It's Complicated

Find a therapist that can help with Stress

Stress is a natural response to challenges in life, and therapy can offer a path to managing and reducing it. By learning new coping strategies and developing greater self-awareness, individuals can build resilience and overcome the negative effects of chronic stress.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based therapies provide practical techniques for identifying and changing negative thoughts and behaviors that contribute to stress. Therapy also offers a supportive environment to explore sources of stress, gain insight into effective strategies for coping, and achieve greater overall mental health and well-being.

With the help of therapy, individuals can transform their relationship with stress and cultivate a more positive outlook on life. By unlocking their potential for resilience and growth, they can thrive in the face of challenges and achieve their full potential.

About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.

“The body has its own non-conceptual intelligence, so often overlooked or devalued in the face of conceptual intelligence. The body knows when it is hungry, when it needs to move, what it needs to thrive. It communicates wisdom that comes through feeling and present-moment experience. When we lose the body, we lose connections to truths
