NOTE

* It is essential to register ahead (as above / by email) in order to ensure smooth running and to accommodate numbers as some venues can have limited space.  

**Moodsters (those who have already completed the course once) are very welcome to join any Stress Busters course for a top-up or refresher

***We hire/use rooms in church or parish centres only where we have permission for all-faiths-and-none to attend.

Give it a go!

Stress is an umbrella word for lots of mood states incl anxiety, panic,  low confidence, and worry.  Yet there is no assumption that anyone attending Stress Busters is stressed - as it is also  OK to attend for information, prevention or  just the bit of craic!  "Stress Busters" is suitable for adults of all ages, backgrounds and cultures, though anyone in crisis would be better suited to having 1-1 CBT.  

Stress Cafe Meetups

"Stress  Cafe" is only open to Moodsters (those who have completed our Stress Busters course - see above, or had 1-1 CBT with us). Stress Cafe offers a golden opportunity: 

  • to get regular updates on techniques; 
  • to trouble shoot queries or problems; 
  • to enjoy the company and experience of like-minded others, and catch up with new friends, and
  • to continue building momentum towards "better" which includes greater self-awareness and inner confidence.  

 NOTE: It is very important to register ahead or let us know you are coming by phone/email/our contact form given the reality of last-minute changes to venue or times.   Also, any Moodster can join any Stress Cafe meetup anywhere, incl outside your region.
