Mind Your Thinking: Overcoming Stress

May 10, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Learn how to use cognitive techniques to free yourself from stress and help prevent burnout

Typically, we can get caught up in anxiety and stress owing to the ‘busyness’ of our lives. Over time this can impact our health and relationships at work and in our home lives.

Lacking clarity and focus, it is easy to become caught up in the drama of what is unfolding in the world around you. With an understanding of how easy it is to become derailed by our thoughts, we are able to re-focus, develop greater clarity, and restore our wellbeing.

In this session you will learn how to recognise and reframe unhelpful thought patterns and behaviours and start to build resilience to the stressors of every day life.

A solopreneur of Finding True North, she teaches business owners, professionals, and executives how to overcome stress and anxiety, find clarity, and make sense of their business and personal lives.

Ann provides support through individual and team coaching, delivering webinars on personal effectiveness, resilience, productivity, and empowerment; designing ‘Bridging Minds’ de-stress programmes; and speaking at local and national events and conferences.
