Is stress coaching really a thing? Is there a niche in the coaching profession for stress coaches? Though coaching often deals with stress as part of a coaching session or program, it can be overlooked or under-stressed (pun intended).
Why You Should Consider Stress Coaching?
In a national Stress in America survey conducted by Harris Interactive for the American Psychological Association, 39% of Americans polled felt more stress this year than the previous year, and 44% felt that their stress had increased over the past five years. It was also reported that 53% of those polled reported receiving little or no support from their health care providers concerning stress reduction or management.
A study by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) showed that one in four employees viewed stress in the workplace as the number one stressor in life, and three in four employees feel that workers have more stress now than a generation ago. Whether because of work or relationships or just the complexities and hassles of life in general, people are feeling stressed.
Americans are feeling stressed and there is a need for professional help in reducing and managing stress. There is a need for outcomes when it comes to stress. There is a need for stress coaching.
