What is Stress?
“Stress can be described as a combination of unpleasant situations and unpleasant inner
personal experiences. People may find it difficult to separate stress reactions with the actual
causes of stress. Some causes of stress are pressure at work, difficulties in the family,
personal relationships, a traumatic event or even a new position of responsibilities
“Stress has been defined as a feeling of doubt about being able to cope, a perception that
the resources available do not match the demands made”
(Hicks & McSherry, 2006, pg11)

The brain activates as an arousal system during danger. The nervous system is in preparation for danger. When stress is triggered our body reacts with increase heart rate, releasing adrenaline, tunnel vision, constriction to certain block vessels.
The Amygdala is triggered which is a roughly almond-shaped mass of grey matter inside each cerebral hemisphere, involved with the experiencing of emotions.

How one person grieves is different from another. We all experience a variety of losses at different stages of our lives. It’s the times that we work through the grief, coming out the other side with more love, compassion, knowledge and wisdom.
Loss and Grief are rarely a topics people want to discuss because, its is full of anger, sadness, hurt and loneliness.
I can personally tell you that I have experience my fair share of grief in my life and have also guided many clients through the grieving process. By working on myself, therapy and asking for help has brought me to a place where I can understand and have complete empathy for the journey that you are on.
“Grief work is difficult, but before we begin to help others, we need to examine our own losses” (Cappel, Mary Lou; Susan Leifer Mathieu).
Allowing yourself to be vulnerable can be the most frightening thing anyone can do, however being able to have the capacity to be vulnerable means you can release fear, judgement, anxiety, stress and pain.
This is where we work together to release your limiting beliefs that are holding you back and move you through a process to give you more joy, happiness and fulfillment.
