The average person spends over fifty percent of their waking hours at work.  As modern society exerts ever increasing pressure on the workforce, the need for individuals to perform optimally – physically, mentally and emotionally to meet the demands, has never been greater.

At the time of developing this online course, the world finds itself in unprecedented circumstances as we stand united against COVID-19. This virus has highlighted the need for the protection of our most vulnerable citizens as well as the need to develop greater  resilience and holistic well-being, to resist disease and cope with the economic and social aftermath. It has also led to very strong feelings of anxiety, uncertainty, loneliness, isolation and helplessness. Bringing these emotions into consciousness and developing management techniques is very important to your well-being. What you learn on this course, will help you to do that and equip you to play an important role in helping others.
