Stress Management

Counselling and Therapy for Stress Management in Cranage & Allostock

Stress is a completely normal human emotion and manageable amounts of stress can even be motivational. Too much stress, however, can cause prolonged stress and be damaging to your mental and even physical health. Work stress, relationship stress, family problems, and financial problems can all contribute to unhealthy amounts of stress, which may result in unhealthy habits. Stress counselling and therapy for stress management with Cathy Vincent Counselling Services can help you to manage your feelings effectively and healthily.

Counselling for Stress Management in Cranage

Stress chemicals cortisol and adrenaline provoke the fight-or-flight reaction, and can have a physical reaction on your body. When you are under pressure, these hormones are released to make you more alert, increasing feelings of anxiety, tension, and physical symptoms like shaking. Unhealthy stress levels triggered by frustrating or difficult situations can affect your mental and physical health in the long-term. Stress counselling in Cranage involves talking through your stressful situations, taking new approaches or interpretations of them, and rationalising them by breaking them down into more manageable chunks to then deal with.
