Hypnosis for Stress and Anxiety

Our subconscious mind tries to keep us safe by using the fight, flight, or freeze response to deal with issues, as it has done since ancient times. 

Anxiety and stress can lead to depression, which is a freeze response that shuts us down mentally to protect us from overwhelming stimuli. 

Stress can also disrupt our REM sleep, which is essential for resolving daily challenges. If this persists, stress levels can accumulate, making it harder to deal with additional stressful situations and increasing anxiety. 

Elevated levels of stress hormones, such as cortisol, can trigger unhealthy behaviours and physical changes that can lead to disease. Some people use alcohol to cope with anxiety, but this further reduces REM sleep and exacerbates the issue.

To address stress and anxiety, NLP and hypnotherapy can be used to work with the unconscious mind, reduce the intensity of associated memories, and find healthier ways to experience the world. 

Breath-work can also be effective in activating the parasympathetic nervous system, which calms down the body and reduces stress, anxiety, and fear. For more information on how we can help, please refer to the "How We Can Help" links below.
