Stress Reduction

Stress is not just a psychological condition. Stress can affect your body and your mind (thought patterns, learning, memory, and feelings), and as a result, your behavior. Stress left unchecked can also contribute to many health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, cancer, and diabetes.

Dr. Quratulain Zaidi can help you learn and recognise common stressors and keep symptoms in check – giving you a jump on managing them.

Being stress free is a choice. There’s going to be stress in life, but it’s up to us to how much head space we allocate to it.

Recent research using brain scans shows when people are stressed, the part of the brain responsible for the “FIGHT OR FLIGHT” response — the amygdala — goes into a primitive survival mode (Siegel, D. 2010).

In this high-alert state, instead of being able to cope with more activity, the brain actually starts shutting down. Productivity, creativity, innovation, emotional intelligence when dealing with others and flexibility of thinking all decrease (Baldwin M et al, 2010; Arnsten, 2009).

Several studies confirm that stress reduction techniques based on CBT and Mindfulness can decrease the primitive survival response of fight and flight and lower the level of stress hormone cortisol. This in turn evokes calming response to promote a more productive state (Tang et al, 2008).
