We live in such a pressured world! The average adult has so many pressures on them to perform and this can be completely overwhelming. Have you considered how hypnotherapy can help?
If you are a parent you will be judged, often by complete strangers, about your ability as a parent. There will be pressure for your children to perform well, behave well, eat well, be kind, be sociable - and that’s all down to you.
If you are an employee you will have deadlines, targets, job security and much more, putting increasing pressure on you. Some jobs are constant high pressure whereas others are exhausting simply because they are so tedious.
If you have elderly parents you will be under the spotlight for how much support you give, the mental and physical state of your parent, the way they live, the way they dress, the way they manage their money. Sometimes it will be the authorities as judge, sometimes a sibling, a neighbour, a friend – and sometimes the parent!
It is dead easy to never be good enough and to feel under constant pressure!
If you find it difficult to switch off and find that you live with the constant negative chatter in your head then you could consider hypnotherapy.
A hypnotherapist can offer deep relaxation sessions but can also give you the tools to switch off that negative chatter, to take yourself into a relaxed state, to boost self confidence and reduce anxiety. It is also possible to come to terms with past events or to change your mindset so that you look at things differently. You may need help with sleep patterns or stress habits such as bruxism (teeth clenching/grinding), nail biting etc.
To find a hypnotherapist in your area use Google or one of the other search engines. You may find links to directories such as this or be directed to the General Hypnotherapy Register. Don’t forget too that personal recommendation is worth its weight in gold so ask around your friends and relatives. Find out as much as you can about the therapist by looking at their website, Facebook page or similar and check out their working hours. Speak to them on the phone and ask if they give a consultation before beginning a course of treatment. Often the consultation is free or the fee is deducted from the treatment costs.
Be honest with your hypnotherapist – they don’t need to know your life story but they do need honest answers to their questions so that they can plan an appropriate course of therapy for you.
Finally, work with your therapist not against them. Recognise that the work they do with you will be tailored for you but may take several sessions before you start to see results.
Long periods of stress may be detrimental to your health so take action now. Use hypnotherapy to take control of your health.
