Stress Control is a course which runs over six consecutive weeks.  If you want to learn better ways to handle common problems such as anxiety, depression, low self-confidence, poor sleep and panic attacks then come along to the Stress Control classes.

Stress Control is a class – not a group therapy – so you do not have to talk about your problems in front of others.  You just sit back and learn some of the ways to control stress.  This approach was devised by Dr. Jim White from Glasgow and is now used across the world.  Regular Stress Control classes in Sheffield commenced in October 2009.

As stress is so common, there may be between 50 – 100 people at each session.  Feel free if you want to bring someone with you.  They can give you a bit of support and also gets that person on the same wavelength.

What happens in each of the sessions?

Session 1: Information about stress
Session 2: Control your body: relaxation, exercise
Session 3: Control your thoughts: learn to think your way out of stress
Session 4: Control your actions: boost self confidence
Session 5: Control panic
Session 6: Control sleep problems; control your future

As a part of the Stress Control classes, there are booklets to read before or as soon as the course starts.  These will tell you:

  • All about stress
  • How to measure stress
  • How to work out how and why stress is affecting you
  • Self-help ideas to tackle stress
