    not sure if you would call it cognitive but have you thought about hypnotherapy?? I have a cd which was made specifically for me and i found it great for stress. I believe NLP or something like that is good too but thats expensive. My cd cost 30. I can give you the link if you like?? ^reiki^

    Hi Nicki

    Have you heard of EFT? It stands for emotional freedom technique, and it is a sort of combination of hypnotherapy and acupressure. I have a good friend trained in its use, though there are not many practioners in the UK at the moment. I have never used it, so cannot speak from personal experience, but know a lot of people who seem to rate it....
    Try a google search on EFT to find out more....

    Hi Nikki .... i have done quite a bit of work around stress so maybe i can help you?
    can you tell me a little about the way you experience stress and how you respond to stressful situations e.g. anger, tears, shouting etc .... 
    what are the types of things you do to cope at the moment with stress?
    Sometimes a useful tool is to keep a little diary of when you feel stressed in the day e.g. at tesco's and not served quick enough .... and what your response was .... anger at having to wait ...
    this gives you an idea of what is triggering your stress and what your emotional response is, and can help you start to solve it, as you know what you are looking for ...
    I have quite a bit of information that i can either post you or talk to you over the phone .... but give me some other info and i will try and work out something for you to do to reduce your stress levels.
    You can IM or post here if you want ....

    Hello, autogenic training is a useful technique too - my mum practices it and i;ve found it useful during ivf.  just look it up on google and you'll find some info.  once you've done the course, you have the tools for life,
