We keep seeing it in the paper and hearing it on the news; heart disease, cancer, infections, lung disease, and the common cold can often be linked to chronic, long-term stress. There are also the indirect links to things like insomnia (difficulty sleeping), depression, anxiety, weight problems, gastrointestinal difficulties (IBS, Crohn's disesase) and substance abuse to name a few.
When we think about our own stress there often doesn't seem to be anything that we can do about it. The truth is however, that just one session with a trained clinical hypnotist can often greatly reduce your stress – reducing blood pressure, heart rate and pulse.
Changing behaviors and practicing self hypnosis can bring about further long-term changes.
Work frequently produces a stressful environment; difficult co-workers or boss, more work than ever before, an un-fulfilling job, daycare issues can all increase anxiety. Home life involving spouse, children and parents can be stressful as can being the primary care-giver for a sick relative. Test anxiety, finances, social situations, talking in front of people and chronic pain all can create anxiety.
Sometimes our reactions to these stressful situations are reasonable and sometimes we need a little help. Often times our reactions are more about the past then about what's happening right now. Hypnosis can bring more clarity to these situations and reduce stress.
Stress will sometimes manifest itself as depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief, etc. Advanced hypnotherapy techniques are very useful in improving these conditions and stabilizing the changes.
