Stress can lead to all kinds of responses, mentally or physically. It can make us more depressed, angry, sad, unhealthy, tired, unable to sleep, the list goes on. If you are a teacher or stressed for any other reason, counselling could offer you a safe environment each week to help unload your stress, confidentially discussed the issues you are dealing with and maybe learn a few mindfulness techniques to get you through the working day.
