6 Ways to Support Someone who is Stressed

This week I’m sharing my top 6 ways to support someone who is stressed. I’m often asked, how do I get someone to see they’re stressed? What can I do to help them? I’m sharing the reason why other people often notice stress levels before you do.

This week I’m sharing my top 6 ways to support someone who is stressed.

I’m often asked, how do I get someone to see they’re stressed?

What can I do to help them?

I’m sharing

  • The reason why other people often notice stress levels before you do
  • The differences between men and women when they’re stressed
  • 6 key ways to support someone who is stressed but saying they’re ‘fine’ or just busy

In my private coaching (and hypnotherapy) I get wives contacting me all the time saying my hubby needs help, my hubby needs to see you. The thing is that we can only help people who want help themselves – or who SEE that they are stressed.

Listen in for information about how stress builds up over time and my real life example with the reasons why we don’t always see stress building in ourselves.

Maybe you’ve already tried to persuade them to do traditional things like take a holiday, let someone else do that work, switch off early – or even at a regular time.

So what can you do instead? 

Listen in for the 6 ways to support someone who is stressed

  1. Recognise
  2. Be Available
  3. Listen
  4. Normalise
  5. Encourage Activities
  6. Have Fun

Each of these ways to support someone when they’re stressed will increase the soothing, feel good chemicals and ensure that these people know that you’re there for them.

Give it a go and let me know how you get on or if you have any questions!
