We all experience stress, from time to time – if we don’t get on top of it, it can consume us. If your stress builds up over time, or you have lasting feelings or do not know how to manage it, it can get out of hand.
Prolonged stress affects how you think, feel and behave. Everyone experiences stress differently, but common signs include problems sleeping, loss of appetite, headaches, muscle pain or tension and irritability.
Stress isn’t just caused by pressure at work, redundancy or a relationship breakup. Sometimes we can become stressed from happy events, like having a baby, or starting a new job. It’s not always possible to change a stressful situation.
It can be difficult to concentrate or think clearly, and even simple things can feel overwhelming.
If you think you’re becoming stressed, here are some of the symptoms you may have:
Your behaviour can change in many ways, these are just a few of the examples. You can find out more by visiting the NHS’ official website.
Sometimes it helps just to talk about it, you may feel overwhelmed, scared or you just need someone to listen. Our sessions will help to reduce the feelings of anxiety, depression or fear, and equip you with the skills and strategies to overcome stress. Don’t hesitate to get in touch and find out more about how I can help.

“I found Celia down to earth, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She listened intently and summarised what she had heard with great accuracy and insight; so from this I realised that she completely understood my situation, which was a huge relief. Nothing else had helped my stress and anxiety, but within just a couple of sessions I had experienced a significant shift.
Things are now much better than I could possibly have imagined before I went to see Celia. And I’ve managed to sustain the improvement for the first time I can remember. I am very pleased to have come across Celia. I recommend her very highly.”
"Having never tried hypnotherapy before, I really recommend Celia at Blossom Hypnotherapy. I’d been feeling really anxious for a long time. I felt stressed every day from the time I woke up. I felt a difference right after my first session with Celia. From the moment I met her, Celia was warm and understanding, and extremely knowledgeable. She taught me many useful strategies and provides recordings of the hypnosis so I can always return to them. I always felt she had time for me for any additional materials in the meantime between sessions. I highly recommend her."

We all experience times of stress, and it doesn’t feel good. Our thoughts race, our hearts race, muscles tense, mouths get dry and we get nausea and butterflies in the stomach. This is the body’s fight or flight response kicking in. When we sense a threat, we tense up, ready to fight or run away. […]
