When we went into lockdown last March, it was a huge change for all of us to process. As the weeks dragged on many people began to feel the affects of isolation and uncertainty, and whether we realise it or not this has had an impact on the quality of our mental health.
Our brains will have unconsciously adapted to lock-downs, interacting less with people and generally having a slower pace of life. So when it comes to unlocking and going back to work in a world that feels different, it can cause anxiety within us. The unlocking takes as much psychological energy as it did to lock-down. The anxiety of not knowing and the invisible health threat does not simply disappear, because we are told we now have our freedoms back.
Our minds need time to adjust to the changing world around us, and if you are feeling anxious then hypnotherapy is a great way to release this anxiety, so that you feel relaxed and able to take on new challenges.
