We live in a society where often great demands and responsibilities are placed upon us and when we are asked to more than we can realistically manage we begin to feel overloaded. This can have serious consequences on our life, health and well-being if we do not address the underlying, hidden or known issues.
When we begin to feel over-anxious and experience symptoms of stress it can cause us to experience any of the following:
- Racing heartbeat
- Shortness of breath
- Chest tightness
- Dry mouth
- Butterflies in stomach
- Urge to pass urine/empty bowels
- Panic attacks
- Inner tension
- Fear of losing control
- Irrational dread that something catastrophic is going to happen (such as blackout, seizure, heart attack or death)
- Feelings of detachment
- Phobias and fears
Our natural reaction to anxiety and stress causes us to release cortisol – a stress related hormone that gives us the ‘fight or flight’ response. Prolonged exposure to cortisol or any other stress hormone such as adrenalin can cause:
- Memory problems
- Weakened immune system
- Weaker bones
- Increased blood pressure
- Reduce fertility
A personalised course of hypnotherapy or EFT can help you to identify the root of your stress or anxiety, whether it is a personal or work situation; a physical situation; a relationship issue or past experience. A course of hypnotherapy can make you feel calmer, more confident and more relaxed in situations that previously challenged you. Many people say they have better clarity of thought and can see things more clearly, even finding decision making easier. You don’t have to manage alone, for the sake of your health!
