Stress is not always a bad thing, it’s only when you experience too much of it and for longer periods that it can start to have a negative impact on your life.
Here at LionHeart, we understand that there are many factors which can contribute to an increase in your stress levels and the potential for this to lead to further serious mental and physical health problems.

Support is tailored for each person, and can include any of the following:
- Someone to talk to regularly and confidentially
- Advice and resources to help on a variety of issues relating to stress
- Counselling from one of our qualified counsellors

Signs that you are stressed
Modern life can be tough. The pressures that life brings, like financial problems, health and wellbeing, or work-related issues, can all lead to feelings of stress.
Feeling that you cannot cope can contribute to physical problems like insomnia, lack of appetite, anxiety, headaches, or having low self esteem.
When you are under stress your body releases stress hormones, often called the “fight or flight” response. If handled properly, once the pressure is over, your body often returns to normal, but being under constant pressure can lead to further health problems.
