Hypnotherapy for stress

Stress is different from anxiety. Stress comes from the pressures we feel in life, as we are pushed by work or any other task that puts undue pressure on our minds and body.

Stress can come from a thought or situation that makes you feel nervous, frustrated, angry, or even anxious.

What causes stress

It can be hard to identify the exact cause. However, there are a number of common causes. The brain doesn’t tend to distinguish between real or imaginary stress. So stress can be caused by what we think will happen rather than what will actually happen.

Some common causes:

  • big changes
  • high pressure environments
  • constant worrying
  • not having enough going on in your life
  • not having any control over a situation
  • having an overwhelming amount of responsibility.

There might be a single cause of your stress, but it can also occur because of a number of small challenges that have built up over time. This in turn might make it harder for you to distinguish what the root cause is.
