Stress is a normal psychological and physical reaction to the demands that life places on us. In small amounts, stress is useful in motivating us to complete a task. However large amounts of stress can lead to symptoms such as feelings of hostility and anger, frustration, lack of tolerance, crying, feeling overwhelmed, depression. Stress can also causes physical symptoms such as stomach ache, headaches, shortness of breath. Excessive stress can be detrimental to your relationships, performance at work and quality of life.
Stress management counselling can help you to understand your own patterns and behaviours around stress, identify stressors and give you strategies and skills to manage the stress in your life.
