You may find that your stress has got out of control.
Your life seems to be running way with you.
Work may be closing in on top of you.
You may be anxious, hyperventilating, may have a tight chest or palpitations, have trouble sleeping and might even be arguing with others in your life constantly.
You may feel under pressure and unable to cope. Or you may find ordinary, everyday life stressful and do not have a coping mechanism for simply getting from A to B.
Well here is the bottom line…life is competitive and we have to compete for our place at the table as well as look after our families.
I see many corporate people who have to work 12 to16 hours a day and travel to and from work; life seems to be a constant treadmill.
I also see people who find themselves in difficult relationships and they seem to live in a constant state of alarm.
Stress will kill!
Not all stress will kill, of course, because small stressors motivate us forward in life. But when stress has got out of hand over a protracted period you go into the fight and flight response where your immune system is damaged, digestion becomes poor and you become depressed and or unable to cope.
Stay in the stress response even longer and your mind becomes cloudy, you make poor decisions, your adrenal gland gets exhausted and you become profoundly susceptible to illnesses such as adrenal exhaustion, auto-immune diseases, malnutrition, MS and cancer.
It’s time to implement some stress management therapy.
Since I am a naturopath as well as a clinical hypnotherapist, medical nutritionist, and herbalist, I take a full medical history with stress and anxiety management and may order blood tests so that we can get a good idea of what is happening with you.
There may be physical reasons you are so stressed. Sometimes I prescribe some herbs, foods, changes of lifestyle or make other recommendations to help you with stress management.
I may even ask for further physiological investigation from specialists.
Many people can be afraid or embarrassed to talk to other people about this problem but we provide a safe, confidential, professional environment to help you. I have helped thousands of people get over being too stressed and live a better quality of life, so I make you feel very comfortable and safe in my office.
For most people stress is a lack of coping mechanism and skills. I teach you those skills.
Hypnotherapy is an excellent tool to help dispel stress and teach you how to de-stress yourself with self-hypnosis so you can do this at home.
Hypnosis goes deep into your unconscious mind and helps change your physical body as well, as you automatic behaviours and experiences.
No matter what the source of your stress is, you can successfully implement anger and stress management using hypnotherapy and learn to feel very relaxed and cope with life well.
What is actually interesting for you to consider, which science has recorded many times, is that people who are less stressed actually perform better and make better decisions in every aspect of their lives.
