Stress Control is a class – not group therapy – so you do not have to talk about your problems in front of others. You are invited to sit back, listen and learn some great ways to manage stress. This approach was devised by Dr. Jim White – a Clinical Psychologist in Glasgow – and is now used across the world. Stress Control will be run by Dr Veronica Byrne, Clinical Psychologist and Lucy Phillips, Assistant Psychologist with the HSE North Cork Primary Care Psychology Service this February 13th to March 19th.
People who attended Stress Control groups in Cork have said:
“It reminded me that life can be stressful, I am not alone and help is there...it’s nothing to be ashamed of ”
“Some of the symptoms I have experienced, I didn’t realise were stress related”
‘I got a better understanding of what was happening in my body and how to control it’
