Stress Management

Stress Management

Stress management refers to the wide spectrum of techniques, coaching, training  and psychotherapies aimed at controlling a person's levels of stress, especially chronic stress, usually for the purpose of improving everyday functioning. To demonstrate that your business is committed to an environment which promotes good mental wellbeing which is stimulating, challenging and enriching and where there is a balance between personal and organisational needs we have developed a training programme introducing the concept of self-awareness, managing pressure and preventing stress related ill health. Aimed at individuals at all levels, it is a constructive and positive approach to the life + work + health = balance model.

Mindfulness

Using mindfulness to manage stress. It can be easy to rush through life without stopping to notice much. Paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you – can improve your mental wellbeing. Some people call this awareness "mindfulness". Mindfulness can help us enjoy life more and understand ourselves better. You can take steps to develop it in your own life. Mindfulness meditation involves sitting silently and paying attention to thoughts, sounds, and the sensations of breathing or parts of the body, bringing your attention back whenever the mind starts to wander. We use this type of mediation practice to help people manage stress and anxiety and we provide workshops and taster sessions to introduce you to the world of mindfulness mediation.
