Residential at the college

The pressures of everyday life mean we have to juggle many things such as family, friends, work and studies,  all of which make demands on us. Sometimes we can feel that its just all too much and when we do, our stress levels increase and we experience a range of unpleasant symptoms. This affects our overall wellbeing and in extreme circumstances can be dangerous. Stress affects everyone in different ways and has been dubbed the ‘silent killer’. However, it does not have to be this way. This course will help you to explore the nature of stress and identify how best to respond in order to reduce the negative effects.
