Stress Counseling

Stress comes from the body’s reactions to demands or stressors. These reactions can be physical (muscle tension, headaches, high blood pressure, or colds) and mental (feeling angry, frustrated, upset, distracted, or not in control). Stress causes fatigue, irritability, lack of concentration, and leads to sickness, disability, and burnout if left untreated. Stress also ages us. In sum, stress makes us feel bad.

Short-term stress counseling will help you:

  • Feel better faster by learning skills and coping techniques you can immediately start using to manage your stress, anxiety, and frustration.
  • Increase personal satisfaction at work and home by learning what satisfies you as a unique individual and how to get those satisfiers into your life more frequently.
  • Improve interpersonal relationships by developing win-win communication techniques.

 

Stress Diagnostics

Discover your personal StressType through a 100 question diagnostic tool developed from applied research on tens of thousands of participants at the Canadian Institute of Stress. The questionnaire examines your ability to cope with stressors. Your results determine the appropriate “prescription” for your particular StressType.

Once your StressType and “prescription” have been determined, your stress consultant will help you take action to help you better manage your stress and feel younger.
