Role Of The Certified Stress Management Consultant

Stress is a universal feeling.  It plagues humanity on all levels, whether at home, work or play.  This is why it is critical to be able to cope and manage one’s stress.  Unfortunately many cannot accomplish this task on their own and require outside assistance.   This is where the Certified Stress Management Consultant enters the scene.

The role of this certified professional is to help and enable people to better cope with stress through a variety of strategies and counseling techniques.  Some of these techniques are preventative while others are proactive, but all aim at one goal; stress reduction. The need for qualified, certified stress management consultants and counselors is growing all of the time. So much of one’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health is adversely affected by the daily stressors of life.



Stress Management Consultants practice with the following goals:

  • To assess the client’s level of stress and assist the client in identifying major life stressors
  • To educate the client on the health risks of continued stress and the health effects of stress they currently are coping with
  • To educate the client on common stress management modalities that are available today
  • To work with the client to develop an individualized plan for managing their identified stressors
  • To incorporate holistic approaches to care modalities including those which act on body, mind and spirit
  • To implement mutually agreed upon stress management interventions for the client
  • To teach clients modalities that can be used for a life-time to manage stress more effectively
  • To assist the client in a comprehensive evaluation of effectiveness of the therapies used in the intervention treatment plan
  • To assist clients in developing healthy life styles which may be stress preventative
  • To teach clients how to better organize time
  • To utilize and teach the client meditative techniques that may help reduce their stress
  • To work with groups undergoing similar stressors
  • To work with the client’s family as needed and with permission to help the client achieve stronger stress coping mechanisms
  • To refer clients, as needed, to proper mental health care services and practitioners
  • To conduct research and contribute to the ever-growing body of knowledge related to the effects of stress and the treatment of stress

To be current in the literature regarding stress management interventions

The Stress Management Consultant in these ways becomes an important life coach to his or her client.  Yet, the services of a Stress Management Consultant go well beyond merely helping individuals but can also be applied to larger scales
