Stress counselling with Ikigai

Finding balance and harmony - The Ikigai method for stress counselling

Stress is a common phenomenon in our daily lives, and it can have various causes, ranging from work-related pressures to personal challenges. But what if I told you that there is a method that revolves around finding balance and harmony, not only to reduce stress, but also to live a fulfilled and meaningful life?

So what is stress anyway?

Before we explore the Ikigai Method, it is important to understand what stress actually is. For that, see the accompanying video. Actually, while a little stress on occasion is not so bad, chronic stress can have very serious consequences. Stress is often considered a reaction of the body to external pressure or tension. It can manifest in different forms, such as anxiety, fatigue, or even physical symptoms such as headaches, neck pain,back pain or built-up muscle tension. Essentially, chronic stress is a sign of a lack of balance in our lives.

The Ikigai method - In search of balance and harmony

The word "Ikigai" comes from Japanese and means "a reason to exist" or "a reason to rise". This method revolves around finding deeper meaning and purpose in our lives, leading to a sense of balance and harmony. The concept of Ikigai contains a mix of elements, which are important for a sustainable healthy balance. Click here for more information.

The importance of balance

By exploring and balancing these different elements, we can strive for a life that is fulfilling and reduces stress. When we find our Ikigai, we experience a sense of purpose and direction, allowing us to better cope with the challenges life presents us.It is important to note that balance does not mean that everything has to be perfectly balanced in every moment. It is about consciously striving to balance these elements, knowing that this is an ongoing process that takes time and dedication.


The Ikigai Method offers a valuable framework for dealing with stress by striving for balance and harmony in our lives. If you are curious, please contact us for a no-obligation consultation.
