April is stress awareness month. Stress is becoming more and more part of our everyday—we cannot even think of daily life without stress anymore—and as such is also either cause or accompanying many mental health and other psychological issues people bring into psychotherapy and counselling. However, a closer look at the internet search statistics, reveals astonishing figures related to stress, anxiety and depression, which are the top three mental health-related searches in the UK.
Mental health statistics for UK in 2016 in terms of search results reveals that anxiety and depression are still the leading mental health conditions people search for. Other mental health topics that dominate are stress, bipolar, bereavement, panic attacks, trauma, burnout, suicide, addiction and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
Are you interested in personal growth and brave enough to do something about it? I will be starting a new Burnout and Stress Therapy Group in October 2016.
This will be a personal development and therapy group dedicated to burnout and work-life matters. It will also involve addressing self-esteem, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, workaholic issues, and general loss of will and purpose.
