Stress (16-02-17)

When someone feels stressed, 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’. Considering that changes in our life can be gradual, sudden, expected or unforeseen; learning how to manage stress is essential for healthy adaptation. If you believe stress is negatively impacting on your enjoyment of life, counselling is one approach that may enable you to explore your stressors, identify ways to self help and achieve a greater sense of fulfillment.
