stress relief hypnosis at home…
The use of hypnosis works on the subconscious level to instil new positive coping mechanisms and reinforces existing positive inner resources. It helps to achieve balance and harmony between the mind and the body, instilling relaxation to release tension and other physical symptoms; whilst also instilling more positive thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Our stress relief hypnosis program offers you options of choice, consideration and lots more besides. Positive stress exists of course, and we want to retain its benefits. It is the negative areas where our stress relief hypnosis program helps.
So what is special about our stress relief hypnosis program, well quiet simply its different. It has interlinked sessions which means it is structured, and with structure new information, options and considerations are more easily understood and retained. Also our stress relief hypnosis program uses a process called Ongoing progressive session induction method or OPSIM for short. Developed in the early 90’s by the program author Michael Mahoney a clinical hypnotherapist who developed the first IBS home use program the IBS Audio Program 100. Since then, he was produced several other recordings including this stress relief hypnosis program, and with it built an OPSIM structure to maximise its benefits to the listener.

Session 1 Commentary Introduction (approximate running time 20:29)
The mind and body connection are inseparably linked, they respond to internal and external stressors which may be real or perceived. The mind and body connection results in changes in our thoughts, feelings and emotions. This introduction simply outlines this process, helping you to understand what is going on inside yourself, and gives a foundation for you to build upon. You are encouraged to listen to this introductory session as a reminder and reinforcing process to help obtain maximum benefit from this program.
Session 2 Learning to Be More (approximate running time 17:54) *

Session 4 Letting Go (approximate running time 20:21)
This session brings awareness of how negative thoughts and expectations can resonate within us. The process used in this session will help you to take in gentle suggestions revealing to you that even though in the past you may have made progress and then perhaps faltered and returned to the familiar negative thought patterns, now you are different, now you are taking a different path, choosing a different way of moving on. You will be gently reminded that you now are doing something different and something structured, and being encouraged positively, and because of this the outcome can be different.
Session 5 Each Moment (approximate running time 17:49)
This session encourages you to begin to use your new way of thinking to push back barriers and limitations which have held you back in the past.

Now you are changing, feeling stronger, better, freer and more in control.
Session 6 Reflection (approximate running time 15:33)

Session 7 Confidence (approximate running time 20:07)
Confidence is not difficult to grow, you have to simply learn to trust yourself, to let yourself be in touch with your own awareness and understanding, in touch with your innate ability to learn and relearn new ways of thinking and feeling. You are now learning to have renewed confidence in yourself and to know that you can and will achieve those things you want to achieve in a way that is gentle yet effective.
Session 8 Light of Consciousness (approximate running time 26:58)
This is a longer gentle session which encourages you to go deeper into relaxation using imagery and suggestion. Also using colour with suggestion to help you to allow negative thoughts and expectations to dissolve and be replaced with further calm and positive thoughts and feelings.

Session 9 Parachute Time (approximate running time 20:56)
By encouraging you to let go of negatives, this session uses the gentle imagery of drifting down slowly and quietly into relaxation as if beneath a large parachute of safety. You will be reminded that whatever needs to be changed in your life, can be changed and that you can let go of whatever needs to be released. You can embrace every positive emotion, recognising that even negative emotion can provide learning and understanding too and can then be released.
Session 10 Inner Universe (approximate running time 26:05)
Using metaphor to reinforce positive suggestions and learning, this session encourages you to build an inner universe. You will benefit from an abundance of pleasant imagery that will ease you gently into relaxation while you still move on and progress, by letting go of stress and demands, allowing negative thoughts and attitudes to drop away. As you continue to move on in a positive way, you will be free to develop new positive thoughts, pathways and ideas.
Session 11 Dilution of Negatives (approximate running time 21:31)
Using gentle guided imagery, this session encourages you to relax completely, broadening and expanding this relaxation as it becomes more and more a part of you.

You are guided with gentle imagery of clouds and sunshine which helps you to reinforce control in your life while letting go of burdens.
Session 12 Golden Threads (approximate running time 20:26)

We all have a place in life! In fact we have many places we are meant to be, a place in relationships, socially and all aspects of our life.
