When we are stressed, the primitive survival part of our brain has decided that we are in some form of danger. The ‘stress response’ prepares the body for fight or flight, and suppresses any other functions that are not necessary. This can include the digestive system, the immune system, and the reproductive system. During times of stress, our survival brain feels it is not safe for us to reproduce and therefore the bodily systems needed for sexual activity are adversely affected. This is why it is common for people to lose their sex drive when anxious, stressed or depressed, and find their physical performance and enjoyment is affected. Symptoms may include inhibited sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, inability to become aroused, premature ejaculation, vaginismus, and lack of orgasm.
Hypnotherapy helps you to relax and reduce anxiety and stress. When our brain and body return to the ‘relaxation response’ (homeostatis), the functions of our body such as the reproductive system that have been hindered by the stress response, can return to normal function once again. You will receive a free relaxation CD at your Initial Consultation to help begin the process of relaxing and moving forward towards how you want hings to be.
All clients are treated with the utmost sensitivity and respect. There is absolute confidentiality, so you can feel comfortable, confident and free to discuss whatever issues you are currently facing.
