Stress – Susanne Gilmour

Susanne Gilmour     Quals: BA, Cert Teach, Grad Dip Social Science, Grad Dip Psych, MAPS.

Stress: Stress is a common mental health issue in our highly competitive, image-obsessed society, and can have huge impacts on both physical and mental health as well as our relationships.

Counselling Approach: Before working with a client to implement strategies to deal with this very common condition, Susanne Gilmour will carry out an interview and administer a standardised  assessment to ensure that stress is the problem and not better diagnosed as anxiety and /or depression.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and exploration of possible changes in diet, lifestyle, sleep and work patterns, exercise to boost resilience and the immune system, usually prove to be very beneficial for the client. Sometimes it is useful to discuss major life changes the client may be considering, to deal with severe stressors in their current situation. Strategies to think through making major decisions can be helpful in this case. In particular, the practice of Mindfulness  has been shown to be very effective in the management of stress.
