What does the Stress Management Course include?

Healing with nature

The retreat is a time to reconnect to nature with wetland & beach walks, breathwalks along the tidal creek, time in the forest at the Sandringham estate as well as quiet times in Bridget’s garden.

Nurturing with good food

Learning to feed yourself is a key part of self-care. Locally sourced ingredients are freshly prepared into healthy vegetarian-friendly dishes and shared around Bridget’s vibrant table.

Stress Managment

Stretching to release tension

By learning to release tension from the body and calm the nervous system you disrupt your stress response. Explore a range of destressing techniques including desk-bound targeted stretches, relaxation poses and yoga sequences.


Breathing to disrupt stress

By learning to use the breath as a tool you can manage your emotional state and the way you think. Practice a range of breathing techniques to destress and calm as well as to find focus and clarity in times of stress.


Being in the present moment

By developing self-awareness, you become more centred and fully present in your business. Explore a range of mindfulness techniques to help you disrupt anxiety loops and live in the present moment.

Relaxing for optimum performance

Quality sleep and relaxation is essential for optimum performance and concentration. Master the ‘relaxation response’ and explore pre-sleep routines that set you up for a good night’s sleep and a refreshed start to your day.

Imagine how it would feel to:

  • Know how to disrupt your stress response so it doesn’t continue to hijack your body, mind & emotions,
  • Master tools & techniques to build calm, headspace and resilience into our work day,
  • Manage your working life with advanced breathing techniques to retrain poor breathing habits to reduce stress,
  • Co-design a bespoke wellness plan & personalised yoga & stretching sequence to mitigate future stress overwhelm,
  • Test how to nurture your mind, body, breath connection to consciously tap into its power,
  • Control your negative mind, break anxiety loops and be present – even in stressful times.

Where does the Stress Management Retreat take place?

One of the most effective ways to break your stress cycle is to remove yourself from your stressful environments – both personal and professional.

You’ll receive your stress management training program in a small village by the sea on the west Norfolk coast, England. You’ll stay in Bridget’s house (a registered B&B with a five-star rated kitchen), enjoy sessions in her training studio, eat healthy home-cooked food at her table and enjoy some nature therapy along the beach and tidal creek.

Heacham village is 3 hours from London by car, or come by train from Kings Cross in under two hours for collection at King’s Lynn station.

The core part of the Stress Management Retreat takes place over 3 residential days (with two nights). There is an option to book another night and ‘practice day’ to help you embed the new practices and techniques you will take home with you.

Ongoing virtual support is offered for a month following the residential training, which includes bi-weekly sessions. These one-hour sessions are designed to support you as you learn to manage your stress. They can be used as yoga/stretching/breathing sessions or as calls to track and share your progress – or both. Continued virtual support can be arranged if desired.

Bridget puts a great deal of effort into meeting clients' needs. She genuinely cares about ensuring that the client has a very positive and fulfilling time by ensuring that you are getting what you need. I loved the yoga and the breathing workshop is absolutely fantastic.

Why work with me?

Hi there, I’m Bridget.

My two loves are business & wellness.

I came close to a burnout when I ran my own company in Beijing, China for over a decade while bringing up my three children. I experienced the destructive impact of stress on professional & home life – so I empathise with your situation.

The Mind Your Stress program draws together all the things I love: hosting & feeding people in my home, sharing a more holistic, body-led way to manage stress, & spending time outdoors.

Still not sure it’s possible to manage your stress? I invite you to book a 15-minute session with me and I’ll bring you some instant stress relief.

Come join me on this Stress Management Retreat – you’ll leave a different person!

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens after I click “Book a Stress Relief Session”?
Book a Stress Relief Session

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.
