We’ve all been there at some stage in our lives, is your child suffering from the first day of school nerves, is your teenager suffering exam stress? Do you have a work presentation that’s keeping you awake? grief, uncertain relationships, money, interviews the list goes on. Stress affects our relationships with our family, friends and work colleagues but most importantly it is really uncomfortable to live with and you shouldn’t have to.
Stress is high on the list of most people we see in our clinic. Stress causes a cocktail of confusion in the body and it quickly becomes anxiety which is a deeper more constant form of stress, this then can become depression. Consider the word depression for a minute, flattened, squashed, deflated like stepping on a ball with no air in it. Life throws hard to handle things at all of us and it really can take its toll.
