Our Stress Busters course is a great way of gaining a better understanding of yourself and how stress affects you. All our courses are delivered within a group environment so you must be willing to participate in group exercises. It is not group therapy and is only suitable for those that feel ready and able to deal with their stress. Our course facilitators are extremely experienced, however, they are not trained counsellors and so are not able to offer individual therapeutic support.
Our courses are completely free of charge to those living within the Glasgow City Council area.
We are able to offer our courses free of charge to Glasgow City Council residents due to the funding we receive from Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership. This unfortunately means that we are currently unable to offer a place on any of our courses to anyone that doesn't live within the area that we cover.
