Stress symptoms & treatment

When a person is stressed the first thing they ask themselves is, “how can I get rid of the stress I feel?” While this question is obviously very important, it has the possibility of misrepresenting the situation. That is to say, what a person is looking for is not only to relieve the stress they feel at the moment but to learn how to cultivate the right strategies and coping mechanisms so that they can handle current and future stress.

It is very hard to completely eliminate stress from your life because life goes on and new problems arise, whether you would like them too or not. Thus, if you are stressed about your relationship with your boss or a coworker, it is of course good to have help with that specific issue but it is far better to also gain the necessary tools to handle other stressors in your life.

Use stress to your advantage

Another factor which people who are searching for stress relief should understand is that stress, in and of itself, is not necessarily a bad thing. Too much stress may lead to mental and physical health issues and may also psychologically impair a person into inaction, and this is what we all wish to avoid. However, stress also motivates us to do better. Just think of anytime when you have succeeded in your life; you were probably stressed about doing well which motivated you to work harder and thus allowed you to succeed.

Dr. Robert Schachter can help you manage, focus and relieve your stress.

Being a psychologist in New York for several decades I have seen the full gamut of stress related issues and how it affects my patients. Sometimes people have wound themselves up so tightly that they are showing numerous physical symptoms and at other times it has been hidden stressors in another area of life which has been causing trouble in a seemingly unrelated aspect of the patient’s life.

With an over 90% success rate and a Cognitive Therapy method which increases the speed of positive outcomes, you can have faith that we will be able to overcome the stifling stress you deal with.
