Quick and Easy Stress Management

Living in modern life means that we all have to deal with stress. Sometimes this can be a positive force in our lives. It can motivate and get us going. However, sometimes stress can really get us down. Fortunately, there are plenty of tools out there to help us cope and deal with life’s pressures.

Here are a few tips to help you get through life’s stresses.

Stressed people naturally touch their forehead. This is because touching the forehead does actually relieve stress. Put two fingers on the boniest part above the eyebrows and think about whatever is causing you tension. You will be able to feel a pulsating underneath your fingers. When the pulsating has eased and you feel that it is difficult to think about the stress. Then you are finished.

Regard your emotional ups and downs as an avenue to learn and grow rather than as an enemy that must be combated. Getting angry at the stress only creates more dis-stress and makes you feel worse. Thanking it, even if you have no idea how it is going to help you to learn in the future is empowering. It gives you hope, which puts positive energy into the situation.

Vitamins C and B complex are the stress vitamins. When under pressure or emotional strain, take a higher dose of both than normal. They are both good for your adrenal glands, which produce your ‘fight, freeze or flight’ hormones. The glands can become exhausted under stress, and make you feel tired and even more stressed, an ever increasing circle of despare. These vitamins balance and calm the adrenal glands, allowing you to get back to your normal […]

Therapy maze

A guide to the therapy maze

How can you recognise which therapies are safe and who are the reputable practitioners? Here we guide you through the therapy maze.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

What is it?

Practical techniques are used to turn negative thoughts and actions into more positive ones.

How does it work?

The CBT therapist is a bit like a personal mental trainer – they set goals and give the client clear guidelines about how to achieve the changes they want.

The Claims

Clinical trials have shown it is very effective in treating phobias, anxiety, depression and compulsive disorders such as severe over-eating or obsessive cleanliness. Businesses swear by it for stress management. The Department of Health gives it their seal of approval.

The Pain

All therapy can bring unpleasant buried emotions to the surface and CBT is no exception. It is also very goal-oriented and some people may feel that it puts too much pressure on them to achieve results.

Who should do it

Particularly suitable for people with anxiety, phobias and depression. But if you are looking for an in-depth understanding of your relationships, this may not be the therapy for you.

Our expert says:

‘Research has shown that this therapy is very effective in helping people tackle their problems, be they phobias, stress, depression or compulsive behaviour. It is very problem-solving and can produce remarkable results.

‘The downside is that if you really don’t want to face your fears, the therapy itself might increase your anxieties.’ SP

Hypnotherapy

What is it?

Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation. Contrary to popular belief, you are not unconscious during hypnosis – but your conscious awareness operates at a different, deeper level.

How does it work?

Before clients enter the hypnotic state, they […]

Stress at work

Stress at work

Stress – at work & an employer’s duty!

Key points:

  • Stress is an adverse reaction to excessive pressure or demands
  • Stress can be caused by personal or work based pressures or a mixture of the two
  • Stress can affect people mentally – in the form of anxiety and depression – and physically – in the form of heart disease, back pain and alcohol and drug dependency.
  • HSE estimate that work-related stress costs about £3.7 billion a year
  • Employers have a legal duty to assess the risk of work-related stress and to take measures to control these risks
  • The government aims to work with employers, employees , trade unions and others in achieving a 20% reduction in the incidence of work-relates stress by 2010.

What is stress?

Stress is people’s natural reaction to excessive pressure and is experienced by everybody. When a person is faced with some kind of threat or alarm the body responds with physiological changes such as raised heart rate and blood pressure, accelerated breathing and an increased flow of blood to the muscles. These changes can help the body to respond to the threat and overcome it.

When the physiological changes produced by stress are excessive or continue their effects become detrimental. For example, many jobs are carried out in a complex set of circumstances and the causes of stress cannot be dealt with quickly, once and for all. Stress results from a perceived imbalance between the demands made on an individual, including self-imposed ones, and the personal and environmental resources available to meet those demands.

Causes of stress

Stress can be caused by a wide variety […]

Making an Appointment

Making an Appointment

If you’re interested in finding out what Hypnotherapy can do for you, I offer an initial 30 minute consultation, with no obligation to carry on with the treatment. This will allow me to talk you through what Hypnotherapy is able to achieve, you can ask

any questions you have, and we can establish what it is we are aiming to do in any subsequent sessions. See if you can get on with the sound of my voice by trying the FREE button below and listening to the free track on my download site. If you can then thats fine a face to face appointment or if your budget is tight then a download may help.

If you’re happy to carry on working with me, we can have an hour session of hypnotherapy directly afterwards, provided the diary allows – so you should plan for you initial meeting with me to be one and a half hours. Subsequent sessions will be one hour.

I do not usually see clients in the comfort of their own homes. This is usually because there are too many distractions and in some cases the very thing we are to work on is associated with the home environment in some way. I therefore use a Clinic Environment. However if you are nervous, I understand it may be a new experience for you so  it’s OK for a friend or relative to come along with you.

Appointments held during the normal working day, on weekdays, are £75 for one hour session (The first session is more likely to be of two hours – Same price though £75 so you get 1 extra […]
