Stress Control online
Stress is a normal reaction to the rapidly changing and uncertain times we are all living in at the moment. If you would like to learn some great ways, free-of-charge, to deal with common problems like anxiety, depression, panicky feelings, poor sleep and poor wellbeing, take a look at this video which will tell you more about ‘Stress Control’, a six-session cognitive-behavioural therapy class used extensively in the NHS (UK) and HSE (Ireland) and across the world: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDVRme6oWZT2hsCYaSergGw
As, in the current circumstances, you can’t come to ‘Stress Control’, we will come to you. We will live stream the 6 sessions over three weeks. Each 90-minute session will play twice a day (at 2pm and 8.30 pm) on Mondays and Thursdays beginning on the 13th April. The sessions will be taught by Dr Jim White, consultant clinical psychologist, who devised the class and who has taught most of the NHS (UK) and HSE (Ireland) trainers who would normally be running classes across the country. To take part:
1) Go to www.stresscontrol.org where you can learn more about the class on the homepage. You can get the dates of all the sessions too (we might run the classes again in May). Everything you need to successfully complete the class – the booklets, self-assessment, relaxation and mindfulness can be found in the ‘Free zone’. If you can, please read, and start working on, the booklets in the ‘Preparing for the course’ section before Session 1.
2) Click on the YouTube link to access our YouTube channel where the classes will be available to view at the scheduled times.

3) The session will start exactly on time, so do make sure you are there from the start. There will be a 10-minute break in the middle.
4) Each session is one piece of the jigsaw. By watching all of them, the jigsaw will form, and the big picture can emerge. This is cognitive-behavioural therapy so it is crucial you practice the skills we will teach you between sessions
