Therapy for Stress
The best action you can take to treat the stress in your life is to understand the relationship between anxiety and stress. How you respond to anxiety and stress will determine how quickly you can overcome the high stress levels in your life.
You may not even notice when you’re stressed because it’s become such a normal part of your life — a part of your personality. We all go through each day battling everything that comes along in our lives. With society’s seemingly endless pace, we feel like we have to keep up or fall out of sync. This puts an enormous amount of pressure on each of us to not only perform but perform at our best. This can lead many people to seek out therapy for stress. Stress therapy consists of two goals. The first is to help you learn how to effectively cope with stressful situations; the second involves restructuring thoughts.
When individuals feel as if they have no control over life’s seemingly endless irritations, complications, dilemmas, and worries, stress therapy becomes the lifeboat, an indispensable survival tool. Therapy by a qualified, knowledgeable professional gives individuals an opportunity to connect with someone who thoroughly understands the implications and solutions for combating stress.
Stress and anxiety are natural—until they interfere with your life. Avoiding things that increase your anxiety will not solve the underlying issues causing you distress nor will it stop your stress and anxiety. And, if you don’t resolve the root cause of your anxiety, it will resurface in other areas of your life. Don’t suffer needlessly. By addressing your anxiety now you can experience the life you want and deserve.
Worry, stress and anxiety can devastate the quality of your life. It’s hard to be happy and motivated when you’re facing so many challenges every day—challenges that only continue to grow. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and can’t seem to get back on track, even after extended time away from stressful activities, it might be time to seek out professional stress therapy. Stress doesn’t have to control your life. Get help from a qualified therapist who understands and cares about your mental health.

"Brian was an important member of my staff at the out-patient PROMIS Counselling Centre and in-patient PROMIS Recovery Centre for two years from 2000 until 2002. He worked initially in marketing but was also very helpful in counselling patients who had stressful negative experiences in their lives, as he had done in his. He was loyal, diligent and trustworthy. I now count him as a friend as well as a professional colleague."
