Anxiety and stress counselling is on the rise in Nova Scotia and that is quite common since we have just gone through a pandemic for starters.

SMB Counselling Group wants to let you know that anxiety and stress, not to mention PTSD, are feelings that can cause most people to worry to the point where it affects their day to day lives. It’s basically a feeling that won’t go away.

It affects everything in our lives including our thoughts, relationships, emotions, and actions. Anxiety and stress can become a serious mental health issue for individuals in Nova Scotia. It can affect us at work, school and socially.

What SMB Counselling tells their patients

SMB Online Counselling wants to tell not just their patients, but everyone who experiences anxiety at anytime in their lives that this can be quite normal at times in their life, especially when life at school or work gets very stressful. It’s not only normal for people to feel anxious, but it’s quite common to reach out for the health of a mental health therapist when it become bad enough and we find out selves desperately seeking the help of a professional counsellor.

Some situations like public speaking, teaching school, a job interview, or playing in a band are quite stressful. These are activities that are outside the norm for most people. It takes practice to feel comfortable in front of others. But, for some people just going outside their door is stressful, never mind public speaking! They may have to seek out individual counselling services if the problem doesn’t get resolved.
