Menopausal symptoms can put women under an extraordinary amount of stress. Your memory, sleep and even your sex drive can be thrown into flux by hormonal changes. The most important thing to do at this time is to reduce the stress in your life. Hypnotherapy can help.
The symptoms of menopause
There are approximately 34 known symptoms of menopause, and they’re largely due to changes in the brain.
Oestrogen is one of the main chemicals that causes these changes and it also alters the parts of the brain which regulate the following:
- Sex drive
All of this can lead to anxiety, depression, weight gain and low confidence at a time – mid-life – when all of these things are already common for both women and men.
Add to that busy lives, jobs, managing kids, teenagers, elderly parents needing more help, problems in long-term relationships, and financial issues. There is often a lot of reflection and ‘what ifs’.
How hypnotherapy can help with menopause
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can increase your understanding of menopause and change your perspective from being overwhelmed to building the confidence to maintain a normal, healthy lifestyle.
Hypnotherapy offers you a natural way to increase your production of serotonin (our feel-good chemical) and improve menopause symptoms leading better sleep, energy, mood, and libido.
Studies report that women who participate in organised relaxation like this see a 30% reduction in their hot flushes, plus a significant drop in tension, anxiety, and even depression.
They also reported fewer mood swings and more stable emotions overall.
What happens during hypnotherapy sessions for menopause?
Our sessions will help you focus on what’s going on in your life. You will become more aware of everything that is piling into your stress bucket:
- What’s is happening in your life?
- What’s happening in your brain?
- What’s happening in your body?
Acknowledging the contents of your stress bucket can be a vital first step in dealing with menopause. Being self-aware can help you to understand why you are feeling the way you are, and give you the tools to manage menopause symptoms effectively.
