Stress is sometimes unavoidable in our modern lives, but it does not always have to be negative.

What You Can Expect with Stress Counseling
Results-based stress therapy is proven to reduce symptoms of stress and improve overall health and mental attitude. You and your stress therapist will work together to create a treatment plan that fits with your lifestyle. First, you’ll talk through your current life experiences to identify elements that are causing tension and determine whether certain factors can be controlled. Next, your stress counseling therapist will help you learn to handle stressful events in your life that are unavoidable and teach you techniques and coping mechanisms for making these areas more manageable.
In general, stress is related to both external and internal factors. External factors include the physical environment (job, relationships with others, home, and all the challenges, difficulties, and expectations you confront on a daily basis). Internal factors determine your body’s ability to respond to, and deal with, the external stress-inducing factors. Internal factors that influence your ability to handle stress include your nutritional status, overall health and fitness levels, emotional well-being, and the amount of sleep and rest you get. Your stress counselor will consider all of these elements when working with you to customize a treatment plan.
When to Ask for Help
Uncontrollable, unpredictable, and constant tension has far-reaching consequences on your physical and mental health. Strong evidence implicates stress as a contributing factor in various diseases and conditions, including anxiety disorders, depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, addictive disorders, some cancers, and even the process of aging itself. Stress also increases the frequency and severity of migraine headaches, episodes of asthma, and fluctuations of blood sugar in diabetics. Stress therapy has proven to reduce tension and improve the overall health and mental attitude of those who seek treatment.
