Find out more about how we can help you overcome your stress.


What is stress?
Stress can cloud your judgement and prevent you from seeing things clearly.
We all know what it’s like to feel stressed, but it’s not easy to pin down exactly what stress means. When we say things like “this is stressful” or “I’m stressed”, we might be talking about:
  • Situations or events that put pressure on us – for example, times where we have lots to do and think about, or don’t have much control over what happens.
  • Our reaction to being placed under pressure – the feelings we get when we have demands placed on us that we find difficult to cope with.
How do I know if I'm stressed?
We all experience stress, but we all react to each stress differently. Signs and symptoms differ from person to person. Some react to stress behaviorally, while others react emotionally or physically. Some signs include the following:
  • Depression or anxiety.
  • Anger, irritability, or restlessness.
  • Feeling overwhelmed, unmotivated, or unfocused.
  • Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much.
  • Racing thoughts or constant worry.
  • Problems with your memory or concentration.
  • Making bad decisions
How can I prevent or avoid stress?
Avoid or at least reduce your consumption of nicotine and any drinks that contain alcohol and caffeine. Nicotine and caffeine are stimulants which means they will increase your stress levels rather than reducing it. It is important to know that alcohol is a depressant when drunk in large quantities, and acts as a stimulant in smaller quantities. With this in mind if you decide to drink high quantities of alcohol to avoid stress it is not going to help you.
When you feel stressed and tense, go for a brisk walk in fresh air.  Try to incorporate some physical activity into your daily routine on a regular basis, either before or after work, or at lunchtime.  Regular physical activity will also improve the quality of your sleep.
A lack of sleep is a significant cause of stress. Unfortunately though, stress also interrupts our sleep as thoughts keep whirling through our heads, stopping us from relaxing enough to fall asleep. You should also aim to go to bed at roughly the same time each day so that your mind and body get used to a predictable bedtime routine.
Talking things through with a trained professional can help you find solutions to your stress and put your problems into perspective.
Is all stress bad?

No, not all stress is necessarily bad for you. Stress can motivate people to prepare or perform, like when they need to take a test or interview for a new job. Stress can be life-saving in response to danger as your body prepares to face a threat or flee to safety. However, if you feel as though the feeling of being stressed is taking over your life, this is not healthy and you should seek help on how to manage your stress more effectively.

Do I need help with my stress?
This depends largely on how well you manage your stress. Short-term professionally-managed therapies can work well. But there can be health risks if stress is not successfully reduced in the long term. Your aim should be to achieve and maintain an equilibrium that feels comfortable for you. If you feel you cannot achieve this alone, you should look to seek help from a trained professional.
How long should I use your services?

This really depends on the severity of your mental health. However, we recommend our clients meet with their therapist for a minimum of six sessions in order to uncover some of the valuable lessons and teachings that you can begin to use in your day to day life that will help you to deal with your mental health for the rest of your life.

Can I choose my own therapist?
Of course! You get to choose your therapist at the time of booking, and if you decide that you would like to change at any point, you can simply switch to a new therapist whenever you choose.
Does online therapy really work?

Absolutely! There are a wide selection of studies that prove online therapy is just as effective, if not more effective, than traditional face-to-face therapy. Our therapy provides you with the information, tools and guidance that you need to overcome your problems, with the help of your therapist.

How do I speak to my therapist?

You will communicate with your therapist via a secure, encrypted, online video call. The software we use is called Zoom which is really simple and easy to use. If at any point you would like to speak to somebody, you can contact us through our website and we’ll be on hand ASAP.

Is my information secured & confidential?

Yes! All of the information you provide is saved anonymously on our secure system that has been approved by the National Care Guidelines. Only you and your therapist will know what has been discussed. If you would like any information to be deleted or kept “off-record” simply let your therapist know and they’ll ensure everything is deleted straight away.
