Everyone worries at some time – especially new parents and most certailnly more so in this current, uncertain climate! But no-one has to feel hopeless because there is so much you can do to alleviate anxiety. You don’t have to live with feeling anxious all the time, or even some of the time.
A little stress here and there is actually good for us, but being constantly stressed or anxious can have an adverse effect on your health, relationships, children, sleeping patterns, and general outlook on life.
Stress and anxiety trigger neurocircuitry that isn’t meant to be switched on all the time, they are designed to be used sparingly – in the case of life-or-death scenarios. They aren’t meant to be triggered on a daily basis for example as a response to:
- Feeling totally overpowered by anxiety and worry during pregnancy
- Parenthood regularly leaving you feeling totally overwhelmed or unable to cope
- Feeling unconfident and anxious about soon needing to return to work after maternity leave
When we are stressed our bloodstream will be flooded with stress hormones. Heartrate increases, breathing becomes panicky and tension increases in all the muscles. Maintenance systems power down – after all, if there is a ‘threat’ to be managed now isn’t the time for growth and repair, we need to work out whether to flee, fight or flight!
“In the year ending March 2020, average ratings of life satisfaction, happiness and anxiety, in the UK, all deteriorated; this is the first time since we started measuring them, in 2011, that these three measures have significantly worsened when compared with the year before.” – Office for National Statistics
With all that said, however, things can still be very different…
Because if you are currently suffering from anxiety and truly want rid of it, there are powerful and proven solutions available for you to use immediately.
Using Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) to Beat Your Anxiety
At Inner Medicine, we recognise how miserable your life can be when you regularly suffer from anxiety, which is why we specialise in offering Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy to our clients.
CBH is an extremely effective, quick, short term therapy. It will help you to finally gain control over those factors contributing to your anxious state meaning you’re able to ease into feeling great and being in full control of your life once again. You will feel positive effects right from the first session and unlike other therapies, there won’t be the need to attend lots and lots of sessions.
Just imagine for a minute how that’s going to feel!
The reason CBH is so effective is because it looks at any current issues a person is experiencing, rather than focusing on the past. CBH focuses on problem solving, turning worries into solutions and helping the person change how they think, feel and behave around certain things or situations. For example learning:
- New ways of thinking
- How to let go of problematic thoughts
- How to relax
- How to calm down
- How to problem solve
- How to approach scary things
- How to be assertive… etc.
You’ll spend time rehearsing your new ways of thinking, acting and feeling whilst in the calm, relaxed and powerful state of hypnosis.
Because it’s impossible to feel both anxious and calm at the same time, CBH techniques, along with specific breathing and relaxation skills helps your body and mind reconfigure your response to triggers that previously made you feel anxious. What happens is you start to perceive those triggers differently than before, and consequently, you begin responding to them with a sense of calmness and control.
