More about Stress Therapy & Treatment with Apex Practice

While most people are able to tolerate moderate levels of stress from time to time, it is perfectly understandable that in some cases, when you are constantly exposed to high levels of stress, it can be an issue which you may need help with on a professional level.

Stress management through therapy and counselling can work to identify where the root cause of your stress is coming from, why you are struggling to release the stress and tension and what stress-reduction techniques will work best for you.

Experiencing some levels of stress from time to time is not always a negative and in some cases can prove to be a motivating factor. It can drive you to achieve certain things and stimulate your mind to think more creatively and boost your energy and performance for particular tasks at hand. However it can generate the opposite response from you if the build-up is too much to handle.

What Are The Symptoms Of Stress?

The physical signs of stress can include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Migraines
  • Breathlessness
  • Muscle tension and pain
  • Impotence (erectile dysfunction)
  • Heart burn

Other signs include:

  • Low mood and self-esteem
  • Panic attacks
  • Feeling tired due to insomnia
  • Being irritable with outbursts of anger and rage
  • Low levels of productivity
  • Increased drug and alcohol consumption

The cause of stress is commonly viewed as stemming from pressures at work, however our Clinical therapists and counsellors are aware that there can be multiple reasons why you’re feeling constant stress. Either from an external or internal source such as feeling lonely or withdrawn, going through an illness or physical problem, relationship or family problems, abuse of alcohol or drugs as well as bereavement or loss.

Going through high levels of stress on a regular basis can be overcome with the support of our team who use a combination of counselling and psychotherapy techniques catered to your specific case.
