And when your wellbeing is peaking, both mentally and physically, there’s nothing you can’t do. Important stuff, then.

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

    CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which is less complicated than it sounds.

  • Dealing with Stress

    Stress isn’t just a ‘buzzword’. It’s something that every one of us adults suffers from, right? Because stress is so common, sometimes it’s just assumed that we’ll ‘get over it’. But it’s not that simple. Stress can be extremely hard to ‘shake off’, in fact, it’s one of the six leading causes of death. We’ve GOT to take it seriously.

  • How to Have a Conversation about Mental Health

    In today’s world, it’s can be hard to get your point across. Everybody is busy. We’re so used to ‘on-demand’, well, everything, that when it comes to discussing mental health, people just don’t seem to have the time, because they assume that it’s going to be long winded, and then people get despondent if there’s no quick fix. 

    The reality is, they’re right. Improving mental health can take significant time. But that’s no reason to ignore the problem. In fact, it’s all the more reason to begin today. 

    This is an opportunity to give you something quick and effective to really motivate you. In today’s world, it’s can be hard to get your point across. Everybody is busy. There’s no quick fix for mental health and people get despondent if there’s no quick fix.

  • Panic Attacks

    Ever found yourself in a stressful situation where you suddenly feel extremely unwell? We’re talking chest pains, shaking, fear, hyperventilation, a massively increased heart rate…?

    When a panic attack hits, it might take you by surprise, and perhaps even cause you some extremely nasty physical side effects, even bringing on that heart attack. So we need to keep these in check when possible.

  • Paranoia

    Do you imagine that something bad has happened without any evidence of it? Maybe you think you’re being talked about behind your back, or that the government are attempting to control you. Don’t we all think that one?

    The fact is, sustained thoughts of this nature can lead to mental health issues. In fact, these paranoid thoughts are often indicative of deeper psychological problems, which may lead to poor mental and physical health. Thankfully, paranoid thought can be corrected, but only if you take action. This course will explain how.

  • Sleep Problems

    Feeling bleary-eyed? Unable to concentrate? Irritable and fatigued? These, and many more nasty symptoms can be yours with just a few nights of sleeping problems.

Lack of sleep can be dangerous, and lead to further mental health problems, which is just one reason to nip it in the bud as soon as possible.

  • Social Media and Self Image

    Social media is a great way to make contact with celebrities and catch up with friends, but filtered images and selected moments portray unrealistic goals which puts overwhelming pressure on young people. The stress to fit in can provoke anxiety, depression or eating and drug disorders.

You might not be able to tell from looking at a person whether they are suffering. But this short course is designed to help you recognise key ‘warning signs’ in yourself and others so that you can take appropriate action.

  • Workplace Mental Health

    Health is something we are all aware of even if we try to push it to the back of our mind when we are tucking into a Chinese.

    It’s true. And if it’s not dealt with properly then it could cause serious issues down the line. This course will guide you through all you need to know about mental health and what to do if a problem develops.

  • Worry and False Thinking

    It’s not uncommon to worry that bad things might happen. We all have those negative thoughts. But, for some people, those thoughts can spiral out of control. ‘My boss didn’t reply straightaway, so they must be mad at me. They’re going to fire me! I’ll lose my job, my house and car, and my family will hate me...’ But it’s not your fault, and you aren’t alone. There are strategies to help you recognise and deal with worry and false thought.
