Anxiety & Stress

Anxiety & Stress

Excessive stress can lead to so many negative behaviours like; drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, taking drugs or comfort eating. It might also trigger or exacerbate migraines, high blood pressure, Irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers and can lead to burnout, anxiety, panic attacks, depression and more.

Stress is the evolutionary natural physical response to situations where we feel under threat. The ‘fight or flight’ response is designed to keep us safe from physical danger and enables us to run away from attackers or prepare us to put up a good fight. Our muscles tense, our blood pressure increases the blood circulation to the heart and we breathe faster to get more oxygen into our blood so that our limbs are ready for action. Once the danger has passed our body should rebalance itself and return to a calm state.

However, the world we live in today can mean that we’re subject to unrealistic deadlines, critical bosses, traffic jams, pressure to achieve, bad news, fears and diseases.  All of these things can accumulate and lead to increase small amounts of stress hormones into our bodies. It can have an extremely negative effect on us that can often cause us to be in a constant state of alert, which can lead to physical symptoms. If we start worrying about these physical symptoms they can cause even more anxiety which leads to stronger symptoms and so the viscous cycle goes on.

Hypnotherapy aims to reprogram the negative thought patterns and calm the physical symptoms in the shortest time possible, to enable you to stay calm and take back control of your feelings.
