Stress & anxiety

Stress is your body reaction to a trigger and is generally a short-term experience. It can be positive or negative. It is a response to a threat in any given situation. While anxiety, on the opposite hand, is a slowly growing mental health disorder that can be further triggered by stress. Worrying about tomorrow many people get in trouble. And it takes today’s peace and people start feeling stressed and anxious.

Many symptoms are common to both stress and anxiety like sleep problems, appetite changes, tiredness, irritable mood, lack of focus and attention etc. It also affects our friends and family, loss of a marriage, and our loved ones.

What may be stressful and triggering for one individual may not be stressful at all for another and vice versa.

Therapy Approach:

Depression and Tension:

Anxiety is typically characterized by tense feelings, overly worrying about things, and physiological changes like increased blood pressure, sweating, palpitations etc. Stressors for anxiety issues often includes dysfunctional/toxic personal relationships, work pressure, school environment, or financial security.

Trauma and PTSD:

Like anxiety, trauma experience of trauma is highly subjective. What might be traumatic for one individual might be a very normal everyday experience for another. When you’ve gone through something traumatic, it can seem like you’ll never feel safe again. However, it is strongly determined by how you deal with the trauma. Trauma can include persistent fatigue, sleep disorders, nightmares, fear of recurrence, anxiety focused on flashbacks, depression, and avoidance of emotions, sensations, or activities that are associated with the trauma, even remotely. Irrelevant of when the trauma happened, one can find a way to heal, let go of the pain, and overcome the fears. It’s normal to feel frightened, sad, anxious, and disconnected after a traumatic experience. But if the anxiety and fear doesn’t fade or interferes too much with normal functioning, it might be have turned into post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

LGBTQ and Mental Health:

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or queer (LGBTQ) individuals often face significant barriers when accessing mental health services. Barriers to care include discomfort or fear of disclosing LGBTQ identity because of real or perceived homophobia, biphobia, and/or transphobia, a patient’s own internalized homophobia, biphobia, and/or transphobia, and heterosexist and/or cisgenderism assumptions on intake forms and during health care encounters. Can you imagine waking up one morning to realize you cannot relate to societal norms? Everything that you’ve been taught about yourself is not relatable for you. You try talking to your parents, and they just do not pay adequate attention to it, friends make fun of you for being different and you start feeling betrayed by a reality that claims to be rightful and normal... but for who?

Social Anxiety:

Most of us fear, being evaluated by others around us. This fear further increases when it’s on a stage and entirely focused on us. Such anxiety originates from disturbing past experiences or negative thought patterns which can be deep rooted. However, our counsellors can help you by breaking the thought pattern, desensitising the problem, practicing relaxation and calming techniques.

Peer Pressure:

Peer pressure is generally classified as learning certain things by your friends and peer group which you might not have learnt independently. If you're with friends who do something that you typically would not approve of and they convince you to do the same, that is an example of peer pressure. Peer pressure is not necessarily always negative. Furthermore, positive peer pressure can drive kids to take a stand for what is right and learn rightful things. For instance, in 2012, millions of India kids were out in the streets to protest against sexual harassment and rape. While many came forward because they strongly believed in the cause, multiple kids came with friends out of peer pressure. Our counsellors can help you cope with negative peer pressure by developing resilience and provide guidance about positive peer pressure.

Financial stress:

Financial stress can be very debilitating for our mental health. Financial status is also directly related to sleep problems, negative thoughts and multiple emotional problems. Uncertainty of future keeps us worked up and contributes to the vicious cycle of ongoing stress and anxiety. In such a situation, one must focus on what can be done. Healthy minds can produce far more healthier solutions than unhealthy ones. Our counsellors can help you through this by discovering unhealthy habits and adapting to more productive ones.
