Stress & Anxiety Part 3. How can I manage stress and anxiety?

March 11th, 2015

In our modern society there is often a feeling of having to ‘deal’ with stress and anxiety. Because of this, many people suffer in silence.

Often you can help to lessen your symptoms with a combination of relaxation, exercise, change in diet and breaking the habits that trigger your stress and anxiety. Little changes such as taking that dance class that you always fancied or spending more time with your friends can help. Or you could try stress and anxiety therapy to gain a new perspective. It is also important to learn to stay in the present instead of worrying about things that have happened in the past or may happen in the future.

If you are struggling to find the right combination of things to help you manage your symptoms alone, there is a range of therapies available which can help to alleviate the reoccurrence of stress and the overwhelming feelings of anxiety. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Talking Treatment and Mindfulness (MBSR) are all therapies that can help you to face your issues, rebuild your self-esteem and get life back to normal.

Through stress and anxiety counselling you can learn to identify and address the root causes of your feelings and develop techniques that will allow you to self soothe when you encounter them in the future. You counsellor will work with you to build a treatment plan and consider lifestyle changes so that you no longer have to suffer in silence.

Stress and anxiety can cause you to have habitually negative and depressing thoughts. If you feel that you need some help with focusing on the positive and enjoying the present, contact us and ask for counselling for stress and anxiety.
