Counselling for Stress and Coping with Burn-out

Are you feeling stressed out? How would you know? Perhaps you are suffering from some of these symptoms: always busy, feel guilty relaxing, can’t switch off, irritability, problems sleeping, heart palpitations, sweats, tension headaches, upset stomach, shortness of breath, difficulty concentrating, repetitive thoughts, issues with anger, increased or reduced appetite, eating junk food, increased use of caffeine or alcohol, losing or forgetting things...

Stress is a part of everyday living but, out of control, it can have serious effects on our quality of life. If it isn’t dealt with, stress can build up and lead to difficulties managing emotions, problems in relationships, decreased effectiveness in all areas of our lives and serious physical problems like heart attacks, chronic illnesses and sometimes mental health issues.

The good news is that stress can be managed and reduced. Psychotherapy and counselling for stress management provides an environment in which you can explore what is causing you to feel stressed and learn strategies and practical tools to deal with that stress. With this kind of help, it’s possible to reduce the impact stress has on your life and develop a greater sense of happiness, satisfaction and fulfillment in your everyday activities.
