Our course can help you understand and overcome the effects of stress in your life
Stress Less workshops
Changes to our service due to coronavirus (COVID-19)
In light of the current situation, we've changed the way we provide our Stress Less Workshop course.
For the time being we will be providing each session of the Wellness course as a pre-recorded video.
Find out more below.
Our four week video course will cover different ways you can manage stress, and difficulties linked to stress such as anxiety, worry, low self-confidence, poor sleep and panic attacks
After each video session, you’ll be encouraged to go away and try the techniques learnt in your day to day life. At the end of the four weeks you’ll be much better prepared to handle stress, and the things that cause you stress.
There will be eight videos in total lasting approximately 20 – 30 mins. Each session will be made up of two videos which will be sent by email prior to the session.
You will also be given access to a Stress Less workbook and activity materials to follow and complete alongside and in between sessions.
Before being given access to the Stress Less videos you will need to attend an assessment with one of our practitioners to ensure this is the best treatment option for you at this time.
To arrange a Wellbeing Assessment please refer yourself to Talking Therapies
Alternatively you can take a look at our self-help guides if you want to know more about managing things like depression and stress.
We'll send your workbook by email, along with the link to the right video.
As well as our workshops, there’s others activities you can do to help you relax your mind and body.
Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR) exercises can help you become aware of your stress and how it affects your body.
Through the audio exercises, you can learn how to spot the early signs, and learn the skills to ease your stress.
We recommend trying the extended exercise first, and moving on to the brief exercise as you become more familiar and confident. We’ve found it can help if you play the two recordings in a quiet room away from distractions, where you can sit comfortably.
Please don’t do these exercises while driving.
You might need to practice the technique for a few weeks before you feel the benefits.
If you have a physical health issue, such as back problems, we advise you speak to your GP before you begin.
If you feel that you need further support, you can ask your GP to refer you to Talking Therapies. We’ll offer a Wellbeing Assessment, and offer the right therapy support to suit you.
