Stress and feeling overwhelmed
Life can be very demanding, and a build-up of stress is a major reason that brings people to therapy. Stress can feel overwhelming, making it hard to focus and difficult to switch off. It may centre on a range of issues including problems at work, issues in romantic or family relationships, money worries and the overwhelm that can come from living a busy city life.
Stress can also lead to sleep issues, digestive problems, aches, tension and low energy levels, and some people may experience anxiety and panic attacks.
Our therapists can help you slow down and understand what is underpinning your feelings, and identify ways to manage stress and minimise the symptoms so you feel calmer and more able to cope with life’s demands.
