The nature of our rapidly lived lives can often leave us feeling stressed. And yet Stress is a natural physical and mental reaction to life experiences. Everyone experiences stress from time to time. Anything from everyday responsibilities like work and family to serious life events such as a new diagnosis or death of a loved one can trigger stress. Prolonged feelings of stress can endanger our health and diminish our lives and yet, at Therapy Institute we believe that, for most a therapeutic model that is designed to understand how stress is functioning and being maintained can radically help ameliorate its affects.
At Therapy Institute we understand that, with the right unique therapeutic model, stress is something that can be managed. Richard Hogan was recently quoted in an academic journal on his progressive ideas on stress; ‘we should not think of stress as something that must be beaten or avoided but rather as something that will arise and will dissipate, through reframing conversations it can actually be channelled and its presence can be positive.’
