Stress Reduction Clinic

Live with greater calm, balance, and resilience

Stress is an attempt by the body to adjust or adapt to change. Since change is an element of being alive, we can expect that stress is an inevitable part of living.

Explore new ways of managing stress, and design a plan for living with greater balance, calm, and resilience. 

Learn to respond with more ease and control, and reduce the reactivity that so many of us are vulnerable to.

We utilize a range evidence-based techniques for managing the mental, emotional, physical, and relationship symptoms of stress.

Symptoms of Stress

How does stress show up in your life?

Stress reactions tend to take similar forms, including:

Experiences of distress, tension, anxiety, and worry. Our patterns of thinking and feeling  about the world often exacerbate our response to stress.

Physical symptoms such as raised blood pressure, tension headaches, or digestive problems. Chronic stress tends to create dis-ease. Take a pro-active approach to stress and protect your health.

Unhealthy habits, such as smoking, overeating, and overdrinking. These short-term solutions to changing how we feel in the moment often create their own health issues in the long-term.

Suffering deterioration in performance and concentration. If you are noticing that keeping up with life is becoming a challenge, you could need some skills to help you reset your mind, body, and emotions.

Increased conflicts or decreased satisfaction in personal relationships. Harmonious and satisfying relationships are the best antidote to stress that we have. Get your connections back on track so that they are a source of support and comfort.

Tailored Programs

We offer a range of evidence-based approaches to stress reduction, resilience, and emotional calm.
