What is stress?
Physically, when we feel stressed we find it difficult, if not impossible to relax. Sleep eludes us despite feeling exhausted - either we can't get to sleep or we wake up in the middle of the night feeling 'wired'. We might get headaches, stomach churning - eating problems (too much food or not enough), our heart may pound, our breathing gets quicker and we sweat more. We turn things over and over in our head - what might happen or go wrong - or we can't stop thinking about something that has already happened and didn't go exactly to plan or how we envisaged it. We feel as though something terrible is going to happen - we might get images of some awful disaster. We can often be our own worse critic and that 'inner critic' can be screaming at you. This, unfortunately, is all too common but it CAN be changed.
A little bit of stress can be useful - it can give us the edge for an event or situation but chronic stress is really not good for us. It depletes our energy and our immune system. It can impact on relationships, our job and certainly on our levels of happiness. It can also impact on our physical health - stress releases a chemical cocktail in our bodies that can make us sick - 'dis-ease'.
It is much easier said than done to turn the worrying off. The more
you tell yourself there is nothing to worry about, the more stressed you
feel. It is yet another thing to worry about! The good news is, this is just a habit and all habits CAN be changed! I can help you cement in some new, more helpful habits, more useful thought patterns and reaction-habits
A session will end with a guided relaxation exercise that can be recorded for you to use later when you wish.
An initial session costs $110 and this can last 60-90 mins. Follow up sessions of one hour are $110 or you can pre-book 5 sessions (one 90 min and 4 of one hour) for $500, payment in advance.
