Stress  & Emotional Problems


Stress is the body and mind’s way of protecting. Whenever you are in a situation where the mind perceives a threat the sympathetic branch of the autonomous nervous system is activated which causes the bodies systems to prepare for action. This includes but is not limited too:

  • Heartbeat is accelerated.
  • Blood pressure rises.
  • Glucose and adrenaline is released.
  • The digestive system slows down or is turned off.

Unfortunately this leaves the body out of balance which often leads to feeling irritated, burned out, being tired all the time or anxiety which tend to cause health problems in the long run. Hypnosis practices activate the parasympathetic branch of the autonomous nervous system thereby bringing the body back into balance. This is known as engaging the relaxation response.

One way of dealing with stress is through self-hypnosis. A competent hypnosis facilitator will assist by creating powerful coping mechanisms to deal with unwanted stress or by changing the underlying beliefs that causes a stress response to certain stimuli in the environment.

Emotional Problems

Emotional problems are often caused by inner conflict or beliefs caused by events that happened at a very young age or a combination of both. For inner conflict resolution the Hypnosis facilitator will most probably utilize Parts Therapy.
