Stress Less for Christmas

Stress Less for Christmas is a free one-off workshop for people who need support in the lead up to and during Christmas.


Who is it for?

Stress Less for Christmas is a workshop for anyone who feels overwhelmed during Christmas. This group workshop gives you the opportunity to develop skills, learn strategies to manage stress, and gain support from others who are feeling the same way.

What will it be like?

Christmas can be one of the most wonderful times of the year. For many of us, it can also be one of the most stressful, as we juggle the busyness or are forced to confront all kinds of difficult feelings around family and relationships. Some of us might even feel lonely during this time- whether surrounded by family or not.

This group workshop offers a safe, supportive environment where you can share your thoughts and ideas, and learn from others experiencing similar challenges. You will learn positive, practical approaches to manage overwhelming feelings around Christmas time. Participating in a group program is an effective way to gain the confidence to turn negative habits and cycles into positive ones, and manage strong emotions constructively.

Key outcomes

  • Clarify your problems.
  • Gain new perspectives.
  • Work through change.

How can it help me?

During the group sessions, you’ll have a chance to connect with others who have had similar experiences, to talk through their issues and to consider positive choices and strategies for the future.

The program can assist you in:

  • Understanding why you may be feeling this way
  • Use mindfulness techniques to reduce stress and improve your focus
  • Navigate difficult interpersonal relationships
  • Manage feelings of apprehension
  • Connect with helpful services and people
  • Increase your physical and mental welbeing.

During your sessions, you can also speak to your group facilitator about referrals to other programs, services or counselling which may benefit you.
