How Hypnotherapy Helps With Stress Management

A way to reframe the subconscious mind

By Azra Shuib | October 1st, 2021

As normal human beings, we can’t run away from stress. There are 2 types of stress, good stress and bad stress. Good stress drives you to excel and meet your goals, while bad stress is completely the opposite. It hinders you from making sound judgement and interferes with daily life.

What happens when you are stressed

Physiologically, when stress happens, the body goes into a fight or flight response. The reproductive system, the immune system and the digestive system are put on hold to save energy, and the cortisol hormone (stress hormone) is released in larger quantities to help with increasing the metabolism of glucose. When cortisol is left too long in the bloodstream, it can harm the body, leading to weight gain, blood sugar imbalance, fertility problems and decreased immune function.

Some other effects of stress include:

· Tense muscles

· Headaches

· Sleeping problems

· Fatigue

· Changes in appetite

Yoga and exercise are proven ways to reduce stress, but not everybody can or prefer to do them. Hypnosis is a much more relaxed method; it does not require intense activities or invasive measures. 

Hypnosis is a safe treatment that allows you to enter a state of deep relaxation, where the subconscious mind is more open to new ideas. This way, the hypnotherapist can ‘suggest’ different ways of responding to stress in your subconscious. Our subconscious mind works without us realizing it, thus helping us to change our mindset and behaviours from within.

What happens during Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a powerful procedure performed to connect and integrate with what you have manifested and to release what is no longer serving you. The treatment helps you to consciously understand your inner soul and be your authentic self. 

During a Hypnotherapy session, the procedure involves a meditative state of deep focus and concentration to connect with the blueprints, negative belief systems, and triggers that are stored in your subconscious mind in order to release them.

Some patients will see improvements after just 1 session, while others may require more sessions, depending on each individual’s needs. Hypnotherapy can be helpful for short-term stress, for instance, if you have a big presentation coming up, the therapy is able to help frame your mind to respond in a more relaxed way.

With regular sessions, you can expect reduced stress and an increase in self-esteem and a good mood. With a stronger mind, it can also help you to increase confidence to say ‘no’ or set boundaries with people for your own mental health.
