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.
