Frequently Asked Questions

Stress therapy is a specialized form of counselling that focuses on helping individuals understand, manage, and reduce their stress levels. It involves working with a trained therapist to identify stressors, develop coping strategies, and learn relaxation techniques. 

You can participate in stress therapy online through video or phone sessions. Online therapy has become increasingly popular due to its convenience and accessibility, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, research has shown that online treatment can be as effective as in-person therapy for stress management and other mental health concerns.

Cortisol is the primary hormone responsible for stress. The adrenal glands produce it and plays a critical role in the body's response to stress. Cortisol helps regulate various physiological processes, including blood sugar levels, metabolism, immune response, and blood pressure. During stressful situations, cortisol production increases to prepare the body for a "fight or flight" response, enabling individuals to better cope with the immediate challenge. However, chronic exposure to high cortisol levels due to ongoing stress can negatively affect physical and mental health.

Chronic stress can indeed have harmful effects on the brain. Prolonged exposure to stress hormones, such as cortisol, can impact brain structure and function.
