Most Stress Management Training Consultants, Therapists and Coaches have a large box of stress management tools to choose from. Designed to help empower clients and students to make transforming changes in their life, by managing and letting go of chronic stress and anxiety.
Some stress management strategies give fast immediate relief but can be short lived. The most powerful stress management tools are those that are self-help skills that the client or student can apply effectively into their daily life and daily routine.
I began studying stress management courses in the 90’s when stress management was still mostly associated with occupational stress at work. I had already been studying reiki, meditation and other holistic well-being disciplines. But having a strong interest in self-help skills from a young age, I decided to combine the more traditional styles of stress management tools used in the work place with more holistic based stress management approaches.
My work included a combination of Counselling, CBT, Flower Remedies, Life Coaching, Healing, Meditation, Relaxation Therapy Techniques, Anger & Stress Management Advice & Analysis Tools, QE and occasionally I use a bit of NLP, Hypnotherapy, Release Technique …
But when asked about the most popular and powerful tools I have ever taught. I still have to say those are the simple but powerful daily life skills that help empower clients to experience more peace and self acceptance anytime, anywhere; are meditation and relaxation. Especially meditation techniques that help clients access instant stillness, as this helps the client move from the ego to the self very quickly.
Fortunately I have been studying various styles of meditation for a longtime and have access to highly effective meditation techniques to suit different clients needs.. with the right skills and dedication we can all access a state of peace no matter what life challenges are presented to us. We may forget it is there to use, but it is there and freely available once you know how. So for me meditation is the most powerful tool in my tool box. Especially my 5 Minute Meditation Technique
When you teach a client how to meditate and access stillness, you teach them how to be in the moment, how to flow with life, how not to get caught up in the resistance you can truly give that client a life transforming skill.
Many people teach meditation but don’t fully understand what they are teaching or how to teach it to support the student or client into incorporating it into their daily life. When you can truly do this and help the client understand that stress is pressure, stress is resistance, whilst meditation and peace is a neutral acceptance of that moment, not necessarily a giving up acceptance but a deep peaceful state of the present situation so when they have to make new decisions or new changes they will come from a more calmer neutral state instead of a fearful, anxious based state where most ego based decisions are made.
If you struggle with stress find it difficult to relax or switch off I have a range of online sessions and self study courses that teach you how to meditate and relax deeply.
Or if you are a holistic therapist or coach our Relaxation Therapist Training teaches you some of the most powerful meditation and relaxation techniques I taught over 15 years.
