stress anxiety panicStress is an individual’s response to external problems such as impossibly high expectations from employers and families, constant life interruptions that affect our ability to carry out the usual routines of daily life or demands such as loans and mortgages.

Stress can have an overwhelming effect on our lives; symptoms being physical, psychological, behavioural and sometimes as acute as a state of ‘daze’ followed by further withdrawal or agitation, over activity and signs of panic. If stress symptoms are affecting you, it is time to seek treatment.

At Psychiatry and Therapy Center of New York, our specialist psychiatrists and psychologists recognise that without comprehensive and bespoke treatment, stress can become a persistent issue, have a negative impact on your health, and can be extremely difficult to cope with.

Treatment at Psychiatry and Therapy Center of New York is tailored according to individual requirements in order to engender the best possible outcomes for each and every one of our patients. Treatment includes:

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) – a form of psychotherapy that encourages individuals to challenge unhealthy thought processes and develop new and healthier ways of viewing their life

Mindfulness – a form of therapy for stress that equips individuals with the skills to accept and process negative emotions without becoming overwhelmed by them, and to focus on how they feel in the present moment

1:1 stress counselling – therapy that takes place between the patient and the most appropriate psychiatrist or psychologist for their needs. This form of stress management allows for an in-depth exploration of issues and unique symptoms
