Stress & anxiety
Stress is our body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat – this can be physical, emotional or imagined.
Our built-in defences go on high alert in a rapid, automatic process known as our stress response. This is often described as our ‘fight or flight’ mode. Although this is designed to protect us (and in many situations is does) chronic stress, or constant tension or anxiety can take a toll our our health; body and mind.
If you do feel stressed, you are not alone. It is believed that over 74% of UK adults have felt so stressed at some point, and have felt overwhelmed or unable to cope. (Cit. MentalHealth.org).
There are many ways to support your emotional and physical wellbeing. The questionnaire below has been designed to offer us a little insight into your particular situation (everyone is different) and will help us offer you a little guidance in choosing the right path for you.
This questionnaire is not meant as a replacement for a GP or health practitioner’s care. The answers will help you focus your attention on specific areas of need.
