Release the Pressure - Stress reduction workshop

17th June

Release the Pressure is a four part circular workshop designed by psychological professionals to help you reduce stress and build resilience

Release the Pressure - Stress reduction workshop

Are you worried about the effects of stress on your life and health? You are not alone, last year 74% of adults in the UK admitted to being so stressed at some point that they felt unable to cope.
Often stress is underplayed, there is no point thinking about the effects of stress as it seems there is little that can be done to remove it from our busy lives. Everyone gets stressed, so what is the problem? So, many people tend to carry on and largely ignore stress till it 'begins to feel normal'
Every now and then we hear about someone we know experiencing a 'burn out' or a breakdown. Should we worry about our own capacity?

Unfortunately, the line between healthy levels of stress and chronic stress is closer than we think.
So, what can we do? We would like to offer you the opportunity to learn some useful tools and techniques to really give you something to DO instead of worry.

What is Release the Pressure?
We created the Release the Pressure workshop to tackle personal stress and stress related ailments with both short and long-term solutions. It is solution focused, whilst offering important tools to help you build personal resilience to help you move forward.
It is conducted in a circular setting, no power point lectures, and is facilitated by Simon Centofanti, coaching psychologist.

The workshop contains:
* Opportunities for (monitored and mediated) open dialog between the group and facilitator relating to personal stress and stressors.
* Taught active listening techniques for co-participants to communicate affectively throughout and post workshop.
* Taught psychological interventions and activities that focus on stress, anxiety (rumination), building resilience, fortifying and increasing willpower, aiding with goal planning, motivational interviewing and self-care / compassion.
* Lessons on what stress is, what is good about stress and how it can go wrong.

Release the Pressure is a 4-part workshop, that operates once a fortnight. Each session is a very interactive 3 hours and encompasses all aspects of stress, whether it is borne from health, work, relationships, conflict and so on.

The workshop is broken up into 4 sessions. To be a part of the workshop, attendees must be present at the first session, however, they are not obligated to attend all of the remaining sessions.

Attendees can pay session by session, which is £35. Or alternatively, on the day of the first session, attendees have the option to extend their payment to £120 to include all the sessions.
