We naturally feel a certain amount of stress when we come face to face with challenges in life. When we are feeling self-confident and in control, we can manage our way through stress triggering situations, without too much discomfort.
However, in certain situations, for example, under conditions of prolonged stress or following a traumatic incident, stress levels can intensify. This is because, physiological and psychological stress symptoms become more severe. Stress symptoms, such as, excessive worry, heart racing, churning stomach, etc. can begin to interfere with your overall well-being and start to make specific or everyday life situations difficult to cope with.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can provide you with a new perspective on your situation, enabling you to regain control, reduce the intense physiological and emotional symptoms and adopt effective strategies that will help you deal with stressful situations with more confidence and ease.
