Stress Less

Stop worrying about the past and the future – focus on the now. These deeply centring group sessions allow you to explore more about yourself and learn a range of techniques that will help you look after your mental health.

Is Stress Less for you?

Stress Less is all about tuning your mind in with your body – listening to what it is telling you and acting on it. It’s based on a form of mindfulness cognitive therapy that has proved very effective in hospitals across the USA and is becoming increasingly popular in the UK. If you feel that life is wearing you down and that you’ve lost the ability to live in the moment and appreciate the here and now, Stress Less is the answer. It will teach you to be gentle on yourself and, by making the most of the present, stop regretting the past or worrying about the future, leading to a sense of physical and psychological wellbeing.

How does it work?

Stress Less is facilitated by experienced Living Well counsellors and life coaches. You can attend Stress Less in a number of different ways, meaning it is flexible and easy to fit into your life. Living Well currently offers one day taster courses, where you can see if Stress Less is for you, as well as more in depth programmes run over a number of weeks.

What do coaches say Stress Less?

‘Stress Less brings you into the present so you’re not in the past regretting things or anxiously imaging the future.’

What do clients say about Stress Less?

‘I am now aware of my mind going into ‘sad thought’ mode and have learnt the tools to stop it right there and then.’
