Your response to stress is a very personal one. Although there often are similarities, no one else will have quite the same stress response or stress effects. A stress response is linked to the fight-flight-freeze response which the brain activates when you believe something is a threat to your self-preservation.
When you attend stress counselling at Doncaster Life Resolutions, we will explore your personal stress response and how to retrain your brain.
Feeling stressed is something everyone feels from time to time, whether it’s something others might consider simple, like meeting new people, or something most people agree is a big deal, like starting a new job.
And it is not good when that feeling does not go away, or when you block it out and tell yourself you’ve learned to live with it. Too much stress, or stress for too long, can affect your health mentally, emotionally and physically.
Is Stress all bad news?
It’s good to know that a little stress keeps you awake. Or, more accurately, it keeps you alert, focused, sharp and on your game. But too much stress degrades your concentration and your performance and can make you sick if it goes on too long.
Studies have shown that too many stressful events in a certain time will overload your ability to cope and can cause physical illness as well as the more obvious turmoil and distress. And events we would welcome were found to be just as stressful as ones we would want to avoid. Yes, getting married and getting divorced get the same stress score!
Stress can weaken your immune system, increase heart rate, increase breathing rate, tighten muscles, and increase blood pressure, leading to many health risks such as stroke, heart attack, rapid aging, and mental health problems.
At Life Resolutions Doncaster we have experienced stress psychologists dedicated to helping you help yourself.
Many people think: What kind of therapy will I get with stress counselling? Our evidence-based approach to relaxation and stress-related problems can help you keep your cool when things get tough. We can coach you through ways to take charge of your breathing, recognise your stress triggers for what they are, and help you change your state of mind to think more positively and confidently.
