If you want to be able to cope with change more effectively and help others then this course is a great starting point for you. The one constant in life is change and it is inevitable. However in the current climate over the last 8 months, the amount of change people have had to deal with has far exceeded anything many of us have experienced in our lifetime. Change for many people can be disconcerting creating uncertainty, anxiety and overwhelm. Often the hardest changes to understand and adjust to are the ones that are unexpected and out of our control. E.g. A global pandemic, a recession, redundancy and a sudden loss of a loved one to name a few.

We CANNOT stop change happening to us. However, what we CAN do is learn how to respond to change influencing our choices both now and in the future. Learning how to cope with change can also be galvanising creating energy, opportunities and motivation for new ways of doing things.
