Stress is almost unavoidable these days. It is built into everything we do – the speed of work and home life, the pressures on relationships, and the seeming impossibility of taking sufficient time out to relax and unwind.
A moderate level of stress can be motivating and even energising, but too much stress, too continually, can be detrimental to the body and mind.
We lose attention and focus, can’t sleep, become less productive, and hence take on more stress as the vicious circle tightens.
Stress counselling aims to help you talk through your main pressures to find more manageable responses to them.
Importantly it also helps you reconnect with your values and priorities, and formulate easy step goals, so that you can begin to spend your energy on the things that are most important in your life.
Our team at Open Sky Psychology are conveniently located to provide stress counselling for people in Denistone, Meadowbank, Gladesville, Hunters Hill, Putney, North Ryde, East Ryde and also West Ryde, as well as Eastwood and Lane Cove.
We will work with you to identify the main stressors you are experiencing, and target them with appropriate strategies.
