Stress Management Test Results
If you answered "Yes" in at least one of the question, stress might be affecting you in a negative way. The more answers that you chose "Yes", the more it might be affecting you.
If you answered "Maybe" in any of the questions, the way you are processing stress may be having some negative impact on you.
It is difficult to accept that we might be having a hard time manage the stress we go though. We were taught to be cold hearted, tough, and brave, anything different might not be accepted by society.
We normally don't have the correct tools to manage stressful situations. We might feel that it is weak, to have trouble dealing with stress. That is what we have learnt from small kids and during life...
The first ones that should have taught us to deal with stress where our parents, and many times they didn't have the tools either.
Most people think they know how to deal with high stressful situations, but in reality, it is affecting them in a negative way and they don't even realize. They have found ways to "cover" the problem/pain but covering isn't a positive solution.
Having eating disorders, sleeping problems, addictions, finding yourself trying to change the past, can be some of the signs and symptoms.
When we talk about addictions, we are not only talking about alcohol or drugs. People think that addicts are the people that consume those.
Sorry to be the one to break it to you, but anything we do to numb the pain, can be an addiction. If you are sad, what do you do? Drink a beer, watch TV, eat, work, try to earn more money, use the cellphone to see how many likes you have, etc, etc.
We all have our addictions, we need to identify them so as to start working on changing them.
With the Stress Management Programs we offer, we teach tools to be able to deal better with high stressful situations, and prevent them from affecting you in a negative way.
Don't wait till is too late...

What people are saying about our work:
Comments by Alan Harmon, Battallion Chief at Livonia Fire and Rescue in Michigan:
Excellent and needed. Tommy has great insite and knowledge on the subject. Finally someone is addressing the problem before PTSD becomes a reality.
Just didn't my first session with Tommy. Great insight and he gave me some fantastic exercises to help me move forward. I highly recommend talking with this man.
Comments by Dr. Abramor, intensive care specialist:
I found this was excellent. The way it was offered by Tommy, and all the tools that I was able to take with me.
All of us that work in Urban or Wilderness emergency care, have gone through high stressful situations, but nobody has taught us before how to deal with them.
I recommend this 100%, it offers great tools to take care of ourselves and others.
Comments by Dr Rogé, neonatal intensive care and doctor at Aconcagua Base camp:
Excellent. Not only did it help me learn more tools to deal with stress. It was a walk through the different phases and choices I took to do this type of work that I love so much, but this work also crosses tedium and pain very closely. It reminded me of the most intimate motives for which I chose my path and many times I lost sight of it because of different circumstances. Taken with an impeccable psychological professionalism of someone like Tommy who works in a similar line of work, he understands it and lives it as he transmits it. I have read about Stress Management and PTSD prevention, but Tommy is excellent, since he talks about his own experiences.
It was very intense. It was important to remove many barriers that one tends to have, being an intense care doctor and a doctor in Aconcagua, to deepen and rediscover why I decided this work initially and for pure vocation. And from there take the tools that we have learnt. THANK YOU ! It was a walk through pain and death and ended up dusting the cute part of this, often covered by routine. THANKS
Comments by Miluzka Liz, Mountain Guide:
I had the pleasure of participating of the stress management and post-traumatic stress prevention seminar which I arrived with total ignorance and enthusiasm to learn.
It was excellent. The work on prevention is not something we see often in emergency care or in any other trade, however I consider it is very important.
The approach on this was very simple, genuine and profound.
The information and tools shared to us are also applicable to everyday life. I have never had the chance to be in such a high quality training about this subject.
I warmly thank Tommy for his willingness to share this, and for his professionalism.
Comments by Mauro Cerva, Lifeguard:
I want to thank Tommy Walker for this. The foundations of the stress management and prevention of post-traumatic stress allow us to move forward both in our beautiful profession and in our lives. I hope to transmit the human warmth and professionalism that you showed me.
Once again, thank you very much for teaching me your knowledge. I hope to see you again.
Comments by Sebastián Barrientos, Police and Aconcagua Rescue personnel:
The training was very useful, it gives you another perspective, it offers tools to learn how to deal with different stressful situations. It opens your mind. Thanks.
Comments by Agustina:
During the WFR course, we were about to start a rescue simulation. I got into my gear, put my helmet and headlamp. A partner illuminated my face with his headlamp (and I do not remember anything until I saw myself crying, hyperventilated, with Tommy holding my hand and asking me to hug myself, to hug my inner child Agustina that was crying, to give her support. When he told me that "It was not my fault", I cried more ... but I managed to breathe.
My classmates who were part of that situation, put into practice all parts of the training, I will not forget Julian who never let go of my head.
It's scary, it's shameful, but liberating. After that situation, I had a total of 33 panic attacks. Between the 17th and 25th, I started therapy, it is nice to know the root of conflicts and be aware.
Concluding: At that moment, been able to connect with my inner child made a big difference, and a healthier and more conscious alternative to connect with my emotions, of which I had spoken little until then.
A traumatic memory from the past had come out, I could feel the pain, but I was carefully guided by Tommy. This allowed me to flourish from that process like a Lotus, from misery, and it was rewarding to forgive, forgive me and heal the woman I am today. I am very grateful to those who were part of the experience, intense but loving.
