Does anxiety or stress rule your life?
Do you find that you easily feel overwhelmed, close to tears or panic?
Does negative thinking override your thoughts?
So many of us struggle wth the demands of everyday life. And some of us struggle more than others, because we are all individuals. I believe that all of us need a little bit of help sometimes. Hypnotherapy can be that little bit of help.
Whether you want to get rid of a habit or behaviour, improve yourself, or need support during a difficult period in your life, I can help.
Because I tailor my approach to your specific need, I can help with a huge variety of symptoms. Here are some of the most common issues I regularly work with:
Do you find that you are worrying about different things all the time? Are your thoughts stopping you do things that yoou would really like to do? Something you feel you have no control over which affects your life and the lives of those you care about? I have so many people coming to see me because they know that they are worrying about things but they really don’t know why or how to stop it. Anxiety can strike at so many different times and in different ways.
And then the circle starts again because people worry about the next anxiety attack. All this leads to diminished life experiences and possibilities. People missing out because they worry about what might be, instead of grasping the opportunity and giving it a go.
Using hypnotherapy, I can help you to understand where your anxiety stems from and then work with you to free you of those negative thoughts.
In today’s society, we are subject to daily situations which can present continual low-grade stress – bad news, unrealistic deadlines, demanding job, commuting and traffic jams, illness. that low-grade stress can gradually build and then one additional ‘thing’ can just seem to be too much to bear.
If you experience real feelings of panic that overwhelm you in certain circumstances, then I can help.
I use lots of different techniques to start to understand what causes your stress, and then reprogram the negative thought patterns , enabling you to stay calm and take back control of your feelings.
Confidence and self-esteem
Are you lost for words when you need to talk?
Do you feel invisible when you need to impress?
Know that you feel hesitant when you need to take a bold step?
Confidence can often feel like something that everyone else has. We can end up thinking why can’t I be more like so and so? But we can never know how they are feeling inside. They may be just as nervous as you, only better at dealing with it! Whether you are timid at work or insecure in romantic situations, I can work with you to identify what’s subconsciously eating away at your self-esteem and build on the confidence you do have within you.
Some people seem to find it naturally easy to stand up in front of a crowd and deliver a speech. For others it can be a real challenge. Sweaty palms, pounding heart, feeling sick and hyperventilating are common reactions to the need to make a speech.
Many people struggle with public speaking, often due to a fear of being judged. We can work together to understand the reasons for the fear. Then, I can help you conquer your nerves so that you can give a calm, confident and focused performance. It doesn’t matter whether you are giving a business presentation, facing an interview panel, or saying your wedding vows. Hypnotherapy can help.
Phobias are far more common than you may realise. It’s estimated that more than 11% of people have some kind of irrational fear.
A phobic or fear response is something that is intented to protect us from danger. But sometimes that protection is misplaced. If you have a fear of something that is restricting your life, I can help you re-train this part of your mind to react differently. The most common phobias are:
- Fear of flying
- Claustrophobia (fear of confined places)
- Fear of sickness
- Fear of insects
- Fear of heights
- Fear of needles
- Fear of dentists
- Fear of pregnancy
- Fear of water.
