Some stress in life can be good for us and help us to focus and achieve. In the short term, stress can be useful to enable us to do our best in a situation, and access hidden tools or talents. However, if stress becomes long-term or chronic, this can be a big problem…
It is becoming more and more recognised within the medical profession that stress can lead to or exacerbate a wide variety of conditions and illnesses. A prolonged or chronic amount of stress in one’s life can indeed make us ill. It can also lead to other issues such as:
- poor sleep
- high blood pressure
- negative thoughts
- negatively forecasting the future
- negative thoughts towards yourself
- tightness in chest
- stomach or digestive problems
- low immunity
- headaches or migraines
- tension in the muscles
- low mood
- crying or feeling tearful
- feeling irritable, impatient, or angry
- unwanted habits – nail biting, skin picking, hair pulling, etc.
- obsessive behaviours
- and much more…
At The Observatory Practice we understand how stress can negatively impact your life.
We offer a FREE Initial Consultation where we can discuss how you are experiencing stress, and the symptoms of stress, in your life. We will take the time to explain how the brain works, and why we experience certain symptoms and feelings when our stress levels are high.
We will talk about how hypnotherapy can help, and explain the gentle, effective techniques we use to help you feel better, manage stress, and put you back in control of your life.
We will also give you a relaxation track/MP3 to listen to at bedtime to help improve your sleep patterns, and aid in relaxing your body and mind to reinforce the progress of therapy.
