Aims and objectives

The aim of the training is to enable you to understand stress and how you personally react to it. The primary aim of the course is to put you in control of your stress response.

In order to be able to control your personal reaction you must first be mindful of it and then be able to “feel” that you can control it. That is the purpose of the MP3 file that each person will receive at the end of the course. The course also comes with a 28 page workbook.

Who should attend

As a busy person you understand the demands of the real world. The increasing demands placed on us personally and professionally affect our health and our business. What makes some people focus and perform better under pressure while others struggle? The answer is Resilience. This does not mean being hard. Resilience is a measure of your subconscious flexibility and also what practical and psychological coping mechanisms you have access to.

This unique practical training experience will transfer that knowledge to you so you can perform to your full ability each day equipped with the tools and techniques to reduce stress. I promise you will never forget the content from this day. That’s a big promise.
