Stress is a common psychological pain that refers to pressure and strain. If someone describes themselves as being stressed, they are likely feeling pressure from work, a relationship, or something outside of their control, like a natural disaster. Excessive stress levels can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, so it is important to regulate stress. Psychological symptoms of stress include anxiety, the potential development of disorders, and depression. If someone has a pre-existing condition, then stress can act as a trigger to it becoming present.
To treat stress, many people use one of three methods, but the best way is often a combination of the most positive habits. Someone who is stressed may opt to medicate their symptoms through prescribed drugs or substances such as alcohol. Exercise and a better lifestyle can also improve an individual's stress levels. Psychological interventions like talking therapies and mindfulness are some of the healthiest ways to manage stress.
Stress Management Glasgow
When you are under pressure, it can feel like the odds are stacked against you. In these moments, it may seem that you cannot get a break to yourself. Stress can change how your life looks and feels, and at Psychology Scotland, we understand how difficult it can be in these times to remain positive. We have prioritised creating a friendly environment so you can approach our services without hassle. Our centre is inclusive and accepts people from all walks of life. Whether you are new to therapy or have existing experience with psychological counselling, you can build a network with us with your needs in mind.
Our professional therapists use proven methods that are supported by strong empirical evidence. After an initial assessment, you will be enrolled in a programme that matches your requirements. Once you progress through therapy, you will begin developing skills to help you manage psychological issues like stress. One of our aims is to provide our patients with the tools to maintain a positive state of mental well-being long after they have left the therapeutic process. Therapy will help you control your stress, meaning you can invest more energy into yourself and your loved ones.
If you have suffered from prolonged stress, then it is time to move toward therapy. Interventions like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) will allow you to take an action-based approach to any stress you suffer. With these forms of talking therapies, you can strategise ways to manage your emotions better and understand what is outside of your control. Other therapies like mindfulness can help you sustain a state of presence. Whichever programme is chosen, you can be assured that Psychology Scotland will work with you through your difficulties. The first step toward therapy is often the hardest, and we want to make this as easy as possible. We are ready to build a brighter future with you.
