This page contains information about Jason Demant’s work and career stress reduction sessions
You are reading this because you or someone you care about may need a better work-life balance. Is work dominating your life, leading to high stress and reduced family or social life?
Do any of the following sound like your situation? If you experience any of the items listed below, on a regular basis, it may be time to seek help to reduce your work hours or career pressures.
Do you find every 'logical' excuse to explain why you need to work so much? You then spend more time working than intended?
Does work flow into your evenings, weekends or holidays? This includes using your personal mobile for non-urgent work emails or communication.
Are you concerned about relationship problems and health problems (mental and physical) resulting from overworking or a preoccupation with work?
Do you sometimes feel guilty or weak taking a lunch break or when taking sick days, when genuinely unwell?
Do you find it hard to put off work tasks (even when not urgent) or find it hard to delegate tasks that others could also complete?
Do you have planned healthy activities that help you relax, for example socialising or exercise? Do you sometimes work instead?
Do you like to look productive and busy, sometimes using work to feel important or be seen as intelligent or valuable?
How does your work addiction or Workaholism affect you?
What is driving your need to work harder and for longer hours? Does it stem from a compulsive need to achieve status and success? If this is true for you, you may also be a perfectionist and rarely entirely happy unless everything is ‘just right’.
You may be using work as an escape, to avoid going home to either face your partner and family or another concern, including loneliness.
What are the consequences of work addiction for you? You may not be sleeping or eating properly. You may talk about socialising or exercise, but in reality these often get sacrificed for work.
What are the excuses or arguments you use to justify your long hours or hard work? Maybe you feel you have to strive to climb the career ladder? Do you fear the negative reaction of your boss if you say ‘no’? If you are self-employed, do you fear financial loss or missing out on opportunities? Whatever your arguments are, the result is stress and feeling your life is out of balance.
Sometimes workaholics engage in addictive or unhealthy activities, such as overeating, drinking too much alcohol or gambling, in order to find ways to relax or feel freedom from the straitjacket of work. If you can’t easily turn off from work, then relationships, sleep and blood pressure can be affected. You may be seeking help, since those behaviours or areas of life, are concerning you now.
My approach is to view you as whole, capable and fully able to make choices. As such we will work together, helping you deal well with thoughts and feelings and reduce your overworking lifestyle or workaholic career decisions.
There can be a great deal of shame associated with any addiction. Often work addiction is about how you wish to appear in the eyes of others, be that at home or at work. It can feel a big deal to admit to yourself that something needs to change and often ‘confessing’ to a partner, loved one, friend or colleague, sounds like something simply too big to do. You may feel like you are admitting to ‘failure’.
I listen and support. I never judge anything you have done or anything you might say. Hypnosis sessions are confidential.
Changing your relationship with work
The main work we will do together is examining your relationship with work and the issues that work can bring up for you. How do you deal with the stresses work itself creates? Do you feel more confident and less self-conscious or more in control when engaged in work?
We will look at the underlying reasons for your patterns. These may go back many years and touch on other areas. You may find that these underlying issues also really need to be addressed. For example, has work begun to function as your way of avoiding important life issues or relationships? Do you ever use work as a way to feel important, successful or valuable?
We will find new ways for you to do well with challenges and thereby reduce the addictive aspects of work in your life. Using therapy exercises and hypnotherapy, we will work on bringing back balance.
Living life fully and confidently
Working hard is often okay. It is when you feel a compulsion to do so, that something may need to change. You may view work as simply something to pay the bills or it is a way for you to find meaning and purpose. It is all about a healthy balance, in which you feel calm and that work has the appropriate role in your life.
We may need to look at your boundaries around time management. Do you need to implement healthy and clear boundaries around your work life, ensuring it doesn’t seep into home and leisure time?
It is time to deal better with work stress and also find alternative ways to deal with life’s ups and downs. It is also important to consider healthy ways to relax and nurture your well-being.
Parallel to reducing work addiction, I will support you, if needed, to re-discover confidence and remind yourself of all those goals you once wanted and those gifts you have to give to the world around you. Moving from dependency or addiction will signal for you a movement in a positive and optimistic direction.
Quit Smoking Now! Programme
Jason, You have been very helpful. Changing negative habits for positive ones is really the key. The meditation exercises were great. But the most effective thing is to have someone to talk to. Rarely do you find somebody who takes you by the hand and shows you a way out. My breathing capacity has increased and this changes my whole personality. My children came last night and they asked me whether I have done a face-lift. Of course, the skin looks much better without a veil of smoke and depriving the cells of oxygen and vitamin C. I also became much more assertive.
Alcohol Reduction Therapy
Jason helped me to explore the causes of my negative issues and to develop strategies to ensure long-term term solutions. I 'm very happy to endorse him to anyone considering hypnotherapy. It worked for me! Thank you Jason.
Weight Loss and Emotional Eating
Jason really helped me sort out my problems with my relationship to food. I learnt simple and effective steps to help me eat in a conscious way, know when to eat and when not to. I learnt to identify real hunger and to know when I have had enough. Jason is genuine and caring and was very easy to speak to. I highly recommend him when dealing with weight loss and food issues.

Weight Loss and Emotional Eating
I wholeheartedly recommend Jason's method of coaching. It definitely helped me to cut down on my eating, and I'm also more aware of why I eat when I'm not hungry. In addition, I now have new ways of coping with stress.
Change Behaviour Patterns and Anger Management
Jason enhanced the way that I think and the way that I view people. Because of him, I am more grounded, get less emotionally upset with people, and am truly living up to the goal that we had set during coaching; to become less judgemental of people and be more sensitive
towards other's feelings, and to learn how to communicate with people in way that will make me more effective in receiving what I want. I really feel that Jason was a blessing from God.
Weight Loss and Emotional Eating
Thank you so much for your support and guidance. You were truly an ally in helping me define my goals and structure my thoughts, beliefs and actions towards living each day with more fulfillment and efficacy. Thank you for your remarkable skills, support, accessibility and guidance via our conversations and e-mails these weeks. You have been an incredible and effective coach and a supportive ally who has fuelled my inspiration and provided me with effective tools. I highly recommend you.

Free Initial Consultation
Following your free initial phone consultation, you may be asked to keep a diary of your work habits for a few days and complete a helpful background questionnaire.
Your consultation will be by phone. It is a place for you to hear more about how I work and ask any questions, no matter how small. The call will also help you directly, focusing on your challenges. It should be a positive step for you on your road to recovering your old self. Helping you feel in control and more confident again.
And if, at the end of the consultation, you do not wish to book hypnosis sessions, that is totally fine. There is no pressure and you are under no obligation whatsoever.

Four or six powerful sessions of coaching, including therapy exercises and powerful hypnotherapy.
Though there is some structure, it is vital that sessions are about your unique needs rather than a generic approach. I have a results-driven focus.
Sessions are confidential and supportive and it is also important that you feel comfortable and able to talk about anything at all.

I give you free, unlimited, email contact between sessions. Be in touch as often as you need.
