Get Started

What is stress?

Stress is the feeling of emotional or physical tension that comes from an event or thought that stems from frustration, anger, or nervousness. It's a normal reaction to demand or challenge, helping you adjust to new situations. Stress can stem from relationship issues, issues at work, and many other causes.

However, excessive and disproportionate feelings of stress can disrupt your daily life. If you feel overwhelmed by stress, therapy sessions can help.


You may be stressed if you're feeling body aches and pains, your heart racing, dizziness, or shaking. Other symptoms include high blood pressure, jaw clenching and tension, a weakened immune system, or digestive problems.

In the long term, stress can lead to anxiety, depression, and withdrawal. The good news is using an online therapy service can help you address these symptoms.

How can stress be addressed?

Habits and routines focused on relaxing and unwinding can help manage stress long-term. Talk therapy is a common treatment that allows you to talk through your issues. This can be a crucial first step to building new habits and routines that work for you.

Not sure where to start? Speaking to an counsellor can help you address the issue and get you started on a stress management plan. Continued sessions can help you make sustained progress toward reducing the influence of stress on your life.
