Too much stress and the feelings associated with it can have a big impact on our life affecting almost everything we do. When prolonged stress goes unaddressed it can lead to increasing anxiety thus making things a whole lot worse.
Stress is our natural response to life-threatening situations - essential thousands of years ago when our ancestors where predated by wild animals. Fortunately, nowadays, such life-threatening conditions are rare.
We do however have a different kind of threat that we must learn to adapt to; it's the modern-day threat of mental overstimulation, worries and concerns that comes from the pressures associated with current day living that is often news and media driven.
Generalised anxiety is extremely common. It's often the result of constant low-level perceived (survival) threats that can lead to chronic anxiety.
GAD is where someone has a constant anxiety response to situations that would not normally affect them as much as it does. It makes life very difficult for the sufferer, is very draining and sucks the enjoyment out of life.
Those who suffer GAD know that the anxiety isn't rational, but because it's firing automatically, neither can they control it by logic and reasoning alone.
But GAD doesn't happen for no reason at all. A life event can be at the root of an emotional trigger. There may be a specific situation such as a stressful job or relationship from where the anxiety is 'leaking'. And when one or more emotional needs are not being met, anxiety can result.
Some people are more prone to stress and anxiety than others. It’s important to recognise there’s no shame in experiencing stress and anxiety. Neither should it be ignored because it can potentially lead to depression.
The good news is that stress and anxiety can be easily managed. Relaxation is a key antidote to managing stress and overcoming anxiety although it is not a stand-alone treatment.
Hypnotherapy is particularly effective because it speaks directly with the unconscious part of the emotional brain where our responses to stress inducing stimulus reside.

“A recent bereavement evoked feelings of grief from my past that I had not dealt with. Although skeptical at first, Janice’s non-evasive treatment helped me to come to terms with my grief and get on with my life. I will always be grateful for the level of warmth and understanding given by Janice during this very difficult time.” ~ C.L.P.
