Stress is inevitable in life

Psychotherapy is the preferred treatment of stress-related symptoms. Psychotherapy will teach you to more effectively manage your reaction to challenging events in your life. This may involve learning new skills, such as assertiveness, or time management. It may also involve changing some of your attitudes about yourself, others, and the world. There are many aspects of our lives that we don’t have direct control over. We have some ability to change our own behaviors and attitudes, however, and working with a therapist may help you make the changes you need to effectively cope with stress. You will never be completely free of stress. However, stress can become toxic, especially if the stress lasts longer than a few weeks.
