Being Balanced Stress Training Day

What people need to know about stress and how they can minimise the risks of stress in their lives


The Being Balanced Stress Training Day has been developed over several years in order to meet the needs of organizations and individuals that recognize the risks that stress and workplace stress have on their businesses.

Workplace Stress

This course is specifically designed for people who have become stressed or who get stressed easily. It is both for those who are in charge and for those people who have difficulties in coping with stress.

The course is fully experiential and practical, involving exercises, techniques and tools which not only empower the individual attendees but also give them tangible tools to take back into their lives.

The course is a culmination of over 20 years experience in stress management and management positions. The course is held in a beautiful training centre in the Pennines, West Yorkshire and much of the teaching is outdoors. This helps to ground and relax the individuals and also helps the information to enter deeply into the mind – the more relaxed we are, the more deeply the information enters.

"I am writing to thank you for the very enlightening and interesting day at Hebden Bridge . The location was truly amazing and a perfect setting for the content of the day."

Adrian Pickersgill, Schools Catering Manager, Doncaster Council

“Just a thank you for a very informative, mind-provoking and interactive day on the Being Balanced Stress Training Day.

The venue was superb and the settings calm and relaxing. I was, I must admit very sceptical before attending, however as the day progressed found it more and more stimulating and very enjoyable.

Working with providing a front line service that is demanding, ever changing and challenging does lead to stressful situations.

Using the methods I learned on the day and the subsequent masterclass material has been invaluable in altering my stress levels and I now approach life in a calmer, more positive frame of mind.

Thank you for introducing me to the methods.”

Michael Kirwan, Public Buildings Maintenance Manager, Doncaster Council
