Stressed man with unresolved feelings
Stress can affect us in many ways, whether psychologically or physically, and the symptom range is so vast that many of the other related issues we have already listed, can be incorporated into this section. 
On average, a person will say “I’m fine” 14 times a week, but only 19% of people actually mean it. What causes stress can be many things depending upon your circumstances. 
Most people are unaware of how to determine what is causing their feelings of stress, but we can help you to identify why. We can work at changing it so you begin to live more resourcefully. 
Ask yourself, “do I want to feel this way? Behave this way? Or have these thoughts?” and the answer is no, then understand that it isn’t you. The emotional part of your brain has just hijacked you into thinking and feeling this way, but it is definitely possible to change it and with hypnotherapy, change can happen very rapidly. 

So, what are some symptoms of stress? 

Low energy 
Upset stomach (including diarrhoea, constipation, and nausea) 
Aches, pains, and tense muscles 
Chest pain and rapid heartbeat 
Frequent colds and infections 
Loss of sexual desire and/or ability 
Increased use of alcohol /or other substances 
A specific plan is tailored to each person by one of our therapists, to help them achieve their goals and to prepare for any issues along the way. 
We easily identify any issues by using evidence-based procedures to help assess and build a strategic plan for success. 
Case formulation (understanding of issues) is a very important part of any successful therapy. “A problem well defined is a problem halved.” 
We focus on three main aspects that are required by any therapist: 
Bond of trust between therapist and client 
Agreement on therapy goals 
Agreement on therapy tasks 
The initial session will start with an introduction to dispel any concerns or misconceptions you have may about hypnotherapy. 
Relevant questions will be asked so we can get a better understanding of what your main issue is, and if there are any other contributing stresses. 
If there any obstacles getting in the way of you achieving your goals, we will work together to design a flexible plan to prepare for any setbacks so you can stay on track.

Thank you for all your help recently I honestly feel like my old carefree self again and after such a long time being stressed out and anxious it truly feels amazing. Here's my review/recommendation - it might be too long so feel free to snip it! 
For such a long time I was stressed out and anxious and it started to affect every single day of my life. I sought help through my GP but medication and breathing exercises only get you so far when you're really struggling. I knew I wasn't supposed to be this way but I couldn't seem to shake my anxiety so I started to investigate alternative ways to manage it and came across hypnotherapy. I was sceptical at first, but nothing ventured nothing gained.... and I'm so glad I did! It's hard to put into words but I somehow feel like I've found the real me and after only a few sessions I feel like I can manage my anxiety much more easily which is such a massive deal to me. If you're at that point trying to decide if it's for you or not give it a try because if it helps, then like me you'll be wondering why you didn't try it a lot sooner.

I have absolutely loved working with Linda and recommend her and hypnotherapy to everyone. I had tried mindfulness to relax and keep my head clear but it was hard work compared to hypnotherapy. I was amazed at how quickly my head learnt to create space to be able to systematically deal with big and small anxieties. I hadn't realised that I was even stressed until I realised how much easier everything was after hypnotherapy. And it lasts - over my time working with Linda I've learnt from her amazing well rounded experience and insight (and without any effort on my part) to be able to keep a clear head so that I feel that I can not only cope but excel in any situation. I can not recommend SanaMente enough.

I walked in a broken man due to anxiety, severe panic attacks, uncontrollable stress levels and powerful overthinking. I had 5 sessions with Clare and followed the recordings she sent me each week – I did them morning and night without fail and sometimes during the day too. After 5 sessions, I walked away a different person, more at ease, happier and finally remembered what a smile felt like. Even a member of staff in the office I only had brief encounters with noticed the change in me on week 4. 
In the 1st session my brain was fighting the hypnotherapy, I was struggling to relax and let myself go. After the 1st session I would say it’s important to practice the recordings Clare will give you and as time goes on you will be a lot more at ease and start to look forward to doing them. I would strongly recommend using Clare for any problems you are having.

I wanted to say thank you for all of your support so far on my journey to being at one with myself. Although I still feel at the beginning of this journey, you have already helped me in so many ways. Learning different coping mechanisms, letting go and supporting me to deal with day-to-day life. Already as I approach one of my usual trigger times of the year, my stress and anxiety levels are lower than they have ever been. I am able to recognise different emotions, take time out and re-focus. Being equipped with the right tools to deal with whatever may occur. Thank you not only for myself but also for the ongoing service and support you have provided to both colleagues and clients alike. Thank you again for your continued support.

I signed up for hypnotherapy after suffering for years from stress and anxiety. I would never fully commit to anything as I was afraid it would raise my anxiety levels and I would have a panic attack. Linda and her team have worked miracles. I am so much more confident and no longer feel I need to hold back in any area of my life.

After only a couple of sessions with Linda, I found the stress levels significantly reduced. The sessions were a relaxation for me. The whole approach revolved around helping me to disengage from work-related matters by getting me to focus on the good things in my life. I can thoroughly recommend Linda to all those in need of getting to grips with a stressful life; the benefits are really worth the time and effort.

Since seeing Linda, I have felt more confident in myself and feel less stressed from work. My panic attacks have completely stopped and I’m very motivated in my personal life.

I have recommended a few people to you over the last few months and have had nothing but great feedback from the people who have visited, and who continue to follow your techniques. Before I did the initial introduction, I was asked if the service was confidential. They were afraid of any additional stress and were a little daunted by the thought of someone knowing their problems. 
I said with no hesitation how professional Linda and her team are, and that confidentiality is a crucial part of her profession. Once the sessions had been completed, one of the referrals told me that their confidence is higher, they realised that there is help available for the situation they have and that the help will be continually available if it is needed. 
I know this person has had a particularly stressful year and now that they can see the light at the end of the tunnel, it helps. They have changed the way that they once managed their workload. Their outlook on life is happier and they are becoming the person that they once were. I can personally see what Linda had done for these people and with that, I have no hesitation in recommending Linda and the team at SanaMente.

I’d like to thank you for the help and support you have given to my daughter in preparing for her exams. I asked her to give me her thoughts on how you helped and this is her response. 
“For a long time, I have struggled with high levels of anxiety around school, exams, friendships and other people. Linda helped me over a few weeks to be more at ease with myself and to be calmer in stressful situations. I am really grateful for how she has helped me, and her help has lowered my anxiety level a lot. Although sometimes I still let my worries get the better of me, I now feel so much more ready to face my exams in the summer and many new pressures that will arise in the future. I thank Linda for that”.
