Very many people could benefit from simply giving more consideration to stress, how it works in and on them and how they can adopt habits which minimise harmful effects of excessive stress and make creative and positive use of it. A significant proportion have more severe problems with stress that need to be addressed more urgently in one-to-one work with a therapist.
Stress symptoms range from excessive tiredness, lack of energy, loss of appetite, sleeping problems, high blood pressure, physical symptoms of various kinds including muscle cramps, cold sweats and tingling in fingers and toes to uncontrolled weeping, full blown panic attacks and depression.
Whilst few people experience all of these symptoms, it is common for one or more of them to be present when stress is beginning to present serious challenges. Where severe and alarming physical symptoms accompany stress, we advise taking medical advice. However, many stress symptoms can very quickly be relieved through the intelligent approaches used at the centre without the use of drugs and with no side effects.
