A Silent Killer

Stress-it greys your hair, puts strain on your relationships and ultimately could shorten your life and damage your DNA according to a recent study. No matter how successful and well adjusted you are, sometimes when your life’s been hectic for a while, stress creeps into your subconscious before your brain can put up barriers, trickling in like rain water until there’s too much for you to cope with and it bursts through the floodgates.

If left unchecked, too much stress can lead to:

• Broken relationships with loved ones
• sleepless nights,
• Severe anxiety disorders and depression.
• Premature death

But why am I always so Stressed?

It’s important to realise that stress is nothing to be ashamed of, it is a learned neurobiological response that dates right back to the time when our ancestors had to defend themselves in the wild. Since our brain still thinks stress an important survival mechanism, stress responses are created too early in our lives for us to remember any other way.

Maybe you got lost in the supermarket as a young child, and being distressed caught people’s attention and got you home safely, or maybe you saw your parents getting stressed out frequently. Experiences like these make us think that it is not only natural to be highly stressed, but that it is unavoidable unless you’re prepared to go on anti-anxiety meds. What many people don’t know is that since holistic treatment such as hypnotherapy has become readily available to all, this is no longer the case.

A Natural Cure

Prescription anxiety medicines only supress the release of stress chemicals in the brain, they do nothing to actually stop the brain from wanting to create them in response to problems. This means that that as soon as you run out of tablets, it’s likely your stress levels will rise again. Hypnotherapy on the other hand trains your subconscious to react differently to trying situations, which stops the stress chemicals from being released altogether.

Social Anxiety / Professional Confidence - Public Speaking / Fear of Flying

"I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago"

I've suffered from constant anxiety for as long as I can remember, particularly from social anxiety and fear of public speaking, to the point that my office jobs were no longer manageable and I was very close to fall deeply into depression. I had very little self-confidence, despite having progressed in my career and achieved many of my professional and personal goals. However, I got to a point in which I wasn't able to progress any further due to my the constant fear of being evaluated and criticised by others, which paralysed me and stopped me from speaking up and being more visible. My day to day prior to the sessions was absolutely controlled by my anxiety and lack of confidence due to past experiences, mainly during my childhood. Having done a number of therapies before (eMDR, CBT) I was sceptical at first, but I wanted to give hypnotherapy and the BAGC6 a go. After around 13 sessions I can say that I'm in a much better place than when I started. My constant anxiety has hugely decreased, and I'm now able to perform tasks that I thought were impossible a month ago, like giving a speech in front of my colleagues without having a panic attack or simply socialising with new people at a party. My perspective on things is now different and I've gained new confidence which allows me to speak and interact with others without fear. Maria has been great in understanding my issues and creating a very tailored treatment (hypnosis, eMDR, etc) to tackle these. She's always been very determined and a firm believer in a full recovery which has been very helpful, particularly in moments when I wanted to give up. She's also giving me tools and techniques that I can use to manage emotions and to stay focused (like auto-hypnosis) and I'm using these almost on a daily basis to continue building on my confidence and resilience. As per the fear of flying, this is something that I still need to test, but I'm confident that I will have also overcome it in the same way that I've beaten my anxiety disorder. I can only be grateful to Maria for all her help and for believing in me since day 1, and totally recommend her treatment!

Thanks so much!
