Stress Management

Course Details

Any level of stress is not acceptable. This one-day stress management course gives the necessary tools and knowledge to provide a healthy and balanced work place

Most people work better under some pressure. It ensures that we meet deadline and get things done whilst remaining productive. Without pressure we can become bored and our minds wander to other things.

Problems arise when pressure tips over to become more than we can handle, in that we have more to do than we feel we have the time and resources needed to achieve it. That is not a good place to be mentally and it can trigger our ‘fight or flight’ mechanism. It can also affect health and well-being, relationships at work and at home, and can take us to a dark place that we do not want to be, where it is often a long journey back.

Knowing what causes stress and how to manage it is the key to a healthy work and life balance for those in your organisation.
