MIND, BODY AND SOUL: Practical Application for Reducing Stress


Book for this course below.  

This 6 week course (9 hours) is set in the beautiful Tuki-Tuki valley (as above). Discover how through increased awareness of your body and surroundings, you can develop practical skills to help you recognise your internal cues and responses to situations. Understanding how you work is a powerful tool that you can apply to increase fulfillment and reduce stress. We need to make a space for our souls to refresh, so come with an open mind to make discoveries about yourself in the tranquil/retreat setting.

Learn how stress affects your brain structure, memory, emotions, reactions to situations, and your health.  In this course you will be given handouts and practical activities to help you take action in your life to change the way your brain functions to minimise these effects and to learn to respond to situations differently. 

Topics Covered:

  • Recognising early signs of stress
  • Understanding how stress affects you
  • Learning the evidence behind brain changes that occur with stress and how mindfulness makes a difference
  • Understanding the effects of thoughts, our attitudes and the impact it has on you
  • Developing skills to manage stress and your thought processes so that they don't prevent you from living life to the full
  • Analysis of how you process thoughts and information, using work from neuroscientics research, to understand how you perceive situations compared to others around you (family, friends, colleagues)
  • ....plus more

I feel privileged and honoured to offer my recommendation and endorsement of Diane’s new program

Diane is a registered dietitian who has also invested enormously in her education in psychology, mindfulness training and the treatment of eating disorders but more importantly invests herself wholeheartedly in helping persons find effective ways to heal from very painful and difficult conditions and disorders.

To be effective in these fields takes a great deal more than formal education, even from such distinguished institutions as Oxford.  To effectively help persons with the pain and suffering experienced in these kinds of disorders requires at least a commensurate personal investment in cultivating mindfulness, compassion and loving kindness skills.

These skills can only be learned in the cauldrons of human suffering, both in the rawness of our individual lives but also in serving the lives of others. It’s clear to me that Diane has spent a great deal of time in both.

I feel privileged and honoured to offer my recommendation and endorsement of Diane’s new program and would encourage anyone that is seeking help with these difficult conditions to spend time with her and her new program to see for yourself how your personal investment with her can benefit your life.

I’m confident that this is one investment you will be happy to have made!

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Practitioner.
  • Diane also uses mindfulness as part of her regular daily living.
