Stress Awareness Month...Are You Heading for Burnout?

Did you know that it's Stress Awareness Month?
 
Did you know that many of the people we work with in psychotherapy and counselling tell us:
 
I AM SOOOOO STRESSED!!
 
I FEEL I AM AT BREAKING POINT!
 
I AM SO OVERWHELMED BY WORK AND LIFE!!
 
Stress, overwhelm and burnout affect us in so many different ways: they affect how our brain works; they affect us physically; they affect our feelings and emotions and how we deal with them; they affect us at work and socially; and stress, overwhelm and burnout also affect our relationships and quality of life.
That's a lot of things that stress, overwhelm and burnout can affect, isn't it?
 
Yet, many of us go along, just putting up with it until we arrive at some sort of breaking point and start feeling panic, anxious, out-of-control, exhausted and maybe even lost.
 
It doesn't have to be like that though.
 
There are lots of things you can do, with support, to help both prevent, and manage, stress, overwhelm and burnout. Some involve simple strategies that help keep us on an even keel. For others, a deeper understanding of their concerns are problems are needed.
 
Whatever the case might be, our psychotherapists and counsellors are here to help you with stress, overwhelm and burnout (and a whole host of other things too).
 
Therapy and counselling is provided by fully qualified and insured skilled and experienced therapists who are supportive, encouraging, warm and who aim to tailor therapy to you and your preferences at this time.
Therapy goes at your pace and there is no expectation to attend for a certain number of sessions. You are in the driving seat and your therapist will regularly review how things are going to ensure sessions are as beneficial to you as possible.
 
Stress also affects our physical health, digestion and gut microbiome, so it's important to eat in a balanced way to help combat stress and tension physically too. That's why we also offer nutritional therapy with an experienced dietitian too. 
 
If you would like support with stress, overwhelm and burnout, or with anything else, feel free to get in touch and find out how we can support you.
 
We can provide in-person appointments at our offices in Glasgow city centre and online appointments anywhere in the UK.
 
Our contact details are below. The infographic below also illustrates how stress and burnout can affect us. You may recognise some of this in yourself too. We hope you find the infographic useful in helping you to become aware of your own thoughts, feelings and experiences.

Focus on..... Binge Eating Disorder

  Focus on..... Binge Eating Disorder (BED)   Binge Eating Disorder or BED is often characterised by someone consuming very large amounts of food over short period of time, even if they are not hungry. Although, we often see another form of binge eating that is characterised by an almost constant 'grazing' of food, which may amount to a large volume of food over time. BED is almost 2x as common in women than in men, although gender differences are less pronounced than in Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa. BED has been found is all cultures and ethnicities. BED was formally classified in 2014 as distinct Eating Disorder and now has formal classification in DSM-5. Keeping in mind that everyone experiencing BED is different and BED may present differently (we are all different and unique, after all!), some of the signs and symptoms of BED include: * Feeling out-of-control when eating during a binge episode. * Often hiding food (before it has been eaten or hiding empty packets a
