The article points out that we often think of stress as a negative force, something that can lead to nervous breakdowns and heart attacks. Hypnotherapist’s try to council clients to not just think of stress as a negative factor, but also as a positive force. It is stress that pushes us to achieve our goals and do better. However, we often increase our stress levels by worrying about stress.
Hypnotherapy for stress management allows the patient to understand stress for what it is. The hypnotherapy works on rules of relaxation and positive reinforcements that help you to achieve a calmer state of mind. It also works in helping the patient realise what is causing the stress and in turn will push them towards dealing with it. Techniques such as auto suggestion will instruct the patients subconscious to deal with the problem in a more appropriate manner instead of becoming hectic and stressed as they once would have. It helps you to remember things that make you happy and encourages your mind to by pass the negative places and go straight to the happy ones!
