Starting Stress management therapy

What type of therapy do I need for stress?

Thriveworks offers Stress management therapy, a type of therapy that helps people learn how to effectively manage and release their stress through the use of relaxation techniques, time-management practices, and mindfulness, among others. Relieving stress can greatly improve an individual's mental health, as stress can detrimentally affect one's emotional and physical well-being.

How does stress management therapy work?

Stress management therapy functions by identifying the source(s) of stress and the thoughts, emotions, and experiences that are tied to it, then addressing them and creating healthy strategies for dealing with stress on a long-term basis. Additionally, Stress management therapy also helps people discover what warning signs they have that can let them know that they are stressed so that they can be more proactive in managing it.

What is the most effective therapy for stress management?

The effectiveness of stress management therapy can vary from person to person, but some widely used and effective approaches include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), and relaxation techniques.

What are 5 stress management strategies?

5 stress management counseling strategies include:

  • Deep breathing: Practice deep, slow breathing exercises to calm your body's stress response.
  • Exercise: Regular physical activity can help reduce stress and improve your overall well-being.
  • Mindfulness meditation: Engage in mindfulness or meditation practices to stay present and reduce anxiety.
  • Time management: Organize your tasks and priorities to minimize stress related to time pressures.
  • Social support: Share your feelings and concerns with friends or a therapist for emotional support and problem-solving.

Should you go to therapy for stress?

Whether to seek therapy for stress depends on the severity and impact of the stress on your life. If stress is significantly affecting your well-being, relationships, or daily functioning, therapy can be a helpful option to learn coping strategies and gain support. It's important to assess your own needs and consult a mental health professional for guidance on whether therapy is appropriate for your situation.

Does stress management help anxiety?

Yes, stress management counseling can help significantly reduce the amount of stress that you feel.

Is stress management therapy conducted in person or online?

Stress management treatment at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does stress management therapy last?

For those with low amounts of anxiety and stress and simple goals, stress management therapy can be fewer than 12 sessions. However, for those with intense anxiety and more severe symptoms, therapy will likely last longer in order to effectively treat their stress and mitigate their symptoms.

Need more help deciding?

You’re running late to work for the fifth time this month. You can’t help but stress and wonder, “Am I going to get fired?”

Your daughter is screaming in the cereal aisle, and all of your pleas for her to stop are failing. Your blood pressure skyrockets.

Your plane ride has gone smoothly until now. You start sweating and your heartrate increases with the turbulence.

It’s no secret that we all feel stressed from time to time but many of us could use a little help managing our stress. Fortunately, there are professionals who specialize in stress management techniques: These professionals are called stress therapists. If you are in Palm Beach, FL or Delray Beach, FL and you’re struggling to manage stress, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Boca Raton stress therapy.

What Is Stress? What Are Symptoms of Stress?

We know you’ve experienced stress too many times to count, but you might not understand it completely. Hear us out. Stress is our reaction to threats and our evolved fight or flight response. Today, these threats include losing a job, having an argument with a friend or family member, sitting in traffic, losing a loved one, and experiencing relationship issues. Many of us will encounter these stressors more than once over the course of our lives, and the way we react to them can make a huge difference. A flight response might mean screaming at the wheel at the traffic in front of you, and a fight response would be breathing through your frustration.

Managing stress isn’t easy. It’s much easier to just let your stress and anger take over. But letting this flight response take over is not ideal for your mental health. If you are in the Palm Beach area and you are experiencing stress, consider attending stress management at Thriveworks Boca Raton. They can help you to manage the following symptoms of stress:

  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Stomach aches
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Overwhelm

These symptoms signify stress and can lead to additional negative health outcomes. This means that learning to manage your stress is incredibly important. Fortunately, a stress management therapist or psychologist can help you do so. All you have to do is call us to schedule an appointment to get started.

Pamela really helped me through some difficult issues; she helped me to understand the people in my life and how to interact with them and understand why they are how to understand them. With that knowledge, I am better able to interact. It is very helpful to have someone I can share everything with. And Pamela is that person for me.

My husband and I sought counseling due to several significant issues in our marriage. We were distraught and on the verge of divorce. Jeannie's approach to marriage counseling led us through a process that changed my perspective on my husband's actual needs and his to my needs. We didn't hear what the other was truly saying! I would highly recommend Jeannie to work with any couple from minor issues to major issues in their marriage.
