Tapping and hypnosis for stress

Hypnotherapy Edinburgh

Am I stressed?

If you are looking for help with stress relief, then chances are you already know the answer to that question!

However, here are some further questions that can help you decide you need help…

Do you have trouble sleeping?

Is it a struggle to focus and concentrate?

Do you find it hard to retain information?

Does it feel like your mind is on overdrive and it’s impossible to switch off?

Have you been reaching for sugar to keep you going?

Are you drinking more alcohol than usual as a way to relax you?

Do you feel overwhelmed, like you are just keeping your head above water?

If you found yourself answering yes to any of these questions, chances are you are stressed and need help.

Stress is part of being human and it is natural to experience feeling stressed from time to time when the pressure is on and you have lots of plates to keep spinning.

The body can cope with short bursts of stress, and sometimes a little stress can focus the mind to get something done. However if stress is becoming a recurring event for you or you have chronic stress, then it is time to take action and get help.

Stress was only ever designed to be short term.  Think back to hunter gatherer days and you needed the bodies in built stress response – known as the fight and flight response – to survive.

In todays world, threats to your survival come in the form of managers, delayed trains, financial worry, redundancy, relationship issues or illness to name a few.
