Stress Management and Well-being

Stress is the epidemic of the 21stC and impacts people’s lives in a myriad of ways. The stress management workshops and presentations provide the insight, practical tools, and strategies that are needed to lower stress and build resilience to achieve balance, fulfillment and success. This workshop takes a multimodal approach to managing stress, considering how it impacts one’s behavior, emotions, body sensations, imagery, thinking, relationships and physical well-being. Techniques will be introduced to address each of these modalities and will include the use of biofeedback (including the highly regarded HeartMath system).

Anger Management

Often anger is a front for other feelings like sadness, frustration, loneliness or powerlessness. Using Redford Williams’ 12 steps we help participants control aggression by learning to challenge their negative thought processes and develop appropriate ways to express their feelings. By becoming aware of the underlying emotion, participants can learn to change how they view, interpret and describe events, effectively channeling anger into more creative outcomes.

Coaching and Life Success Skills

Effective life coaching is a form of change-facilitation that ‘enables’ rather than ‘trains’ people.

Rooted in insight-based approaches, every session in this series offers an opportunity to go deeper in refining personal transformation and in unlocking your true potential.
