Stress Control Information

Stress control is a FREE 6 week course that will help you learn how to manage stress

We will teach you how to reduce common stress-related problems including: anxiety and worry, low mood, panic, poor sleep and loss of confidence. Stress Control combines stress management with Mindfulness and Positive Psychology strategies to boost wellbeing.

The course is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques. Each session will look at a different aspect of stress and link together to help you become your own therapist!

Stress Control is not a therapy group and you won’t be asked to talk in front of other people. This allows people who feel uncomfortable talking in front of others to attend without any concerns. Classes are supported by slideshow presentations, online hand-outs (paper copies available upon request), video, audio and relaxation and mindfulness tracks.

Sessions (usually weekly) last for 90 minutes with a 10 minute break.

Sessions cover:

Session 1: What Is Stress?

Session 2: Controlling Your Body

Session 3: Controlling Your Thoughts

Session 4: Controlling Your Actions

Session 5: Controlling Panic Feelings and Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

Session 6: Wellbeing and Controlling the Future
