Living with stress and anxiety
Jul 07, 2021 Season 2 Episode 9
The Fire Fighters Charity

For many of us, the last year has brought with it increased feelings of stress and anxiety – so knowing how to identify these feelings and how to cope with them is hugely important. We’ll be discussing just some of those coping mechanisms in this week’s Shout!Podcast.

Psychological therapists Becca Harp and Izi Dragonetti begin by discussing the difference between stress – which often happens in response to an external factor and can be a short-term response - and anxiety, which may continue even after a stressful situation. Plus, they discuss what causes each and the key signs and symptoms.

Next, host Kim Robson talks to Louise Moody, who works in control at Bedfordshire Fire & Rescue Service and is the partner of a firefighter. She reveals how a battle with OCD in her teen years developed into depression and anxiety as an adult, before she finally reached out for support. 

Read Louise’s full story here.

Finally, Becca and Izi discuss different coping mechanisms you can try if you’re struggling with stress and anxiety – plus, where to find help if you need it.
