Are you struggling with that self made mountain of life?

Updated: Jan 27, 2020

It’s normal to feel overwhelmed when you are multitasking, causing you the feeling of anxiety.

If we didn’t have this anxiety then we would not make changes, it’s like a warning system for our mind and body, we need to listen to it and make changes before it gets worse. Maybe you start getting anxious about work, and then this is a signal that things need to change, so take action and change it. If we don’t have anxiety we will not know what is right and wrong, and then benefit from the change. Anxiety can actually protect us sometimes, by showing us that things need to change. This is ok short term but harmful long term to you for your well being mentally and physically by not changing the anxiety manifests and becomes a huge part of your existents.

Long term stress and anxiety can show in many different ways in you, and maybe you didn’t know that these problems were linked to your anxiety.

  • Weight Loss

  • Weight Gain

  • Loss of sleep

  • Pain in muscles and joints

  • Lack of confidence

  • Panic attacks

  • IBS

  • Dizziness

  • Loss of libido

  • Heart racing

  • High blood press

  • The list is endless......

How do you stop this feeling of anxiety you ask yourself, well it’s all about investing in yourself. There is no magic pill, you can go to the doctors and they can give you many different anti-anxiety medicines, and you do feel worse before you feel better. Sometimes you just feel like life is in a daze, but is this helping you? By taking that pill, does not address what caused you to have anxiety in the first place. I know that sometimes people need to have the medicine because there have been unforeseen stress in their life. But if that stress and anxiety are caused by social events, feeling and behaviours of others, working environments’ etc. then you can make changes and reduce your anxiety. By tackling, anxiety can reduce down the symptoms.

We are naturally built to cope with high levels of stress and anxiety over a short period, however, if the stress and anxiety become long term then our minds and body start to break down in different ways as a coping mechanism, emotional eating, not socialising anymore, irritable bowel syndrome, panic attacks.

So what if you don’t want to take a pill for your anxiety, what can you do then? It's about managing your expectation. Sometimes, we can’t see the wood for the trees. We are just in a blind panic, never knowing what to do first, or seeing your problem mountain grow more and more.

It’s about taking action, if we talk about making changes but never actually taking action with it, that anxiety will never change for the better, it will get worse because now you know you need to make the change but you are not doing anything about it, can you feel that knot in your stomach getting tighter just thinking about it.

Hypnotherapy makes you relaxed and then helps clear out negative thoughts experiences and behaviours by talking to your subconscious mind. Your conscious mind has already decided it wants to change, so subconsciously you let yourself relax and then take on board the suggestions for change in your life. Hypnosis is not going to do something against your will; your conscious and unconscious mind always protects you and if you are not in agreement with the suggestions then it will not work for you. Only if you want to make the change will it allow you to be helped.

Results vary from person to person, everyone is different. Some people see changes immediately by being more relaxed, feel more positive and in control of their life, some people may need a few sessions and release more anxiety. It really depends on the person and how deeply imbedded their anxiety and stress was. If you think that we have over 60,000 thoughts a day and most of them are negative, the more negativity we have the longer it takes to release this.

Why not try hypnotherapy and see how easy it is to get your life back the way you want it to be, more confident, more in control and more social.
