Building personal resilience and beating stress

(Former name: Stress management and resilience)

Course summary

In these busy times, we all need to stay focussed, in a positive frame of mind, and highly productive to maintain an ‘edge’ over our competitors. Good health, work life balance, and wellbeing are key to achieving this.

Our one-day Stress management programme will enable delegates to recognise the symptoms of stress as well as the effects of stress on the body and mind. We’ll complete a stress audit, examine the mind body connection and how you can employ effective strategies to ensure your wellbeing and reduce stress. Throughout the day you will identify your personal stressors and what you can do to maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle. You will have the opportunity to learn about the latest research from the field of psychology, neuroscience and contemplative practice and then practice tested strategies from these disciplines.

“I've now learnt to use mindfulness to use as a tool. The course was helpful and I learnt a lot about time management, to look at my personal values and how to take myself out of a situation.”
“I loved the venue and I loved the course and will recommend to all of my colleagues back at work. ”
