How Hypnotherapy Can Help You Through The Pandemic
As the pandemic continues and the world struggles to live through Covid-19, more and more people are experiencing life-altering circumstances. Separation from loved ones, social distancing, loss of work, financial instability, physical and mental illness, are all taking their toll on people’s emotional and psychological state. It only takes a quick scouring of online community groups to see how many people are literally living on the edge.
So, during these fragile times, what can people do to help themselves get through these unprecedented days? Perhaps you are an extrovert that thrives off social contact and no longer have a way to fill your glass, or you could be an introvert that needs structure and routine to their life. Whatever the cause of your anxiety is, there are ways to cope through these days. Hypnotherapy is one tool that you can use to improve your mental strength and reduce your anxiety levels.
What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is considered to be an alternative therapy, however, its use is becoming more and more widespread. During hypnosis, the client is brought into a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility. During the session, positive suggestions and guided imagery are used to help them deal with their worries, concerns and issues.
How can hypnotherapy help me?
These are difficult and unprecedented times that that whole world is living through. There is a lot of uncertainty. People are locked out of countries, losing jobs and homes, falling ill and sick and losing loved ones. This is enough to cause high levels of anxiety and stress for many people.
The fact is, people respond to heightened levels of stress in different ways. Some may be able to keep functioning optimally, while others can become highly depressed and also ill. Stress is difficult for the body and can even be dangerous in the current climate since chemicals such as cortisol and adrenaline also weaken the immune system.
Whether you have previous experience with hypnotherapy or you are now considering online or face to face sessions to help you through these days, it is important to put your health and well being first so that you can continue to fulfill your responsibilities and enjoy life in a new way.
Should I consider hypnotherapy?
Ultimately, hypnosis is a deep relaxation of the mind and body. It allows the body’s feel-good chemicals to be released which bring down the stress chemicals. Even if you don’t continue with professional hypnotherapy sessions long term, you can learn how to bring yourself into a state of relaxation and make use of home-based resources whenever you need to.
Hypnotherapy is a long-standing treatment for many conditions including anxiety and stress. It is recognised in many parts of the world and is growing in its acceptance as a mainstream treatment. Through hypnosis, it is possible to be at peace within, and within your daily life.
If you are struggling to function during the pandemic due to stress, or you are looking for ways to self-care to prevent your health from spiralling, hypnotherapy can help you maintain a level of control. Hypnosis is empowering therapy that gets to the very heart of your problems and changes the way you respond to changing and evolving situations.
