Managing Stress & Anxiety with CBT & TRE
Learn effective tools to manage stress & anxiety with two completely distinct brain body therapies – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) & TRE. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), is a psychological approach that can help you to manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. CBT is widely used in depression and anxiety. It’s focus is on current problems and looks at the interactions between thoughts, moods, physical symptoms and behaviours. CBT is particularly interested in identifying unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that can trap you in vicious cycles.
You will be introduced to the CBT model and learn how to map out your own cycles with an emphasis on stress and anxiety. We will look at unhelpful thinking styles and unhelpful behaviours. Learning to unpick your experiences in this way enables you to start to make changes in these areas, in turn this can have a positive effect on mood.
TRE (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises) is a set of 7 simple exercises design to release tension and stress from the body – through shaking! The exercises engage a reflex deep in the brain to allow us to discharge, rebalance and shake it off naturally like other mammals. The shaking is organic and involuntary and although a little unusual at first it is usually enjoyable and rebalances the nervous system.
