Our workplace stress management course makes you aware of the potential impact of work-related stress, allows you to recognise your stress triggers and helps you manage any work-related stress you are experiencing.

We cover what you should do if you have tried all the self-help techniques and still feel unable to cope with the levels of stress you are experiencing.

The course takes about 1-2 hours to complete, although you have no needless time limits or deadlines. Complete your studies at a comfortable pace which suits your schedule.

The training course identifies positive ways of dealing with stress. An example is being active, an excellent way to reduce stress levels. Exercise releases endorphins into your bloodstream, which make you feel good and lift your mood. Your stress may not disappear, but it will help you feel calmer to deal with your problems with a clearer mind. Our stress management course breaks down examples like this and all other stress management tactics.
