Once you have mastered making this change in your life, you can apply the self hypnosis techniques you have learned to making any other change you wish to make in your life.


When is it Advisable for You to Attend a Professional?

Self Hypnosis for stress will always be suggestion hypnosis. Where working with suggestions and auto suggestions is powerful enough work for many people, some people have deeper issues underlying the chronic stress state they find themselves in. If this is your situation, I recommend you attend a professional hypnotherapist at that stage who will be able to help you overcome whatever is keeping you stuck using regression hypnosis.

In my article on life regression hypnosis find some tips on how to find a good hypnotherapist to work with. If you have an internal block about attending a hypnotherapist, also have a look at my article on hypnosis myths because I believe that these myths are very present in public consciousness and can often be the cause of such an aversion.

How will you know if self hypnosis for stress is working for you? 

  • With self hypnosis for stress, you should see some level of change within a week or so of consistent practice.
  • If nothing happens for you at all in that time frame even though you have practiced every day, you would probably benefit from a professional consultation. The caveat here is that changes can be subtle, or easily missed if you don't have the time to reflect thoroughly on them. Therefore you are best advised to keep track of changes in relation to your stress symptoms in a notebook while going through the process. Record items such as your sleeping pattern, emotions, mind set, level of well being and physical symptoms every day, tracking any changes. 
  • If you find you are getting some positive change at the start, and nothing more after that- or if you have disturbing emotions and body sensations coming up during or after practice, these are also signs that you would benefit from a professional consultation.

Using regression hypnosis, these types of blocks can be easily overcome with an experienced hypnotherapist. In my article on life regression hypnosis find some tips on how to find the right hypnotherapist for you.

Self hypnosis can work hand in hand with such professional hypnotherapy sessions if they are required. For most people, suggestion hypnosis alone is enough to achieve changes in stress symptoms.
