When our research moved from sudden-event trauma to studying how slow-stress builds, one of the first things that became apparent was that stress is accumulative. This means a stressful home can lead to your performance at work being impaired and your workplace itself becoming another place of high-stress. Having created a sort of chain reaction, where anxiety is carried around from place to place, it becomes very difficult to establish, on your own, the best way to reduce your mounting stress levels. 

This course creates the foundation for you to do exactly that. Almost all complex lifestyles where Excess-stress has become established can be deconstructed with this course and a period of one-to-one therapy. This combined course, which covers the material in GC1108 and GC1109, can be taken in a number of ways:

  1. Entirely online (approximately 13 hours home study). Only consider this option if it really is the only one open to you, as much beneficial understanding that is presented face-to-face will be missed;
  2. As a 2-day course, presented in London or in Alderney, which includes some optional personal therapy. (The Alderney venue has an obligatory overnight stay and there is more time for personal therapy with this option);
  3. As a 3-day break, presented in Alderney, which includes everything on the 2-day course plus a programme of exercises and optional therapy which may be enough to reduce your stress levels to an acceptable level for you, pending a review over the next month or so.
