Uncertain Times
Created on 5/3/2019 11:03:16 AM


As this time of uncertainty deepens, I'm reminded of the tales of Jason and the Argonauts, where they are tasked by their King to complete a challenge. Sailing through rough seas, battling ferocious mythical creatures and finally after what seems like an age, they win through, gaining the prize.

Our nation is currently sailing uncharted waters, and yes, they are a bit choppy. Here in Swindon, we have recently had the devastating news that Honda intends to move its plant to Japan. This is going to affect thousands of individuals and other businesses in the local area.

As complications of Brexit deepen and continue, I am seeing more and more cases of stress and anxiety in my practice at the centre. Stress if usually about pressure of a situation or work load, whereas anxiety is concern about the future, the ‘What if’s’. It is my job, as a hypnotherapist, to teach those individuals coping strategies and tools, to retrain the mind, offer a different perspective and a safe space whilst they learn how to manage their stress & anxiety, always supporting.


Some common symptoms:
· Brain fog
· Poor sleep, often waking around 2am or 3am finding it hard to get back to sleep
· Constant whirling mind
· Worrying all the time about everything, even the things we have no control over.

These are just a few of the debilitating symptoms I frequently teach my clients how to overcome and manage. Sleep is, in my opinion, the key to everything. If we get a good and decent night's sleep, we feel so much better and can cope with so much more. With a better sleep pattern, other issues start to fall into place and become easier to deal with, especially if you have coping strategies and tools.

Top Tip for Sleep:
With closed eyes, write the word sleep in your mind and say it to yourself.
Then write the number 10
Followed by the word sleep, again saying it to yourself
Write the number 9
Keep repeating this pattern until you get to 0.
If you haven’t fallen asleep, start again

Sleep well and if you catch yourself over worrying, think to yourself ‘Can I do anything about it?’

Let me know how you get on. I’m always happy to hear from people.
