Research shows that about half a million people in the UK experience work-related stress that they believe is making them ill. Changes in our lives, such as the death of a loved one, a new relationship, a demanding job or job promotion, the birth of a child can also cause higher levels of stress which often affects both mental and physical health. Stress is not a ‘one size fits all’, you may find a situation at work stressful; yet another person on your team appears fine. For example, some people can find public speaking fun and comfortable, whereas others dread presenting and exhibit signs of stress.


“Annette has been fantastically helpful for me, straight from the first session I was sure that I’d made the right decision in booking a session. She has really helped me transform how I deal with stressful situations. I am now able to take a step back from challenges and think clearly in making decisions. In addition to this she’s helped me learn relaxation and mindfulness techniques, which have helped me to really develop a feeling of calmness and reduce anxiety. This has had an immense impact on my life as I feel I can now be myself in all situations, without anxiety holding me back.”
Jack, 28, Manager

‘Happy’ events such as marriage or moving house can also cause stress as the pressure of time, family and expectations mount. The aim should be to find effective ways of managing stress. Hypnotherapy is proven to be highly effective for managing stress. I can help you to actively reduce your stress levels and teach you techniques that you can continue using in the future. We work together to change your perception of situations and your ability to cope with stress. By working with you to ‘reframe’ the situation/you/the people involved, we can rationally and honestly work out the steps you need to take in order to gain some perspective and clarity on the situation, viewing things from a stronger, and different vantage point.
