Research consistently shows how damaging chronic stress is to our health. It takes its toll on both our mental and physical wellbeing. It can lead to serious physical health problems as well as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, insomnia, anger issues and relationship breakdown.
Stress is our body’s way of priming us for action when faced with danger. We are flooded with adrenaline and cortisol. Our heart beats faster, our muscles tense and our chest tightens. We are ready for ‘fight or flight’.
The stress response is only helpful when physical action is our best defence. In our modern world we’re usually better served by a clear mind, self-awareness, organisation and creative thought, but stress can make these things difficult. It almost always hampers our performance rather than improves it.
To relieve stress we can:
- Change our perception of our current situation
- Change our reaction to stressors
- Change our situation to remove the causes of stress
Online hypnotherapy for stress is a popular treatment option because it’s completely natural with no unwanted side effects. It puts the individual back in control of their own body and mind. Accessed from the safety and comfort of your own home and at a time to suit you, you can be sure that the process itself will cause you no additional stress.
Hypnotherapy accesses the subconscious to alter unhelpful thinking and behaviour patterns. By reframing a situation we can see things more positively, unlock inner resources and learn techniques to manage and control our stress response. It can even help us change our behaviour to combat the causes of stress.
Online hypnotherapy offers both short and long term stress management strategies and a real opportunity to take control of your life, health and future.
