Online Therapy for Stress
In 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.
