Stress Counselling in Vancouver & Maple Ridge
Stress from your job, home or social life may be taking a toll on you and you might be finding it difficult to cope. You may be experiencing low energy, frequent colds, difficulty sleeping, muscle tension, upset stomach, and headaches.
Sometimes chronic stress can signify other concerns going on such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and dissatisfaction with life. Stress can also negatively impact one’s health because frequent high levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, has been found to impair virtually all of the systems of the body (e.g., cardiovascular, immune, etc.) in addition to memory and learning.
Fortunately, never in history have we better understood the nature of stress and how to best manage it. From there, a combination of mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and holistic life planning will help you to reduce life stress in an ongoing and lasting manner.
In counselling sessions you will first learn to understand exactly what stress is, the nature of your own personal stressors, as well as how to ground yourself in moments of overwhelm.
