What does the Course aim to achieve?
We are all having to learn to deal with increasing uncertainty.
Normally, our brains make decisions for the future based on our past experiences. When the future is uncertain our stress response system is activated with knock-on effects on our physical and mental health.
As human beings, we are not given the tools in school to manage stress nor are we taught about the ways our brain can scupper us when it comes to creating happiness. Without these tools, we can become anxious about what the future might hold, running through various scenarios and worrying about them; forgetting that there is only so much we can control and that we have more power than we think!

“I just want to say an enormous thank you for the session just now. It couldn’t have come at a better time for me as I was having a stressful start to the week, and the lockdown has been getting to me a bit. I’ve never been particularly good at stress self-awareness, but I feel much better equipped now. I found the content of the session and your lovely, friendly personality a real boost and exactly what I needed to help rationalise my anxiety.” itv NEWS
