more positive way, helping you get back control and thus helping improve your symptoms of stress.
