Stress Center Books: Change your world today!

Think back to when you were a child…

Center your thoughts. Do you remember the first time you read a book that changed your life? Maybe it took you to a far away land. Perhaps it was a land that didn’t exist. Maybe the book taught you something about yourself, or changed the way that you looked at the world.

Well, they still can.

At Stress Center Books, we believe that Knowledge is Power. That the way we think can and does change how we view the world. That we don’t have to be stuck in the same old patterns and struggles of life. We don’t have to stay in the stress-filled “rat race” of life.

There is another way.

Stress Center Books

At Stress Center Books, our team of authors are dedicated to putting the latest psychological and medical research in a way that you can understand. A way that will change how you view yourself, others, and the world around you. A partnership between The Stress Center and Okanagan Publishing House, we seek to enrich and inform our readers in the world of mental health.

So what are you waiting for? Knowledge is power. Change your world today!

Stress Center Books – About Us

Changing your world – One book at a time!

Stress Center Books is a division of The Stress Center.  It was founded in Kelowna BC by Dr. Calista and Vern Ward. The husband and wife therapist duo have extensive experience between them. Their combined resume includes a decade as university educators, another decade as program coordinators for the Ministry of Child and Family Development. In addition, both are highly educated and Calista has her Medical Doctorate.

Vern and Calista have brought these varied experiences together to create The Stress Center. The result is a unique mental health experience. Clients can meet with consultants for traditional sessions in person or online. As well,  and attend weekly group sessions. However, the therapists also work with corporate and government entities as stress consultants. They work with businesses to help create a more calm and productive workspace. The center has also harnessed the power of technology to create online systems for teaching and virtual support. The world we live in today is hectic. This is one more way for people to get the help they need in the most convenient way possible.
