Stress

Are you stressed?
Feeling overwhelmed?
Have health problems caused by stress?

Common symptoms of stress include

  • Muscle tension
  • Headaches
  • Digestive Problems such as IBS
  • Skin Conditions
  • Lack of energy
  • An overactive mind
  • Trouble sleeping

 

I can offer you the opportunity to reduce your stress levels and build your resilience to help to prevent high levels of stress in the future.

I use a checklist to measure the level of stress you are experiencing before we start our work together and we will repeat this measure as we progress.

I use a combination of Hypnotherapy, NLP, CBT and coaching to help change the way you are feeling, equip you with techniques to manage the stresses in your everyday life and build your resilience. You can expect to find sessions with me enjoyable and relaxing.

I am also the author of ‘QuickCalm: How to bring moments of calm to busy lives’ which focuses on giving you quick and effective techniques to help reduce stress levels every day. I may also incorporate this into our sessions if it is appropriate for your needs.

You may be experiencing stress as a result of general overwhelm or your stress may be in response to a particular situation or area of your life. I work with individuals experiencing a whole host of different symptoms and experiencing stress for a diverse range of reasons.

Feel free to contact me to discuss your particular situation and how I can help.

 

Peters Story
Peter had responsibilities at work that he had always enjoyed until he started to feel his body was letting him down. He had been struggling with feeling dizzy and legs feeling like jelly. He described that he was struggling to focus on what people were saying in meetings and was avoiding them as much as possible. He felt constantly worried about symptoms coming on and he had lost his confidence to walk across the office to the photocopier. Peter was suffering from very high stress but was very confused by all of his symptoms.
He says ‘Emma described what was happening to me in a way that made sense and this helped me to feel able to tackle the problem. Emma was a very good listener and tailored her therapies to my needs resulting in noticeable improvements after only a couple of sessions. I applied the methods she taught me both at home and at work and I now feel so much better with no signs of the stress symptoms I had been experiencing’.

 

Linda’s story
As a teacher, Linda was finding she was extremely busy throughout the week and when it came to weekends she felt so exhausted she couldn’t enjoy herself. She said she always got ill in the school holidays and never felt she was able to relax. She had started experiencing physical symptoms like digestive discomfort and a tight chest. She felt particularly unnerved by tingling in her hands which her GP had reassured her was related to stress. She felt that her job meant she would not be able to reduce stress and she therefore had no way of getting better.
She says ‘My job has not changed but I now feel I am working smarter, not harder. Emma has helped me to look at my habits and the structure of my week to make it work better and keep me well all through the term. I have also learned simple tricks and tips to keep me feeling optimistic and calm. The stress test Emma uses really helped me to acknowledge just how stressed I was when I first arrived for help and has helped me to see the steady progress I have made. Now my stress levels are low and we are already half way through the half term!’.
