The HSE has recently reported that 45% of all working days lost due to illness were a result of stress related conditions, such as depression and anxiety. Between 2015 and 2016 these equalled 11.7 million in Britain.
Our lives can be supercharged and high pressured. With technology intruding into our downtime with greater determination it is little wonder that we are now seeing the damaging results.
But stress, anxiety and depression are not just statistics that impact work performance. For an individual suffering from these conditions the impact on their daily lives, emotional wellbeing and even physical fitness can be severe. Most suffer in silence putting on a brave face and store up toxic thoughts and debilitating emotions. It is lonely and difficult to manage and the following list gives only a handful of the conditions and complications that can result:
- Lack of sleep and insomnia
- Lack of interest in life
- Panic Attacks
- Digestion issues and IBS
- Migraine or tension headaches
- Weight gain / loss
- Impatience or irritability.
Hypnotherapy can be highly beneficial in supporting people with stress, anxiety and depression. Unlike a lot of other therapies, Solution Focused Hypnotherapists focuses on the present and the future (where are you now and where do you want to be) rather than the past. For that reason, the support offered is positive, relaxing, non-intrusive and highly effective.
I never imagined I’d be saying this… I really like hypnotherapy. I thought it was a bit “woo” (conceptually) and put it in the same category as crystals and tie die, but it’s actually really beneficial. My mind is so much calmer thanks to the sessions I’ve done. Thanks Paul for helping me to avoid falling into stress and anxiety.

You will get a FREE Relaxation Track to listen to at home to help you start on your way to recovery and we can work together to create a bespoke treatment plan based upon the goals and targets you decide.
If you are suffering from anxiety, stress or depression please fill out the contact form below outlining your particular concerns and I will get back to you. You may want an initial consultation in one of my clinics in London or Crawley, or just a greater understanding of how hypnotherapy can support stress… Sometimes, just understanding a little about how the brain works is enough to start on the road to recovery.
