Trained hypnotists have helped thousands
of people reduce stress, solve problems in
their lives, overcome fears, and improve
personal skills and characteristics. Responding negatively to stress is a habit
that has been learned over the years. You’re
not born with it – you learn it! As we all
know, a habit is difficult to break on your
own. Through the use of hypnosis,
suggestions are given that will cancel out the
negative habit. Once the negative habit has
been removed, suggestions are then given
that will start a new positive way to respond
when faced with a stressful situation.
The hypnosis is conducted as a private,
confidential session that addresses your
unique circumstances and will provide you
with the tools to help you cope with and

Stress is a fact of life, and can be triggered by major life events such as getting married or divorced, moving, job loss, change of job or the death of a loved , as well, as excessive worrying and daily hassles like traffic gridlock, commuting, extreme weather, etc. Excessive stress can cause biochemical changes in the body causing adverse effects on health and the body’s immune system. It is a contributing factor to many illnesses including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, migraine headaches, mental illness, and leaves your body vulnerable to dis-ease. Stress is also a risk factor in alcohol and substance abuse, as well as weight loss and gain. Many people self- medicate in an attempt to alleviate stress, which frequently results in worsening of problems.
Health Canada describes the three stages your body experiences when you become overstressed:
Mobilizing Energy Your body releases adrenaline, your heart beats faster and you start to breathe more quickly. Both good and bad events can trigger this reaction.
Consuming Energy Stores If you remain in the mobilizing energy stage for a period of time, your body begins to release stored sugars and fats. You will then feel driven, pressured and tired. You may drink more coffee, smoke more and drink more alcohol. You may also experience anxiety, negative thinking or memory loss, catch a cold or get the flu more often than normal.
Draining Energy Stores If you do not resolve your stress problem, your body's need for energy will become greater than its ability to provide it. At this stage, you may experience insomnia, errors in judgement and personality changes. You may also develop a serious illness such as heart disease or be at risk of mental illness.
