Stress is one of the greatest challenges for people and may create difficulties that profoundly impact our connection with self and others.

Stress ‘managed’ can be a source of motivation, deep creativity and change. Stress ‘unmanaged’ can be catastrophic.

Chronic or overwhelming stress can disrupt every physiological function and contributes in significant ways to acute and chronic psychological and physical disorders including heart disease, autoimmune disorders, pain, depression, PTSI and addiction.

“Stress is the underlying cause of 60% of all human illness and disease.”– American Institute of Stress.
