Counseling for stress management and talking to a therapist about stressors and how to cope with them can offer long-term solutions for dealing with stressors that pop up in the present and future.
Counseling can help tackle stress that occurs as a result of live events (loss, divorce, life-altering diagnoses, etc.), as well as everyday stressors surrounding family, work, or self-care.
What types of therapy and techniques can relieve stress?
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) --- helps alter negative thought patterns that can arise due to stress; involves reframing thoughts and behaviors to find a more positive solution.
- Mindfulness --- instructing individuals to take stock of their current feelings, emotions, and bodily sensations to become more present can shift the focus from stressors to other ideas and feelings.
- It is also possible for stress to arise as a symptom of other mental health conditions like anxiety. It is important to keep in mind that stress does not operate as a singularity and often stems from other conditions that can be addressed in therapy.
