Do you feel like you have low energy or mood? Do you get angry more easily? Are you struggling to concentrate at work or school? Is your sleep being affected by stress?

Stress is a normal human reaction that happens to us all, It can sometimes bring benefit, keeping us alert and motivated. However, constantly being in a state of stress can cause physical, emotional and behavioural symptoms to develop. Burnout, often associated with work pressures, occurs after excessive and prolonged stress, and can leave you low in energy and mood, and feeling helpless.

April is Stress Awareness Month and we are launching our new Stress Management Program to support you to tackle and manage the stress in your life and put in place coping techniques.

Stress and the resulting emotional dysregulation can affect relationships, the ability to manage anger, personal happiness and satisfaction. The Stress Management Program is designed to help you to develop the skills needed to manage stress and burnout.

Equip yourself with tangible, action-oriented strategies and tools

You’ll work with your own dedicated psychologist and exercise physiologist who will support you in implementing strategies (focusing on both mind and body) to manage and mitigate against stress and burnout.

Each professional will go over your goals, the barriers you experience in achieving those goals and put together a plan of how you can get there. You will walk away with a raft of strategies and actionable steps to implement in your life.

Psychology Sessions

Psychology is the science of understanding how people think, feel, behave and learn. Although all people are inherently unique, humans tend to respond in similar ways to similar circumstances.

A typical psychology session is founded in conversation between the patient and therapist. Depending on the psychological approach, you may also complete a number of activities, imagery exercises or meditations.

The purpose of psychology is to help you better understand your thoughts, behaviours and circumstances. It is also oriented to finding solutions to your problems. A significant portion of your psychological treatment will be focused on developing realistic, healthy and practical strategies for the future.

 

Exercise Physiology Sessions

Our exercise physiologists design individual exercise plans for each patient at The Banyans Health Plus. Your plan will consider your current level of physical fitness, mobility, flexibility and other existing conditions. Body measurements (such as lean muscle mass and percentage of body fat) are taken at the beginning and end of your program to track your progress.

An exercise physiologist will then work with you to activate your individual exercise plan. These sessions will motivate and inspire you to adopt healthy exercise habits and will also grow healthy lifestyle discipline to combat stress in your life.
