Change your world today!

Think back to when you were a child…

Do you remember the first time you read a book that changed your life? Maybe it took you to a far away land. Maybe 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.

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.

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


Changing your world – One book at a time!

Stress Center Books is a division of The Stress Center, based in Kelowna, BC. It was founded by Dr. Calista and Vern Ward, a husband and wife counselling duo. They have extensive experience between the two of them, and their combined resume includes a decade as university educators, another decade as program coordinators for the Ministry of Child and Family Development,  and Medical Doctorate (Calista).

The two have brought these varied experiences together to create a different kind of counselling center. Clients of The Stress Center can meet with consultants for traditional sessions in person, and they can attend group sessions or one-on-one meetings. However, The Stress Center has also harnessed the power of technology to create a system of virtual support. Now clients also have the option to communicate with a psychotherapist via Skype, phone calls, email, or texting. In today’s hectic world, this is one more way for people to get the help they need in the most convenient way possible.

Stress Center Books is the most recent arm of The Stress Center, and seeks to provide current psychological and medical information to the general public, in a way that is accessible and relatable. The goal of Stress Center Books is to publish books that makes sense and changes the lives of their readers. Its first book is the Simple Stress Solution, by Dr. Calista and Vern Ward, with more on the way soon!
