Stress Management Therapy
Stress is the feeling of being overwhelmed or unable to cope with mental or emotional pressure and is our body’s response to pressure. Many different situations or life events can cause stress. It is often triggered when we experience something new, unexpected or that threatens our sense of self, or when we feel we have little control over a situation.
Sometimes, this stress response can be useful: it can help us push through fear or pain so we can run a marathon or deliver a speech, for example. Our stress hormones will usually go back to normal quickly once the stressful event is over, and there won’t be any lasting effects. However, too much stress can cause negative effects. It can leave us in a permanent stage of fight or flight, leaving us overwhelmed or unable to cope. Long term, this can affect our physical and mental health, affecting our work, relationship and health.
Successful stress management requires knowing how to control the stress factors, in your life. At KlearMinds, we can help you develop the tools you need, to feel confident and in control, no matter what stress you face.
Whilst stress cannot be removed from our lives completely, it is possible to learn techniques that reduce the impact of stress in our day to day life, and to develop essentials skills, to prevent excessive stress recurring in the future. Our stress counsellors and stress coaches use a powerful combination of CBT, counselling and coaching techniques to help you:
- Understand the really important factors, that cause your stress to exceed comfortable levels and what you can do to stop this happening in future
- Discover how to replace uncomfortable physiological symptoms of stress with confidence, ease and control
- Learn why, in particular situations, where others appear calm, you may feel stressed or anxious and steps you can take to change this
- Discover simple strategies you can use to tackle stress situations and feel more calm and in control
- Learn how you can prevent stressful situations from escalating or recurring in the future
- Discover how to create balance in your life, which reduces stress and creates more happiness and contentment in your days.
- If your stress is pervasive, you can discover how to remove the roots of particular stress responses, commonly developed in childhood and adolescence, which cause unnecessary discomfort and unease in your current life. This way you can become calm and confident in situations where you thought, only other people can have that feeling.
We set clear goals and achieved them which disproved my thoughts that therapy was a waste of money/I’d be strung along forever making marginal or temporary improvements…. The techniques and clarity that I have gained have ended the constant mental battle for all of the issues that I felt I had… Read More
I had a great experience with Klearminds. Karen helped me through a difficult moment in my life, when I had just moved to the UK and had lost my bearings. She then subsequently helped me through a separation, and I am very glad I was talking to her at the time and not going through it alone. Karen was really professional, provided great advice, and… Read More
