How can hypnotherapy reduce my stress and anxiety?

Your brain is unable to distinguish between stress which is real or that which is created by what we are thinking, rather than what has actually happened.

Hypnotherapy is very powerful and can help you with your stress and anxiety as it is not generally the situation itself which causes your stress, but your reaction to the situation which causes you stress and anxiety.

Hypnotherapy can help you to change your negative thoughts and make positive changes in order to manage your stress by altering your reaction to stressful situations.

Hypnotherapy can help you to overcome issues such as:

Public Speaking

Does the fear of giving a presentation at a staff meeting or to clients make your legs turn to jelly?

Does your mouth dry up every time you think about your speech?

Maybe you are the Father of the Bride, Groom or Best Man and are terrified of speaking in front of your family and friends?

Hypnotherapy can help you to overcome the stress and anxiety you may feel at the very thought of public speaking.

Exam and Test Nerves

Do you have an exam or test looming ahead of you?
Do you worry that you may fail and have to re-sit your exam or test?

If you experience any of the following symptoms, hypnotherapy can help you to overcome them:

  • Butterflies in your stomach
  • Feeling anxious or nauseous
  • Dry mouth
  • Trembling or sweaty hands
  • Your mind goes blank
  • Unable to concentrate
  • Lack of confidence in your own ability
  • A feeling of failure
  • Excess perspiration

Nail Biting

Nail biting can be compulsive and very often you are unaware you are biting your nails until you look down at your hands.

Mostly nail biting is used to relieve stress, anxiety, boredom and tension, however, it leads to frequent mouth and nail infections, dental problems which affect your teeth and gums, misshapen nails and bleeding cuticles.
