Christmas Stress
Christmas is a very stressful time of year here at Surrey Hypnotherapy Clinic we are juggling shopping, carol services, school nativity plays with seeing clients who are more stressed than usual.

Recently I have been asked what can I do, how can I get through the next few weeks, clients say I’m exhausted but I can’t sleep, I have a constant headache and often one or other members of the family are suffering from coughs and colds to add to the stress.

I teach my clients self-hypnosis techniques to help them take five minutes for themselves. The techniques are simple and if taught during a hypnosis session are easy for the client to learn.

Clients don’t have to lie down in a darkened room simple eye closure techniques can be taught that they can do any time. Just five minutes away from the bustle of Christmas, even if it means locking yourself in the bathroom after putting on the sprouts, on to cook will give you enough energy to enjoy and enthusiasm to enjoy the rest of the day.

A word of warning though about getting too comfortable, one very stressed out man who learned self hypnosis went home from work and told his wife he was going to do this straight away. He went upstairs at 6.30 and lay on the bed he woke at 6.30 the next morning with the duvet thrown over him.

His wife decided he looked so peaceful she couldn’t bring herself to disturb him. So if Mum or Dad go missing for too long on Christmas morning just wake them gently or you may end up with soggy sprouts.
