Manage Stress, Anxiety, and
Depression with a Trained Counselor

 

How Are You, Today?

Did you know, feeling overwhelmed, tired, exhausted, distracted, not getting enough sleep - are all mere SYMPTOMS of neglected emotional issues. Your mind is a complex machine. And, counseling for Stress, Depression, and Anxiety is the specialist help it needs from time to time.


Talking to a trained therapist helps you understand the root cause of the problem. And soon, the symptoms begin to diminish.

You are an Infinite Being

You are NOT your burdens, dear reader. You’re an infinite being with a finite, albeit heavy load. And it’s not the load that breaks you down.

But the way we carry our load.

The most common life-events that trigger stress or anxiety are:

  • Losing a loved one or a friendship
  • Natural complications of Marriage
  • Being a Caregiver
  • Moving to a new place
  • Taking up new roles - parenthood, job titles...

But, what is the difference between Stress and Anxiety?

Stress and anxiety have similar symptoms - broken sleep cycle, appetite change, fatigue, body aches, irritability, poor attention span.

What’s different is the CAUSE.

Stress is a tangible, present threat whereas Anxiety is a perceived threat regarding the future.

Stress is usually a temporary experience and is overcome once the cause has been resolved. Anxiety is long-lasting. It’s experienced in the form of constant, persistent, and intrusive worry.

When it’s time to reach out...

There are times when you’re able to overcome the stress and tension that accompany anxiety with zero consequences.

But it’s time to seek therapy when you notice that:

  • your relationships are suffering
  • your productivity is decreasing, or
  • your overall persona and daily routine is getting impacted

Therapy is a communication-based healing mechanism tailored to your specific needs. Your anxiety or stress may look completely different from mine - a trained therapist has a deep understanding of this.
