Stress Management? and how can it help you

STRESS helped and treated with CBT Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnotherapy at the Carterton Therapy Practice providing effective brief therapy for Stress Management using CBT Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnotherapy.

Stress is caused by distinct, measureable life stressors, these life stressors can be ranked by the median degree of stress they produce (leading to the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale). Thus, stress was traditionally conceptualized to be a result of external insults beyond the control of those experiencing the stress. More recently, however, it has been argued that external circumstances do not have any intrinsic capacity to produce stress, but instead their effect is mediated by the individual's perceptions, capacities, and understanding.

"Hypnosis seems to significantly raise the activity of B-cells and T-cells, both key to immune response in highly hypnotizable subjects."
American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis, 1995

In order to develop an effective stress management programme it is first necessary to identify the factors that are central to the individual controlling his/her stress, and to identify the intervention methods which effectively target these factors. Stress focuses on the transaction between you and your external environment (this is known as the Transactional Model). The model conceptualizes stress as a result of how a stressor is appraised and how you appraises your resources to cope with the stressor. The model breaks the stressor-stress link by proposing that if stressors are perceived as positive or challenging rather than a threat, and if the stressed individual is confident that he/she possesses adequate rather than deficient coping strategies, stress may not necessarily follow the presence of a potential stressor. Stress can be reduced by helping you change your perceptions of stressors, providing you with strategies to help you cope and improving your confidence in your ability to do so.
