Stress is something we all encounter. A little stress is good for the body and alerts the mind. Stress is an individual’s response to external problems such as impossibly high expectations from employers and families, constant life interruptions that affect our ability to carry out the usual routines of daily life or demands such as loans and mortgages.
Stress can have an overwhelming effect on our lives; symptoms being physical, psychological, behavioural and sometimes as acute as a state of ‘daze’ followed by further withdrawal or agitation, over activity and signs of panic. If stress symptoms are affecting you, it is time to seek treatment.
Our treatment approach for stress
Our approach to treating stress combines individualised treatment programmes with treatments based on current clinical evidence. There are two types of treatment available for stress: talking therapies and medication. Psychotherapy, counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help you understand your stressors and help you learn more positive emotional and behavioural responses to stressful situations and feelings.
Medication can also be effective if your stress is severe or goes on. It may help you to cope better so that you can start to enjoy life and deal with problems effectively again.
