Stress can become a vicious cycle without the stress management techniques needed to manage it. The words “…But I can’t relax……”can become commonplace in a person’s life.

In small amounts, stress can be tolerated. However, prolonged or intense stress levels can impact on our relationships, work performance, and lead to panic attacks and/or depression. Common symptoms can include irritability, lack of concentration, sleeping problems, negative thinking, changes in appetite, lack of motivation, loss of libido, social withdrawal and mood swings. Stress can also contribute to physical symptoms such as skin disorders, headaches, muscular tension, high blood pressure and other bodily aches and pains.

What is Stress Management Counselling & Psychotherapy?

Engaging with therapy at Insight Matters can allow you to unburden yourself and gain a fresh mindset so that you can open up to learning new coping strategies. You discover and implement stress management approaches like:

  • time management
  • anger management
  • deep breathing
  • improving coping strategies
  • developing a more positive mindset
  • balanced life approaches
  • dealing with burnout
  • anxiety reduction
  • using guided imagery to reduce stress
  • managing work stress
  • mindfulness
  • relaxation techniques
  • work-life balance

When stress reactions decrease our quality of life, psychotherapy can help us to make serious changes in order to live in a happier and more effective way. When we frequently respond to stress with anxiety, fear, anger or depression, time is spent exploring these initial reactions as part of the process. Stress management psychotherapy emphasizes the importance of understanding and thereby gaining control of personal sources of anxiety which amplify the individual’s particular response to stress. Blind spots, inner conflicts and unresolved trauma provide life’s stressors with opportunities to slowly take hold and grow beyond the person’s ability to cope with them.
