No one is calm all the time. Nor should we be; a touch of fear and adrenaline can be useful and helps us to perform in tight situations. However, many of us struggle in our jobs with excessive stress, anxiety and burnout. Indeed, stress and mental ill health costs the UK economy upwards of £30 billion a year.

In this two-hour session, we will:

• Consider why experiencing change can be so difficult

• Learn to cope with challenges and setbacks without anxiety, panic or despair

• Create a toolbox of resources to use when times get tough and learn how to develop new, more useful coping strategies

• Explore how we might take a new perspective on difficult events


"A totally new way of dealing with situations and people to manage my emotions"

"Very reflective and thought provoking, helping me to understand one’s fears and where they are coming from"

"I learned the difference between anger and anxiety, balancing pessimism and optimism, and managing unrealistic assumptions"

"Nothing is so aggravating as calmness"

Oscar Wilde
