It was clear from the beginning that Jordan is very knowledgeable, informed and experienced in the area of stress management and he professionally and articulately delivered the programme. I really enjoyed and benefited from the course and I look forward to applying the tools and techniques taught on both myself and with my clients. Thank you Jordan!"

Course Overview

Real and sustained success requires effective stress management. Unhealthy stress is an obstacle that slows and often blocks us and those we serve from reaching our professional and personal goals. Distress makes change, job searches, leadership, performing and optimal health even more challenging, while triggering behaviors and habits that hinder weight loss, smoking cessation, relationships and earning power. Stress Coach U teaches concrete techniques that increase the effectiveness of our work, and the efforts of our clients, students and patients, by smoothing and removing stress that impedes goal achievement.
