Stress Less, which launched in 1997 and offers 12,000 new users each week more than 1,300 products to help alleviate stress, introduces two unique features: online counseling and an online anxiety treatment program.

The introduction of these two services is the result of research gathered via the Stress Less`s online stress assessment survey says founder and president Al Kitchen. "Hundreds of people complete our stress assessment survey each week, he says "By extending counseling to the Internet, we can reach more people with the support and help that they need and better incorporate treatment into their everyday lives." The online counseling program offers real-time, professional help from licensed psychologists, counselors, dieticians and exercise physiologists. With e-counseling, users can choose from a list of counselors by specialty, book an appointment online and choose one of four options for their session: telephone, computer/audio, computer video, or telephone/computer. Stress management techniques may involve cognitive-behavioral approaches, relaxation, exercise, diet and nutrition and/or medication. Each of these areas is covered in detail on the Stress Less site and a number of downloadable stress management programs are offered.
