Cutting down on substantial levels of stress in the workplace isn’t just good sense for business as it has a beneficial effect on employees but it can also help staff morale and improve productivity.
Judith Ward, a Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH) practitioner based in Bangor says, “One of the most common areas that people come to see me about is areas of life connected to stress and, in particular, stress at work.”
Workplace stress can manifest itself in a variety of different ways – not just in the office but also at home and socially.
Judith is happy to provide talks to businesses on stress and how it can manifest itself, why it happens and steps we can take so it does not become a problem.
I also provide an initial consultation for potential clients to explain why we sometimes respond negatively to stress and how Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help.
“There are parts of our brains that are very adept at dealing with the perception of threats and our negative reactions to stress are an evolutionary coping mechanism which might not be helpful in our day to day lives.”
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps because it does not focus on a problem but looks to a series of solutions which help to quickly propel us towards a brighter future.
“A key part of Hypnotherapy is the safe use of a trance state which is a natural way to aid in the reduction of stress so that, after a number of sessions, the client can start to feel better placed to cope with life.”
Some clients have also found that it helps to improve their thinking ability, productivity and confidence – both in and out of the workplace.
“By emptying the stress bucket, we allow the brain a greater degree for flexibility in being able to think positively, act positively and interact in a productive fashion.”
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also be used to help to take control over other aspects of our lives, ranging from stopping smoking, sleeping through to reducing phobias and weight management.
Judith Ward is a fully qualified hypnotherapy practitioner and is also a member of the prestigious Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH).
