Stress and Anxiety Treatment

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.

Although stress and anxiety share many of the same emotional and physical symptoms they have different origins. Understanding which you are needing help with with will determine the best treatment plan for you.

Understanding stress

Stress occurs when the pressures of life become greater than we feel able to cope with or manage; as a result we may feel uncomfortable emotions such as overwhelm, frustration, anger or fearfulness.

You might not even realize it, but stress can show up in so many different forms. From overwhelm, anxiety, weight gain, weight loss, loss of sleep and strained relationships – just to name a few.

Stress serves as an important part of our safety and survival. It was essential thousands of years ago when our ancestors were particularly vulnerable to attack from predators.  It is therefore a natural response to real or perceived life-threatening situations.

Nowadays we 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. 

Hypnosis and coaching is an effective treatment for stress.

General Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

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.  

Hypnotherapy, NLP and CBT techniques along with an understanding of the nature of anxiety is an effective treatment for anxiety.

Don't put off dealing with stress or anxiety

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.

Hypnosis is particularly effective because it speaks directly with the unconscious part of the emotional brain where our responses to stress inducing stimulus reside.

When you work with me, not only will you experience relief from stress and anxiety, you will learn techniques to apply in your everyday life that will serve you in the long term.

If you are experiencing too much stress, disabling anxiety or possibly heading for burnout or depression, then get in touch with me today and schedule a free initial consultation.

During the call, I can learn more about your situation and recommend the best way forward. There's no obligation.

“A recent bereavement evoked feelings of grief from my past that I had not dealt with. Although sceptical 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.
