Hypnotherapy and NLP can help you stop worrying



  • Do you worry constantly?
  • Do you feel worn out from worry?
  • Do you feel you have to worry to maintain control?
  • Do you believe you cannot stop worrying?

 Winston Churchill said 'When I look back on all these worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he'd had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which never happened'. If you have a tendency to constantly worry. I can help you to think more positively and learn to expect the best instead of anticipating the worst.

What is worrying?

It means spending a lot of time thinking about bad things and being preoccupied with negative possibilities. The more you do it, the bigger your worries become. You may even find yourself worrying about all the time you've spent worrying.
There are many different types of worries. They include gloomy thoughts about what might happen in the future, about what is happening in the present, and about what is already in the past.

Fears for the future

You might be concerned about things that very probably won't happen, as well as about things that might. So, you may be afraid of being involved in an accident, or developing a fatal illness, despite the fact that both are statistically unlikely. You may also be troubled by events or circumstances that you do have some control over. For instance, you could be overwhelmed by doubts about meeting a deadline, or passing an exam, because you haven't done enough work.

Present concerns

Again, these can include feeling anxious about a situation you are powerless to change, but also about situations you can do something about. You could be distressed because you've been caught in traffic or your train has been delayed, although this is out of your hands.

Feelings about the past

Once something has already happened, there's often nothing you can do to alter it. But you may continue to fret about whether you have offended someone, or have carried out a task properly, or what people think about you.

How worry affects you

Your body reacts chemically to the fear that worrying can create. When you are scared, your body releases adrenalin. This is a result of the 'flight or fight' reflex that evolved to help us to overcome or run away from anything that threatened us physically. Adrenalin affects the digestive system and can make you feel ill. The more you worry, the worse it gets, and a sudden rush of adrenaline can lead to butterflies in the stomach, a headache, or feeling very sick.
Excessive worry can lead to other issues such as:


  • Sleeping problems
  • Losing your self-confidence
  •  Unhelpful coping strategies- drinking, smoking, overeating,  Anxiety

 Worry leaves us feeling unsure about what we want, how to go about something or being at odds with ourselves over making a decision, worry can drain us of our energy.  We quite literally agonise over relentless mental arguments such as "Shall I/Shan't I", "Am I/Aren't I" and so on.

Mental arguments can sometimes come about when we don't express ourselves openly and honestly and/or when our head and our heart are in conflict with each other. They can also be related to anxiety, self-doubt, low self-esteem, fear of the unknown and procrastination. Sometimes, they can involve feeling unsure situations in our life, such as whether to stay in a relationship or a job. Such indecision, confusion and conflict can bring on stress, sleeplessness, irritability and make us feel down.
