In this course, we will look at how to process difficult emotions in healthy and constructive ways, so that you can enjoy more ease and equanimity. 

In our everyday work and personal lives, we experience a range of emotions, including potentially challenging ones such as anxiety, frustration, apprehension, anger, fear, inadequacy, sadness, and overwhelm. However, many of us have not yet learned the best ways to approach these feelings and it can be easy to go into emotional reactivity.  

You will learn how to recognise, regulate and process your emotions, and you’ll be able to respond constructively. You will leave the course with a set of strategies to apply when difficult emotions arise and an understanding of proactive possibilities to help reduce the likelihood of turbulence. As a result, you will access greater calm, balance, and clarity. These shifts will help you to navigate life’s ups and downs, support your own well-being, enhance cognitive capacity, and increase effectiveness in the workplace and in your personal life.  

This training is approached with sensitivity and with care.
