"Some people are so used to experiencing stress that they don't remember what life was like without it."- Andrew J. Bernstein
Stress in the modern world
Stress in the modern world is increasing and is now strongly linked to a lot of major illnesses, both mentally and physically. It can affect our sleep, appetite, mood, decision making, relationships and general health. It can also heighten anxiety and lead to depression, in some cases.
It is nearly impossible to reduce stress from our lives, however, learning and how to deal with it, being prepared for it and managing it, will improve both our mental and physical wellbeing.
With my stress management coaching, you will learn quick and effective ways to deal with day to day stresses, in the home, workplace or whatever environment you are in. I use a combination of techniques from Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, mindfulness, relaxation and meditation.
You will be taught how to be aware of these and be given techniques to prepare for when they arise, increasing your stress tolerance, such as:
- Learn how to control your heart rate with diaphragmatic breathing
- Become more relaxed with simple effective meditation
- Reframe how you currently perceive stressful situations
- Learn how to use stress in a positive and effective way that benefits your life.
There are no hard and fast rules to stress management as each person will have a completely different perception to life and its events. I work directly with you, helping you understand how you perceive events, become calmer in stressful situations and improve your overall quality of life.

What is Stress?
it is our perception of both the event and our ability to cope or overcome it that causes the problem. Everyone has their own “stressors”, these are what trigger our stress response. They can be unique to us or normal common everyday things. Sometimes they cannot be avoided.
Nowadays, stress has become a way of life, so much that a lot of people don’t even realise they are stressed until they hit breaking point.
