Stress & Anxiety

Situations that cause us to feel anxious or stressed are part of modern life. We all have to deal with these stress situations and for the most part we do so without any long-term emotional or physical symptoms. Stress is the body’s visceral response to demands made upon it and the response tends to be the same regardless of the nature of the cause of the stress. The main feature of stress is emotional arousal. As the nervous stimulus caused by the stress event decreases or disappears so does the response and the anxiety recedes.

However, when the stress situation continues for a longer period, or we suffer several stress events in a short period of time, so the nervous stimulus, ‘the stress’ causes and produces both physical and mental symptoms. They may result in general nervousness, irrational preoccupation with problems, panic attacks, irrational fears, sleep disorders, disorders of the digestive system, tension headaches, aches in muscles and limbs, lower resistance to illness, high blood pressure, skin problems, eczema, psoriasis, nervous astma, the list is endless.
The amount of session you would require depends on the individual, but we would review at each stage of your symptoms. You will be provided with a recording for you to listen to at home to continue to re enforce your therapy.
