Course Description

Description

Everything in this description is included in the first free video for those who prefer to watch and listen more than reading.

This course has been 100% rewritten for 2020. The videos and the downloadable handout have been rewritten and filmed to reflect the additional experience that I’ve gained working with hundreds of more people since I first released this course.

The only thing that remains the same is my commitment to provide you with honest and useful information, exercises, and recordings to help you to become a person who copes well with stress.

The course has a slight bias to stress at work as that is a common cause of stress for many people. All of the ideas and techniques are equally applicable to stress wherever it originates from.


The Gamble

One in four people will experience some form of mental illness in their lifetime.

1 in 4, so the odds are good right? That means that most people won’t.

You could look at it like that of course, or you could look at it another way. If you are in a room with 3 other people, one of you will go through some difficulties. Perhaps very bad stress, or anxiety, maybe depression or panic attacks, or perhaps something worse. Are you still feeling confident?

Of course, stress and mental illness are not the same things, but they are often related, and so taking care of your stress levels is also taking care of your mental wellbeing as a whole.

The good news is that for most people, stress is easily managed. This course will take you through the what, how, and why of looking after yourself.

I only wish that I’d had access to this before I was taken completely by surprise and became the 1 out of 4.


What this course isn’t.

This course is not simply a ‘how-to’ of the 10 best stress management techniques. If that is what you are looking for then you will find everything that you want on google, bing, or whatever your preferred search engine is.

Experience tells me that having too many techniques is counterproductive. If you are stressed, you do not need 100 more things to think about. You need 1 or 2 that work, quickly and consistently.

More than that, you need to become the kind of person who copes well with pressure.

Twenty-first-century living is highly pressurized and from that perspective, there are 2 kinds of people: Those who deal well with the pressure, and those who don’t.

In this course, I will share with you the best techniques that I know to help if you reduce your stress levels quickly. After that, what I want for you is that you become a person who handles pressure well. Most of us become stressed from time to time and to expect anything else just isn’t realistic.

The most effective people are those who recognise when stress is building and can let it go quickly. This course will teach you how to do both of those things.


How deep does this course go?

Stress is a highly personal thing, and the things that cause you stress will be very different from the things that cause me stress.


Because of that, the most effective stress-management programme will always be working 1-2-1 with a professional. For most people though, that is not necessary. By its very nature, this kind of course gives very general help and advice, but it is enough for most people.

The topics covered here are not meant to be in huge detail, rather just enough. Just enough to help without overwhelming you with things that you don’t need.

  • The aims of the course

  • To help you to measure and reduce your stress levels.

  • To help you to understand the role that lifestyle has on stress levels and how to live life more healthily

  • To understand and counteract the causes of stress

  • To inspire you to become a person who copes well with pressure and to make this a lifelong commitment


Why should you care?

  • People who manage stress well:

  • Perform better, both at work and in their hobbies

  • Have better relationships

  • Have less mood swings and so are more pleasant to be around

  • Have more fun and find life more fulfilling


In short – people who deal well with stress tend to have a better quality of life -surely that makes it worth taking notice of?

What you will get

As well as the video content you will get 2 valuable resources.

1- A comprehensive and downloadable handout. This contains everything that is included in the videos for those who prefer to read. In many cases, there is additional information too. All of the exercises from the videos are contained in the handout for your convenience.

2- Four downloadable audio recordings that help you to create the right mindset for creating a stress-free life. These are the same recordings that I would give you if we did a 1-2-1- programme together.

The recordings on their own would make a powerful stress-management programme. When coupled with what you learn throughout the rest of the course you have a complete solution for putting you back in control.

  • The 2-minute relaxation. A recording of one of the techniques covered during the course. One of the most powerful stress management tools that you have

  • Remembering how to relax. As you will learn during the programme, your body can literally forget how to relax. This recording will help you remember. Many people find that this recording on its own is extremely powerful and is all that they need. The other recordings in the series then take it to another level.

  • Letting go of negative thoughts

  • Moving on to better times


Why me?

Only you can answer that of course.

One of the key questions to be asking yourself is do I make you feel comfortable as your instructor? You have your preferred styles of learning and I have my style of presenting. We will work best together if those two are aligned. I hope that the intro videos give you some idea of who I am and what I’m about.


In terms of what qualifies me to talk about this, here is my mini CV.

  • My career spans 40 years covering all levels of business from apprentice to director

  • 10 years ago I suffered badly from stress which led to severe panic attacks which I lived with for more than 2 years

  • As a result of that, I quit my job and retrained as a stress-management-consultant and therapist and, more recently, as a mindset coach

  • I’ve worked with hundreds of people, 1-2-1 and in groups as part of company stress management programmes. I’ve helped people who have been mildly stressed, and those who have had the worst kinds of breakdown as well as pretty much everyone in between,

This course is about me sharing with you what I believe are the most important things that I’ve learned over those years.

Exercises to help you to understand where the stress points are in your life What stress is and how it affects us physically and mentally Why low levels of stress that continue for a long time are more damaging than experiencing hight stress levels for a short period of time. Why most people don’t notice that stress is building until it becomes a problem The signs and symptoms of stress and how to notice them How to measure and monitor your stress levels for a healthy lifestyle Powerful techniques to reduce acute stress quickly You will get 4 Audio downloads that will help you to learn how to relax, switch off mind chatter and build up resilience to stress. A comprehensive handout containing additional information as well all of the exercises from the course. Requirements There are no prerequisites for taking this course apart from an open mind and a willingness to experience new things. While not essential it would be useful for you to: Have access to a way to listen to mp3 recordings such as an mp3 player or smartphone Have headphones or ear buds to listen to these recordings Description Description Everything in this description is included in the first free video for those who prefer to watch and listen more than reading. This course has been 100% rewritten for 2020. The videos and the downloadable handout have been rewritten and filmed to reflect the additional experience that I’ve gained working with hundreds of more people since I first released this course. The only thing that remains the same is my commitment to provide you with honest and useful information, exercises, and recordings to help you to become a person who copes well with stress. The course has a slight bias to stress at work as that is a common cause of stress for many people. All of the ideas and techniques are equally applicable to stress wherever it originates from. The Gamble One in four people will experience some form of mental illness in their lifetime. 1 in 4, so the odds are good right? That means that most people won’t. You could look at it like that of course, or you could look at it another way. If you are in a room with 3 other people, one of you will go through some difficulties. Perhaps very bad stress, or anxiety, maybe depression or panic attacks, or perhaps something worse. Are you still feeling confident? Of course, stress and mental illness are not the same things, but they are often related, and so taking care of your stress levels is also taking care of your mental wellbeing as a whole. The good news is that for most people, stress is easily managed. This course will take you through the what, how, and why of looking after yourself. I only wish that I’d had access to this before I was taken completely by surprise and became the 1 out of 4. What this course isn’t. This course is not simply a ‘how-to’ of the 10 best stress management techniques. If that is what you are looking for then you will find everything that you want on google, bing, or whatever your preferred search engine is. Experience tells me that having too many techniques is counterproductive. If you are stressed, you do not need 100 more things to think about. You need 1 or 2 that work, quickly and consistently. More than that, you need to become the kind of person who copes well with pressure. Twenty-first-century living is highly pressurized and from that perspective, there are 2 kinds of people: Those who deal well with the pressure, and those who don’t. In this course, I will share with you the best techniques that I know to help if you reduce your stress levels quickly. After that, what I want for you is that you become a person who handles pressure well. Most of us become stressed from time to time and to expect anything else just isn’t realistic. The most effective people are those who recognise when stress is building and can let it go quickly. This course will teach you how to do both of those things. How deep does this course go? Stress is a highly personal thing, and the things that cause you stress will be very different from the things that cause me stress. Because of that, the most effective stress-management programme will always be working 1-2-1 with a professional. For most people though, that is not necessary. By its very nature, this kind of course gives very general help and advice, but it is enough for most people. The topics covered here are not meant to be in huge detail, rather just enough. Just enough to help without overwhelming you with things that you don’t need. The aims of the course To help you to measure and reduce your stress levels. To help you to understand the role that lifestyle has on stress levels and how to live life more healthily To understand and counteract the causes of stress To inspire you to become a person who copes well with pressure and to make this a lifelong commitment Why should you care? People who manage stress well: Perform better, both at work and in their hobbies Have better relationships Have less mood swings and so are more pleasant to be around Have more fun and find life more fulfilling In short – people who deal well with stress tend to have a better quality of life -surely that makes it worth taking notice of? What you will get As well as the video content you will get 2 valuable resources. 1- A comprehensive and downloadable handout. This contains everything that is included in the videos for those who prefer to read. In many cases, there is additional information too. All of the exercises from the videos are contained in the handout for your convenience. 2- Four downloadable audio recordings that help you to create the right mindset for creating a stress-free life. These are the same recordings that I would give you if we did a 1-2-1- programme together. The recordings on their own would make a powerful stress-management programme. When coupled with what you learn throughout the rest of the course you have a complete solution for putting you back in control. The 2-minute relaxation . A recording of one of the techniques covered during the course. One of the most powerful stress management tools that you have Remembering how to relax. As you will learn during the programme, your body can literally forget how to relax. This recording will help you remember. Many people find that this recording on its own is extremely powerful and is all that they need. The other recordings in the series then take it to another level. Letting go of negative thoughts Moving on to better times Why me? Only you can answer that of course. One of the key questions to be asking yourself is do I make you feel comfortable as your instructor? You have your preferred styles of learning and I have my style of presenting. We will work best together if those two are aligned. I hope that the intro videos give you some idea of who I am and what I’m about. In terms of what qualifies me to talk about this, here is my mini CV. My career spans 40 years covering all levels of business from apprentice to director 10 years ago I suffered badly from stress which led to severe panic attacks which I lived with for more than 2 years As a result of that, I quit my job and retrained as a stress-management-consultant and therapist and, more recently, as a mindset coach I’ve worked with hundreds of people, 1-2-1 and in groups as part of company stress management programmes. I’ve helped people who have been mildly stressed, and those who have had the worst kinds of breakdown as well as pretty much everyone in between, This course is about me sharing with you what I believe are the most important things that I’ve learned over those years.

Work wise, I consider myself to be a personal-development and mindset coach. I am trained, qualified and experienced both as a coach and a hypnotherapist. For many years I have helped people with stress and anxiety. This has been 1-2-1 with private clients as well as running stress management programmes for corporate clients. I've worked with people who are mildly stressed, as well as those who are suffering from extreme anxiety. I run in house training programmes for my corporate clients through my company Leaders and Teams Ltd often focused around the softer skills such as: - Communication - Motivation - Confidence - Mindset - Team development - and more If you've heard of something called NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) then I'm a master practitioner of that. If you've not heard of it that's ok. It's just part of my toolkit and it helps me to understand people better. The more that I understand the person in front of me the more that I can help them achieve their goals and outcomes. The overriding thing, that for me encompasses everything that I do, is helping people to reach their full potential. I include myself in that statement as I am no more the finished article than anyone else. Outside of work I am a husband, a father, a son, a brother and hopefully a friend. I enjoy traveling with my family, playing guitar and learning new things. I've recently completed a Udemy course on punctuation and grammar. Random and uninteresting fact. I learned the names of every country in the world and can identify them on a map as a way to challenge myself. I did that after being on holiday in Tenerife and realising that I had absolutely no idea where in the world the Canary Islands are.

Work wise, I consider myself to be a personal-development and mindset coach. I am trained, qualified and experienced both as a coach and a hypnotherapist. For many years I have helped people with stress and anxiety. This has been 1-2-1 with private clients as well as running stress management programmes for corporate clients. I've worked with people who are mildly stressed, as well as those who are suffering from extreme anxiety. I run in house training programmes for my corporate clients through my company Leaders and Teams Ltd often focused around the softer skills such as: - Communication - Motivation - Confidence - Mindset - Team development - and more If you've heard of something called NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) then I'm a master practitioner of that. If you've not heard of it that's ok. It's just part of my toolkit and it helps me to understand people better. The more that I understand the person in front of me the more that I can help them achieve their goals and outcomes. The overriding thing, that for me encompasses everything that I do, is helping people to reach their full potential. I include myself in that statement as I am no more the finished article than anyone else. Outside of work I am a husband, a father, a son, a brother and hopefully a friend. I enjoy traveling with my family, playing guitar and learning new things. I've recently completed a Udemy course on punctuation and grammar. Random and uninteresting fact. I learned the names of every country in the world and can identify them on a map as a way to challenge myself. I did that after being on holiday in Tenerife and realising that I had absolutely no idea where in the world the Canary Islands are.
