"Stress Busters" courses (with meditation)

"Stress Busters" is a fun and informal community course to help adults understand and manage stress (an umbrella term for lots of feeling states). Men and women of all ages and cultures are most welcome to attend for information and prevention if not support. All Stress Busters courses will include some mindfulness-based experiential meditation or relaxation. (For information, the cost of our full 5-week Stress Busters community CBT course is £65, or £50 discounted rate for those unemployed. DAKtivist places may also be available.)

NOTE: Please register ahead or let us know you are coming by phone/email/our contact form given the possibility of last-minute changes to venue or times.

First nite taster

If unsure about this investment, we would encourage you to attend the first session of "Stress Busters" as a no-obligation taster (£10/€15). If continuing, the remaining cost to secure your place can simply be paid either at the end of that 1st session, or else before / at the second session.   

Please Note: From Week 2 the course closes to new entrants given the volume of material being covered


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.
