Stress management CBT can transform how you live your life
Struggling to find ways of coping with the stress? Having difficulty switching off at the end of the day? Feeling easily stressed by minor things? These are all tell-tale signs that you may need stress counselling.
With our ‘enhanced’ Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and specialist Stress Counselling, we’ll help you identify the major causes of stress, show you how to reduce your stress reactions and, help you move toward a happier, healthier, more relaxed and fulfilling life.
How do you know if you need CBT stress counselling?
Are you feeling on edge and under pressure, having trouble sleeping, spending too much time procrastinating and, at times, feeling overwhelmed and not coping well with day to day life and demands? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider contacting us for our ‘enhanced’ CBT stress counselling.
The therapy we offer is ‘enhanced’ with the latest developments in stress research and therapy methods
A significant body of research over the last 50 years shows that excessive stress places a heavy toll on the body, mind and relationships. Chronic stress is a major risk factor for almost every serious physical health problem. For example, high blood pressure, chronic pain, heart disease, atherosclerosis, autoimmune problems, diabetes, digestive problems, and cancer.
Most of the stress experience is not just about what is happening to you, it is also about how you react to what is happening to you.
For some people their vulnerability and sensitivity to stress may be related to adverse childhood experiences, relational trauma and other traumatic or challenging events. This is something we can help you address too.
If you’re experiencing difficulty managing stress and experiencing any of the above stress-related health problems or issues, please get in touch.
How might stress counselling help?
The good news is that you can learn to better manage stress and your reactions to it.
We’ll show you a variety of effective methods and techniques to help you reduce stress and how to change certain aspects of your life to better manage your stress levels. We’ll help you feel calmer, improve your sleep, mood and health, worry less, and enjoy your life again, or maybe even for the first time. So let’s get started today.
Allow us to reassure you that professional help is at hand. We offer services that aim to reduce the fear and uncertainty about getting help. Arrange an initial consultation ‘taster’ session to discuss your needs, in privacy and comfort, to obtain a sense of how we help and for if this is the right direction for you.
And the day came when the risk (it took) to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
What our previous clients have said
I experienced severe trauma and developed a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder which meant I wasn’t coping well with day to day life. With CBT Therapy at Possibilities, I’ve made a number of positive changes. It was a struggle at times but my psychotherapist helped me feel safe and capable as we worked through things. I’m now back at work and my confidence is growing. I have a life again. I’m so glad I took that scary first step and called. If you’re feeling unsure, I highly recommend you call them too.
– JT, Aberdeenshire: Trauma Counselling Aberdeen.
I thought my life wasn’t worth living. My depression convinced me I was worthless and useless and my situation was hopeless. If you’re feeling something similar, go to Possibilities. They made an enormous difference to my life and they can do the same for you.
– AD, Aberdeen: Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy for Depression.
My relationship with my partner has vastly improved. We’re more able to communicate and we’re spending more time together and having fun! I can’t believe we were on the verge of separating when we contacted Possibilities as a last resort. I can’t thank them enough.
– SMcM, Aberdeenshire: Couples Counselling Aberdeen.
Possibilities was outstanding. I’ve overcome my anxiety and have the tools to keep it at bay should I need them in the future.

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it.
