Stress is not just stress. It becomes especially problematic when stress has a negative connotation and leads to pressure, a feeling of being overwhelmed and rushed. This has not only psychological but also physical consequences. Distress arises when we are unable to cope with tasks or challenges, or when we are under pressure to perform or to meet deadlines. Often, tunnel vision sets in and those affected see no way out of their situation and put themselves under even more pressure. In hypnosis, goal-serving and solution-oriented approaches can be made accessible in the state of trance. Thus, hypnosis helps the client to better deal with the challenging situation.
