Sometimes people who are stressed just need someone to listen, 'a problem shared is a problem halved'. They might be afraid of being judged or upsetting people close to them by revealing how they really feel.
All of the therapies I offer may help to relieve symptoms of stress, promote relaxation and a sense of wellbeing. It is amazing just how much difference taking some time out for yourself can make.
You will find prices for basic treatments on my website, but I believe each person's journey to find balance and wellbeing in their life is as individual as they are, therefore all treatments can be adapted to suit your specific needs. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
Stress is often accepted as a part of daily living. The heart pounding and legs feel weak, as if you are about to collapse, feeling confused, your head is fuzzy, and you can’t think straight.
Common signs of stress include indigestion, loss of concentration, problems sleeping, increased irritability, drinking/eating/smoking more, chewing or biting nails and increased sensitivity to criticism.
Stress-related complaints include depression, anxiety, back and neck pain, lowered immunity, headaches, migraines, asthma, high blood pressure, heart attacks and stroke. However, some people often don't see the connection between their physical condition and stress, or say that they don’t feel stressed.
Until more recently back pain, was the main stress-related cause for time off work. Today, mental and behavioural disorders, including depression and anxiety, have overtaken back pain as the main cause of illness.
In 2016/17 526,000 workers were suffering from work-related stress, depression or anxiety (new or long-standing).
12.5 million working days lost due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety in 2016/17.
