Stress Management Counseling

By Psychologist and Counselor Shivani Misri Sadhoo

What is Stress?

The constant feeling of emotional or physical tension is considered as stress. It can happen due to any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, and nervous. Stress our body's reaction to a barrier, challenge or demand. In short bursts, stress could be positive, like when it helps you avoid a lurking danger or meet any deadline.

Do you often have a hard time starting or completing tasks? Are your ideas quite bigger than your motivation to execute them? Are getting it extremely difficult to get along with your spouse or family? Do you often end up quarreling or arguing with your spouse? Do your inspirations usually lead you on a path to nowhere? These are often some of the signs that you might be struggling with the stress that is impacting both your personal and professional life.

At Saarthi Counselling Services, Psychologist Shivani Misri Sadhoo uses a combination of therapy and coaching to assist you to move forward in your life. Counselor Shivani’s therapy helps you break down tasks into manageable steps. By using everyday planners, simple technology, and selective attention methods, you can make the best utilization of your time, stay on work, and meet your targeted deadlines. Counselor Shivani will help restructure your work environment so you can break through barriers, have lesser distractions, and boost up your confidence and motivation. At Saarthi Counselling, Psychologist Shivani will help you identify your strengths by sharpening in on your past successes. In simpler words, you do not dwell on whatever weaknesses have stopped you from moving forward. Counselor Shivani encourages you to work with, not against, the grain.

During the process, Counselor Shivani will teach you how to better manage your physical symptoms of anxiety and stress through a wide range of relaxation techniques. Abdominal breathing, guided imagery, mindfulness meditation, and progressive muscle relaxation are a few of the therapeutic tools we use to assist you in stress and time management.

What is Work Stress?

Several people find their jobs to be rewarding, but when your work makes an undue amount of stress, it can affect many aspects of your life. Work stress can lead you to burnout, depression, and health complications, but with the therapeutical services of compassionate and experienced counselor Shivani Misri Sadhoo at Saarthi Counselling Services can assist you to manage your work stress so it would not harm your physical or mental health and personal relationships. Most working individuals at some point in their professional life experience work-related stress because of deadlines, performance expectations, and relationships with bosses and co-workers. But workplace stress that creates ongoing worry or anxiety lasting for a few weeks or months can have a negative effect on your emotional and physical health, and cause few problems in your personal life.

If you feel being unfairly treated at your job, overburdened and stressed with responsibilities, or concerned about your job security, it can develop a stress response in your body. That leads to higher levels of cortisol and other hormones, and a spike in blood pressure. And work stress mostly interferes with your ability to eat healthily and exercise daily.

All of this can eventually lead to more hazardous health complications.

When Should You Seek Counseling or Help for the Work Stress?

If work-related stress makes you overwhelming your life, it is a wise idea to schedule an evaluation with one of the highly skilled professionals in Delhi at Saarthi Counselling Services. You must also consider mental health treatment if your work stress shows any of the following physical symptoms:

  • Irritability and mood swings
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Disturbed Sleep
  • Frequent Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Weight Fluctuations

Work stress can often lead you to a condition known as burnout. Burnout is characterized by emotional and physical exhaustion added with an increasingly negative attitude towards life and regarding yourself and others.

Burnout is linked with an increased risk of depression. Both stress and depression could contribute to serious health conditions, such as high cholesterol, hypertension, heart disease, and an increased probability of a heart attack.

How Work Stress is Treated?

Work stress can actually have devastating and long-lasting effects, but it can be successfully cured by a qualified professional. When managing job-related stress, your therapist at Saarthi Counselling Services draws on several mental health techniques to address your personal needs. Your individual treatment plan could include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Psychotherapy (Talk therapy)
  • Group therapy
  • Neurofeedback (electroencephalographic/EEG biofeedback)

Your therapist at Saarthi Counselling Services might also recommend undergoing couples therapy to address difficulties that may arise in your personal life because of work stress.
