If you are considering hypnosis for stress relief, then have you considered how hypnosis combined with CBT could be even more effective in helping you learn to reduce stress? Based in East Cork, I work with clients both in person and online, helping them to reduce stress in their lives, relax more and feel happier.

Stress can have a huge impact on your how you think, feel and behave.
Stress can feel different to different people but it could present in problems sleeping, muscle tension, irritability, appetite loss, inability to concentrate or headaches. Chronic stress can lead to anxiety, depression and physical health problems. Stress is very common in today’s fast-paced world, as many people struggle to successfully manage a healthy work/life balance.

We know that sometimes a little stress can be useful, as it can help us perform better. However, too much stress and it becomes overwhelming and we feel as though we can’t cope. The fight or flight response is your body’s way of getting into gear when presented with a threat; it sends hormones pumping through your body and gets you ready to act. However, if your fight or flight response is triggered regularly by everyday stressors, then your body is in an almost constant state of stress.

There is evidence to support the use of hypnosis for managing stress and reducing stress reactivity (Fisch et al, 2020; Slonena et al, 2021). A recent study has shown that both mindfulness and CBT based approaches delivered online can be effective in reducing stress (Barrett, 2021). With cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy, I can teach you how to cope better with stress. You will learn better coping skills and learn how to become your own therapist. I take an evidence-based approach, using only techniques that have a solid evidence base. I use a combination of hypnotherapy, CBT, mindfulness and relaxation techniques to help you build your resilience to stress. I will also teach you self-hypnosis which has been proven to be very effective in managing stress (Eason & Parris, 2019). Are you ready to start feeling more calm and relaxed?
