Workshop Overview

In this unique and engaging workshop, you will experience a new approach to building resilience using the Havening Techniques. This is a simple and highly effective tool, informed by neuroscience, which can help students alleviate and prevent stress whilst enhancing their wellbeing and learning experience/outcomes.

Increasingly, college and university students have been in the media due to rising stress levels, anxiety, depression and suicide rates.  Transition to college and university can be stressful placing pressure on their emotional, mental and physical well-being. Stress can arise due to the big life change around leaving home, adjusting to the learning institution and associated personal and familial expectations, not eating, sleeping and doing fitness well and pressures to achieve during their costly once in a life-time university experience. Not to mention climate change.  It is not surprising that some will experience the onset of emotional and mental health issues due to these stressors, or perhaps due to a vulnerability they already have or a combination. 

This workshop will provide a unique and highly effective tool that can help build your emotional resilience and wellbeing as well as improve your experience at college or university and learning outcomes.
