Hypnotherapy is considered to be a very effective treatment for stress and anxiety. Stress and anxiety continues to become an ever more increasing difficulty to deal with; in fact the latest reports show over 9 million people suffer from anxiety during their lifetime. Most people have heard of the fight/flight response, and of course this is a primitive response, which is necessary for modern day living.
At the Observatory Practice we only use proven techniques that work, you should expect a thorough explanation as to why people suffer. You will learn how to prevent negative stress, how to identify increased levels of stress, and how to deal with the situation and how to prevent it reaching debilitating levels in a positive and responsible way.
Understanding “why” you are suffering with these conditions will help prevent a relapse once the treatment is complete.
