How to cope with stress and prevent burnout


When stress starts to become unreasonable and starts to affect our daily life, causing us to feel sick, anxious, unhappy, or fatigued it is a serious problem. Learn how to cope with stress and prevent burnout.






Stress can be both positive and negative


Stress is a normal part of life. Contrary to popular belief, stress can be both positive and negative. Stress warns us that we’re encountering problematic situations, and is designed to motivate us to take action in order to reduce that stress and make our life better. Without stress, we wouldn’t feel any motivation to make our life better. We would take risks without regard for the consequences and make decisions that affect the course of our life without any critical thinking to ensure it’s what’s best for you. Stress is caused by the body’s natural reaction to defend itself, so in an emergency, the stress will force us to exert maximum effort to protect ourselves.

In small amounts, stress is actually a good thing. But when that stress starts to become unreasonable and starts to affect our daily life, causing us to feel sick, anxious, unhappy, or fatigued – then our levels of stress have become a serious problem.

Stress changes many components of our body. In excess, stress makes the long-term outlook of our life considerably worse.

Long-term stress is one of the key contributing factors in the development of numerous types of mental health problems and puts humans at severely increased risk of developing serious conditions like anxiety and depression. In addition, these conditions lead to further stress, resulting in a vicious cycle that can damage the quality of life.

Each individual deals differently with stress. Common causes include loss, change, an uncertain future, conflicts with your belief system or lifecycle transitions. The human brain does not distinguish between real or imagined stress and stress is often created by what we think rather than what has actually happened.

Is it not the situation itself that causes stress, but our reaction to the situation, hypnotherapy can be effective for managing stress. By altering our reaction to a particular situation during hypnosis to a more positive one, the feelings about that situation can also become more positive. When an individual then experiences that situation in real life, their reaction will often be much different.







Stressors are triggers that induce negative reactions that ultimately lead to stress-related physical and psychological problems and illnesses.

Common workplace stressors include high or insufficient workloads, lack of control over work activities, lack of interpersonal support, people being asked to perform tasks to which they are unsuited, weak or ineffective managers, poor physical working environments, a blame culture within the business where people are afraid of getting things wrong, unresolved conflicts, lack of recognition, being constantly interrupted and personality problems within the workplace.

Typical symptoms of stress include tiredness and irritability, indecisiveness and poor judgment, lack of sleep, poor timekeeping, an increase in headaches, nausea, aches and pains, inexplicable mood swings, unexplained fatigue, high blood pressure, unusual weight gain or weight loss, chronic indigestion, and chest pains.

Stress Management & Life Balance Therapy


People differ on the amount of stress that they can cope with and many would argue that a small amount of stress is needed to enable you to function in a competitive workplace. However, in many cases factors, other than your work, may contribute to stress in a bigger way, e.g., family turmoil, divorce, bereavement, and financial troubles are amongst the main causes of stress.

Wring out your brain: All day, every day, you absorb information and impressions from the outside world like a sponge — not all of it beneficial. Hypnobalancing and self-hypnosis are ways to wring out the sponge, squeezing out whatever you don’t want or need. It is preventive medicine for the spirit, a refreshing pause for the mind, and a reservoir of calm for the emotions.

Hypnobalancing™ is a method to manage high-stress levels, achieve life balance, reverse the effect that stress has on your physical and mental state, promote good health, and thereafter increase the quality of your life significantly.



Stress has always been a part of our daily lives, beginning with the fight or flight response we inherited from our early ancestors. Many of our stresses are merely natural everyday responses to situations where our bodies react in a simulated way. This type of stress could be viewed as positive or necessary stress because without it, we would probably lead quite inactive, dull and directionless lives.

Although these feelings are a natural part of living in society, how one deals with these feelings can be the difference between a healthy individual or one that is overcome by stress.

Stress can manifest itself physically, mentally, and emotionally and if allowed, can consume a person’s life.

There is a limitless number of triggers for stress, however, the following are generally accepted as being in the top dozen: any sort of loss, from bereavement, divorce and separation to a child leaving home; long-term illness and disability; marriage; moving house; a new job; holidays and work.

We all have our own level of stress, including negative stress, which is manageable for us. This level will vary from person to person and is dependent upon a number of factors, for example, self-confidence and self-esteem, stability of lifestyle and relationships, unresolved issues from our past.

Prevent and recover from a burnout with hypnotherapy and Hypnobalancing™


Why use Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy to prevent burnout and to reduce the impact of stress? Because hypnotherapy has proven throughout the years to help with reducing stress. Hypnosis helps to trigger the body’s relaxation response; the opposite of the fight or flight response which is usually triggered by stressful situations.

When a person worries or is stressed out, it affects the heart rate, blood pressure, digestive function, and increases adrenalin. But during a stress reduction hypnotherapy session, all of those same bodily functions return to normal. A good stress reduction session can teach people how to handle situations they would normally find stressful or challenging. Hypnobalancing assists you to alleviate any unnecessary stress and anxiety which governs your life.

By recognizing the signs and symptoms of excessive stress and their triggers, you can begin to relax and allow yourself to handle stress, while ultimately learning how to enjoy life.



Self-hypnosis has helped many patients with stress. Many sufferers usually report very quickly a noticeable improvement. Pondering, fears, mental and physical tension can be additionally reduced by self-hypnosis.

Wherever possible, Therefore, I teach my patients self-hypnosis to supplement the hypnosis sessions.

After positive trance experiences have been made with my support, self-hypnosis can be learned very quickly. This helps them to progress self-determined outside the therapy. It accelerates the process, deepens and consolidates the achievements. This also promotes the independence of the clients. A good therapist will be superfluous as soon as possible. Self-hypnosis is an excellent self-help method that can be used beyond the actual topic.
