Unique Approach

This programme is more than a training programme, it is a highly interactive process involving guided self-assessment which results in practical solutions that work and are uniquely relevant to each individual :- ‘It is your programme.’


Gráinne O’ Reilly affords each person considerable time & attention to get meaningful and personalised feedback.  She works in an enabling and inspiring way to get people to proceed through a carefully personalized strategic approach to Stress Management.


Gráinne also works with a heavy emphasis on providing practical, lasting and long-term solutions which will be in place long after her work is finished. She is emphatic about the necessity for good and well directed follow-up to any work done and maintains contact with clients for extended periods to guide them through the application of what they have learned.


As Stress is personal and individual (‘what is a delight for one may be distressing for another person’) this programme is conducted in one-to-one & class-room style with no interaction between participants i.e. we do not use group discussions, or role-play as part of the training.
