Stress Management Counselling Gold Coast

Stress management can be very difficult, particularly when you are juggling numerous hats and responsibilities, such as work, family commitments, financial pressures and the other responsibilities you have in your life. It can feel like a pressure cooker when you are constantly chasing your tail, feeling like you are about to explode.

Whilst some stress in life is normal, living with chronic stress can affect your emotions and make you feel like you are spinning out of control. The emotional strain of constant high levels of stress can lead to mental and physical health illnesses and put your overall wellbeing at risk.  Left unchecked, stress can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity. Recognising your triggers and personal stress symptoms can help you manage your health and relieve the pressure.

Signs & symptoms of stress may include:

  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain and tension
  • Chest pain
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Sweating
  • Lack of energy and tiredness
  • Problems sleeping
  • Anxiety
  • Feeling sad or depressed
  • Undereating or Overeating
  • Irritability and outbursts of anger
  • Digestive issues
  • Misuse of substances e.g. alcohol or drugs
  • Withdrawal for normal activities
