What Clients Say
"I assumed the tone would be like other stress coaches - soft, overly positive, idealistic. But NO! You were just you … straightforward, the occasional swear word, and called B*S* on “self-care” or me more than once! It gave me the kick I needed to act."
"I quickly identified where my stress comes from, triggers, innate reactions and consequences - this has led me on to another piece of personal journey work.
Your work led me to other very helpful resources for personal self discovery.
There were some highlights to the course work for me: I’ll share my top ones
• Ascertaining was Understanding my stress triggers
• Identifying how detrimental those are and how to cope with them if not eradicate them
• Thinking about my values in a new way , and clearly seeing many of my actions to not act align to these!"
"The work we did together has changed my understanding of what I really wanted and what was important to me. It gave me the courage to go after the job I really wanted."
"I have been putting off dealing with my stress, hoping it would go away.
The course was really eye-opening. It isn’t what I expected but has done so much more for me than I expected too.
I am a much better manager and much nicer to be around now. And I have resources I can come back to when I need them as new problems come up. "
8 CORE PILLARS OF THE STRESS RESET
The STRESS RESET method is made up of 8 pillars: reflect, recognise, reframe, realign, reconnect, renew, refresh, and reset. Scroll down to explore these pillars in more detail.
Before we start the programme, it’s helpful to set a baseline for our current relationship with stress. We will look at the definitions we use when we talk about stress, and the importance of “stress mindset” … what you believe about stress matters.
Stress is your body’s natural way of responding to any kind of demand or threat… but there is more to this response than fight or flight. We look at the biology of stress; how the mind and body play equally important roles in the process; identify your own personal stress response and exactly what triggers it; and we look at ways to relieve physical symptoms of stress.
You cannot necessarily control everything in life, but you can control how you view it. We begin to explore how we can use the stress triggers and symptoms to start to change our reaction to stress. We also see how the little habits our brain has developed to promote survival can trip us up in the modern world, and how to work around them.
Research on resilience shows that having a sense of purpose helps people persist through – and bounce back from – adversity. We identify the things that are most important to you – your values – and how you can connect with them to find strength and solutions under pressure. This includes a deeper dive into procrastination and worrying – both frequently associated with stress.
Stress can be isolating. We can feel inadequate, singled out and alone in our struggle. We will look at how connecting and caring for others triggers the biology of courage and creates hope, examine and extend our support network, and hone in on why personal conflict can be so hard to deal with and simple techniques for dealing with it.
Without our stress responses, our ability to effectively learn, form memories, and change our behaviours for better survival would be severely diminished. But is it true that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger? We identify your strengths, how you can utilise them to perform well under-pressure and the value of reflection in building resilience. We will also look specifically at overwhelm – when we feel inadequate to the task(s) at hand – and what to do about it.
The pursuit of happiness has become a big source of stress… but science shows that there are small shifts and habits that can make a big difference. Learn what psychology and neuroscience have discovered really makes us happy; and how to build more of them into your day without creating more demands on your time, money or energy.
Knowledge is only half the battle. Time to put the techniques you have found work for you into a personal action plan. Outline how you will use and build on what you have learned to rise to the challenge under pressure, and create more meaning, success, and happiness in life without more stress.
