Stress is part of normal ever day life and is the physical response you experience in your body when you feel threatened or your normal balance is upset. Stress is your body's way of protecting you, by helping you cope with the unusual, allowing you to rise to challenges and in times of emergency can even save your life. It is closely linked to anxiety and is your body's fight or flight response to anything it perceives as a threat. However, sometimes you can become overwhelmed by stress, feeling you can no longer cope, often you may not even notice your stress levels have been rising, instead accepting how you feel as being ‘normal'. In some cases the response mechanisms you have developed to cope with stress may no longer be beneficial or might even be holding you back in life on a day to day basis.

Prolonged bouts of stress can, like anxiety, manifest itself in many forms within your body including: muscle weakness, muscular pain, fatigue, poor appetite, insomnia, forgetfulness and general apathy. Stress is now recognised by the medical profession as being linked to many serious medical conditions including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart attacks, stroke and many other chronic conditions.

Hypnotherapy and effective coaching, can help you identify those areas of your life that are creating the stress. Then, through progressive relaxation and increased focus encourage your unconscious mind to re-programme your response to stress triggers. Hypnotherapy can help you to create and anchor calmer more positive states within you allowing you to develop a healthier more productive life style.
