Stress is a habit. We learn to react to situations, people, thoughts and expectations emotionally by becoming angry or upset. But, there is absolutely no law that states that you have to react that way. It is JUST A HABIT – and HABITS CAN BE CHANGED! The many techniques offered during sessions of Mindfulness Therapy teach you exactly how to undo the stress habit, allowing you to find more balance and happiness in your life.

Online Mindfulness Therapy for Stress
“Stress is not caused by external events themselves but by how we react to those events. Mindfulness teaches us how to change our internal habitual reactions to events so that we become less reactive and more responsive.” – The Path of Mindfulness Meditation, by Dr Peter Strong.
The effectiveness of mindfulness-based stress reduction is now universally accepted (see this article on WebMD).

The Placement Technique for Stress Management
There are many mindfulness-based techniques available to help you better manage stress, but one that I frequently teach in my Skype sessions of Online Therapy for Stress is called the Placement Technique. You can try this for yourself and see how it works for you.
The basic concept is that stress is closely related to the spatial orientation of stress thoughts in the mind. If there is insufficient space, then the stress becomes more intense. It’s rather like cramming several people into a small elevator. There is not enough space and they end up stepping on each other’s toes, or jabbing each other with their elbows, etc. The interesting point here is that if you take these very same people and place them in a large space, like the hotel lobby, the level of stress becomes greatly reduced. The only thing that is different is the size of the space containing the people.
It works very much the same when our minds become crowded with intrusive thoughts. The congestion is the primary factor that creates the stress rather than the thoughts themselves. So, to help reduce stress we practice increasing the psychological space that contains the thoughts.
1. Establish mindfulness, which simply means allow yourself to become aware of thoughts as the arise, but without reacting to them in any way.
2. Greet the thought and imagine picking up the thought with your hands and deliberately placing it further away from you. I like to imagine the thought as a black pebble and I place it on a beach, which is a powerful symbol of spaciousness.
3. Repeat the Greet and Place routine with each subsequent though that arises.
It is really quite remarkable how effective this simple mindfulness technique can be in reducing stress levels. I find it invaluable when managing the stress around giving presentations. Just Greet and Place, Greet and Place each and every stress/worry thought.
