Stress
…struggling to Cope?

At times, we can get caught up in unhealthy behaviours in order to cope that fuel our stress and anxiety. Sometimes in difficult situations at home or work maybe be ongoing and we find ourselves stuck in a downward spiral without the support to draw on and help us through.

Sometimes, a little stress can be helpful, to protect and warn us, to help you to escape a dangerous situation or to encourage us toward change and growth. Stress is the body’s reaction to a challenge, something that is happening now and is triggered by a specific situation. A stress response is actually how the body reacts to any kind of pressure or even threat, flooding the nervous system with adrenalin and cortisol to alert the body so it’s ready to act, in ‘flight’ or ‘fight’ mode.

Private Counselling Nottingham can be helpful in preventing greater problems developing. Supporting you in learning how to better manage the stress in your life with helpful tips, simply learning a few tools to be better organised, improve your communication, or become more forgiving. Sometimes it maybe important to unravel the deeper less conscious motivations to alleviate the levels of stress.

Stressful situations and the demands of life’s responsibilities can seem difficult and overwhelming at times. Often people describe themselves as ‘stressed’ when they feel worried or overloaded, fearful or anxious, with everyday symptoms that include not being able to relax, or sleep, suffering headaches or upset stomach and easily losing their temper. Too much stress, or mismanaged stress can cause serious health conditions: cancer, strokes, diabetes, and heart disease. Overtime, the roots can become much deeper, getting stuck in vicious cycles, and destructive behaviours.

Wedding Stress


With the best intentions, planning your wedding can
take over your life. Trying to please everyone and keep the status quo can be an immense responsibility, and overwhelming, entering an arena of perfection, originality, planning, messages, emails, family traditions, expectations, speeches, accommodating and compromise for the ‘perfect day’ to cherish forever.

Private Counselling Nottingham can be enormously helpful to find strategies and a calm approach towards making your wedding a ‘joyous’ day to remember.

 I have tried numerous therapies, most of them without success. Life gets really easy when you give yourself permission to be yourself. Highly recommended.
