Stress Management and Relaxation Techniques Spring Course

Stress Management And Relaxation Techniques Spring Course

Friday 12th February 2016

£180 (£150 if booked by Jan 8th)

The SMART Programme is a 6 week course that teaches you to create a more positive relationship with yourself. Using mindfulness, meditation and visualisation it connects with your real-world existence where family and work responsibilities and pressures are ever present. You will learn how anxiety is just as much a physical as an emotional condition and how to create a more harmonious mind-body connection. You will explore your own relationship with anxiety and how anxiety can represent a low-level nagging fear, or sometimes terror, which can sometimes give rise to outbursts of anger.

You will learn how to treat yourself with compassion and to extend your feelings of compassion to those you love. In this way you will learn to treat yourself more kindly but without destructive self-pity.

Going beyond this, the course encourages you to examine your relationship with yourself and through that with others, be that family or work colleagues, and to create a new “brand”. Your brand represents the images, values and beliefs that you maintain for yourself and portray to others, very often in self-defeating ways. Using mindfulness you can challenge and change this brand for the better.

The course will be presented by David Spicer, an experienced UKCP Registered Psychotherapeutic counsellor, Mindfulness-Based CBT practitioner and trained Relaxation, Meditation and Mindfulness trainer.

The course is limited for a small group of no more than 12 and will cost £180 for the 6 week course. An early-bird reduction to £150 is available if booked by Friday 8th January. Please visit for more information and a booking form.
