Managing Pressure Positively

Stress, a part of everyday life, something to be lived with, inescapable???

In many cases, stress has power over us because we don't realize that we have choices and could be doing things differently.

Thiscourse will allow the participants to understand the natureand sources of their stress. They will gain the skills to deal with their stress symptoms and with stressful situations, they will learn how to relax and to choose a healthier and happier future.The skills gained can be equally applied to stress at home or at work, from dealing with tasks or to managing people and situations.

By the end of the course participants can expect to:

  • understand the biological basis of stress and it's symptoms
  • see the reasons why stress is personal and identify your particular stressors
  • become aware of how you deal with stressful situations
  • have choices to deal with stress in a healthier or more helpful way
  • learn techniques that can help to deal with the symptoms of stress
  • have tools to manage themselves and their environment more effectively


Speaker: Dr Margaret Collins

My research career is driven by the question "How does that work?". During my career at the University of Surrey, The Institute for Animal Health and the Royal Veterinary College it didn't take long for me to begin to ask that question about teaching students. Why were some techniques more effective than others? What if students had different learning styles?

Similarly when it came to career progression and promotion, why did some people move up more quickly and easily than others? How did that work?

I found many answers through study of Coaching, Behavioural Styles Analysis, Neuro Linguistic Programming and developments in educational theory. In 2003 I founded this company, designed to bring aspects of these disciplines into academic workshops for you to share!
