Solution Focused Hypnotherapy for the Successful Management of Stress
When we are overwhelmed with stress, our bodies produce chemicals that give us that fight, flight or freeze response (e.g. Adrenaline, cortisol and other various neurotransmitters and stress hormones) – these chemicals are very useful when we are have a healthy deadline to meet or if we are doing an exam under time constraints, but not so great when we are living our everyday lives.
How the body reacts to stress at any given moment (either an immediate response when our life is in some sort of danger or crisis or to an event that may last over several days, weeks or months) is known to affect us both physically and mentally:
Physiological effects - symptoms such as churning of the stomach, rapid heartbeat, sweating profusely and perhaps even bowel issues.
Psychological effects – anger, depression & anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, difficulty maintaining healthy relationships, irritability, and insecurity issues.
Although stress can create chronic health issues such as tension headaches, migraines and Musculo-skeletal issues particularly of the neck and shoulders, prolonged periods of stress can also give rise to other more serious health issues such as coronary heart disease, type II diabetes, and certain types of cancer.
At Spirit of Calm we can most definitely help you cope with stress helping to eliminate many of the symptoms listed above allowing you to become more positive and healthier in both body and mind.
During your initial consultation we will discuss how the brain works and how we suffer in the way we do with stress and how we can help you overcome it.
The number of sessions required will depend on the level of stress you are experiencing, however we work relatively quickly in comparison to many other forms of talking therapy and you will see a difference in a relatively short period of time. We may be able to help you in 4- 6 sessions, perhaps more, it really depends on you as an individual and we will have a better picture during your initial consultation.
In the interest of social distancing due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all sessions will be carried out via Zoom.
