Stress at work is common. It is on the rise as job security is not as stable as it once was, and this uncertainty can only lead to more stress and anxiety.
Some forward-thinking businesses have noticed this trend, and are slowly introducing measures to help their employees cope with anxiety and stress.
Cutting down on substantial levels of stress at work isn’t just good sense for business as it has a beneficial effect on employees but it can also help staff morale and improve productivity.
One of the most common areas that people come to see me about is areas of life connected to stress and, very often, stress at work.
Workplace stress can manifest itself in a variety of different ways – not just in the office but also at home and socially.
I am always happy to provide talks to businesses on stress and how it can cause issues, why it happens and steps we can take so it does not become a problem.
I can also provide individual, tailored sessions to explain why we sometimes respond negatively to stress and how hypnotherapy can help.
There are parts of our brains that are very adept at dealing with the perception of threats and our negative reactions to stress are an evolutionary coping mechanism which might not be helpful in our day to day lives.
People who struggle with stress in the office may find they have anger issues or that they struggle with sleep patterns – perhaps becoming insular in their thinking.
Hypnotherapy helps because it does not focus on a problem but looks to a series of solutions which help to quickly propel us towards a brighter future.
A key part of hypnotherapy is the safe use of a trance state which is a natural way to aid in the reduction of stress so that, after a number of sessions, the client can start to feel better placed to cope with life.
Some clients have also found that it helps to improve their thinking ability, productivity and confidence – both in and out of the workplace.
By emptying the stress bucket, we allow the brain a greater degree for flexibility in being able to think positively, act positively and interact in a productive fashion.
hypnotherapy can also be used to help to take control over other aspects of our lives, ranging from stopping smoking through to reducing phobias and weight management.
