Treatment for Stress in Scotland
If you are looking for treatment for Stress in Scotland, I can help you.
First of all, to help you understand if it is stress that you are experiencing, here is some helpful information that will guide you. Below that I have outlined some of the treatment options that I can offer you.
What is Stress?
Stress is simply a term to describe our reaction to situations or events where we feel out of control, threatened, or under pressure. It is something that we all experience to varying degrees throughout our lives, and is a normal part of ‘being human’. Sometimes, these situations become so severe that they exceed our ability to cope with them.
There are 2 commonly accepted ‘types’ of stress: Acute Stress, where a sudden or severe event occurs (such as a bereavement) that is too much for us to deal with; or Chronic Stress, where there is a steady build up of stressful events over a period of time (such as workplace abuse) that can ebb and flow in severity depending on circumstances.
Stress can leave you feeling irritable, angry, anxious or afraid. You may feel disinterested in life, unable to enjoy yourself, or lose your sense of humour. Physically, you may feel fatigued, headachy, constipated, diarrhoeal, or sick. It’s also possible that you could feel chest and muscle pains, have difficulty in breathing or experience changes in your menstrual cycle.

Treatment for Stress
If you’re looking for treatment for Stress in Scotland, it is crucial to realise that no single treatment fits all. The treatment that will be best for you is one that will be based upon a detailed understanding of what stresses you are experiencing, the lifestyle choices that you have made (or are seeking), and how your mind links with your body to generate the symptoms you suffer from. The first stage of any treatment is working with you to understand these vital factors.
It is, of course, very likely that a combination of treatment protocols will suit your unique circumstances rather than simply adopting one strategy. The key to my approach is to develop a deep understanding of your personal needs and circumstances and to adapt the treatment approach as your own needs change through the treatment process.
Here are three examples of treatment for stress that I offer:
Coaching as a Treatment for Stress in Scotland
A central belief underpinning coaching is that we possess inner wisdom and have all answers within us. The coach is there to help you access them, using various techniques such as NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), talking therapies, journaling, and mindfulness meditation.
Coaching is beneficial because it provides clarity whenever you feel confused about your issue, are stuck in a pattern, struggle to make a change, or see no direction or hope. It will help you get motivated, raise your self-awareness, understand and change your thinking patterns, perceptions, and behaviours and learn new skills.
Cognitive-Emotional Therapies as a Treatment for Stress in Scotland
Voicing what happens in your mind and how it makes you feel and behave will help you make sense of your troubles and their source and notice unhelpful patterns. Understanding all this, combined with therapeutic techniques, can help you make positive changes, take greater control of your life and improve your awareness and confidence.
Cognitive-Emotional therapies can help with difficult life events such as loss, relationship problems, painful past events, destructive feelings such as anger, low self-esteem or shame, mental health problems, and long-term physical health ailments.
Alternative Medicine as a Treatment for Stress in Scotland
My range includes NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), EFT (emotional freedom technique, or meridian tapping), vibrational medicine, aromatherapy (in the form of essences), mindfulness meditation, traditional Chinese medicine, radionics, dowsing for health, energy healing, and numerology.
