Stress Management

Stress is the feeling you get when the demands placed on you exceed what you are personally, socially or financially capable of dealing with.

Stress is becoming more and more obvious and can manifest itself in many different ways.  Anxiety, depression, panic attacks, burn out and social anxiety are the most obvious indicators, usually accompanied by feelings of fear, anger and exhaustion.

So whether your stress emerges as one of these illnesses or in an altogether different way, this workshop using powerful and effective skills and techniques, will help you, to be able to cope with challenges and enjoy life.

Key subjects covered:

  • Recognising how stress reduces our ability to live and work effectively with others and decreases our ability to make good decisions
  • Understanding stress itself, pinpointing the sources of stress in  life
  • Learning how to rapidly control and reduce any stressful feelings
  • Controlling and alleviating many of the demands faced that lead to stress by rational thinking and building defences against it
