Simply put, the point of counselling is to feel better. You deal with stress on a daily basis. Stress can build up over time and many of us have a stress tolerance to deal with frustration and anger that result from both our professional and personal lives. Yet, every so often, there comes a point that we are not able to cope with everything that’s going on and we become overwhelmed. What was once easy to deal with become increasingly difficult.
Sometimes, we’re not aware that when we’re stressed out we experience pain in our bodies whether it’s in our neck, shoulders, or other parts. In addition, we may experience nausea, headaches, heartburn, and other somatic symptoms that may not necessarily be related to physical health ailments, but rather mental health ailments. Our bodies are equipped with warning signs to signal to us when we are not doing well.
