Everyone needs a certain amount of pressure to motivate them towards achieving goals. But, too much pressure that exceeds individuals' perceived ability to cope becomes stress. The consequential feelings of distress can negatively affect not only our physical health (leaving us prone to anxiety and depression, as well as to physical conditions such as heart disease, back pain, digestive problems and headaches) but all aspects of life and our enjoyment of it.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) defines stress as "the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressure or other types of demand placed upon them". Stress can result from any number and combination of sources such as work demands, insecurities, family expectations and financial concerns. Whatever the cause, prolonged exposure to stress can leave people feeling unwell, tense, irritable, intolerant of criticism, angry, out of control and unable to cope, sleep, switch off or relax. Often emotions, perceptions of self-confidence and feelings of self-worth are also affected.

We take a holistic approach to helping individuals manage stress more effectively, using deep relaxation hypnosis and stress hypnotherapy to counteract the negative physical and psychological effects of stress. With hypnotherapy counselling, individuals' specific stressors/perceived threats are identified and explored and constructive approaches to overcoming them taken.
