Get Started

What is stress?

Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It comes from an event or thought that relates to frustration, anger, or nervousness. Stress can stem from relationship issues, issues at work, and many other causes.

Remember that stress in the right context is normal and even healthy. It's a common reaction to a demand, danger, or challenge, helping you adjust to new situations.

However, excessive and disproportionate feelings of stress can disrupt your daily life. You can become used to feeling chronic stress despite the negative effects it has. If you feel overwhelmed, stress management therapy sessions can help.

Symptoms of excessive stress

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

Many people experience behavioural and emotional symptoms of stress as well. You may feel anxious or prone to irritation. A lack of focus and excessive worrying can also be signs of excessive stress.

In the long term, stress can lead to anxiety, depression, and social withdrawal. The good news is using an online therapy service can help you address these symptoms. Stress counselling can connect you with stress reduction techniques and can also help you find new ways of thinking that reduce stress.

How can stress be addressed?

Habits and routines focused on relaxing and unwinding can help manage stress in the long term. Exercise, a healthy diet, and spending time with friends and family can all aid in stress reduction.

Talk therapy is a common treatment that allows you to talk through your issues related to stress. This can be a crucial first step to building new habits and routines that work for you. A counsellor can help you identify your triggers and change the way you think about stressful situations.

Not sure where to start? Speaking to a 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.
