What is Stress & Anxiety
Stress and anxiety occur when the fear response system, our natural defence is triggered. Under normal circumstances the brain assesses the threat level and everything resets. Sometimes however, the mind begins analysing the situation and can begin creating stories around the event. This can prolong our exposure to the defense system and if we begin ruminating on situations or rehearsing scenarios in advance, we can keep the fear response on high alert unncessarily. At this point, the chemicals of stress can take over and things begin to feel a little bit out of control. We may even feel like we can't trust ourselves to be in situations without losing our temper or breaking down. This gives us yet one more thing to worry about.
You CAN turn this around
When we try to resolve our stress or anxiety we get caught up in the head, coming up with solutions that seem impossible to implement. We might change our circumstances only to find that the stress re-appears. The mind seems to find new things to worry about.
Although we believe we are in control of our minds, bodies, emotions and behaviour, some of our actions run on automatic pilot based on programs the brain created when we were very young. The brain is like a muscle, so the more we practice these programs the stronger they become. The brain doesn't care if the programs are helpful or not and if we're not aware of the inner workings of our mind, we don't really notice. The mind has a powerful influence on our emotions and our energy.
When we experience stress, the body tries very hard to return us to a state of emotional balance. Therefore if we are stressed continually the body is working on high alert, which is physically and mentally expensive. At the same time the body is fighting to return us to balance. All of this can take it's toll over time impacting our sleep, our mood, our immune system and eventually can lead to burn out.

James (I.T Tech Lead)
I was really sceptical about the concept but I've been surprised by how effective it's been. The first week gave me techniques I could apply instantly. Although I found some of the practices difficult, I left the course able to tune into techniques that help me manage stress. I no longer feel like my stress is out of control. It's improved my sleep and overall I feel less on edge.
Elisabeth (Pharmaceuticals Student)
I absolutely loved the theory of the mind and found it so fascinating. I used the techniques to manage my day but also followed the practices when I felt overwhelmed. I don't think I could have got through exam season without it. Thank you Julie.
Heather (NHS worker)
I knew my stress was out of control but couldn't face joining a group. It took a couple of sessions to get into, but I'm so glad I did it. After a few days I started to notice my reactions to situations and to begin taking a step back.
