Yes Vickieminx1, hypnotherapy can certainly help you with stress!
As one of my clients described it: “I experienced a deep sense of relaxation and well-being within minutes of my hypnosis session with Claire which then lasted for the duration of my session. It was like a more intense version of the state I am in after a whole hour and a half of massage.  I felt on an absolute high for the rest of the day - like I was invincible!”
I believe that hypnotherapy is so good for relieving stress that I recommend stressed out clients integrate it into their lives in the same way they would a massage or a hair cut or a pamper day. As such I offer a special rate for stress reduction and relaxation sessions.
I also teach my clients stress reduction techniques and self-hypnosis which they can use at any time to help them deal with their stress between sessions.
In essence hypnotherapy can help you get in touch with who you are and what's important to you so that you are able to truly take control of your life with confidence and self-belief.

Yes, Hypnotherapy can be very helpful for those suffering from Stress.
Hypnotherapy should not be confused with hypnosis. Hypnotherapy is carried out while the subject is conscious and at no time do subjects lose consciousness or control. The Therapist introduces therapeutic ideas into the mind while the subject is in a relaxed and comfortable state. It is a widely accepted as a form of alternative therapy, which has proved successful in the treatment of stress.
Stress can be understood as a suggestive state where the mind tells the individual that things are overwhelming them - the mind can be seen as running wild and out of control. The idea of hypnotherapy is to help the sufferer regain some of the control over the mind and to bring about a reduction in stress levels and to strengthen their ability to fulfill a meaningful life or relationship.
Consult your G.P about trying hypnotherapy and ask their opinion and advice before embarking on it as a treatment.
What happens during a hypnotherapy session is likely to be as follows. After taking a medical history to ascertain that hypnotherapy is right for you and that it will not interfere with other treatments the therapist will induce in you a relaxed state and will ask you to move away from events that may have been troubling you and instead to focus on your breathing and on the relaxed state they have induced in you. In the relaxed state the heart rate, breathing and metabolism slow down and the brain waves change rendering you more likely to absorb more helpful thoughts and ideas
Then certain therapeutic suggestions are made to you such as ‘you are not feeling stressed’ or ‘you are feeling relaxed’. These are likely to be repeated using different forms of words. In this calm brain and body state the suggestions become embedded and are seen as a more reasonable interpretation of the events around around you. This utilises your own power of auto suggestion where the subconscious mind tells the conscious mind that things are not as the conscious mind makes them appear.
Following a session self hypnosis exercises may be suggested such as relaxation techniques, counting down into a relaxed state, statements or mantras to repeat to support the change which you wish to achieve and counting back to a fully alert state.

Hypnotherapy is an excellent treatment for stress. It can help alleviate the cause and increase your general relaxation and enable you to sleep better. It's well worth a try.
bodylean
yes as it will help you to relax and calm down during the treatment, you should also find that you will sleep really well too

It is one of the best ways of dealing with and alleviating stress and the symptoms it can cause. Learning relaxation techniques such as self hypnosis and meditation can help, as can techniques such as EFT, the tapping technique which is very effective in stressful situations when you only have a few minutes and which will instantly lower stress levels, allowing you to cope more calmly.Please see my website or phone me for more information.

Hypnotherapy is excellent at treating the symptoms of stress. Mindfulness tackles the root cause of those symptoms, changing the way we relate to stress anxiety or any difficulty we face in our lives from the get go!

hi Vicky, I agree it can be a great tool to relieve stress. If you've have ever experienced thoughts racing round your head which you can't shut off, you'll understand the relief you'd feel if you can discover techniques to find a bit of momentary peace and get things into perspective. Hypnotherapy really can help you do this. Some of the techniques you can learn through working with a qualified hypnotherapist and can then use in self-hypnosis. The advantage of working with a hypnotherapist directly is they will tailor the treatment to you, rather than a generic download or CD.

Yes! Stress is an unconscious response to a situation that for one reason or another causes distress to a person. Hypnotherapy works so well because we address the root cause of the problem directly and easily, resolving it then and there once and for all.
This means that not only with you be free of stress in that situation, but you'll also have empowered yourself at a deeper level to handle other potentially stressful situations with a newfound wisdom and grace.
Your subconscious mind is massively powerful and can serve you in amazing ways when you get it aligned with your conscious desires. Go seek out your local hypnotherapist and be free of stress now!
Just imagine, what would your life be like if you were free of stress now? What could you achieve? What could you do, be and have?
(And what will it cost you if you don't address this stress right now?)

Yes, definitely. Consciously you can talk about stress and the reasons why you have it but that doesn't help you get rid of it. If you go into a deep state of guided relaxation, such as hypnotherapy, that is where the changes can be made so that you stop reacting to stress as before. I'd be happy to answer any other questions about hypnotherapy by email or phone so please contact me through my website below. I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation to see if you want to go forward with the hypnotherapy.

Absolutely!! It is in my opinion one of the best ways to de-stress using a mixture of visualisation, suggestion and even instruction on how to use self-hypnosis whenever you need it. Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool that you can use to take control of your wellbeing and I highly recommend it.
