Teachers at crisis point - helping teachers de-stress

Teachers are passionate about their work and put their heart and soul into what they do. However they often feel burned out by the stress associated with teaching. Pressures of the job are intense and draining. Teachers have to constantly get up in front of a class and put on a performance often with challenging groups. Most then take home admin, marking and preparation and work continues until late at night.

By the time the alarm goes off the following morning, they can find themselves lying in bed with limbs that feel like lead, stomach churning, nauseous, with sensations of fear and hopelessness.

About 80% of teachers complain of stress at work and thousands leave the profession every year – predominantly due to stress. Stress is destroying teachers' lives and that of their families. Teachers need to learn to replenish themselves, this is essential whether they want to be the best teachers they can be or if they want to feel revitalised enough to be able to make changes in their lives.

The good news is that hypnotherapy techniques are a truly effective means of stress management and of reducing stress. Hypnotherapy, particularly Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) is one of the most effective treatments for helping with stress management.

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy combines Hypnosis with established Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques providing a most effective intervention. Cognitive Bevavioural Hypnotherapy can help you to develop deeply calming relaxation techniques, teach you self-hypnosis and give you the skills to provide more helpful and realistic ways of thinking. CBT can be a lengthy therapy lasting many months, however CBH has the advantage of being, normally, a genuinely brief therapy, where the client feels as if they are playing an active part in making the changes they require.

In short, hypnotherapy can give you back your life and create a better future.
