Effective ways to control stress
If you often find yourself feeling anxious, low, stressed, panicky or worried, then Stress Buster could be for you. It is an NHS-funded five session course (approx 1 ½ hrs per week) that has a focus on learning about stress, understanding its effects on the way we think, feel and behave. Courses are run across Cornwall and it's free to attend.
It is an educational class to help you learn ways of tackling and controlling stress. It is not group therapy. Attendees are never asked about personal problems and there is no expectation for anyone to speak.
You attend a series of tried and tested presentations that are designed to arm you with the knowledge and skills that will help you cope with stress more effectively. For a cost of £5 you can also buy a Stress Buster handbook and CD which is specifically designed to accompany the course.
We run Stress Buster courses at venues right across Cornwall. The facilitators are all experienced professionals with Outlook South West. There is no need to book a place – you simply turn up (on your own or with a friend or family member), register a few basic details, sit back and listen to the presenter.
