How can we and our therapies help release stress?
Even with the greatest will in the world in taking care of ourselves, we all experience stress at different times in our lives. It can affect us in many ways both physically, mentally and emotionally.
The range of therapies we offer are designed to accomplish positive change in both the workplace and family situations. Aisling & Ray of Accomplish Change enable you with everyday stress and work related stress to become more relaxed, to become calmer, and to take control of your stressful situation and deal with it.
Stress that is not discharged stays within the body and can emerge as physical, mental or emotional symptoms.
It is important to know your own tendencies for responding to stress, so you can be alert to the build-up of tension within you.
Symptoms of stress can take many forms. Some like insomnia are loud warning bells. Others like turning to drink, over-eating or over-smoking can be masked as they are part of the dominant culture at work:
‘Everyone here gets pissed regularly — it’s the only way we cope, We all go through phases when we put on an act!’ said one client of ours.
Negative stress: This is the result of a bullying climate where threats and coercion are used to disguise poor management skills. When people use the word "stress" they usually mean "negative stress". Various negative stressful situations in the workplace can give rise to emotional, psychological or physical problems. They can create distorted cognitive thinking, fatigue, lack of job satisfaction, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, irritability, bullying and harassment.

It’s so easy to get caught in a cycle of negative stress making us less effective which gives us more stress.
We become stressed and overly burdened by the work when we absorb more disturbance, distress and disease from our work load, colleagues, family than we are able to process and let go of.
It is very important that you take responsibility for noticing the signs that your system is overloaded rather than having to sit with the pain of the situation, place or event; or having to contain the frustration or having to cope with situations in which you feel undertrained, drained or emotionally inadequately unprepared for.
Take care of Yourself ~ Put YOURSELF first ~ because YOU are worth it!
