Stress reduction

Stress is an everyday fact of life. You can't avoid it because it is an inevitable aspect of the human experience. As a positive influence, stress can motivate us to get things done and help us meet the demands of home, family, and work life. As a negative influence, stress becomes a problem when we feel overwhelmed and it goes on for a long time. It can affect our mood, our behaviour, our body, and our relationships. Prolonged stress can turn into chronic stress and have a harmful effect on our emotional and physical wellbeing. It can even lead to serious health problems. With knowledge of a range of stress management techniques and effective relaxation techniques, you can develop a personalised approach to managing stress in your hectic life and feel better now.

 

Does it work?

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy is recommended by The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) for the treatment of depression relapse. Mental Health Organisations such as MIND and the Mental Health Foundation also recognise the many benefits that Mindfulness may bring.

 

I am a member of Mindfulness Now and can teach Mindfulness (MBSR or MBCT) in groups or as an individual.

Mindfulness is helpful in treating symptoms of tension and stress like insomnia, worry, headaches, depression, high blood pressure, indigestion, and road rage.
