Common responses to stress are often unworkable and costly, not only to organizations, but also to individuals, their families, and the wider community. Many individuals have tried to deal with stress by attending seminars or reading self-help books and have found little improvement. These workshops take a different approach to stress and anxiety. We explore innovative strategies including:
New ways to handle unhelpful thoughts and avoidant behaviors such as procrastination.
An effective and compassionate approach to feelings of frustration.
How to make daily decisions that bring greater vitality and productivity at home, in the workplace and beyond.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
ACT is a third wave cognitive behavioural therapy supported by a robust body of research. It is evidence-based for numerous client populations including people needing to make lifestyle changes due to major health conditions, people suffering from mood disorders, students struggling with procrastination, and workplace stress.
