COVID FEARS & LONG COVID

Humanity is currently experiencing possibly the biggest upheaval in its history. The social, emotional, and economic fallout from the Covid crisis worldwide, really has no equal in modern times. It is therefore completely understandable, and in fact common, that many people will be experiencing high levels of anxiety and stress.

 

We could categorise these stresses as separation anxiety, whereby in the initial lockdowns people who were accustomed to regular close physical contact with friends and family members, were suddenly cut off. This has now transformed into almost the exact opposite, where small social bubbles that became very depended on one another, are now being asked to return to work and be more split up.

 

Enormous changes to the way people live their daily lives has resulted in a world far removed from that which they had become accustomed. This coupled with the incredible uncertainty of what now lies ahead, can fill people with dread and anxiety.

 

Recently, a new stress has entered this already emotionally challenging situation in the form of social divide regarding covid vaccinations. In addition to this there are many sufferers of long covid, who have continuing symptoms and uncertainty about their future health, including shortness of breath, fatigue, chest pain, changes to smell and taste but to name a few.

 

 

Hypnotherapy can tackle all of the above stresses and physical ailments head on by using techniques such as NLP ( Neuro-Linguistic Programming), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and CBT(Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). These techniques have been proven to manifest a more positive perspective and illicit profound positive physiological change.
