Stress (16-02-17)

When someone experiences stress, their unique perspective or response to a situation could be helpful or harmful. According to The Oxford Dictionary, Stress is ‘a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances’.

Gradual, sudden, expected or unforeseen. No matter how change occurs, it is important to learn how to manage changes to the best of our ability. Doing so is essential for healthy adaptation.

If you believe events are negatively impacting on your enjoyment of life, counselling is one approach that may enable you to explore your stressors.  Subsequently, identifying ways to self help may lead to a greater sense of personal fulfillment.
