STRESS: what it is and how we can help
Certain amount of stress and pressure can motivate people and help them achieve their goals. However, you may find that too much stress can have real, negative impact on your emotional wellbeing as well physical health. It is important to recognise that stress can be effectively managed within yourself regardless of what life throws at you. At Fernwood, we can offer a personalised plan with mechanisms to help you cope and thrive.
Whether it is related to work worries, financial strain, relationships or other circumstances, you might experience some of the following symptoms:
While stress is not considered a clinical condition, it has a very real health impact. We offer talking therapies to help identify stress triggers and develop appropriate coping strategies.
For example, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy has been shown to be very effective in tackling stress. It helps gain a sense of perspective and see the connection between a downward mood spiral and the high standards that we impose on ourselves at home and at work.
We will also discuss with you other lifestyle factors, such as diet and exercise.
The length of treatment varies depending on the individual circumstances.
