Anxiety and Stress

We all know that life is full of situations that can cause stress. You have probably noticed that some people are able to easily manage these events, while others are easily overwhelmed. The people who do well under stress are no different than you, except that they have learned effective stress management skills. Using hypnotherapy to learn anxiety and stress management skills is one of the most important things you can do in life.

Stress has been linked to most health problems, including heart attacks and strokes. Being over-stressed can also lead to low work performance, sleep issues, absent-mindedness, decreased interest in life, addictions, and many other undesirable results.

On the other hand, people who respond well to stress and know how to prevent unnecessary anxiety are typically peak performers. Below are some results you can expect when using hypnotherapy and SFBT to help you ease stress and anxiety.

Being able to manage stress and anxiety effectively will:

  • Increase your energy and focus
  • Allow you to deal effectively with authority, roles and limits
  • Increase your tolerance to frustration during difficult circumstances
  • Let you adapt to change and move forward
  • Help you to develop a sense of belonging
  • Let you show friendliness, care, and love
  • Allow you to enjoy recreation
  • Permit you to relax and sleep better
  • Free your sense of humour and ability to laugh at yourself
  • Let you demonstrate a reasonable sense of independence and self-reliance

How will hypnotherapy and SFBT help with anxiety and stress?

Through hypnosis, which is a focused state of attention that increases suggestibility, you will be guided through exercises that help you learn how to adapt to stressful situations, resolve existing anxieties, and create new ways of looking at the world.

In a recent study, medical students who experienced hypnosis sessions for anxiety were able to significantly reduce exam-time stress. Furthermore, blood samples revealed that these students’ immune systems became stronger the more they practised the techniques.
