Stress Management

We all know what it is like to feel stressed, however it is not that easy to define exactly what stress means. When we say things like “this is stressful” or “I’m stressed out” we might be talking about when we have a lot to do or when we have demands placed upon us that we find difficult to cope with.

Although short burst of stress can heighten our performance and help us accomplish tasks, long-term stress can have a major impact on physical and mental health affecting how you feel emotionally, mentally and physically.

You may feel emotionally 

How you may feel mentally

  • racing thoughts and constant worrying

  • difficulty concentrating and making decisions

How you may feel physically

How you may behave

  • drinking or smoking more

  • snapping at people

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

I use Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy to help clients manage and cope with stress. 

Please do not hesitate to call or email me for a free initial consultation to discuss how best I can help you.


The 8-week programme teaches a set of simple yet powerful practices including meditation, breathing exercises and stretching with elements from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help break the cycle of anxiety, stress and unhappiness.


The focus of the treatment is on changing one’s relationship to unwanted thoughts, feelings and body sensations so that participants no longer try to avoid them or react to them automatically, but rather respond to them in an intentional and skillful manner.


People who practise the techniques regularly may find lasting physical and psychological benefits such as:

  • reduced stress and anxiety

  • higher levels of energy and enthusiasm for life

  • improved sleeping patterns

  • living in the present moment

  • increased self-confidence and productivity

  • an improved ability to manage emotions


Strategies used:

  • meditations to include body scan, breathing meditation, walking meditation

  • living in the present moment

  • seeing thoughts as just ‘thoughts’

  • stepping out of automatic pilot

You will take home...

  • pre-recorded guided meditations from the programme

  • all materials you will need to continue your practice at home

  • tools and strategies to help you manage stress and live a more fulfilling and happier life
