Course Content

For best results, try to come to every session so you don’t miss any important information. If you do miss a session, you can catch up with what you’ve missed by coming to that session during the next course. Each session is roughly an hour and a half with a short break in the middle.

Manage your Stress: This session introduces common signs of stress and what things can make stress stick around.  This session will help you to understand your personal stress pattern.  You will be given some tips for tackling your stress that you can take on board straight away.

Manage your Body: How does stress and anxiety make your body react?  Lots of people have physical symptoms of stress and anxiety such as racing heart, churning stomach and lots of tension in the body.  This session will focus on the physical effects of stress and anxiety and ways to deal with it.   It also covers ways to really relax yourself.  You will be able to use these relaxation techniques at home with the help of a relaxation CD which is provided.
