Stress occurs frequently in our lives nowadays and it may be a normal function to our life. Stress is defined as a response to positive and negative experiences that we encounter, ranging from a presentation at work to a death in the family. Some stressful experiences may not be life altering while others can have an effect on our behaviours and mental wellbeing.
So when do we seek help and why? Few people will deny being stressed at some point in life but when the stress becomes unbearable and ongoing, it is defined as chronic. Chronic stress can have a detrimental effect on both our body and mind.
Therapy provides you an outlet to emote and share your experiences with a professional who is trained to provide you an empathetic, non-judgmental view of your issues. Therapists are trained in evidence based techniques that can help you reduce, eliminate or manage your stress better.
