Stress / Anxiety

Our experts will design focussed based therapy sessions to help you manage your stress

Stress is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. When a person is stressed their heart pounds faster, muscles tighten, breath quickens and blood pressure rises. In small amounts, stress helps in performance but too much of stress is can be very unhealthy physically and mentally.

Anxiety is a constant feeling of worry and uncertainty. It causes distress that interferes with one’s daily life activities. The physical symptoms can include hot and cold flushes, sweaty hands and feet, nausea, heart pounding fast, restlessness and tightening of the chest. If not taken care of, a person suffering from constant anxiety can suffer anxiety attacks that can lead to anxiety disorders.
