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.

"It gives me an opportunity to seek help daily rather than waiting for my next appointment with an in person therapist."

"Well, online-therapy.com was able to help me identify the fact that I have been dealing with thought traps sixty-seven percent into the program. The two main thought traps are catastrophic thinking and extreme thinking. The sad thing is that the thinking is relevant to reality. This is why I documented everything. This is why I dialogue everything. This is why I do so via online GPS coordinates attached to smart devices, audio recordings, video surveillance, and research on those who have been wrapped up with derogatory records online.

I am not the same anymore because life is not the same anymore. This world we live in is not like the way I remember during my childhood innocence. It's changed drastically and I have experienced corruption. I experienced trauma and severe degrees of stress in the midst of the corruption. In matter of fact, I was scoring myself out with the Holmes and RaHe Social Readjustment Scale. I was scoring over 700 consistently for a prolonged period of time. Now isn't that alarming?!

Maybe this will all change by moving into the country. Maybe than I can focus on thinking about the birds and the bees in the pine trees. The many seas that this land divides and a garden to provide. Maybe than I will not have to worry about the mafia attempting to conquer and divide. Maybe I'll be able to focus on skinning a deer hide.

"I really like the format of this program, because I can do my therapy at home in the evenings. I was skeptical at first, but I was in a really bad place in life, and was desperate to try something. I have been in "talk-therapy" in the past with a psychologist or social worker, but this is really different.

The worksheets have been helpful in sorting out my thoughts, and figuring out how to actually make changes in my life, instead of just talking about it. My therapist, Maggie, has been very helpful by helping me realize that if I don't have a plan and take active steps to feel better, then things will just stay the same. Then, ultimately I will just continue down the same path and remain unhappy.

She challenges me by asking tough questions, which helps me see things from a different perspective. I feel encouraged that if I stick with the program, I can break my negative patterns, and live a more balanced life. I have hope that I can use my new skills to repair the damaged relationships in my life. I can learn to reach out to people.

"I stayed with this programme for 10 months and I can highly recommend this form of therapy. The fact that you can work when you want, reread the comments or chats until your really understand gives this an enormous advantage over classic face to face therapy where you can easily forget all of what was said.
Maggie, my therapist, gave me so much help and hope over the past ten months. I will always be grateful to her for that. She helped me out of a black hole. I have been copying out some of the stuff I have written over the months and I can hardly believe the difference. It helps me remember how I was, but I have certainly changed, I can see that. It's wonderful !!

"I'm new to this website but so far I've had positive experiences. At the beginning you fill out a lot of (optional) information about yourself so that the therapist can personalise your therapy. The therapist usually responds within a few hours except on weekends and probably faster in different time zones (I'm in Australia). I don't really have any complaints so far apart from the forum being inactive and that there's no forum for eating disorders. I feel like the inactivity on the forum could be easily solved if the website was more popular so I hope more people try online therapy!"
