Chances are there’s a lot that’s good about your life. And sometimes you can probably even feel how good it is.
At other times though, you don’t know what you feel — no time for that, no time to stop. Or maybe you’re aware of a simmering agitation that coats your days and hampers your sleep.
You don’t like to feel out of control, at the mercy of your job, your moods, the pace of life or someone else’s agenda.
These days we roll all of this into one and call it stress. How often do you say, or hear someone say, “oh I’m just stressed.” We are so dismissive of it.
But it’s real and it’s harmful. Stress impacts your health, your mood, your relationships. And in a rare, quiet and reflective moment you know you want out…you want to feel less stressed and more in control.
Enough is Enough
You get glimpses of feeling like you’re at the end of your tether. But you turn away understandably. Nobody wants that taste of helplessness. Much easier to have another glass of wine or check your emails again instead. And so the story continues.
But there is another way, and no, it doesn’t require some crazy, wholesale life change.
There is plenty you can do to get relief, to feel better and more in control.

I’m Jacqueline Stone, founder of Wise Stress Mastery. I’m a counsellor and therapist, trainer and facilitator. I specialise in stress. I’ve dealt with significant stress in my life, as have we all. While I am far better equipped these days to deal with stress, my expertise in the field is especially drawn from my work over the past 12 years in private practice (Jacqueline Stone & Associates).
My clients and participants have taught me so much about ordinary people’s struggles, and about daring to get help in their bid for better living. I always feel privileged when they help me to help them overcome challenges, get a handle on stress and improve their lives.
I’ve witnessed a huge variety of struggles and triumphs but there are universal themes and lessons and it’s these that I’m on a mission to share on this site.
I’ve heard several recurring descriptions of where people find themselves when stress has got the better of them. Which of these can you relate to?
- numb to the point of flatlining
- stuck on a passenger train
- constant drama
- an impostor in my own life
- victim of my own emotions that seem to come from nowhere
Whether it is one of these or your own version, you want to get back in the driver’s seat and steer life forward on your own terms. Wise Stress Mastery is where I get to share with you all that I’ve learned from watching people do just that.
