'And here you are living despite it all.'
Edmonton Stress Management Psychologist
Stress management refers to the wide spectrum of techniques and psychotherapies aimed at controlling a person’s levels of stress, especially chronic stress, usually for the purpose of improving everyday functioning. It’s important for a person to learn how to manage and deal with stress, especially in today’s go-go world. Everyone deals with stressful situations at some point and it can wreak havoc on your mental and physical well-being. Besides personal problems, extreme stress also causes different physiological and psychological disorders in the body such as anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, withdrawal symptoms, nausea, phobias, blood pressure, heart impairments, and many more.
