Do you feel stressed, depressed, or anxious?

Stress

Do you feel under pressure or overwhelmed? You could be experiencing stress.

Symptoms of stress can include:

  • Sleeping issues
  • Focus and concentration issues
  • Irritability and indisposition
  • Anxiety
  • Binging, overeating or drink issues

We develop stress when put under psychological pressure; a healthy amount of pressure is key to adaptation, but too much pressure (heavy workload, trauma, divorce, financial difficulties, etc.) can test coping resources and create anxiety or psychosomatic illnesses.

How I can help

In working with stress related problems, I support the clients in understanding the specific situation, the cause for it, and then I help to develop skills and competences that help prevent the development of similar problematic situations.

Depression

Do you have feelings of hopelessness? You may be experiencing depression. 

Symptoms of depression can include:

  • Feelings of apathy, hopelessness or meaninglessness
  • Withdrawal from activities
  • Loss of interest for the outside world
  • Loss of interest in work, family
  • Low self-esteem
  • Feelings of sadness
  • Tiredness or low energy

In the modern world we are constantly exposed to high stress factors, through the complexity and business of our daily life.

How I can help

I provide professional help for learning coping strategies and to help develop ‘tools’ tailored to your personal needs, tools which take into consideration our own life path, individual experiences, abilities and innate qualities.

Anxiety

Do you have an excessive, uncontrollable worry about everyday things? You could be experiencing anxiety.

Symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder include:

  • Restlessness
  • Getting tired easily
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Irritability
  • Muscle tension
  • Sleep disturbance

Anxiety is caused by heightened awareness of potential threats in one’s own environment, as well as increased tendency toward taking action regarding such possible threats.

Panic Disorder

Panic disorder is characterized by recurrent panic attacks which occur unexpectedly. The person experiences intense fear and discomfort; these can be triggered by specific situations such as phobic conditions, or following a trauma, or can be spontaneous.

The most common symptoms of panic attacks include:

  • Palpitations, pounding heart
  • Sweating
  • Shaking
  • Sensation of shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Nausea or abdominal distress
  • Feeling dizzy, unsteady
  • Feeling of losing control or going crazy
  • Fear of dying
  • Chills or hot flashes
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder is characterized by excessive anxiety and worry.

How I can help

In treatment of anxiety (in all its forms) I mainly use a cognitive-therapeutic approach. Beginning with education, the client understands the principles and rationale of the situation. Then, together with the client, I develop a treatment plan which includes therapeutic strategies and ‘tools’ that help the client to self-manage particular situations.

A little step can help on the path to a brighter future...
