Stress Reduction

How can Hypnotherapy help me reduce stress?

Stress and anxiety often go hand in hand as they are both forms of mental and emotional pressure which can impact your well-being. We all react to stress in different ways and in fact many cases of stress can be useful. If you need to deal with a deadline for example that feeling of stress may enable you to finish your work quickly as it gives you a sense of urgency and motivates you. Some people thrive on dealing with stress on a day to day basis but if more and more stress is piled on you then it can impact your health and emotional state. At Hypnotherapy Plus we can teach you ways in which you can control stress and anxiety so that your health and emotional state are not compromised.

The symptoms of stress are sometimes ignored but very common, and over a period of time they can be debilitating and affect your physical health, your emotional wellbeing which then puts pressure on your work and relationships.

All of the following, and more, can create a feeling of stress in an individual:

  • Illness

  • Work

  • Money Worries

  • Driving Tests

  • Divorce

  • Bereavement

  • Family

  • Relationships

  • Exams


Sometimes this stress may be short lived such as the build up to a driving test. With this scenario our therapists at Hypnotherapy Plus can teach you coping mechanisms and confidence building so that you reduce your nerves. Once the test is over then the stress will disappear quickly and no longer impact how you feel. Longer term stress however may gradually creep up on you bit by bit piling on the pressure so that you feel you are unable to cope any longer. In the case of longer term stress our techniques are tailored so that you are able to think about your triggers in a different way so that you feel calmer.

Just some of the symptoms of stress include:

  • Headaches

  • Tiredness

  • Anxiety

  • Sleep Problems

  • Impaired Judgement

  • Increased drinking/smoking

  • Depression

  • Irritability

  • Loss of Confidence

  • Illness


Spotting the early signs of stress and making lifestyle changes are important as prolonged stress can cause more serious illnesses.
