Online Therapy for Stress

Online Therapy for Stress in Ontario from Registered Psychotherapists | Psychotherapy CollectiveIn our fast-paced modern world, we all know how it feels to be stressed. Constant financial pressures, managing difficult family relationships, and unrealistic societal expectations can make us feel trapped in a stressful state, trying to understand how to cope with stress. As opposed to specific acute stressors, like a work deadline, many of the stressors we experience are chronic, meaning that they are less intense and longer in duration.

When we are feeling chronically stressed, our physical and mental health is impacted. This experience of stress can manifest in how we feel, the amount of energy we have, and our ability to experience pleasure or connect with others. In addition, we typically respond to stress through avoidance or distraction which can result in being more critical of ourselves and our experiences.

While many causes of stress may be out of your control, working with a stress therapist can help you examine the sources and impact of stress in your life. By becoming aware of the social and internal expectations we place on ourselves, we can develop a self compassionate approach as we navigate life’s natural stressors. By understanding how stress impacts you specifically, alongside your psychotherapist, you can develop stress management techniques and alternative responses to stress that help facilitate your well-being.

At the core of my work with clients we seek to explore our unique responses to three fundamental questions; What direction do I want/need to shift my life towards? What actions can I take to make this a reality? What is getting in the way of achieving this? I believe you know what is truly best for you and my role is to support you through this therapeutic exploration rather than lead it. I work with individuals, couples, and youth 16+.
