Supporting stress, anxiety and depression
This course looks at how we can best support clients who are living with stress, anxiety and depression both in terms of offering self-help techniques and adaptations to our reflexology.
This course explores the different physiologies of stress, anxiety and depression and what science is telling us about the benefits of touch. These then lead us to considering adaptations to our reflexology that can be used to help support the body systems in these difficult times.
For clients living with anxiety and depression there are plenty of activities and lifestyle factors that they can learn to incorporate into their lives to help them to manage these issues. You will learn about current self-help techniques and general advice that can be passed on to your clients to help monitor and improve their emotional wellbeing.
This course will give you:
An understanding of the anatomy, physiology and possible causes behind stress, anxiety and depression
Self help techniques for clients with minor stress, anxiety and depression
Knowledge of when to refer a client to a GP or counsellor
A basic knowledge of mindfulness, positive psychology and journaling
A mindful breathing technique to use with reflexology
Reflexology techniques to support stress, anxiety and depression
After the course you will also receive additional reading and links to a YouTube video so you will be able to read more about issues covered during the day and watch the videos as a reminder of the practical techniques.
Please note that these courses are for those already holding a diploma level 3 or above in reflexology.
Refreshments will be provided but please bring your own water and lunch.
Please bring a LaFuma chair with you if possible.
