Stress & Anxiety

 

STRESS

Many of life’s demands can cause stress; money issues, relationship difficulties or problems at work.  When you feel stressed, it can stop you sorting out these demands or simply seem to affect everything you do.  It becomes almost like a ‘catch 22’. People often feel stress as a result of a trigger or a specific event, but it can also be a gradual effect of life’s pressures slowly building up over time.

Stress is the body’s natural reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or a response. It is a normal part of life and keeps us alert and ready for danger.  Without this natural fight/flight reaction we would have died out hundreds of thousands of years ago.   It becomes a negative state of being when there seems no let up and can affect your emotions, behaviour, thinking and health. Research shows that continued stress can bring on or worsen certain symptoms or illnesses including headaches, stomach upsets and high blood pressure. It can even increase the risk of having a stroke or heart attack.  Chronic stress has also been linked to diabetes and obesity.

 

 

 

More often, stress leads to psychological problems. It can make people feel distrust, anger, anxiety and fear, which in turn can destroy relationships at home and at work. Stress also plays a key role in the development of anxiety disorders and depression.

Stress can affect different people in different ways, what is stressful for one can be nothing out of the ordinary for another. Standing up and giving a presentation to room full of strangers may reduce one person to a quivering wreck but to a stand-up comedian the thought of entertaining a crowd fills them with adrenalin and excitement.

How can Solution Focused Hypnotherapy help?

Although it might not be possible to remove the cause of the stress, with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy we can help you cope better with the situation. When you are feeling overwhelmed by a situation, rational thoughts and solutions seem a million miles away. By encouraging a more relaxed frame of mind, we can help you respond in a completely different way to what is going on around you.  It is often not the actual event that is stressful but rather your thoughts and feelings surrounding that event which creates a sense of panic and being out of control. We look at how we are all hard-wired to react like this and show you ways to look at things in a different light, and thereby finding better ways to cope and strategies to move forward.

DON’t just take our word…

Amanda is a great therapist

Her innate kindness and calm assurance set you at ease from the start. She works in a variety of ways to help you find answers and remove any blocks that are preventing you from thriving. As well as hypnotherapy she teaches methods for self calming that can be used anywhere, anytime. My daughter benefited greatly from seeing Amanda for help with debilitating vertigo.

I can’t rave about Amanda highly enough!

Amazing, calming, funny, friendly and totally in tune with everything that I had to say. For the first time in a long time, I have hope that there is a way forward for me. Thank you, Amanda. I am looking forward to my journey with you.

A big thank you to Amanda

I can only say a big thank you to Amanda, she has made such a big difference to my life and how I deal with and feel about certain situations. She has helped retrain my brain to feel more positive and get rid of negative thoughts. Today I am moving to America and I although I am very apprehensive, I am trying to look at the experience in a positive way, which was certainly not how I was feeling before I saw Amanda. All my friends are amazed how calm I am about the move, they are so used to the old me they can’t quite believe the transformation. I can’t recommend Amanda highly enough.

Amazing results

I went to see Amanda suffering from serious anxiety and stress which caused sleeping problems. After the very first time using the audio I had the best night’s sleep I had had in months. I was unsure what to expect but Amanda is very charming and friendly she makes you feel at ease straight away. Amanda’s therapy has helped retrain my brain to use the logical part to deal with problems. I am calmer, sleeping better and feel able to cope with all that life throws at me. Amazing results and surprisingly quickly.

I made the trip on my own

I was able to get on a plane and make a trip to see my family on my own, before coming to see Amanda that would have been impossible due to my anxiety.

I would recommend her to anyone

I went to see Amanda recently as I was suffering with eczema caused by stress. I felt very relaxed talking about my life and family. She made me realise that certain events in my life were not my fault and to understand other people’s way of thinking or acting.
The techniques she showed me in times of stress or anxiety and the treatment was most helpful, I found the EFT tapping especially useful. I would recommend her to anyone with similar problems.

I feel like my old self again

When I went to see Amanda for the first time I was in a very difficult place, Amanda was recommended to me by a very dear friend. I was incredibly scared about everything so even doing something to help myself was a challenge. Amanda was so gentle, kind and supportive and even managed over the weeks to make me laugh. For me I am now in a much better place and that is mainly down to help from Amanda so a massive thank you I feel like my old self again.
