Anxiety and Stress

Time pressure, negative thoughts and a hectic lifestyle causes a heightened stress response in the body

Anxiety and Stress are a natural part of the human experience.  Anxiety is a normal reaction to Stress. If, however, anxiety becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations then if you do not do something about it, it not only becomes  a burden you have to struggle with every day, but can also  make you physically ill and depressed.

Is your stress impacting on your progress at work?

Are you crippled with exam nerves?

Are you paralyzed with fear at the prospect of speaking in public?

Are you so shy that you avoid interacting with others?

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions then your mind and body may be telling you that there are unresolved thought-emotions that you need to uncover and understand. If you don’t you may fall into a cycle of stress, anxiety and depression which can leave you feeling weak and vulnerable.

Deal with your unresolved thoughts and emotions and
live your life to the fullest!

What is Mind-Body Balance?

Hypnosis and NLP works on the principle that your mind and body work together to create a healthy physical and mental balance.  Psychological or physical ill health has been known to occur when the harmonious balance of mind and body is upset.

 How you THINK and what you FEEL influences your PHYSICAL HEALTH

If a symptom (eg anxiety) continues to linger after it’s usefulness has ended, this is a sign that the mind and body are no longer working together in harmonious balance.  Understand the cause of your anxiety, what changes you need to make in your life,  learn techniques to choose your emotional state and put those anxiety attacks behind you.

 Approaches to Alleviating Anxiety

Attending for Hypnotherapy and Personal Life Coaching  helps to uncover the underlying causes for anxiety:-

What is triggering an anxiety attack?

Why is that trigger causing this reaction?

What patterns of thinking cause or exacerbate the symptoms?

The way our minds work is that the physical reaction – in this case anxiety – happens when old memories, emotions and feelings come to the surface.  You may have no conscious knowledge of what it is.  Attending for Hypnotherapy in Swindon may uncover these memories, allowing you to understand and release the emotions attached to them.  NLP affords  several techniques to access and anchor desired states.  This means that we can learn to choose our emotional state and enjoy feelings of control! Mindfulness Meditation helps us to become aware of our patterns of thought and is known to help us to reduce stress, anxiety and depression.  A wonderful Holistic Massage is very nurturing.  Holistic massage definition is to balance mind/body/spirit
