Hypnosis For Stress

Apr 10, 2008
Whilst stress may be a natural symptom of our busy lives, it can also lead to severe health implications if left unchecked. Many people are unaware of how deeply stressed they are actually feeling on a daily basis and their stress levels can begin to increase as external pressures become increasingly difficult to control. It is first of all, vital to identify what is causing the stress and also identify the symptoms being experienced:

* Irregular sleeping patterns
* Feeling run down
* Unable to focus or concentrate
* Headaches
* Fear of losing control
* Stomach problems including Irritable Bowel Syndrome
* Feeling irritable and tense
* Neck and shoulder tightness
* Poor memory
* Confidence issues

Long term symptoms can also develop, for example:

* Ulcers
* Heart problems
* Cancer

Learning how to firstly recognize and then how to manage stress is paramount to regaining control and whilst we are unlikely to ever be able to eliminate stress from our lives completely, it is possible to make it less intrusive. A certain amount of stress however, can help us to function more sharply and react quickly to sometimes dangerous or extreme situations. Athletes for example face extreme stress when about to compete; the stress can help them to excel in a short term. Stress is of course tiring and harmful when it continually occurs over a long period of time and this is where it is most dangerous to our health and the solution has to be how we manage stress so that it does not became an issue or have a negative impact on our daily lives.

Learning how to react to stressful conditions is achievable by learning more about two therapies which have been proven to be beneficial and these are hypnotherapy and neuro linguistic programming (NLP).

Hypnotherapy helps the client to be able to focus on a particular problem or issue that they wish to change and the therapist then guides the client gently into a state very similar to deep relaxation.

NLP helps to associate ways of making changes to existing behaviors and focus's on learning how the client reacts to events on an individual level and how it can provide more positive and alternate ways of adapting to a new way of viewing life. Understanding how we react to certain situations is important so that we learn how to improve existing patterns.

Statistics from the 2006/07 survey of Self-reported Work-related Illness (SWI06/07) prevalence estimate indicated that around 530000 individuals in Britain believed in 2006/07 that they were experiencing work-related stress at a level that was making them ill, this is highly concerning and on an individual basis, needs to be addressed.

Whilst businesses need to learn how to help their workers manage stress, individuals do have to take ownership and responsibility to seeking out ways of coping with stress in a way that would be effective to them. Learning relaxation techniques, taking up yoga, incorporating more physical exercise into daily living can really help to ease the pressures of stress, but for quick, long-lasting and effective results, take time to seek out a qualified hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner combined.
