The Stress Clinic of Hobart:

In psychophysiology stress results from enduring strain on a system. The plan was to have other clinics elsewhere but I realized I would become an administrator instead of being able to work with my clients.
The goal beneath the name is to achieve the opposite to what happens for someone experiencing  stress     –   to gain clear thinking –  good decisions –  carefully considered actions and ability to bounce back (resilience)
