We are in Shepshed, just off the A6 or Junction 23 of the M1,
halfway between Loughborough and Leicester!
Both in our personal lives, and also in our workplace, we frequently encounter stress and stressful situations. Stress can be a positive force; we all need a certain amount of stress in order to function and be well. Often, though, its effects can be experienced as wholly negative.
The symptoms of stress itself can be extremely frightening too. We find we can't think or concentrate. We can find ourselves with a constantly unsettled tummy, digestive problems and no appetite. We start to notice pain, often headaches, neck and muscle pain from holding ourselves tense. Sometimes we start to have palpitations or difficulty regulating our breathing. Panic starts to crash over us in waves and we can be shocked to experience panic attacks. Our sleep often becomes disturbed and unsatisfying, and suddenly we're in a cycle we don't know how on earth to stop.
We find ourselves saying, 'How did it get to this?' or 'This isn't who I am. Sometimes we feel we don't know or recognise ourselves anymore. Nothing feels right but we don't know how to begin to express just how confused and frightened we feel. Those around us don't know how to help or what to say, and can sometimes back away or become frustrated because we can seemunreachable.
We know something's got to change, but we're at a loss to know where to begin.
Stress has many causes, and can present itself in many different ways. However, always at the heart of stress is a message that says something needs to change.
Whatever the particular symptoms, and however it happens to present itself, you're receiving important signals that something in your life is not okay. That might be something current, or it might be something that happened in the past that seems to be coming up to the surface right now. Or it might be worries about the future, or a decision or major life change that's on our mind and will give us no peace. Being unhappy or dissatisfied with our lives, or some particular aspect of it, is another common cause of stress, as is fear of initiating change. Whichever way we look at things, we feel stuck and helpless.
~ STRESSWORKS ~offers a practical alternative. We specialise in helping you to understand and manage the complex reactions we all suffer in response to, or in relation to, such disabling and quite overwhelming experiences as:
Lack of Confidence
Obsessive or compulsive behaviour
Painful childhood memories or trauma
Feeling overwhelmed by others
Crisis or life crises
We work with you to help you break the circle.
~ STRESSWORKS ~ offers counselling and psychotherapy, working gently to help individuals understand what is underneath and behind their current difficulties, so that they can feel in control, empowered, and able to make the most of their potential.
We also provide Life Skills coaching, supporting you to discover and practise new ways of being, and new skills and techniques, which will enable you to live a fuller and more effective life, both at work and personally, and to enjoy fuller and more effective relationships.
~ STRESSWORKS ~ takes seriously the findings and recommendations of the latest cutting edge research into well-being and the balance between the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needed for optimum health. We therefore offer a range of holistic options for those who feel this would suit them better.
