While we all have some stress and even occasional anxiety in our lives, if that stress is too severe or experienced over too long a period then it may begin to affect our mental and physical health. Common problems such as insomnia or even sometimes phobias can be due to excessive stress and anxiety. Chronic stress may even affect our immune system and make us more susceptible to colds, flus and even auto-immune conditions in some cases (which is why hypnotherapy is often an effective way to manage some of these conditions). In extreme cases of chronic anxiety people may even suffer panic attacks. While many people turn to medications to manage these conditions, it may not be widely known that many of these problems can be managed naturally with Clinical Hypnosis.
