Stress can affect many of us at different times in our lives and the cause can be varied. What may not cause stress at one time may do at another time in your life, at times we can be more susceptible and vulnerable to stress. Stress is when the pressure you are under goes beyond your ability to cope. Talking with a qualified counsellor can allow you to talk through any of these symptoms

Psychological symptoms of stress can include:
  • constant worrying
  • an inability to concentrate
  • feeling that you have poor judgement
  • seeing only the negative
  • anxious thoughts
  • memory problems
If you're affected emotionally by stress, your symptoms may include:
  • mood swings or changes in your mood
  • irritability or having a short temper
  • an inability to relax
  • feeling overwhelmed
  • a sense of loneliness
  • depression
  • low self-esteem
Your behaviour might also change and you may be:
  • eating more or less than usual
  • sleeping too much or too little
  • isolating yourself from others
  • neglecting or putting off responsibilities
  • using alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs to relax
  • developing nervous habits, for example, nail biting or not being able to sit still
Stress can affect you physically, causing symptoms such as:
  • aches and pains
  • diarrhoea and constipation
  • nausea or dizziness
  • chest pains
  • loss of sex drive
These symptoms may be caused by problems other than stress and it may be worth a chat with your GP.
