Stress Reduction Surry Hills
Rediscover Your Wellbeing
Paul Jozsef Counselling & Psychotherapy provides psychological and emotional health support for stress reduction.
My name is Paul. I’m a counsellor based in Surry Hills, Sydney. I specialise in working with adults and adolescents experiencing difficulty with stress.
What is stress?
Everyone experiences stress from time to time, it is a common reaction to the demands and pressure of modern life. While a small amount of stress can motivate us, prolonged levels of stress can impact our relationships and affect both our physical and mental health.
Symptoms of stress include:
- Anxiety and depression
- Aches, pains, and tense muscles
- Upset stomach, including diarrhea, constipation, and nausea
- Frequent colds and infections
- Loss of sexual desire and/or ability
What is stress reduction counselling?
I offer a range of evidence-based treatments to help you identify why you feel stressed and equip you with the necessary skills and strategies to deal with the stressful situations that may trigger it. Using a variety of cognitive and behavioural techniques, therapy for stress can help you move toward a more comfortable and contented life.
Stress counselling may include helping you identify the causes of your stress, managing underlying emotions, strengthening assertiveness skills and looking at general relaxation strategies such as mindfulness practices, breathing and muscle relaxation techniques.
Counselling for stress can be very effective at helping you learn to recognise the triggers of your stress, its origins, and how to overcome it.
My practice is conveniently located in Surry Hills, a short walk from Central train station.
If you are interested in discussing your specific needs, how I might be able to help, or to book a free, no obligation brief consultation (5-10 minutes), please feel free to contact me.
