Stress - Treatment
Can my doctor help?
If you are struggling to cope with stress you can speak to your GP. It can help to write down a list of things you’d like to discuss with your GP. This can be helpful if you are feeling anxious or worried. It could help you remember the questions that are important to you. If you have kept a stress diary you could take this with you.
The GP could offer self-help advice. They could suggest stress management classes or support groups in your area. They could refer you for counselling or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), or suggest medication.
