What is stress and how can you manage it in your life?
Stress is our bodies’ natural reaction to the difficulties that surround us. It helps us face the unexpected and adapt to changes, it is therefore an unavoidable part of life itself. However, when we’re in a constant state of alert, our body burns out and several symptoms appear: fatigue and loss of energy, lowered concentration and memory abilities, muscle ache and headaches, disruption of sleep and eating patterns, loss of libido, anxiety, irritation, depression, digestive problems, skin reactions.
Although stress is inevitable, it is possible to manage it in order to prevent its harmful consequences, to be in better health, to have a better quality of life and to improve your performance and efficiency. There isn’t one universal solution to manage stress, but a range of adaptation strategies, called “coping strategies”. Enriched by my own experience and inspired by positive psychology, I created the Stress Management Programme for you: a personalised and structured guidance to help you implement the best coping strategies for you for a more tranquil day-to-day.

WHAT TO EXPECT
The stress management guidance I offer allows you to understand your stress and to find and implement the right strategies for you: those that will allow you to better cope and to effectively deal with stressful situations, to be happier and to make the most of life. The Stress Management Programme includes a minimum of 10 face-to-face coaching sessions with me (either in my practice in Frankfurt or through Skype) and a follow up session that usually takes place 3 to 6 months after completing the programme. In order to take the most of the programme, I recommend a frequency of 2 to 4 individual sessions a month.

YOUR PERSONALISED PROGRAMME
Coping strategies are very individual and depend both on the situation and on our personality. But effective coping strategies all evolve from the 3 stress management pillars:
Only 5 Steps to follow
A pedagogical approach allows you to comprehend the physiological, emotional and psychological aspects of stress. You will learn to identify the stressful situations in your life and to discern your bodily, emotional and psychological responses when faced with these situations.
Through the means of different relaxation techniques, you will learn to manage stress at a physiological level. You will learn to control and then prevent strong emotional responses and the bodily manifestations that go with it.
Through the means of cognitive restructuring, you will learn to identify your thought patterns, to overcome those that are ill-adapted and to develop a more adapted way of thinking.
By optimising your verbal and non-verbal communication, you will learn to interact with others more efficiently. You will develop assertive behaviours to contend with many stressful situations, such as saying no, asking for something, giving and accepting a compliment, criticising, communicating with others or speaking to an audience.
The problem solving strategy is a structured approach which allows you to identify the origin of a problem and to create an action plan to solve it. Through the means of different tools, you will learn to define and rank your priorities, to be more organised and to manage your time more effectively.
