Using Hypnotherapy to Relieve Stress at Work
Whether we like it or not we take work home and we take our problems to work. The two are rarely mutually exclusive. In fact, 435,000 employees in the UK believe they suffered with workplace stress in 2009/10. Are you having problems with:
- High workload or long unsociable hours
- Low mood and irritability
- A feeling of not being able to cope
- Headaches or pains elsewhere in the body
- Workplace bullying or clashes with colleagues or bosses.
Benefits of using Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy can be used to address the negative attitudes, thoughts and behaviours that affect our performance at work. It is one of the most effective ways of communicating with the subconscious to make these changes permanent.
What needs to be understood though is that it is not the stressful event, awkward colleague or upcoming meeting which are in themselves stressful – it is our thoughts about these things which determine whether they will be affect us negatively or not. Hypnotherapy cannot hep you love a bad job or lazy colleague but it can help you cope more easily and feel more positively about your situation.
Controlling your work stress
A hypnotherapist can help identify the root cause of stress or anxiety, whether it is a situation, a physical issue, a past experience or a relationship. They will then set you a goal of asking how you wish to feel, how you would like to be, and things that you would chose to do in your life if you were free of anxiety.
Using a tried and tested blend of hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and stress management techniques, I will help you feel more confident and more relaxed in situations that have previously challenged you. Many people say that they are calmer and can think more clearly after just a few sessions.
Clients who have experienced side effects of stress such as insomnia, find that they are sleeping much better and as a result are able to work much more effectively.
