Session Outline:

Session 1 – Understanding stress: In this session, we will help your young person to understand what stress is and how it affects them. They will also learn how to recognise signs of stress within themselves.

Session 2 – Stress and Their Bodies: During this session, we will explore how stress impacts their bodies. They will also learn ways to track their stress levels for better management.

Session 3 – Coping Strategies: This session focuses on equipping your young person with effective strategies to cope with stress. These range from simple calming exercises like belly breathing to mindfulness activities such as guided imagery and mindfulness colouring.

Session 4 – Building Healthy Habits: In this session, we will guide them in establishing healthy habits that contribute to overall well-being. We will discuss aspects like sleep, exercise, balanced nutrition, and self-care, and provide practical tools for implementing these habits.

Session 5 – Time Management: During this session, your young person will learn time management skills that can reduce stress and enhance their productivity.

Session 6 – Problem Solving:  We will help your young person develop problem-solving skills to approach challenges with confidence.

Session 7 – Positive Thinking: Identifying negative thought patterns that contribute to stress is important. In this session, your young person will learn strategies to change these patterns.

Session 8: Personalised Stress Action Plan: In the final session, your young person will create their own personalised plan to cope with stress. This plan will be tailored to their unique needs and preferences.

We aim to create highly interactive sessions that emphasise reflection, discussion, and engaging activities. These activities include opportunities for creative expression and fun games that illustrate the concepts and strategies we cover.
