Your brain plays a huge role in stress on your body, as it is where the stress response first gets triggered. When you are not equipped to manage the stress in your life, this can start to manifest in physical symptoms. Toxic stress can impact your immune system, cause cell damage, affect your memory, result in illnesses and leave you vulnerable.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to overcoming stress, however, through my programme, you will learn powerful strategies and techniques which you can use to reduce the impact stress has on your body, your relationship and your entire life.
Overcoming Stress and Restoring Balance is a science-based programme that I have developed through years of formal training, research, personal experiences and treating clients in my own practice as a Dietitian and Wellbeing Coach.
If you are ready to learn how to stop toxic stress from ruling your life,
OVERCOMING STRESS AND RESTORING BALANCE,
is your solution
Each week is a combination of video based plus visuals to include all learning styles.
In life we often can’t change our situation – but we CAN change how we respond.
In this course, I teach you how to do that.
I not only give you practical strategies to implement, but also help you understand why they are important and how they will help you.
Here is How I will help you go from Overwhelm to Wellbeing and Balance
You will learn what stress is, what happens in a stress response, how this impacts you and the role of mindfulness and some simple things you can do to switch off the stress response.
You will assess and learn about useful attitudes to adopt, how mindfulness impacts your brain and helps reduce overthinking, and begin to tune into sensations in your body. This is a useful skill to help you identify the early warning signs that stress chemicals are being released with a strategy to switch them off!!
Your mind influences your brain. You will learn what thoughts look like, how this impacts you directly and practical strategies to reduce the effect these have on your mental and physical wellbeing.
You will learn about different perspectives, how to prioritise your time, and evaluate whether you have an inner critic or coach. There are 2 things many people with stress do – are you 1 of them and discover how by changing them, it can reduce your stress and increase your self esteem and confidence.
In our last week, we will learn how to develop your “wise self” versus your “emotional self”, and explore practical steps to help boost positive chemicals versus stress chemicals.
HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED TO COMMIT?
Each week is less than 45 minutes. Dealing with stress gives you more time in your day, as you can think more clearly.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE ACCESS TO THIS COURSE?
You can go back as many times as you want to. There is no end date for the course.
WHAT IF I MISS A WEEK OR FALL BEHIND?
No problem – keep working on the strategies you have implemented and pick up where you left off when you are ready. It is all done in your own time at your own pace.
I’VE TRIED UNSUCCESSFULLY TO MANAGE MY STRESS MYSELF IN THE PAST. HOW IS THIS PROGRAM DIFFERENT?
You are an individual and so different things will work for you compared to someone else. That is why I have included many different strategies for you to implement, so that you can choose what works for you.
WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS OR GET STUCK?
I am just an email away.
As far as courses go it was easy, I just had to listen, take in some sensible pragmatic ideas, I didn’t have to explain my past and dredge up any number of painful experiences, I got to sit every week while Diane did her magic. I did have to participate in some “meditation” (which was a bit like tree hugging for me) but it worked! I don’t know why, I don’t even want to know why, it just did. I’m now converted and every opportunity I get, I recommend anyone to give it a go.
I can honestly say it has been decades since I have felt this calm, peaceful, relaxed and free. I have tools, very easy ones, to bring me back to this state if I need to, my mind is no longer racing off on some wild tangent that I can’t control, I can make basic practical decisions again without fearing the consequences and I have Diane to thank. I whole heartedly recommend anyone that is looking for that magic fix to give this a go. It’s a wonderful experience.

What do you do/see now that you didn’t do/see before?
“I am learning to be kinder to myself”.
What has changed in your life?
“Taking time to think before I react . A change in my internal dialogue to be more like a friend rather than self-criticising”.
What specific results have you enjoyed, and what did you find the most useful?
“I have found all the material useful, as it was all new to me”.
What would you say to someone thinking of doing this program?
“I would recommend this program to have a better understanding of the mind and how it works and a different perspective on stress and how to manage it.”
The techniques, tools and words of wisdom she taught me have helped significantly with my day to day life of being a busy working mum. I have pages of beautifully organised notes to refer back to and I am extremely grateful for Diane for organising such a fabulous course.
I would highly recommend the course to anyone who feels the business of their life has taken over and to anyone wanting to live the best life they can while still keeping up with those day to day commitments and chores!
I thoroughly enjoyed the program and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to reduce stress and live a more fulfilling life.
I am very grateful to have had the chance to experience and learn and would thoroughly recommend the course to anyone.
I have learnt some skills to regain control if I start feeling distressed, and skills to try and release stress.
I enjoyed the scientific base of knowledge behind the course, and Diane’s commitment to continuing learning and investigation. Just remember, be kind to yourself!!
