Stress can be a huge obstacle in your life, yet if you think about it you cannot possibly feel stressed unless you are trying to achieve something. Stress is an essential force in your life, fuelling you to do what you need to do yet you have probably come to know as stress is actually the anxiety that is attached when you fear not being able to achieve what you want to achieve. It is the anxiety that holds you back and the stress that drives you forward and these two forces working against each other can make life very ‘stressful’. Managing the anxiety can leave your stress to do what it needs to do and this can really free you to change your life.
Stress is the need and desire to get something done, the sense of urgency that makes you act, whether the act will enable you to add something to your life or hold on to something that is already yours. Stress gets you moving.
Anxiety is a part of your mind acting to stop you from taking action that puts what you have at risk, or from taking action that will leave you disappointed through failure. It is there to protect you even though it feels it is against you as it is counter productive when stuff needs doing.
When your anxiety holding you back is equal to or greater than the stress driving your forwards, it can really seem that you are your own worst enemy. Come and see me in Worthing and hypnosis can treat your anxiety so that stress is the positive force in your life that it should be. I can do this by reassuring the anxious part of your mind, helping it see your situation differently and give it some new tools to deal with the risk. That way your conscious mind and subconscious mind are both working together in harmony and life gets easier.
