What happens during a Stress Relief Session?
You are invited to bring your stress to the session and I support you to find calm & clarity. The call is also your opportunity to explore whether further work with me could help you find a long-term solution to managing & mitigating your stress by coming on the Stress Management Course I offer.
When do you run the program?
I run the program during the week, generally from Monday to Wednesday, with the possibility to add an extra ‘Practice Day’ on the Thursday.
What about Covid? What safety measures do you have in place for my stay?
I have been running stress management retreats since the last lockdown lifted and meet all the regulations stipulated by the government. The house is open plan downstairs and I keep it well ventilated. The yoga room has a door and we practice with the window slightly open or we practice outside in the garden.
When is your payment policy and do you give refunds in relation to cancellations due to Covid?
Payment is 50% upfront and 50% one month before arrival. If you have to cancel due to Covid, you are invited to rebook on another date. If that is not possible, a 10% fee is held to cover admin costs and the remainder is fully reimbursed.
What if I need support getting my stress management training sponsored by my organisation?
If you are eligible to access your organisation’s training budget, you can sign up here to receive your Mind Your Stress Application Kit. It includes all the documents you need to ask for funding from your management and/or HR department.
How do I keep calm when I return to my stressful environment?
During the stress management retreat, you are building a skillset that will have a long-lasting effect in your life – both business and personal. You will benefit from the skillset as long as you keep practising & adapting it to your needs. The real transformation is in realising that the stress doesn’t go away; your reaction and attitude towards it changes.
How do I sustain the practices when I go back to the real world?
The stress management course includes one month’s virtual support. This includes bi-weekly one-hour calls which can be used as yoga/breathing/stretching sessions or as calls to support and track your progress. You can extend the virtual support for as long as you need it.
What is Bridget’s mission with her stress-related work and this course?
Bridget is on a mission to offer one of the best stress management courses in the UK. Rather than offer the traditional stress management course in a corporate training setting, Bridget believes that what business people with stress overwhelm need is a more natural, nurturing environment where they can reset, refresh and return to their lives with a doable stress management plan.
What makes Bridget different from other yoga or breath coaches?
I don’t define myself as a yoga teacher. I am a business woman whose entrepreneurial energy has been redirected from the language to the wellness industry. I wanted to move from working with documents to working with people, and to share a wellness skillset I had been developing for my own needs during my career.
What certifications does Bridget hold?
As well as doing two certificate courses in yoga (200 hr Yoga Teacher Training Course + 50 hr Yoga for Kids Training Course), Bridget has completed a stress certified course in meditation with the British Mindfulness Institute as well as being certified as a Positive Neuroplasticity Coach. Furthermore, Bridget is registered with CIMPSA in the UK and insured by UK Coaching.
