"Thank You! Our last session was so personalised for me, I really appreciate it. I am so inspired to change" Actress, Herts.

"It helped me focus on what key issues are really important to me - some which I had not given enough thought to in the past.  This enabled me to consider what changes I could make which would really make a difference to my outlook on life rather than continue to 'plod along' as I had been doing in the past."

Stress Management

Stress Management and Life Coaching

stressAre you stressed?  Stress can be looked at simply as the result of the imbalance between the demands being made on you (or by you) and the resources you have to cope with those demands.

  • Demands - Money, costs, parents, deadlines, urgency, spouse, family, high expectations, time, friends etc.
    Resources - Money, tools, mental tools, abilities, thoughts, inner strength, support etc.

Do you see the stress in your life as a negative force?  Has your own company burnt you out? You do not need to!  Stress is a valuable message from your inner-self that you are currently living out of balance.  Take notice of the valuable advice from within. Do you ignore your inner self?  Even worse than ignoring your inner self, do you turn off the message by taking a "pain killer", "relaxant" or indulge in a side-track habit. 

I also offer stress reduction workshops, keynotes and seminars at your company events.

Stress is the tension that manifests in our entire mind-body when you are not honouring your true self, your values or your basic human abilities.  Stress is a signal to you that change is needed in your life.  Your incredible body knows that you are out of kilter, and is telling you so by giving you a complete mind-body experience (feel it, you are carrying it in your muscles, and it is affecting your thoughts and feelings) called stress.  If ignored, stress will embed itself into your mind-body with disastrous results called dis-ease.  It is sometimes hard to see the full picture when you are in a state of panic; I can help you. If you suffer from panic attacks, try this.

Listen to what your body is saying and seize the opportunity of confident ongoing change towards a state of inner-peace and stress free living.  As a life and stress management coach I help you tune into the messages that your stress is trying to reveal to you, sharing with you valuable skills that you can apply through your entire life, training you in using bodily awareness and intuition techniques that can transmute your stress into guidance that will allow you to assert yourself and change your life for the better.  Stress management becomes intuitive guidance, which becomes an agent for starting to live a peaceful, fulfilling life.  Alchemy in action.  Think about it, if you were not stressed, you would not have read this and you would not be considering making lasting positive changes to the way that you living.

The law that ‘what YOU perceive, think and believe, is reality’ will be the ‘life, the reality and the day-to-day living’ – which you will experience.

Stress management life coaching will make great use of the arts of intuitive awareness and life purpose coaching as well as the opportunities that are presented creating balance in your life, by life change in general, or maybe a career change.  The coaching goal is to create a state of lasting peace and happiness.  As a stress management coach I customise a program for you that takes your stress and turns it into the basis for creating a great life for yourself.  

Reflect on your stress, you will see that the stress you feel is not a result of what is actually happening to you, much of your stress comes from what you think about that isn’t happening at the moment -- you are worried about the future or angry about the past, or just consumed and overwhelmed by the demands our capitalist culture place on you... As a Life Coach I help already successful people navigate the challenges, changes and dreams that arise through adult life.  I relish change as the most powerful tool we have to get what we want out of life.  I will support you through the changes you want to make to achieve the stress-free life you desire.  

Stress impacts on businesses as well in terms of productivity, absenteeism and staff turn-over. Stress is now the number one cause of absenteeism at work. The UK Health and Safety Executive estimate that more than 50% of all sickness absence is due to stress and that 500,000 people are severely suffering from work related stress in the UK

Stress affects attitude, flexibility, effectiveness and the ability to think clearly. Stress is not only about workload, the causes of stress and the ways that we deal with it are different for everyone. Stress can be defined as 'the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressure or other types of demand placed on them'. The key here is that you can't always stop excessive pressure or demand - but you can change your adverse reaction. People are a major asset in business, it makes sense to look after them. This not only benefits the person, it massively impacts on the business

Stress can have a massive effect on any business, not just through absenteeism, but also through lack of cooperative working, lack of attention to detail, bad management and poor working practices. A stressed employee is also likely to experience a decrease in commitment to their job

Common stress symptoms are typically impatience, irritability, anxiety, boredom or frustration. Stress can also cause us to feel anything from hopelessness to rage and cause problems that will eventually effect long term health. We often feel that we can't do anything about stress, that it's 'just the way it is'. But if we choose to ignore stress signals, the consequences are enormous. Long term stress is paralysing and destructive.

stress managementTake up the challenge of designing a stress-free future. Using a safe and supportive foundation of trust, freedom of expression and commitment, I always work to help you explore your inner being, to regain balance in your personal and working life and to align with your true values and fullest potential. Using a stimulating face-to-face, phone support and email program customised to fit your current personal development needs, my coaching focuses on your inner guidance, purpose, skills, beliefs, techniques and processes necessary to take you into a great no-failure future.

I partner with intelligent, successful people who want to excel at their passion, gifts and unique talents in a way that brings them success, happiness and balance. Otherwise, do what you always did and you will get what you always got!

Try This...

It's no secret that stress is a big factor in many lives, but often we underestimate its effect on us and our bodies. Just as aches and pains can change our state of mind, in the same way, our thoughts and feelings can affect our bodies. This is known as the Mind-Body Connection.  When we feel stressed, our body tenses up. We get a "tension headache," or we lose our appetite, or our shoulders get really tight. It's our body's way of telling us that something is out of balance.

Our bodies weren't really designed to sit in one position without moving, and yet "work," as many of us know it, consists of doing exactly that. When we sit motionless while working under pressure or feeling panicked, we can end up storing that stress physically in various places in the body, be it a tension headache, sore back, tight shoulders and neck.

This continues to be a beautiful process to watch: when we are open to what our bodies are saying to us, we are then open to our own healing. Pain is our body's way of trying to talk to us, of saying, "Hey! I don't like this! This really hurts, and I'm trying to get your attention!" Pain means there's something not quite right. It makes sense when you think about it really--when we are in a pain-free state, a state free of tension, we are in a state of ease, balance, and harmony.

So start to notice your thoughts and feelings when you feel your shoulders tense up. Take a deep breath, consciously relax, and try to listen when your body talks. So what can we do when we find ourselves in a state of physical tension?

Here are ten easy steps to a more stress-free life:

  • Live in your body, not in your head.
  • Remember to breathe
  • Become aware of your posture.. change it
  • Make a conscious effort to get up and walk around every half-hour or so.
  • Notice your inner dialogue
  • Be your own best friend. Ask yourself why am I nervous? Stressed? Overwhelmed? Why?
  • Be realistic about your limitations
  • Cry when you need to
  • Maintain a good sense of humour
  • Exercise the stress out of your body... go to the gym

OK now that you have done that.... are you interested in working with a life coach?
