Everyone knows stress is bad for you and can lead to emotional and physical problems. Friends may say you just need to relax. Maybe you tried meditation, exercise or yoga, and it didn't work -- you're stressed out and the nagging internal voice never stops. What do you do?
Using hypnosis, we work with the subconscious to get rid of stress so it no longer causes problems. The result is a positive mental attitude, improved focus and a happier life. It’s safe, completely natural and often more effective than other approaches.
Stress is the body’s response to a troubling situation. Essentially it’s the “fight or flight” response over an extended period of time. In small amounts, stress can improve performance but in larger doses it causes a lot of problems.
Long term stress can result in decreased quality of life, disease and bad habits. Usually, the bigger the emotional response to a stressfull situation, the greater the impact on health and well-being.
There are two kinds of problems associated with stress. The first is physical problems caused by long term stress. These are things like:
Research also indicates that a number of other chronic immune system problems like Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis are likely caused by long-term stress.
The second category is bad habits resulting from the subconscious’ attempt to cope with the situation. Common problems include:
Hypnosis helps by reducing the impact of the past situations driving the stress response, and changing bad habits the subconscious uses to cope with a stressful situation.
Often changes in one area have a positive impact on another. For example, it’s common for those struggling with stress to have eating problems. Eliminating the stress response often reduces, and sometimes eliminates, the eating problem.
No. Often, the conscious mind thinks it knows the cause but it’s sometimes wrong. Thankfully, the subconscious knows exactly what the cause is. All we have to do is ask in the right way.
Hypnosis is very effective at reducing stress and its impact on health and bad habits. Most underlying causes of stress are quickly addressed in just a few sessions – usually 3 or less.
The physical impact of long term stress for things like Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which can result in damage to the digestive system, can take a little longer because it may be necessary to support the body as it heals. Sometimes additional sessions are needed but often a custom CD, and a little time, is sufficient.
Hypnosis quickly produces results. I expect to see changes every session but sometimes it takes a little more. Regardless, you pay for results and I want to make sure you get them. So, if you don’t see noticeable changes after 3 weekly sessions, then subsequent sessions are free until you do.
Yes, the overwhelming majority of the time. Occasionally a client backslides but it’s quite rare. Usually it means there's another minor thing we need to address. Usually, an additional session is all that’s needed to fix the problem.
