Stress & resilience

stress relief methods
& stress management


Stress affects our bodies and our minds. It is a disruptive condition occurring in response to adverse external influences and capable of affecting physical health, usually characterized by increased heart rate, a rise in blood pressure, muscular tension, irritability, and depression.

The key here is: occuring in response to...: Stress is a result of something else.

There are many effective ways to reduce the effects of stress: meditation, yoga, breathing... But, to find a really effective stress management technique for you, it helps to understand what causes your stress.

I work with you to better understand how to deal with what you find stressful. I coach you to develop your own resources. What you learn in the process stays with you. You build up your own personal strengths. So the change you achieve is lasting.

It helps to have a healthy respect for the difficulty of this task... but to not let this intimidate us. Together, we go right into the eye of the storm: we explore what happens during stressful moments.

I help you go through a "slow motion replay" of these difficult moments.

We explore together what happens, in a gentle, curious and accepting way. This helps you become more aware of what is happening, and how to fight it.

Change doesn't happen instantly. Supportive coaching helps you overcome the ups and downs that are a normal part of the process of overcoming stress.

As you stick with it, this process brings about changes. And, as you act differently, you experience yourself as a different person.
