Feeling under pressure is normal and that feeling can be very useful in driving you towards achieving your goals. Stress is not always the enemy. It is when these feelings of stress become overwhelming and leave you feeling like you are unable to cope that it has become a problem.
Stress is a word we all know and the concept of being stressed is something we all can relate to but there are so many ways in which it can manifest that the concept of stress still remains somewhat intangible.
Stress isn't a psychiatric diagnosis, but it's closely linked to your mental health in two important ways:
- Stress can cause mental health problems, and make existing problems worse. For example, if you often struggle to manage feelings of stress, you might develop a mental health problem like anxiety or depression.
- Mental health problems can cause stress. You might find coping with the day-to-day symptoms of your mental health problem, as well as potentially needing to manage medication, health care appointments or treatments, can become extra sources of stress.
There are many ways we can combat stress and I believe effective stress management involves finding solutions that are tailored to the individual; not everything will work for everyone. Together, over a course of 4-6 sessions, we can work together to help you better understand stress, to identify your main stressors and the best ways for you to manage them.
