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?

Who would have thought our world would be shaken by – a virus?  It’s the 21st century, right? We’re an advanced society.  This isn’t supposed to happen, not today.  Yet here we are – not just our country, but the entire world – struggling to make sense of it.  Trying to stay healthy, to stay alive.  Concerned about financial issues.  Wondering how long this will last and what the “new normal” will look like?

To say that this pandemic is stressful is putting it lightly! Everyone experiences stress – it’s normal; and while we often have the coping stills to manage that stress, we’re finding that we may not have the coping skills we need to manage coronavirus-related stress.  Maybe this feels like your situation.  If so, you’re not alone.  Many people are struggling with new challenges, thoughts, and fears now – but you don’t have to go through this alone.  Thriveworks Greenville online counselors can help! (864) 952-4048

What is Stress?

Stress occurs when we are faced with persistent challenges, particularly ones where the choices are difficult – possibly not even ours to make.  Stress keeps us alert, hyper-focused on a thought, task, or outcome.  When experiencing stressful situations, our senses are heightened, creating the “fight or flight” response.  Some stress is fine. It can wake us up and make us more aware. Too much stress can create serious emotional and physiological issues.  If left untreated, stress can lead to:

  • headaches,
  • increased blood pressure,
  • anxiety,
  • chest pain,
  • gastrointestinal issues,
  • sleep issues, and
  • depression

What are Coping Skills?

Coping skills, sometimes referred to as “coping mechanisms,” are tools that people use when faced with challenges that create stress in their lives.  These tools aren’t limited to dealing with stress either.  Coping skills are commonly used for managing depression, phobias, trauma, or any type of painful emotion, feeling, or memory.  Coping skills are simply strategies for processing your feelings.  They provide the opportunity to differentiate between irrational and rational beliefs, giving you the ability to make appropriate adjustments to your thoughts and behaviors.  Simply put – coping skills are problem-solving tools to help you successfully manage stressful situations.

Coping with Stress During the COVID-19 Pandemic

It’s important to take care of yourself – mind, body, and spirit.  During periods of increased stress, people who take care of themselves find that they’re better prepared to face new challenges and overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.  Most of us have never experienced a pandemic such as COVID-19.  It’s no surprise that this unprecedented time has us feeling stressed out.  This is where Thriveworks Greenville Online Counseling can help.

Right now, our stress therapists are helping clients improve the quality of their lives, find more meaning, improve relationships, learn effective coping skills, …and much more.  Each stress therapist is a fully licensed professional counselor, with training and experience helping clients understand the root cause of stress and learn how to cope with it.  You don’t have to go through this alone – our stress counselors will partner with you.

For many people, traditional in-office stress therapy just isn’t the best option right now, but that’s not a problem at Thriveworks Greenville Online Counseling.  Our counselors are skilled at providing stress counseling online – by video or telephone.  Many insurance companies are now covering the cost of telehealth for mental health, making it more affordable than ever before to get help for your stress.

You Can Thrive, We Can Help!

There has never been a better time to improve the quality of your life.  Coronavirus-related stress is real and you shouldn’t ignore it.  Online stress counselors in Greenville are ready to help you manage, and even overcome, the struggles that create stress in your life. We offer convenient appointment times – that includes day, evening, and weekend hours.  Plus, we accept most major insurance plans.  And at Thriveworks Online Counseling in Greenville, there’s never a wait list for appointments.  In most cases, we can offer you an appointment in 24-48 hours.  So what are you waiting for?  Call today to schedule your first appointment with a caring stress counselor in Greenville, SC.  You can thrive, we can help!

Kathy Hope is certainly committed to following Jesus Christ and is grounded in her beliefs and knowledge of the Bible. She offers wise counsel based on these beliefs, but is nonjudgmental and attentive to listening to others with compassion, understanding and care. She is thoughtful and wise in her counsel. She can be counted on to be trustworthy and ethical.

Kathleen Horn was so understanding and non-judgmental. She was really nice to work with and had a way of making me look at and think about things differently. She worked with me on coping skills and changing my thoughts so I could change behaviors and feel better. She helped me through a tough time and now I feel a lot less depressed and anxious. I would go to her again. Thank you for all of your help!

LaKimberly Dowdell was an excellent counselor. She was a great listener, while at the same time knowing precisely the right moment to provide her expert knowledge. She is very personable and caring, yet knows what to say to support the change you are seeking. I highly recommend her.

The only reason why my Family stopped going to see Ms. Dowdell is because I had to change jobs and at the time my schedule would not allow us to continue services. She made sure my Family had a great transition to another Provider and that we had continuity of care. Now that my schedule has a little more flexibility, I am very thankful to be able to continue services with Ms. Dowdell who still remembers my Family’s history like we were just in her office yesterday (over 1 year ago)! She listens intently and never puts you down, and helps you understand your emotions and what issues and problems you may be going through in a way that you can understand but clearly. Personally, I deal with a lot of stress and being pulled in a lot of directions, and would when I felt as though my words did not make sense coming out of my mouth, she would know how to piece together what I was saying and not make me feel bad for being too vulnerable and made my therapy sessions a safe space to learn and grow from them. I am forever grateful for how she is helping my Family accept what we need to accept, change what we need to change, and heal from the root of our wounds; wounds I did not know were there. I highly recommend her.

Emily was the first therapist I had ever gone to after thinking for a long time it would be good for me. I was stuck in a rut and repeating patterns and using coping skills that were no longer helpful to me. She helped me work through many of my personal issues, some which had been stewing since childhood. She always knew when to push and when to back off if a certain issue was too sensitive at that time. She is honest yet kind. I was sad to see her move out of Chicago but I will forever be grateful for the tools she helped me to develop for dealing with the sh**show that life can be sometimes. She helped me get back into alignment with who I really am as a person. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is struggling or even just looking for a little more balance in their lives.

Emily has been an amazing help in my life for the past couple of years. She helped me see my worth when I couldn't see it myself. She helped me with my grief after losing my father. She helped me overcome my addictions with drugs and alcohol. She taught me to be kind to myself and that everyday is not gonna be an amazing day and that's okay. She helped me accept that I don't have to know the outcomes to big life changes that it's best to go with the flow, wear life like a loose garment. Emily is such and amazing counselor and I am forever grateful for everything she helped me see. Emily cares tremendously and I know deep in my heart she is gonna continue being the sunshine in many more client lives. Emily has made a huge impact on my life and I don't think I will ever find a counselor as down to earth as she is. Chicago misses you already!!! :) :) :)
