Did you know that a SIDE-EFFECT of Hypnosis is reduced stress?

For some reason, no matter what the purpose of the session was, people report that they feel as though they have less stress after a hypnosis session.

Of course, their life situations probably didn’t change.  What happens after a session is that people simply REACT to what was once a stressful situation in a more positive, pro-active, or even indifferent manner.

Since stress is a key factor in most every issue we help people with, we at Berkshire Hypnosis have become near-experts on the topics of Stress and Anxiety.  Here are a few articles that are very helpful:

Relax and Recharge

Be sure to make time for fun and relaxation so you’ll be better able to handle life’s stressors. Carve some time out of your day – even 10 to 15 minutes – to take care of yourself. Also, remember that exercise is an excellent stress reliever.

Everyone has different ways they like to relax and unwind. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Take a walk
  • Read a book
  • Go for a run
  • Have a cup of tea
  • Play a sport
  • Spend time with a friend or loved one
  • Meditate (learn how in the sidebar)
  • Do yoga

While you can’t avoid stress, you can minimize it by changing how you choose to respond to it. The ultimate reward for your efforts is a healthy, balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun.

  1. I was wondering how much hypnosis sessions cost. Can hypnosis be used to build confidence, optimism, and help someone become more outgoing?

    • Sessions cost $90 (which includes a CD recording of the session). 3 or more sessions are $60/session (up-front). 5 or more sessions are $50/session.

      Hypnosis can help someone become more comfortable with themselves. Confidence, optimism, and being more outgoing are simply a positive side-effect of this.

  2. Can Hypnosis help me to sleep, I have been taking med for about 5 years, it only give about 4,or 5 hours the most.

    • Yes, hypnosis is very effective for this. In fact, a SIDE EFFECT of hypnosis sessions is usually better sleep. I have developed a session specifically for people suffering insomnia. I record this personalized session onto a CD so that you can listen to it as you fall asleep. No drugs. No issues. Just deep, restful sleep. You’ll be amazed as how much better you feel.

  3. Can hypnosis help me quit smoking? How does it work? I am very interested in quiting. Thank you

    • Statistically, hypnosis has the greatest success when used to help quit smoking. How does it work? It somehow connects those parts of you that WANT to quit smoking with the other parts that can help you actually do it. Many people WANT to quit, but they need that little push from somewhere else. That push can very effectively come from your subconscious, which is where hypnosis comes in. Read other articles on this site and others and you’ll get greater insight.
