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 stuck in traffic and it’s going to make you late for work for the third time in the last two weeks. You stress about losing your job.

Your son is screaming because you told him you couldn’t have any more candy. Immediately, your blood pressure rises.

You worry that you won’t make it through security in time for your flight. You can feel your heartbeat quicken as you race through the airport.

There is no way to completely eliminate stress from your life. We all experience it on a regular basis, and some of us even on a daily basis. The good news is that there are professionals out there who specialize in helping people better manage their stress. If you are in the Broward County area, consider working with the stress therapists at Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale, FL. These professionals know everything there is to know about stress management and they want to help you better cope with the stressors in your life. Give Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale a call today to schedule an appointment at (754) 400-5514.

What Are the Symptoms of Stress? Do I Need Stress Management?

We know that you are familiar with stress—maybe too familiar with stress. But do you know what stress really is? Stress is our reaction to perceived threats. So, for example, common threats (or stressors) include meeting deadlines at work, losing one’s job, fighting with others, sitting in traffic, losing a friend or family member, and having relationship issues. Many of us encounter these threats multiple times throughout our life, and how we react to them has a huge effect on our overall health and wellbeing. An example of a “flight response” is banging on the horn when you’re stuck sitting in traffic; a flight response would be deep breathing or mindful meditation.

Managing stress properly is not an easy feat. It’s a lot easier to let your stress and frustration take control. That being said, allowing your stress to take over is not good in the long wrong as it can have negative consequences on your mental health and wellbeing. So, if you are in the Broward County area, consider attending stress therapy at Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale for stress management help. We have therapists and psychologists on staff who can help you manage the harmful symptoms of stress including:

  • Insomnia and other sleep disturbances
  • Fatigue and lack of concentration
  • Physical illness or aches
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Anger or irritability

The above symptoms let you know that you might be overloaded with stress. It’s your mind and body telling you that you need to do something about it. Fortunately, there is an effective stress management option right in front of you: stress therapy at Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale in Broward County. To get started, simply call us and we will schedule your appointment.

I recently switched from "Doctors On Demand" to "Thriveworks." I am seeing both a psychiatrist and a talk therapist. Both have thus far been exceptional. My psychiatrist is thorough in evaluating how medications are effecting me and advising possible alternatives if we need to reconsider a course of action. I appreciate his holistic approach to my treatment, probing how diet and other lifestyle choices may impact my emotional well being. My talk therapist listens carefully to me, shares a central theme that emerges from our session and recommends exercises that help delve deeper into issues that impact my ability to cope and thrive. I amvery happy with their service. Thank you.

Pedro is an excellent clinician who's primary concern is his clients wellbeing. He goes above and beyond to provide the best clinical care for his patients, and creates an individualized treatment plan to help assist with their specific needs. The clinical world is far better off having someone like this practicing in the field.
