Stress Management / Workplace Pressure Program
What Ian does on a professional basis, indeed as a specialty, is to assist people to manage and eliminate stress from their lives.
After undergoing the program, clients typically report that they are feeling more energetic, more relaxed and more able to deal with the challenges in their lives. They also report that relationships at home and in work improve. Obviously, their GP’s will be the ones to advise on the improvement in the more physical symptoms such as High Blood Pressure.
It is being more and more acknowledged that Stress is a growing phenomenon in today’s busy environment, whether it is in the workplace, in the home or due to other factors such as financial pressures or health worries.
