Overcome Your Unhealthy Stress with Online Therapy

Category: Stress | Last updated: October 18th, 2018 | Reviewed and approved by:

Almost anything can cause stress in one's life. Work, family, kids, friends, school, finances and life-changing events are all stressors that can cause a person to experience elevated stress levels. Although stress is a normal part of your life, overwhelming stress can result in health issues (such as heart disease and gastrointestinal problems), relationship strain, problems at work and even an increased likelihood of depression or anxiety.

Common symptoms of too much stress in your life include problems concentrating, sleep disturbances and eating too little or too much, consistently feeling down or worried and physical problems like headache, rapid heartbeat, pain and aches in your body.

Fortunately, no matter what is happening in your life, you can learn skills to control your stress. Our stress management is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). With the help of CBT, you will learn to identify and challenge the automatic negative thoughts that, up to this point, have caused you to feel overwhelmed with stress. Your therapist will help you build skills to cope and adapt to life’s stressors. You will quickly learn how to better deal with problems and to stay in control of your emotions. The result? Not only will you feel better now, but you will also have these skills to use regardless of what happens in the future.

"I find many of these tips and tricks useful and easy. I am hoping they will be something that will continue to help me in the future. The worksheets have been interesting and reflective. The videos are informative and the program is easy to follow. I have had a couple good sessions with my therapist, I wish that the sessions were longer. 30 minutes just isn't long enough to get all the information out. However she has given me some useful tricks for my bag that I can use to help me in times of need."

"I've learned so much about myself and how I have been seeing the work in a way that had been quite harmful to my own self-esteem. Being able to see the other side now has allowed me the chance to work towards the person I have always felt I was meant to be. I'm grateful for everything that I've learned from Maggie and for all of the help!"

"This program has been beneficial to me.
The videos and worksheets have been especially helpful.

I chose not to have live chats with my therapist, but I feel her written notes and encouragement to me were beneficial. I moved along a lot faster in the program over the course of a full month than the feedback I’ve gotten. To be fair, I did sessions 6-8 all this weekend, so she hasn’t had time to review. I was through session 5 by last weekend and devoted a lot of time to one part of the session and would love to have had comments through as far as I’d completed. My latest feedback at the end of this final week of my month-long subscription is still just through session 2. At least that’s all I can find. I have implemented and practiced all the suggestions and and completed all of the exercises except for one that I skipped on purpose. My current subscription expires in two days.

I wish there were a search feature for therapist feedback and maybe there is, but I don’t see one. It can be a little tedious going back to each worksheet to find something I want to comment on if I didn’t do it initially. I don’t care for the Action Plan calendar. It’s not user-friendly. I’d like to copy one day’s actions to another day without having to start over. It’s too time consuming. Some days I do the same things. The Notes app on my phone is a lot easier to use and I can record what I need to do with with audio.

I’m on the list to work with a local CBT specialist in my area. So, I signed up for this program to do in the interim while I was waiting for my first appointment with her. I’m not going to continue with the online program, but I’m grateful for it and for what I’ve learned and for the fact that it helped me learn about new ways to challenge my thinking and re-channel it to more positive thoughts that bring about better behavior. I will continue to use what I’ve learned, particularly journaling and re-directing my thinking. I already do yoga and meditate. I recommend giving this program a try if you’re not sure. I’d do it again.
