Do These Two Problems Go Hand-in-Hand?

Stress + Alcohol - Hypnosis Perth

 

Are your drinking habits damaging your mental health?

When we’re dealing with nervous days and stressful situations, it’s tempting to treat ourselves to a quick glass of wine, or a bottle of beer to calm our nerves. However, drinking alcohol can make the situation even worse!

While there’s some truth to the concept that alcohol can reduce stress (it’s a depressant and sedative), the truth is that over time, it often has noticeable physical and mental consequences that can make anxiety even more difficult to deal with.

The good news is that it’s possible to overcome anxiety and bad habits at the same time. All you need to do is find the right treatment for you.  Have you thought of hypnosis?

Does Hypnotherapy Work for Anxiety?

A lot of people already know that hypnosis is a powerful way to overcome bad habits like drinking, smoking, and even excessive spending. However, what they don’t realise is that it can also be a solution for anxiety too. A single NLP and Hypnosis session can help you get to the bottom of your problems with anxiety, and teach you fantastic coping strategies that you can use to change your disruptive behaviours.

Recently, I got some feedback from an old client of mine who used to be in Perth, that I’d like to share which highlights the overall and unexpected benefits.

“You may recall that I came to you on my last visit because I thought I needed to improve my attention span, the idea being that I would then function better in the workplace and might even lead to some career progression. You quickly identified anxiety as a key issue for me rather than attention span, and you gave me some strategies and assistance to deal with that. Consequently, I did overcome the stress and anxiety that I had been trying to cope with in the office.

However, something else also happened – something that I had forgotten I had within me has been unleashed: I have reinvented myself as a risk taker. Earlier this year, M and I took the bull by the horns – we chucked in our jobs, cashed up our resources and bought a business. We are now living in the South Island of New Zealand and running a busy motel. Our motel! Our future! We are both working harder and longer hours than we’ve ever worked before. But it is so much more satisfying doing it for ourselves and neither of us has been happier.” PF (NZ)

Overcoming Anxiety

The testimonial above should be enough to show that hypnosis can be a great way to give people with anxiety control over their lives.  As alcohol changes the levels of serotonin and other neurotransmitters in the brain, it simply makes your emotional issues worse, rather than giving you the structure and strength to deal with your issues in the long-term.

On the other hand, hypnotherapy can give people with anxiety issues the power they require to enjoy more confidence and control in their lives. The key is to find a solution for emotional health and wellbeing that works for you.
