Courses are restricted to a small number of participants and presented in a relaxed format, with no essays to write or note taking required. The Self-Care Well-being and Resilience course is taught in a lecture style setting (and is not group therapy); as such they contain no discussion of personal problems. This allows people who feel uncomfortable talking in front of others to attend without any concerns.
Each person receives an 85 page A5 manual and set of four mp’3 at the end of the course, containing all the relevant notes needed to refer back to whenever required. All specially developed to reinforce and build upon the techniques taught during the course itself.
Self-Care & Resilience Course Is over two consecutive days:
Day one Stress-Wise 9.30 am – 4.30 pm
The purpose of a stress response (Fight or Flight) is to give us more energy as and when required. This energy can be used to a positive effect in helping us to meet deadlines and deal with life’s problems easily and calmly.
So why do we think of stress as a problem? When we say that someone is suffering from stress what we mean is that they are under extra and excessive stress. Too many demands, or too few, are being made and we feel unable to cope.

The knowledge, advice, and resources a mentor shares will depend on the format and goals of a specific mentoring relationship. A mentor may share with a mentee information about his or her own career path, as well as provide guidance, motivation, emotional support, and role modelling.
Sometimes the term “counselling” is used to refer to talking therapies in general. Counselling is a talking therapy that involves a trained or student counsellor, listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues.
Counselling can help you cope with:
- a mental health condition, such as stress, anxiety, depression
- a difficult life event, such as work-related stress issues
- difficult emotions – for example, low self-esteem or anger
What to expect from counselling
At your appointment, you will be one to one with your counsellor (confidential), and you’ll be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with the counsellor who will listen and support you without judging or criticising you.
