Treatment of stress with a psychologist - various mechanisms
When you seek psychological help for stress with Psykologvirke, we begin by mapping which specific mechanisms are the driving force behind your specific difficulties.
We separate between basic foundational factors, triggering factors and sustaining factors.
Once we have mapped these factors, we will know more about what is needed to give the best treatment for stress in your specific case and how the treatment will be structured.
Simply becoming conscious of the inner dynamics that are driving your stress is often therapeutic in itself.
Therapy for stress and stress management - various methods
There are various recommended methods for treating stress. For example, mindfulness, biofeedback training, intensive short-term depth therapy (ISTDP), emotion-focused therapy, metacognitive therapy, cognitive therapy and psychodynamic therapy.
There is no one method that is right for everyone all the time. The determining factor for a successful treatment for stress issues is that we collaborate in a way that is meaningful for you.
Our professional assessments will form a starting point, and then together we will evaluate the ongoing progress as well as any need for potential adjustments.
We always offer individual tailoring in the treatment of stress.
Challenges and safety
We place great value on creating a foundation of trust and safety and of being open and forthright about what we are thinking and doing at any given moment.
Within such a framework you can best practice new ways to handle the anxiety that, on some level, is connected to breaking patterns of stress, and step freely back into life with a greater sense of calm.
Stress management on your own
There are a number of exercises and methods for individual stress management.
Examples of these include mindfulness exercises, relaxation exercises, breathing exercises etc.
Another aspect of stress management involves limiting your cumulative amount of stress. This can be demanding. At times this can be due to purely practical reasons, and frankly, often for psychological reasons as well.
Another aspect of managing your own stress involves working with inner stressors. External stressors are not always the main problem.
Part of the challenge can actually be in how one psychologically reacts when met with stressors.
An important first step to being able to regulate your stress levels is to be aware that you are actually stressed in the first place. The ability to objectively observe oneself is crucial.
Once you can actually register within your body that you are stressed, it becomes possible to regulate via tools such as breathing, relaxation and attentional control.
Far too many of us ignore our internal lives to such an extent that we are unable to utilize these techniques when we actually need them.
