Helping with Stress

Ref: C2525549

Are you dealing with anxiety and stress? Why not develop the skills to help you manage effectively at home or work. On this course you will have the opportunity to work with a group to explore the causes of stress, the effects on the body and practice solutions that work. For some people anxiety affects their daily lives, and they worry there is no answer. This course will provide strategies, and techniques to help you manage these fears and turn stress into relaxation. Why not come along to a calm environment to learn more about yourself and have fun along the way. The tutor is a specialist who has much to share, and to show you that whether at home, or at work, people use these well tried coping methods to great effect. These techniques can be used for yourself, other adults and children.
