Stress & Anxiety


It’s such hard work being stressed and anxious all the time.

No wonder you feel so exhausted all the time. How did it all happen?

Well it did not just happen that’s for sure something is triggering your stress and anxiety but not necessarily what you think it may be. Often the real cause is something from way back or something that puts us in conflict with our values. How is it that two people will be confronted with the same frightening information yet each will react differently? One will look to make the best of the situation and may even find some positive aspect, whilst the other may be completely overwhelmed consequently suffering stress and anxiety. Yet the circumstances are the same.

There’s been a tremendous amount of research on what works and what doesn’t work for stress and anxiety. There is 40 years of research into the use of mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapy and how this is proven to work. We have known the value of hypnotherapy for many, many years. With the event of neurosciences and the ability to monitor what is happening inside the brain in real time we can definitively know those protocols that make a real difference to the collapsing of triggers, the cause of anxieties and stress and also the establishment of new synapses (the new positive connections) within the brain.

Whilst no single protocol is proven to work for all, simply because we are all individuals, we now know quite a number of different protocols. It’s simply guiding you and helping you in the way that is uniquely right for you. Whether that be hypnotherapy, mindfulness, cognitive behavioural therapy, (E.M.D.R.) eye movement desensitisation reprogramming, or indeed a combination of a number of things.

What is relevant, is what’s right for you.

The Answer is the skills we have learned from our past; But sometimes there are gaps in the way we think and our understanding or other memories that get in the way. The answers are different for each of us, but usually after listening to you and taking a proper case history the patterns emerge” THEN” we can plot a new way forward for you in a relatively short time.

Get your life back on track.
