If there’s one thing you can be certain about in life, it’s that you will experience change. Everyone deals with change, be it big or small, at some point. Change is a normal part of life. Yet, change can leave you feeling completely overwhelmed and can create a sense of anxiety, distress and panic.
Both Positive and Negative Change Can Be Stressful
One measure of mental health is how well we deal with change. Any time a change occurs, we could be facing a stressful situation, particularly if the change involves something negative such as divorce, job loss, relationship loss, illness or bereavement. Positive changes, however, could also be stressful or overwhelming because of the unknown, such as moving, taking a new job, getting married or having a child.
You Can Make a Situation Better or Worse
Whether you can deal effectively with the changes in your life depends greatly on how you think about and react to the change. Just by your thought process, you can often make the situation better or worse. For example, let’s say you’re moving to an unfamiliar place. You can think that you’ll never like the new place as much as you like where you are now, or you can look at the move as an adventure with many interesting discoveries and new friendships awaiting you. Just by changing your thought process, you open the doors to a more rewarding and positive experience.

How We Can Help
We at MH-Hypnotherapy teach our clients a way of thinking that enables them to feel more in control of their thoughts and feelings. That, in turn, leaves them feeling more energised, positive and able to cope with the stresses that change can bring. These tools and techniques are long lasting because we teach our clients how to cope with their issues independently using hypnotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), homeopathy, Energetic NLP and Matrix Energetics.
How Many Sessions Does This Take?
We treat all our clients on an individual basis, particularly when the distress is longstanding and impacts the ability to cope with everyday life. During the initial free consultation, we discuss the problem in more detail. This enables us to assess how severe the problem is and to determine the number of sessions required.
