We are living in times of great change in our lives.  Facilitated by Dr. Fergus Heffernan, this presentation aims to enhance our skills to cope in challenging times.

Just as simple measures – regular exercise, a sensible diet – keep your body fit, there are attitudes and skills you can develop to build a healthy mind.  In this presentation we shall set out strategies that will stretch, strengthen, and tune your mind to help you cope with the rigours of everyday life.

The mind is a powerful tool, but without good training, your moods, thoughts and behaviour can sabotage your goals and cause depression and anxiety.  “Creating Resilience in Tough Challenging Times” shows you how to keep mentally fit – how to tap into your minds power – so you can enjoy your life to the fullest.

Our working and living environments have never been so challenging with increased expectations and demands of life.  The net result in this is a massive increase in anxiety and anxiety related disorders.  “Manage your Life by Managing your Mind”, looks at how to mind ourselves in these difficult times.

Feeling good is not just a question of addressing a few problems but depends on the development of positive attitudes and skills that can help you make the most of your opportunities. “Manage your Life by Managing your Mind”, is a guide that looks at how we all have gotten lost in life at the moment.  Most of us are so engaged in life and all its anxieties that we can find it very difficult to differentiate our own issues from other peoples issues, and this is having a profound negative effect on our physical, emotional, and psychological wellbeing.

  • Build self-conficence
