Not all stress is bad, it can serve as a much-needed motivator to complete tasks and reach our goals.

However if stress is neglected, it can have a negative impact on your mind and body, as well as your life.

We all respond to stress in different ways, and many health problems can be attributed to psychological imbalances. Because of this, learning how to manage your stresses will lead to not only a healthier mind, but also a healthier body.

Major life changes such as moving house, divorce, changing job, bereavement or even going on holiday have been listed as stress-triggering events and will affect each of us differently.

When stress starts to affect everyday life such as sleeping problems, anxiety or lack of motivation, then it is time to address the issue and change your mind-set.

Hypnosis can help deal with behaviours caused by stress such as anxiety and anger-management, but learning how to deal with the stress itself can help solve all these independent issues as well. Our self-hypnosis download is one way that can help you learn to cope with stressful situations.

Hypnotherapy can be used to help a person relax and manage the thoughts and emotions that affect us on a physical, mental and emotional level, in everyday life.

Simple techniques such as breathing exercises can help with specific events that may trigger anxiety or cause undue stress.

There may be a deeper issue that is causing you to be more upset in certain situations and this could be something you are not even consciously aware of. However the repressed anxiety is like a beach ball held down under water; every time you try to let go it’s there, trying to float back to the surface.

Hypnosis can help identify the root cause of issues like this and your therapist can show you how to deal with this in an effective way.

Another way hypnosis can help is mental rehearsal.  By visualizing scenarios that cause anxiety and changing the outcome we can change the way that our mind-map works.  This can be combined with positive affirmations and used in future scenarios to empower us in those situations that would previously cause anxiety.

For example, if attending interviews was something that you would normally find nerve-wracking, you could use your affirmations or a simple anchor that links directly to your confident emotions and use this technique at future job-interviews.
