Stress Management

Stress Management

Stress affects everyone and yet many of us fail to make the connection between their own stress levels and the on-set of stress-related health problems such as high blood pressure, reduced immune system, mood disorders and chronic pain.

We tend to view stress as either something that should be ignored – in the hope that it will “sort itself out” and go away – or as a part of life that is outside of our own control.

The Aim of Stress Management:

To enable clients to:

  • Identify the sources of their stress.
  • Learn how to eliminate, avoid or reduce stress whenever possible;
  • Re-think ways of dealing with unavoidable stress;
  • Cope with stress that cannot be “re-thought”.
  • Understand how relaxation, correct breathing, visualisation, mindfulness and many other support mechanisms can be integrated into daily life.

Benefits to the client:

  • Understanding the potential health risks associated with living a stressful life.
  • –     Physical effects.
  • –     Mental/emotional effects.
  • An improved ability to identify personal causes of stress.
  • Recognising the presence of stress.
  • The ability to make positive changes towards the reduction of stress.
  • Increase in personal happiness.
  • Skills enabling him to properly relax the mind and body and thus reap the benefits associated with regular, deep relaxation.

Overall Objectives of Stress Management:

 By the end of their sessions/workshop/course, clients will be able to:

  • Recognise when they are stressed and understand the importance of dealing with that stress.
  • More effectively manage stressful situations with improved confidence.
  • Develop lifelong habits and strategies for avoiding stress.
