Stress through work
Are you Struggling with Stress?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is the primary treatment for work-related stress and all forms of anxiety. We have a highly trained and experienced team of CBT therapists in London to help overcome these difficulties. Our locations in the City of London, Harley Street and Victoria, make us easily accessible across central London. All therapists are accredited by the British Association of Cognitive and Behavioural Psychotherapies, the gold standard for CBT standards and accreditation in the UK.
What is Stress?
Stress is what we feel when we are under pressure. It is a completely normal response which we all experience from time to time and is our body’s reaction to feeling under threat; the flight or fight response. It is not dangerous. In fact, a certain amount of pressure can be quite helpful and motivating. If we have too much pressure for too long, we run the risk of a more severe stress reaction. This can be quite unpleasant in the short term, but also if the stress continues and is not managed, can be really bad for our health.

What you need to know
We require proactive and reactive approaches - bookending mental health strategies with our employee engagement activities, to prevent these issues arising, and providing evidence-based intervention to treat with long-term solutions. Here you can see employee outcome results for GPs with mental health problems or police officers with PTSD.
A mental health strategy has to overlook references to fruit and mindfulness (not to be confused with MBCT) if it is evidence-based.
An evidence-based strategy along with prevention and treatment requires a detection activity. If treatment is not clinically indicated then an exit pathway for general support is required (e.g. social support, HR interventions, Occupational Health for physical illness interventions). Punctuated throughout the wellbeing strategy are the activities that promote mental health needs – helping to optimise performance, reduce stigma, develop awareness, address professional themes, and signal buy-in from the top.
