The Stress Control course
The Stress Control course helps people to understand how stress and associated problems such as low mood, anxiety, panic and sleep affect them. The aim of the course is to help turn you into your own therapist; you are the expert on you, but the course is here to guide you in improving your understanding and management of stress.
The course is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which looks at the connection between thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and behaviours to help people discover what may be maintaining their stress and learn ways to manage it more effectively.
The course is run weekly over six sessions for approximately 90 minutes with a break halfway through the session.
The six sessions:
- What is stress? The first steps
- Controlling your body
- Controlling your thoughts
- Controlling your actions
- Controlling panic feelings and medication
- Controlling your sleep, wellbeing and controlling your future
- Swansea YMCA, 1 The Kingsway, Swansea SA1 5JQ
- Room: Theatre
- Fri 16th August – 20th September 2019 10-11.30 am
You can turn up and register on the day of the course and bring a friend. Free course materials and relaxation CD will be available.
Stress Control is run as part of the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Health Board Living Life Well Programme.
