The 6-week course in Stress Control will help you to understand stress, how it can affect you and how to control it. Each week you will learn new Stress Control skills and will learn how to fit these into your own personal Stress Control toolkit.


The six sessions are:

  • Learning about stress
  • Controlling your body
  • Controlling your thoughts
  • Controlling your actions
  • Controlling panic and sleep problems
  • Boosting wellbeing and looking to the future

Each student on the course receives a free Stress Control manual, containing course information, home activities and an audio CD of various mindfulness and relaxation activities. You can download the separate sections of the manual and access the audio here

Stress can affect all of us, whether we are young or old, male or female, rich or poor. Experiencing problems with stress doesn’t mean that we’re stupid, weak or mad. Stress is normal.
