Stress management and how Edmonton Counselling Services  can help

Stress management is a crucial part of any individual’s healthy mental adjustment. While everyone faces stress on a daily basis, everyone’s threshold and reactions to stress are different. It starts becoming a problem when stress starts impairing your ability to function normally or cause extreme anxiety. This is where therapy comes in. When you walk into Edmonton Counselling services office, I will assess the effects that stress has on you. With subsequent sessions, I will determine the root causes of your stress and teach you ways to navigate it. Therapy has been proven to be the most efficient way to manage stress levels. Therapy does not guarantee that you won’t have any songstress in your life ever again. Rather, it focuses on teaching you skills to manage your stress.

Why am I getting so stressed out?

Stress can be caused by a wide range of issues. Stress can be caused by:

  • Relationship stressors– Birth of a child, marriage, divorce, break-ups, chronic illness in partners, infidelity
  • Financial stressors– Loss of job, sudden chronic illness of self or member of the family
  • Health stressors– disease, terminal diseases, communicable diseases
  • Work stressors– strict management, unrealistic deadlines, hostile environment, mismatched job
  • Psychological stressors– fears, insecurities, negative attitudes and perceptions, change and unrealistic expectations of self

However, all stresses magnify to a problem level when you are unable to handle them. At Edmonton Counselling Services, I will help you to understand attitudes that promote healthier adjustment with stress.

How does stress affect my relationship?

When you are stressed out, you’re likely to lash out at someone you don’t perceive as a threat. Moreover, stress is contagious in nature. When your partner is stressed, you are more likely to be stressed as well. In other cases, people may bottle up stress and, in the process, become more and more secluded. This often results in couples feeling like they are not able to “reach” their partner anymore. I can help you to understand the ways in which stress is affecting your relationship. By adopting positive modes of communication and a proactive attitude, you can rebuild your relationship with your partner.

How do I manage stress?

The first step to stress management is to practice deep breathing. As simple as it may sound, this allows you to step back and re-evaluate the situation. When you introspect on your thoughts, you can assess the negative thought patterns in your brain. These negative thought patterns like obsessing,  and worrying are what lead our brain to experience stress. By challenging these negative thought patterns, I can help you manage your current stress levels. At Edmonton Counselling Services, we also focus on ensuring that you are capable of handling future stressors. By teaching you simple stress-relieving techniques, we can also help prevent future build-up of stress. With my expertise, we can build a life for you that is stress-free and in your control.
