Stress Management

Stress is the nonspecific response of the body to any demand (Selye, 1956). In fact, stress is a survival mechanism. It is not necessarily bad but rather depends on the perception and reaction to what causes stress, a stressor. Usually, people adapt to stress fairly well, unless it causes a significant disruption of their balance. It can happen if the level of stress is repeatedly or continuously high, so that the person is no more able to handle it. This allostatic level differs individually. Psychological distress in response to critical incidents is considered to be psychological crisis (Everly & Mitchell, 2008). 

 

I would be happy to help you with your stress related issues. I approach the issue of stress holistically. My work is based on profound academic research and involves continuous training and insights from diverse areas, i.e. CISM (Critical Incident Stress Management), Selye's research on stress, relaxation techniques, stress questionnaires, trauma informed interventions, expressive arts therapy, Fogel's research on embodiment, to name a few. I am a member of the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF) and CISM Certified.
