This course offers Carers tools and techniques to relieve emotional distress by finding new and effective ways of managing their stress; learning to handle their thoughts, moods and emotions more effectively; being better able to deal with physical, mental, social and emotional issues; and living their lives more fully. The mindfulness skills we offer have been shown to be highly effective in reducing stress and enhancing well-being.
