Self Hypnosis for Stress Management and Stress Relief





Stress is simply the way we feel when too much pressure is placed on us.

It is such a far reaching condition that its effects are thought to be felt in practically every kind of illness, every kind of disease.

Yet so few of us really have an effective stress management strategy in place in order to bring about the essential stress relief that we need.

A certain amount of stress, of course, can be beneficial. In small to moderate amounts, it really doesn't hurt and, indeed, may be necessary in order to motivate us into getting things done and prodding us into performing at our very best.

But when stress takes on too much of a driving, overpowering role, it can exact a real toll and have truly damaging effects on both our mental and physical health.

Such, unfortunately, is the case in many industrialised countries such as the UK, the US, Canada and Australia today, where the most common mental health issues are anxiety and depression and in which stress plays a major underlying role.

At work, stress can turn us into jittery, anxious and resentful workers, unable to function as we really should; while at home, stress can provoke marital conflict and problems with children.

Often, we are able to notice the signs of stress in others much easier than we can in ourselves.

Yet even if we are only too well aware that we are suffering from stress, few of us really know how to manage stress. We simply lack the stress management and stress relief strategies for dealing with and releasing it.

And so alcohol, drugs, tranquillizers and anti-depressants are regularly turned to in an attempt to escape from and cope with the often devastating and frequently incapacitating effects of stress. But such attempted remedies are far from being effective stress treatment; they are temporary at best and short sighted at worst.

Often they just serve to complicate and worsen an already difficult situation.

Yet there are other ways to deal with and manage stress that are really effective and far from harmful. Meditation, yoga, good nutrition and exercise are all classical and effective methods of stress busting. (In fact, we recommend that everyone engages in some form of regular exercise.)

But for sheer effectiveness and rapidity of results, few things can match the power of self-hypnosis for stress management and stress treatment.

This is because in hypnosis you can experience a state of being that is so far removed from stress that it has sometimes been referred to as 'a state of grace'.

Indeed, self-hypnosis offers a method of completely releasing stress, providing a valuable way - through post-hypnotic suggestion - to manage stress and anxiety. Correctly done, it can provide effective stress treatment and ongoing stress relief far beyond the actual self-hypnosis sessions.

And the amazing thing is that practising self-hypnosis needn't take forever.

Here in the UK, we teach people how to enter a deep trance state in a matter of seconds. Remaining in this wonderful, calm state of hypnosis for a few short minutes, they are able to let go of and free themselves from the harmful and potentially devastating effects of stress.

But you do not need to learn self-hypnosis from a hypnotherapist or a hypnotist. True, this is the easiest, most rapid and effective method of mastering the art of self-hypnosis since, correctly done, it is taught while actually in the trance state, but it is not the only way. There are many good books available that take you step by step through the process.

One thing is sure: time invested in learning and practising self-hypnosis pays very real dividends in the area of real stress management and stress relief. It is an extremely potent method that enables you to manage stress and is perhaps the most effective stress treatment there is.

If stress is something you find yourself struggling with on a regular basis, self- hypnosis - together with good nutrition and moderate exercise - is the very best stress management and stress relief tool you could use.

Pain Relief with Hypnosis Managing Chronic Pain with Hypnotherapy
Pain is something each one of us has experienced at some point in our life. Though few people actually welcome it, few would deny that it has an essential role to play in our survival. After all, without pain, we simply wouldn't be aware that tissue damage is taking place somewhere in our body and that we need to do something - fast. In any approach to pain, of course, we need to first check with a qualified doctor or other medical practitioner. It is essential that we get a proper medical...

How to Stop Procrastination with Hypnosis
There are probaly a few people sitting there right now thinking: 'What exactly is procrastination? Well, I'll just look it up later...' And in that thought is the answer. Procrastination is simply putting things off, delaying things - whether those things are important, family or work related. If you've ever left something to the very last minute, then you are engaging in the awful habit that is procrastination. If you have ever missed opportunities in life because of needless delay, or...

Migraine Headache Treatment with Hypnotherapy
As anyone who has ever experienced a migraine headache knows, migraine is so very much more than a bad headache. Often the migraine sufferer experiences severe mood alterations and changes in their behaviour hours or days before the actual onset of a migraine attack. Some people experience an 'aura', or flashes of light and they have real difficulty in focusing their eyes. The eyes become extremely sensitive to light and even minor noises and sounds become practically unbearable. The head...

Hair Loss Hair Loss Treatment
Losing your hair can seriously affect a person's self image and self esteem. With men, however, it is something that is more or less accepted as a natural occurrence by society at large. In fact, about fifty percent of the general population experience normal hair loss by the time they reach 50 years old. We may not like it, but sooner or later half of us are forced to accept it. Hair loss in women, however, is thought of in an entirely different context. Male pattern baldness is an all...

Teeth Grinding and Bruxism How Hypnotherapy Can Provide Help for Grinding Teeth
Clenching and teeth grinding - or Bruxism, to give it its medical name - is a condition that we see quite frequently here in our hypno-psychotherapy practice in the UK. Many times our clients are referred by dentists who understand that this behaviour is linked to psychological causes. Still other clients self-refer themselves for grinding teeth, calling to make an appointment when they realise that this is a problem that simply won't go away on its own. Very often the person suffering from...

Levels of the Mind Why Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Work
As a psychotherapist who uses hypnosis I must admit that sometimes it feels like I have two separate people in my big reclining therapy chair at the same time. The two certainly are related and they seem to know quite a bit about each other. They appear to have passed through some remarkably similar experiences. But they just don't seem to communicate very well with each other. One person is entirely rational and logical; they analyze and compare, measure and debate. When I speak with these...

Hypnotherapy Help for Skin Problems Skin Conditions and Skin Health
Our skin is our largest organ. It is also the most visible. It is the boundary, the interface between our physical self and all that is beyond that self. Because of this, the skin is also one of the main areas - together with the digestive system - that an emotional call for help is registered. In fact, though skin problems and skin conditions may indeed have a physical origin, they also very often have a distinct psychological component too. Eczema, psoriasis, acne, pruritus or itching,...

Dry Itchy Skin Eczema Symptoms and Eczema Treatment
Dry Itchy Skin? Eczema Symptoms and Eczema Treatment The skin condition known as eczema is a form of dermatitis that can have several different causes and variations. Eczema often presents itself as scaly, flaky and cracked patches of dry skin, red itchy areas, open weeping flesh and/or little water blisters. Sufferers may find themselves consciously or unconsciously scratching the affected area thereby making the condition worse and delaying the healing process. Causes of Eczema Eczema...

Hypnotherapy for Blushing and Flushing
Blushing is something that everyone has experienced at one time or another. Yet the bizarre thing is that, despite its universality, nobody has really uncovered the reason why we blush. We do know that blushing is a natural response which occurs spontaneously in anyone experiencing a powerful emotion such as embarrassment, anger or excitement, but we do not know why such emotions should produce this kind of flushing. It has been theorized that perhaps blushing is a consequence of a primitive...

Allergy Treatment Hypnotherapy Help with Allergies
In all probability either you or someone you know has an allergy of some sort. In fact, one in three people in the UK suffer from some form of allergy. Each year there is an increase of 5% in those reporting allergic reactions and as many as half of these are children. In the USA, it is estimated that there are well over 35 million people who experience allergies of one kind or another. Exactly why allergies appear to be increasing so rapidly is something of an enigma. Some researches...
