Hypnotherapy can be useful in addressing some of the stressors associated with daily living. When you are relaxed and life is ticking on, your body’s stress-response system is usually self limiting. When a perceived threat has passed, your hormone levels return to normal. As adrenaline and cortisol levels drop, your heart rate and blood pressure return to baseline levels, and other systems resume their regular activities. But when pressures are always present and you constantly feel under attack, that fight-or-flight reaction stays turned on.
Hypnotherapy can reduce these ‘stress chemicals’ and bring the body back to balance. Regular sessions ease built up pressure and tension, helping you to learn how to look after yourself better.
Hypnosis is the initiation of a deeply relaxed state. The mind is guided away from the troubles of everyday life and into a place of tranquillity and peace. During this process, therapeutic suggestions are offered to encourage changes in attitude and behaviour, or relief from stress-related symptoms. This relaxation therapy is beneficial for both the mind and body.
Hypnotherapy provides a confidential and comfortable setting in which your mind and body can be safely filtered of tension and stress, easing you into a relaxing state of mind that you can take back to your busy life.
Hypnotherapy can help some people to relax and better manage their stress. You can try it yourself. Start by listening to my free relaxation audio recording which may help. It begins with a guided visualisation about a rose to help you relax. Your conscious mind is then invited to hand over to your subconscious mind to help you relax.
