Stress Resources


Welcome to the Hope Street Centre's resource pages for stress. Here you will find links to articles, files to download and other useful information on dealing with stress.

I am noticing that an increasing number of clients are attending The Hope Street Centre with problems caused by stress.  Much of the stress is work-related, although money problems, relationships, illness and trauma also play a part.  It is particularly worrying that many young people are stressed, as they juggle the demands of long working hours, commuting, bringing up a family and paying bills that are forever increasing.

Fortunately it is possible to combat stress relatively easily if it is recognised before serious symptoms of burnout develop. Typical signs  include irritability, impatience, outbursts of emotion, panic attacks, making uncharacteristic mistakes, illness, sleep disturbances. Some suggestions for tackling stress are presented  in the links alongside this article.

In addition to the information on these pages we have a newsletter "Overcoming stress in the workplace" available for download in PDF format. If you represent a business or organisation in our area we have a 30-minute presentation on stress in the workplace which we can present to help raise awareness.
