Most of us have experienced stress. In small doses it can have a positive effect by motivating you to do your best. But what happens when the pressure gets too much? Your usual coping strategies no longer work and your health begins to suffer?
Work related stress has become very prevalent. Coping with the demands of tight deadlines, feeling unskilled to take on additional roles all contribute to stress and can affect our day to day life.
Long term stress contributes to many problems such as anxious thoughts, mood swings, aches and pains. Also weariness and exhaustion and memory problems. There can be feelings of isolation, insomnia, digestive upsets and much more.
We all need to find ways to unwind and balance our life. Managing stress is about taking control of your thoughts and emotions. Helping you to make time for rest and relaxation.
There are many ways of assisting you to do this. We specialise in combining energy therapies to help you to relax, rebalance and re-energise. By working with you and offering advice and coping strategies for you to continue the good work at home.
