If Joanna Lumley admits to hypnotherapy, then it must be ok!
Joanna Lumley suffered from stressful panic attacks in her mid-20s, while she was in a West End play and struggling to raise her young son, Jamie, as a single mother. Lumley overcame it through hypnosis and by talking herself through her fears. “I knew I was going to make myself waterproof against it. It would not happen again, not on my watch,” she said, as reported in the Telegraph
Stress is a scary if not fascinating powerful human instinct. In fact, sometimes stress might get so intense one’s mind has spiralled out of control with the pressure caused by the stress itself and can actually cause the nervous-system to become weak.
Each individual responds differently to stress. A person reacts fast when they feel threatened. It is similar to animal instinct. This response translates into stress. We know exactly which situations and people cause us stress. More often than not responding to the threat based on past experiences which creates this particular reaction.
For example, you might be frightened of your boss because you were scared of your father as a child, or you find it difficult to say ‘no’, because you might have been bullied at school. Or, you might just have taken on too much, either in your work life, or personal life, or both. This likely to be because you cant say no and want to please others instead of taking care of yourself and become stressed out. Feelings of being utterly overwhelmed and unable to cope with rational thought processes will often follow suit.
Life is full of obstacles. Hey we wouldn’t be human if the day-to-day existence was completely hassle-free. Yet sometimes, these obstacles can just become too much, feelings of extreme stress take over, both physically and mentally and we can’t see the wood through the trees.
The key to the stress struggle? MANAGING IT SO IT DOESN’T MANAGE US!

- Being overwhelmed at how much we have on our plate
- Waking every day enveloped with feelings of being swamped before even getting out of bed
- Seeing an email from a boss or client, and stressing and being short of breath, before even knowing what the message is about!
- Finding it nigh on impossible to be productive at work
