Help to manage stress in York

"The truth is that stress doesn't come from your boss, your kids, your spouse, traffic jams, health challenges, or other circumstances. It comes from your thoughts about your circumstances."

Andrew Bernstein, author

When you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed it is often hard to imagine that there's a way out which doesn't involve just running away and setting up camp on a far-off beach!

But - I have worked with lots of people who have felt this way, and together we have found out what works for them to manage stress and make life much, much better.

Symptoms of stress

If you are stressed or overwhelmed, you may be experiencing some of the following:

  • Being easily frustrated, short-tempered or over-reacting
  • Feeling overwhelmed by how much you have to do or by the size of the challenges you face
  • Feeling it is all down to you and you have too many responsibilities, but no option other than to keep going
  • Juggling work and family with no time for you
  • Needing to be in control
  • Procrastinating because you have so much to do you don’t know where to start
  • Feeling guilty because you can’t cope and you should be able to
  • Not being able to switch off from work worries – or indeed from any worry
  • Suffering physical symptoms of stress such as aches, pains and IBS
  • Your mind constantly active and distracted
  • Not being able to get to sleep, or waking up in the early hours
  • Often becoming low, sad and tearful
  • Not trusting yourself, your capabilities and your own judgements
  • Not trusting the motives of others
  • Worrying about what other people think
  • Feeling trapped and wanting to escape (leaving it all behind and living on a desert island perhaps)
  • Just wanting a happy life again, but not knowing how this could be possible
