Stress management counselling helps Geelong cope through the busy New Year period

December 18 2016

With Christmas and New Year just days away, people are preparing for family get-togethers, social celebrations and happy times.

But between co-ordinating Christmas gatherings with family and friends, finishing up work, shopping, cooking, hosting and cleaning, it’s no surprise that the pressure can be too much. And the festive feelings can soon be smothered by a blanket of stress.

With a background in neuroscience, I can help you cope with stress and find enjoyment again. Through my stress management counselling Geelong people will learn to recognise stress cues, understand the triggers and behaviours that set stress levels soaring and use strategies from neuroscience’s current research to effectively get their stress under control.

Perhaps the thought of organising a Christmas lunch for 40 is filling you with dread, with the food preparation and family tensions. Or you’re under the pump to wrap up projects at work and just don’t think there are enough hours in the day to complete your tasks. Maybe you’re struggling financially, with the burden of Christmas shopping for gifts and food, and don’t want to let your family down. You’re not sleeping well, you’re stomach is constantly churning, you’re irritable, you’re tense, grinding your teeth and it’s all becoming too much to handle.

Take action and turn to a professional psychologist for assistance this Christmas and beyond. Give yourself the gift of stress management counselling in Geelong to help you effectively manage the festive weeks with quality strategies, an improved mindset and positive self-talk.

We all experience stress in our lives. Sometimes it’s helpful, kicking us along to get things done in a hurry and meet challenges. But when it reaches a chronic level, it’s bad for our mental and physical health and can negatively impact our relationships, our work, our family life and our future.

So don’t let stress rob you of happiness this festive season. Seek help and get effective strategies in place so you can reclaim your life and march into the New Year in a positive manner.
