In the twenty-first century, we live in an ‘always on’ culture, where we are constantly connected, and work frequently impinges on our down time. Personal and family relationship issues, work pressure, sleep disturbances and financial pressure can put you under seemingly unrelenting stress.
Even if you are good at handling stressful situations, you may find yourself overcome by negative thinking, panic attacks and depression. Continual stress can give you physical problems, including digestive issues, muscle pain, loss of appetite, insomnia, lowered libido and an inability to concentrate and focus – which, could make you feel even more stressed. This can also have a major impact on your long-term psychological health.
Help is at hand – a course of psychotherapy can help you to develop coping strategies. You can improve your relationships with colleagues at work and family at home. Whether the situation has been caused by current issues or relates to past experiences, therapy can help you to put the tension and worry behind you, so you can lead a more productive and fulfilling life.
