Stress Management

More and more individuals are being diagnosed with stress with family, friends, colleagues and employers alike not always having the answers.  We here at David Mclean Hypnotherapy however can help you tremendously with stress management.

                Lets initially discuss exactly what it is.  In its infancy, stress can be as little as a feeling of too much pressure at work, this, generally speaking, will subside when the deadline is met or the contract is won with no long term effects.  A more continued exposure to stressful situations such as self induced pressure or anxiety brought on by prolonged external environmental or social factors that never seem to let up, can nevertheless, provide much angst and emotional problems leading to feelings that you can no longer cope.

                It can unfortunately manifest itself in a physical manner as well as an emotional way in the form of a headache, a feeling of tenseness, a change in appetite (eating more or less) and/or disruptive sleeping patterns.

                Hypnotherapy is a fantastic aid in the reduction of stress, when you visit the practice, we explain its foundations, its link to anger, anxiety and depression and of course, importantly, how to cope better with it.  We work with clients with stress usually for 10 to 12 sessions and at the end, the individual is firstly, better equipped to recognise their own specific triggers, secondly understands how it was created in the first place therefore how to avoid those situations in the future and finally, given the motivation and coping mechanisms to act positively, think in a positive way and interact with other people in a positive way.
