Stress, Depression & Anxiety Management

With the death of a loved one, the birth of a child, a job promotion, or a new relationship, we experience stress as we readjust our lives. In so adjusting to different circumstances, stress will help or hinder us depending on how we react to it. As a positive influence, stress can help compel us to action; it can result in a new awareness and an exciting new perspective. As a negative influence, it can result in feelings of distrust, rejection, anger, and depression, which in turn can lead to health problems such as:

  • Headache
  • Rashes
  • High blood pressure
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Heart disease
  • Thyroid disease
  • Stroke

It is important to notice your distress and don't ignore it.

To combat stress, you should:

  • Prioritise your health
  • Get a good night's sleep
  • Practice deep breathing
  • Stay hydrated
  • Eat for wellbeing
  • Get moving
  • Adopt a more positive outlook
  • Master your time
  • Don't spend too much time online and on social media.
  • Learn to say no

In the first instance we would recommend that you arrange an appointment with one of our doctors to clinically assess your situation and to decide which form or treatment and/or advice is appropriate for your situation.

We can also refer you to the appropriate Counsellors and/or CBT Therapists who can offer further ongoing support and advice.
