‘Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.’ Chinese Proverb
Stress is a normal physical response which we all experience every day. You may have heard of the “fight or flight” reaction which is also known as the stress response. The stress response helps protect us as we meet daily challenges. It keeps us on our toes, keeps us mentally alert, it allows us to perform to our very best. The problem comes when we find ourselves in a constant state of alert where the body does not relax from the stress response. At this point stress stops being helpful to us and in fact begins to negatively impact on our lives. This can manifest itself in many ways, you may notice that your moods change, that you begin to suffer from insomnia, you may experience more anxiety, your health may suffer, you may lose your libido and you could begin to suffer from depression or a general unhappiness, to name but a few symptoms.
Cognitive Hypnotherapy can help by getting to the root cause of the stress and anxiety and helping you move into a calmer way of being. Because the reason behind your stress is unique to you the approach I offer will be tailored to your needs. We may use techniques to help you feel more relaxed before moving on to giving you strategies for feeling more confident, and we may look at past issues that have caused you to react in the way that you do in certain situations.
‘Helen was very much a help to me during a period of great change and anxiety in my life. Her calm and intuitive approach offered me the chance to relax, something I was unable to achieve at any other time of the day or night during that period, and to begin the process of rationalising the situation I found myself in. Her genuine interest and care helped me restore faith in myself and I credit her with a key role in helping me regain my confidence and sense of self belief.’ David- Stress and Anxiety Issues. Hove
