Stress Management with Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy
Everywhere you look, there’s some new reason to get stressed out. Advertising tells us to be prettier, smarter, and better. The news media cautions us against all kinds of dangers. And the sheer amount of information, and the speed with which we receive it, presents us with a constant stream of stressful situations.
But these situations are not the true source of our stress. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy wouldn’t work if this were the case! When we feel drained or “stressed” it is actually due to our reaction to a perceived challenge, not due to some inherent power that the situation has to make us feel upset. Debilitating conditioned reactions such as high blood pressure, chronic anxiety, irritability and anger are embedded in our subconscious mind.
The seeds from which these reactions sprout were planted long ago in childhood. For this reason, our stress reaction doesn’t respond to our conscious desire to change it. Hypnotherapy enables your conscious mind to communicate its desires to be healthier and more relaxed, in a way that the subconscious mind will readily accept. Through hypnosis, stress loses its hold. Your conscious mind tells your subconscious to change your reactive and self-defeating stress responses to healthier, nurturing ones.
Hypnotherapy also makes it possible for the subconscious to eradicate the deepest roots of the stress response. If you’re under stress, hypnosis can help you establish new, healthy responses that are just as effortless, powerful and effective as your old, negative ones used to be! Schedule a private session
