Is Lockdown making you feel Anxious about Christmas ?

A Time of Peace and Goodwill or Stress and Anxiety ?

“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, let your heart be light, from now on our troubles will be out of sight….” or so the old song goes.

Well, this year Christmas is going to be different to any other that’s ever gone before. The pandemic is unlikely to be over by then, so we need to be able to adapt.

Usually we might be thinking: How will I afford all the presents and the food? Have I bought the kids everything they wanted? Will the turkey turn out like mother’s used to and she’ll definitely let me know if it isn’t ? Will there be a huge row over some trivial thing and is there any remote chance that someone might buy me something special that might make all that stress and worry be worth the effort.

Well, Christmas will probably be much quieter this year, as big extended family gatherings will not be possible. We may not be able to see our loved ones other than on Zoom, we may be on our own for the first time or we may have to rethink all the usual plans for financial reasons. The whole prospect might be making you feel very anxious, sad, angry, stressed, overwhelmed, or even depressed.

Wouldn’t it be good if there was a way to cope with it all? Wouldn’t it be nice to just enjoy yourself, to deal with each little problem or restriction in a calm and relaxed way knowing that you are coping and in control. To be able to have a Christmas in one form or another and to enjoy yourself whatever the circumstances, and just take it all in your stride.

You can’t change the way Christmas will have to be this year, but you can change the way you are and your thought patterns surrounding the events of Christmas.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you to see all the problems and difficulties for what they are. If you can deal with things in a calm and relaxed manner it leaves you free to enjoy all the pleasure that you might otherwise miss.

Facing life’s problems in a calm, positive, confident, and relaxed way means you can deal with whatever situation you find yourself in at Christmas or at any time, even a pandemic.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is an amazingly simple and enjoyable way of creating new and positive thought patterns.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy doesn’t look at your past. You can’t change the past and trying to find the cause of your current problems by digging up old traumas can make things worse. But you can deal with the situation you find yourself in today, you can start to take small positive steps towards the positive, happy, bright Christmas that you want and the successful, confident future you deserve.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy provides you with all the tools you need to make that future a reality. The first thing my clients notice is that they are sleeping better, always a benefit!!

I can help you to take back control of your life (and Christmas), to deal with stress and anxiety, to help you become positive, confident and relaxed, to deal with relationship issues, to get rid of phobias or just to “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas…”
