What is stress?
We have about 70,000 thoughts every day. When we engage in thoughts that causes us anxiety, it is potentially stress-triggering. Stress is thus a reaction we get when we spend too much time and energy on worry and negative thoughts.

The stress coaching course
A stress coaching course consists of a maximum of 5 treatments. Most are stress free after 3 treatments. During the process, we monitor your condition and measure your stress levels, so that we are sure that we reach our goal. Traditionally, people with stress symptoms have 10-15 psychologist interviews before they feel they are on their feet again. Often accompanied by long sick leaves. The MINDStrain method is among other based on metacognitive principles and methods. The method has a documented effect and the vast majority will be stress-free after 3-5 treatments.
