Regain your life balance
With the pace of day-to-day life ever increasing, we discover how Holistic Health can help you manage stress and learn to relax.
Life, at times, can be overwhelming, and despite our best efforts, stress can build up and cause a wide range of physical and emotional difficulties, from anxiety and depression to sleep problems and relationship issues.
“Being able to take a step back and put things in perspective gives you the opportunity to re-evaluate your life…”
Recognising that life’s challenges can be tough, Redruth-based Holistic Health is offering a range of stress management courses and therapies, including advice on lifestyle and wellbeing choices. The business is the brainchild of Stress Management and Life Skills consultant Kate King, who has worked as a registered holistic health practitioner in the NHS for over 15 years. Now, Kate wants to offer these services to the wider community.
“As a working mum of two young boys, I completely understand the difficulty of trying to juggle work, family and the challenges that life throws at us. It’s easy to often feel like we are losing the plot. Looking after yourself is something that sometimes needs practice.”
Combining her extensive knowledge, skills and experience within physical and mental health services, Kate offers a range of stress-management therapies on an individual, group and corporate basis, helping to improve awareness of stress-related physical and mental health conditions, as well as promoting wellbeing and relaxation.
“Being able to take a step back and put things in perspective gives you the opportunity to re-evaluate your life,” adds Kate, who is following her own advice after setting up her business with the help from the Outset Cornwall business start-up programme.
With work-related stress on the rise and young people facing increasing pressure to perform well, Holistic Health also works with organisations and staff as well as colleges and universities, providing tailored group skills and information sessions.
“Learning new skills can help manage the stress of daily life,” explains Kate. “Less stress makes you happier, healthier and more refreshed, and helps you regain your life balance.”
