Hypnotherapy for Anxiety & Stress Relief
Anxiety and stress can be physical, as in pain or danger (running away from a vicious dog), or psychological, as in mental and emotional stimulus (feeling overwhelmed, overworked, being fearful of meeting the judgement of others).
It is the mental and emotional stimulus that generally causes most stress in today’s busy life.
Hypnotherapy and NLP relieves stress by identifying all the triggers (sometimes they’re quite unexpected), enabling you to reprogram your actions in response to those triggers. In turn, this helps you build skills that will help to deal with similar future situations in a positive and healthy way.

Life can be full of stress, and indeed, stress is a part of everyday life. Stress is simply a reaction in your body when you feel challenged in any way. In fact, like most people, you probably enjoy a bit of a ‘stressful challenge’. An element of stress sparks us into action and improves our performance, whether it be for sporting academic, business or general activities. this is often referred to as ‘good stress’ or ‘eustress’.
However, stress becomes a problem when it turns into distress. That is, the difference between the current challenges and your ability to cope with them. This can produce tensions that are serious enough to interfere with your normal daily activities because the original disturbance and ‘upset’ in your inner world manifests as stress. And given that the outer world (your daily life) can be full of issues, this forms a ‘vicious circle’ which compounds the problem.
Our body is constantly on high alert – it’s like driving a car with the brake and accelerator pedals both flat to the floor, it eventually wears the engine, which stops operating as it should.
While this overwhelm can be due to external circumstances, it can also be due to emotional build-up of dealing with Life’s experiences to the point we are carrying what I call Excess Emotional Baggage.
That’s why it’s important to deal with stress in a preventative way. While stress may become a problem by an obvious route, it often builds up over time.
