Managing stress is both essential and possible!
If you have too much stress and want to know what you can do about it, then you are exactly where you need to be because helping people manage their stress, is something I have spent many years and thousands of hours doing, making me somewhat of an expert in the field. But don't just take my word for it, check out what past clients say here!
To manage stress, we need to understand what it is, how it develops and how we can manage two things.
1. what we can do to prevent it from occurring in the first place and
2. what we can do to reduce it, once it occurs
Stress comes mostly in two forms, 1. psychological stress, 2. oxidative stress.
Results when the brain detects danger or a threat to our existence and these days, existence can mean lots of different things! If we face losing our job, that means we could lose our home or the debt we already have, will get even bigger. Other threats could be, a threat to our marriage or relationship through infidelity or our partner falling out of love with us. Then there are threats from the outside, e.g. a change in political policy, President Trump's trade war affected many of the people it was supposed to help, e.g. farmers, consumers etc. Other factors can also play a part, for example, the health and quality of family relationships, social networks, job satisfaction, friendships and our general sense of security, e.g. being bullied, even being the bully too, Essentially, anything that interrupts or interferes with the quality of our daily life, thus putting the status quo at risk, is a source of psychological stress.
Is a consequence of environmental, even natural things, that challenge our physical domain, e.g. too much: noise, silence, heat, cold, crowds, isolation (loneliness), toxins, nutritional deficiencies, too much/little of one type of nutrition, e.g. carbs, sugars, even certain vitamins too! Other important factors are poor quality sleep or things like nicotine, alcohol, drugs etc. So, if we have high levels of oxidative stress, this can merely amplify or mask the effects of psychological stress. This can cause confusion because we can take effective steps to reduce psychological stress but not get the results we expect, simply because we have not addressed the oxidative stress. Hence why I take a holistic approach to managing stress!
Consequently, when it comes to helping clients experiencing too much stress, it helps to identify the type and sources of their stress because both types need to be addressed as part of a whole solution!
As a fully qualified and experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist and anxiety specialist, I have now helped thousands of clients live life in a more calm and relaxed way. The significance of this statement, should not be underestimated because calm and peaceful states of relaxation are the counter emotion of the stress response and involve the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest). However, it does surprise many clients that I focus on the importance of creating calm and peaceful states of mind! In essence, we should think more in terms of managing relaxation, than stress, because relaxation is the state we want to be more prevalent. However, understanding the many ways in which the brain and mind maladapt to non-threatening and/or unrealistic environmental stressors is an important factor in resolving the harmful effects of chronic stress. So, managing our exposure and response to stressors becomes an essential element of discovering unique ways to live a better life!
Before you propose a solution, you have to understand the problem!
Some therapists work in specific ways, my approach is flexible and focuses on your needs, not my idea of your needs. Some issues have their roots in the past and a client may feel the need or want to address that. Others, have been there and didn't like it. So, I tailor your therapy, based on your needs. That said, it can be useful to understand how any condition develops in the brain and while the roots of it may be in the past, we don't necessarily have to go there to resolve the issue, most often, the solution is simply a consequence of my unique approach to understanding how the brain-mind develop stress and anxiety as a protective guardian!

We, as individuals, at least from a cellular perspective, are genetically identical. The DNA in each cell is exactly the same and we are merely a synthesis of our parents DNA. So what makes us different? it is all in the way the different genes express themselves and nothing influences that process more than our exposure to and perception of the environment we live in. So, if you are chronically stressed, your perception of life and the environment may be a little off-kilter with the reality of it.
Stress is an inherent built-in life protection system, when activated correctly, for the right reason, it can make you stronger and faster (fight or flight) but it is really there to keep you safe in times of real danger or a life-threatening situation. The problem with modern-day life is that most of the threats we face aren’t really life-threatening. They may, of course, be life-changing, for example, lose your job and the bank may want their house back! In situations like that, positive stress may actually help you, it’ll certainly get your attention and, hopefully, motivate you to get another job. But left untreated, you can begin to turn against yourself, e.g. self-sabotage, explosive anger, trembling rage, insomnia, depression, low self-esteem and self-worth, not to mention confidence, are often all affected. Sounds awful, doesn't it? Well, left untreated, it really can be, hence why you need help and Trans4mational Therapy is here to do just that; help you!
