Occupational/Relational/School Stress

Stress in small, manageable amounts can be useful and can help with productivity and motivation. When stress is overwhelming, however, it can cause a range of problems including relationship stress, occupational stress or stress in school for younger individuals. A few symptoms of stress may include upset digestive or reproductive systems, increased blood pressure and weakening of the immune system.

Stress may also lead to other mental health and physical problems such as anxiety, panic attacks and even depression. Psychotherapy for coping with stress may help individuals to manage stress at school, stress at work as well as stress in relationships and not allow it to impact in a negative way as well as find coping skills to deal with the stress.
