Relieve stress with hypnotherapy
Stress is all around us, every day it bombards us. Maybe you feel stressed when sitting in the middle of a traffic jam, when you’re late for an important appointment, or when you realise you forgot to pay a bill. It could be any annoying little stress trigger that we have to handle every day.
What about the larger issues? Relationship problems, reaching retirement, moving house, redundancy, divorce or the death of a loved. These things can all cause a great deal of stress and, sometimes, come when we least expect it.
The impression is that the feelings of stress come from outside sources when, in reality, it happens inside of us.
Symptoms of stress
When we feel as though we are under pressure, our blood pressure rises, our muscles tighten and our breathing accelerates. These physical symptoms are generally referred to as ‘fight’ or ‘flight’ responses. This is a term left over from prehistoric times when the caveman had to decide whether to stand and fight the woolly mammoth that was chasing him or just run away.
Dealing with stress
Unfortunately, today we don’t have those options. Each situation must be dealt with and that’s where the stress comes in. Some stress is unavoidable and is actually good for you. On the other hand, too much stress leads to troubles that can range from an upset stomach to anxiety attacks and even physiological problems.
Physical and mental signs of stress
What happens to us when we are stressed? Unfortunately, if we are under stress we tend to ignore warning signs like aches and pains in our bodies, whereas when a warning light comes on in our car we take it in to get it checked out straight away.
The long-term physical and mental signs of stress can include:
- Change of appetite – eating more or less
- Change of sleep patterns – lack of sleep or wanting to sleep too much
- Lack of concentration
- Clenching your teeth in your sleep
- Biting your nails and other repetitive habits
- An inability to make decisions
- Being irritable
- Being Irrational
- Increased dependence on food, sex or alcohol
Leaving stress untreated
If left untreated these symptoms can lead to many physiological issues like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), skin complaints, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis (MS), heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, catching illnesses like colds and flu, etc.

Stress is one of the main causes of death today. You might think that it is cancer, or heart disease, but how do you think they start? Stress is present in all areas of your life and you have probably become so used to it that you’re unaware of its constant presence.
Anxiety is stress that continues after that stressor is gone. Stress can come from any situation or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, nervous, or even anxious. What is stressful to one person is not necessarily stressful to another.
