Stress, anxiety and depression on the increase
You may remember in an earlier blog I talked about the increase in teenagers and even younger children presenting with anxiety issues.
Anxiety seems to pervade the workplace and indeed many of our lives. Mild short lived periods of stress are not damaging but the longer the stress continues the more harmful it becomes. It can transmute into anxiety, panic attacks and ultimately into depression. The longer a person feels helpless with little or no control over their life, the more quickly they will become anxious and depressed.
So it’s important to recognise the harmful effects of stress early and experience and learn relaxation techniques which you can practice yourself at home.
This is where hypnotherapy can be used as an early intervention and its techniques can be learned and practised to maintain the beneficial effects of deep relaxation.
