Stress

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?

How our programmes are delivered

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 (Bordin, 1979).

The initial session will start with an introduction to dispel any concerns/misconceptions that you have about hypnotherapy.

Relevant questions will be asked so that we can get a better understanding of what your main issue is, and if there are any other contributing stresses.

If there any obstacles that come 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.
