FREE “Relaxation” CD helps reduce stress

A Solution Focused hypnotherapist, based in Chipping Sodbury, is offering a FREE hypnotherapy “Relaxation” CD to help new clients to reduce stress and promote feelings of well being.

The CD, which lasts for around 30 minutes, uses soothing music and language rich in imagery and texture, to help people to relax and unwind.

Voiced by hypnotherapy practitioner Julie Showering, the CD is designed to be listened to before the client goes to sleep, and can be helpful, when used in conjunction with regular sessions, in aiding in weight, sleep, and anger management issues.

The CD should not be played in the car or when operating machinery because it can be very effective!

It should be used when someone wants to completely relax for half an hour or so.

“I am delighted to offer clients a free hypnotherapy CD as part of an Initial Consultation, which really aids in their treatment”, says Julie Showering, a fully insured and qualified Solution Focused Hypnotherapy practitioner.

In our hectic world, our brains can often respond to situations we perceive to be stressful in a manner that can prove to be bad for our mental well-being and overall health.

When we start to build up a pattern of negative thinking, therapists say we are adding to our “stress bucket”.

When our “stress bucket” overflows, we may discover issues start to invade our lives and manifest themselves in a variety of ways, from anxiety and stress-related illnesses through to eating issues or anger.

Rapid Eye Movement (REM), which is a natural part of our sleeping cycle, helps to reduce our “stress bucket” levels. REM is limited and if there is a lot in our “stress bucket”, we can find ourselves waking up early (or not being able to sleep at all).

This response, in turn, makes the negative thinking worse, which adds to the “stress bucket” and the negative responses become further enforced.

The free CD, in conjunction with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy sessions with Julie, are designed to aid relaxation by focusing on positive solutions and then replicating REM in a trance state – which is a safe and effective way to alleviate stress.

“We find that after a number of sessions, many clients, who have been using the CD on a regular basis in-between coming to see us, will often say that they are feeling more relaxed and that they are seeing benefits to aspects of their lives.”

Julie says that the CD and sessions combined together are designed to focus the brain into finding solutions in the client’s life, which means that the therapy does not delve into past events, or issues, the client may have experienced.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also be used to help with minor phobias and can be of assistance in helping someone stop smoking in one simple session.
