Emotion Management Clinic

Mind-Care-collage2.png

Emotions are a part of every day life, and help us react to challenges in our lives. Sometimes, our emotions can get on top of us and it's hard to take back control. The key is to learn about your emotions and what they mean, so you can keep them in check and stay on top of life's challenges.

360's brand new Emotion Management Clinic is made up of a range of workshops designed to help you learn how to identify, understand and manage your emotions. 

Run by our expert, friendly team of clinical psychologists and psychologists, the workshops are delivered in a group setting, so you can learn and be supported by other people just like you.
 

The Emotion Management Clinic offers a range of one-off, 2 hour workshops covering a variety of topics:

 

Understanding Anger

Build skills around recognising and effectively managing anger, focussing on understanding what anger is, learning to recognise it and figuring out what to do instead.


Communicating with Confidence

Build assertiveness skills, which help you communicate in a clear, direct, respectful and honest way in difficult situations, plus develop an understanding of the different methods of communication and practise assertiveness. 
 

Mindfulness and Relaxation

By focusing our attention on what is happening in the present moment we can avoid getting caught up in our thoughts, fears or memories. Here we learn to incorporate mindfulness into our daily life to build resilience to stress and improve overall wellbeing.
 

Understanding Thoughts and Emotions

Make it easier to deal with feelings like sadness, depression, stress and anxiety by focussing on understanding what emotions are, exploring the emotions you experience and learning different strategies to help manage your moods.
 

Sleep and Activity for Wellbeing

When we are physically active and sleeping well our body feels healthier, our mind is more focused and we feel more balanced and optimistic. Here we educate on how mental and physical health are linked, as well as processes to promote healthy sleep to help the body repair itself and the mind be clear.  
 

We are also running an 8 week Introduction to Mindfulness Course (currently Guildford only)

 

Introduction to Mindfulness

Spend 2 hours each week learning the fundamentals of mindfulness to help maintain clarity of mind for reduced stress, anxiety and other mental health issues, as well as boosting performance and coping mechanisms.
