Clinical Therapy to overcome Stress
When we experience stress the hypothalamus triggers the release of powerful hormones such as cortisol, norepinephrine, and adrenaline.
How it works
Everyone has feelings of stress at some point in their life. It is normal to feel stressed about something but if we live for extended periods of time in this stressful state then the consequences for our health can be extreme..
Stress fosters anxiety and fear, producing anger and guilt, creating chaos within relationships and playing an important role in depression and other difficulties.
Hypnotherapy can treat this condition efficiently and have lasting results.
You are under stress if you are experiencing:
- Low energy
- Aches, pains, and tense muscles
- Chest pain and rapid heartbeat
- Upset stomach, including diarrhoea, constipation and nausea
- Frequent colds and infections
- Loss of sexual desire or ability
Stress is the feeling of being under too much mental or emotional pressure. If you are unable to cope with that pressure it turns into stress. People have different ways of reacting to stress, so a situation that feels stressful to you may be motivating to someone else.
City-life can cause stress, particularly work, relationships and money problems. Any of the signs described above can affect how you feel, think, behave and how your body works.
Stress was and is an important defence mechanism, as it is responsible for the “fight or flight” response to protect us from danger situations. If in ancient times stress was important when coming across a wild animal, nowadays the way our brain perceives danger is different. Being stuck in the traffic and missing that important meeting is perceived as danger. However, even if the stress is activated there is not fight or flight, and the stress stays with you.
Stress is not an illness itself, but it can cause serious problems if it is not addressed. It's important to recognise the symptoms of stress early. Recognising the signs and symptoms of stress will help you figure out ways of coping and save you from adopting unhealthy coping methods, such as drinking or smoking.
There is little you can do to prevent stress, but there are many things you can do to manage stress more effectively, such as changing the ways your brain perceives what is important to you. Hypnotherapy not only allows to relax and calm down but also identify the root of your stress, correct it until you become stress free.
