For example: stress, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, high blood pressure, worrying, palpitations.
Anxiety, panic and stress are the body’s natural reaction to a perceived threat or danger. This is a normal ‘flight or fight response’. Our emotional brain deals with this by releasing Adrenaline into our system and prepares our body to physically react. In the correct circumstances, where we can physically take flight or fight action our bodies will use the Adrenaline and hormones and our bodies will recycle the residual left over to bring us back to a homeostatic level.
However, prolonged anxiety, panic and stress cause the body to be flooded with Adrenaline and hormones which accumulate. This damages internal organs, causes stomach and digestion problems, damages the immune system, which in turn leads to serious illness.
If you sometimes feel that things are getting on top of you and that you are unable to cope – perhaps you have a demanding job, or are going through a stressful life event such as illness or moving home. Cognitive Hypnotherapy is very effective at helping you overcome these problems by re-educating the unconscious mind in a variety of different ways. I can teach you some very simple yet very effective self-hypnosis and NLP techniques that you can use at home in order to reduce your stress levels, and increase your ability to relax whenever you need to.
