A feeling of immense pressure, overwhelming anxious thoughts and feeling unable to cope with everyday situations. These are all examples of anxiety.
Anxiety effects everyone differently, some people are able to cope with whatever life throws at them and others can suffer from crippling panic attacks which devastate their life, others have terrible inner thoughts about the biggest and smallest of daily tasks. Both of which impact on the individual’s life and the lives of those around them.
Anxiety can lead to depression, can affect confidence, concentration and sleep patterns. It can also cause physical symptoms.
Stress is similar to anxiety but is a normal reaction to a threatening situation. Stress generally makes someone feel light headed, have a racing heart and a churning stomach. Stress and anxiety can also lead to addictions as a way of coping with the symptoms. Smoking, eating, drinking, and exercise the list is endless but any addiction can make an issue feel bigger and harder to deal with.
Chronic stress can lead to high blood pressure, which places extra strain on your heart and affect your immune system.
During hypnotherapy sessions we can look at techniques to help with both stress and anxiety working out together where it manifests from and giving you tools to enable you to deal with the situations you find yourself in.
