If you feel at times that life is hopeless or empty and you have nowhere to turn for answers, maybe it's time to talk to a local therapist or counsellor at O'Brien Counselling.
Stress is usually defined as a bodily response to the demands on our everyday lives. There are emotional and mental aspects of stress that we need to consider. Mental health professionals often help people by reducing the stress in a patients lives.
Certain situations in our lives can cause pressure to build up. This is called stress, or possibly known as life stressors. Usually stress counsellors think of stressors as being a negative affect on our lives such as a rocky relationship, a tough time with a boss at work, or dealing with a certain family member.
Anything that puts a high demand on our mental state is considered stress. Stress and depression counsellors can help people manage stress by working through other mental health issues that have developed over time to help them cope with high levels of stress.
Stress is part of our everyday lives! If you have trouble dealing with stress it is always good to talk with a friend or family member about it. If it is something that you find very personal and you don't want to talk with a brother or sister or parent about, then there is always the option to talk with a professional counsellor.
Depression and stress is very related. It can lead to feelings of helplessness and can impair your everyday lifestyle, work, and even sleep. Why wait until you're really suffering with depression or stress in general? You can really benefit from the help of a professional life counsellor. What do you have to lose?
