Coaching and NLP – Stress and Stress Management and work stress
A certain level of stress is actually useful to you and help your body to prepare for certain challenges, so it’s probably impossible to live without any stress. But too much stress, especially if it’s day in, day out, can cause physical and emotional problems. Common causes of stress include stress at work, redundancy, money worries, illness or injury, marriage breakdown and bereavement.
Work stress can cause symptoms such as high blood pressure, headaches, insomnia, palpitations and can eventually lead to stress related illness such as ulcer, hypertension and (IBS) irritable bowel syndrome. It can also lower immunity and cause low morale, relationship problems and lower motivation in personal life at work and at home. Everybody has a different threshold to stress.
Stress and anxiety often lead to one feeling overwhelmed, which is when the body’s natural defences are triggered, and the hormone cortisol is released into the blood. This has the effect of raising heart and breathing rates – in preparation for the stress of the situation at hand. If this is not properly managed this scenario can lead to a perpetual feeling of pressure or nervous tension, which can be exhausting for sufferers.
Stress can lead to a person’s immune system being affected so they are more susceptible to illness. Work stress also drives people into finding ways to cope with how they are feeling, sometimes turning to excessive drinking, drugs or other behaviours which may provide short term relief but are often damaging to their health, relationships and self-esteem. This can ultimately leave them feeling much worse and quite powerless.

Stress and anxiety are related as anyone feeling overly stressed will be anxious that the stress levels will continue; and anyone suffering from anxiety will have a level of stress on them. We all need some level of both stress and anxiety to survive, compete and grow and develop as individuals. Also a certain level of stress is useful for things such as exams, interviews and for sporting events, as it helped to keep you alert, focused and keep your mind on the goal.
Using hypnotherapy to discover and work on any key issues and any root cause is always where I would suggest starting and after we can work on the present, the here-and-now and for real life situations. It is very important to manage stress in order to feel happier and calmer and more in control through life. Within hypnotherapy, NLP, breathing, visualisation, learning to use your imagine better and through ideas from positive psychology there are plenty of options on how I can help you overcome both stress and anxiety.
Work Related Stress
Well-designed, organised and managed work is good for us but when insufficient attention to job design, work organisation and management has taken place, it can result in Work related stress. Work stress develops because a person is unable to cope with the demands being placed on them. Stress, including work related stress, can be a significant cause of illness and is known to be linked with high levels of sickness absence, staff turnover and other issues such as more errors.
Stress can hit anyone at any level of the business and recent research shows that work related stress is widespread and is not confined to particular sectors, jobs or industries. That is why a population-wide approach is necessary to tackle it.
Some things which can happen in stressful work places include:
- Disputes and disaffection within the group
- Increase in staff turnover
- Increase in complaints and grievances
- Increased sickness absence
- Increased reports of stress
- Difficulty in attracting new staff
- Poor performance
- Customer dissatisfaction or complaints
So if you’re individually experiencing any of the signs of stress, you do need to take control and take responsibility for yourself – for yourself and your loved ones. Helping with work stress and issues around personal and anything connected to you.
