The modern curse that we are all so familiar with, stress affects all parts of our lives. Modern day stress is overwhelming at times. Human beings have so much to deal with, even in supposedly ‘civilised’ countries. Finances, work, commuting, child care, relationships, negative news, social media, politics, health, climate change, pandemics, wars, energy crises – no wonder we sometimes yearn for a simpler life. Negative over thinking can become habitual and lead to disabling and scary panic attacks. Hypnotherapy and counselling are wonderful ways to overcome it and learn life-long coping skills.
