Stress Therapy Ottawa

It is important to look at the effect or impact that stress and anxiety has on your work and home life. A professional therapist – psychologist, psychiatrist, social worker or counselor can assist in the stress management process. Being able to learn appropriate strategies to handle the various stressors is an important function of the role of the professional. Because you are feeling stressed and vulnerable, the professional can offer different perspectives on the situation and work with you to learn how to better cope with the stressors.

Sometimes a therapist will tell you that your feelings, thoughts, and behaviour are quite normal. This can be reassuring to you. This is particularly important if you have sometimes reflected that you thought you were “going crazy”. The therapist will work with you to develop a stress treatment plan and counselling to overcome stress.

Managing Stress at Work and at Home

In today’s ever-changing pace of technology, downsizing in the workplace, and economic instability, individuals can easily feel overwhelmed by life’s challenges. Everyday living involves anxiety and stress management at home, at work, even at play. Missing the tennis ball and having a bad golf game can be stressful for some individuals. How we deal with stress can make a difference to our mood, out thoughts and our behaviour toward ourselves and others.

Stress affects everyone…children and adults. This chapter examines symptoms of stress, negative and positive coping strategies and positive strategies for stress and anxiety at work and at home. The chapter focuses on our ability to handle life’s daily stresses, which can have an impact on our psychological and physiological health.
