The terms ‘stress’ and ‘anxiety’ are sometimes used to mean the same thing. However, while anxiety is a response to perceived threats, stress is your body’s response to pressure. 
 
You are likely to feel stress in situations you have not experienced before, when you don’t know what to expect, feel out of control or when you feel personally challenged due to criticism, for example. 
 
Initially, you might feel the situation is threatening and be anxious. If the conditions continue you are likely to adapt to some extent. However, prolonged stress can be very bad for both your physical and mental health. Eventually, you might feel exhausted and even become seriously ill due to continuing stress. 
 
Solution focused hypnotherapy (SFH) will build your resilience to help you handle stress. It helps you focus on the positive aspects of life and let go of negative feelings caused by stressful events and situations. 

Common Symptoms 

Low energy. 
Headaches. 
Diarrhoea, constipation and nausea. 
Aches, pains, and tense muscles. 
Chest pain and rapid heartbeat. 
Insomnia. 
Loss of sexual desire and/or ability. 

Types of Stress 

 
Worry about the present and recent past and anticipation about future pressures can lead to acute stress. You might feel worried and have tension headaches, jaw pain, muscular pain or an upset stomach. Other symptoms can include anger or irritability, anxiety and depression. 
 
Your blood pressure and heartbeat might increase, your palms might sweat, and you could have palpitations, dizziness, shortness of breath or chest pain. 
 
With support your can put your experiences into perspective and improve your ability to relax and minimise the impact of stress in your life. 
 
You might experience acute stress frequently due to your personality or lifestyle. You might feel short-tempered, irritable, anxious and tense. You might describe yourself as having ‘a lot of nervous energy’. However, others might find you hostile or aggressive and your relationships could be affected. 
 
The symptoms of episodic acute stress can be extreme. You might need help to adjust your outlook, behaviour and lifestyle to avoid long-term health problems. 
 
Long-term chronic stress can lead to ingrained hopelessness that results in serious mental and physical health problems. 
 
However, with support, negative beliefs can be overturned. You can review your lifestyle and your choices and make positive changes that will help you to manage stress and improve your quality of life. 
Stress affects everyone from time to time but not all stress is bad. All of us have an inbuilt stress response, commonly known as fight or flight, which is designed to keep us safe in times of crisis. Chronic stress can affect us both mentally and physically, some people cope well with stress but it is vitally important to understand your limits thus avoiding more harmful health effects. 

Discovery Session 

During the Discovery Session we will spend time discussing your symptoms and how long you have been suffering from them, any medication that you are on and what you are aiming to achieve. We will also explore any ‘triggers’ that may bring on an episode to understand a little more. 
 
The session will also help me: 
 
Understand how your symptoms impact your daily life. 
Explain how the brain works and its influence on how you feel today. 
Explain how Hypnotherapy can assist in creating positive change. 
Set you on the road to recovery 
Ensure that you are happy to work with me 
 
I do not undertake any hypnotherapy in the first session but you will leave with access to an MP3 which you can use to relieve stress and build confidence. 
 
This is for you to keep even if you do not pursue further treatment with Genesis Therapy. 

The Treatment (Clinical Session) 

Solution focused hypnotherapy (SFH) is all about you and your goals. It encourages you to discover and use your inner resources based on a practical strategy that inspires change in a very short period of time. From the first session you will start to take back control. 
 
We will: 
 
Set actionable goals. 
Use Hypnosis for relaxation and guided visualisation. 
Use questioning techniques. 
Set Homework – MP3 and other exercises. 
Measure your progress. 
 
While the approach of SFH is client focused and encourages you to discover your own inner strength and resources, it’s important to note that you are not alone in this.  
 
You and I will work together as a team to move forward from what’s troubling you.
