For more information about IHS Certificate in Stress Management at Institute of Health Sciences, please review the details below.

The IHS Certificate in Stress Management examines the sources and cumulative impact of both psychological and physical stressors – for example electromagnetic smog, over-exercise, over eating vs malnutrition and anxiety. It explores the Functional Medicine perspective on chronic and acute stress, its effects on the hormonal system, particularly the adrenal glands, plus diseases associated with stress.

This course is taught and written by experienced Health and Wellness Coaches, NLP practitioners and Nutritional Therapists working in the behavioural change and integrative healthcare fields and is particularly suited to healthcare professionals, or those in related fields. It provides a practical training in the physiological impact of chronic stress and evidence based integrative management techniques.

Students will be introduced to different tests (both biomedical and in-clinic) to assess the impact of stress on an individual, e.g. adrenal hormone profiles and stress analysis questionnaires, and review a variety of stress management techniques, exploring those that can be used in the moment and long term, including relaxation and breathing techniques, mindfulness, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), visualisation, self hypnosis and ‘desk yoga/massage’. A coaching focus runs throughout the course with students learning to identify and explore an individual’s challenges and stress triggers. They will develop skills in helping a client reframe and refocus, breaking the stress habit, exploring time management, accountability in stress management and making stress a positive. Students will explore dietary support for stress management, including stress inducing foods, the stress-allergy link, and foods and nutrients to support the nervous and endocrine systems.

Stress is one of the most significant contributing factors in the current chronic disease epidemic. In just 1 month, you will acquire a range of practical tools and strategies to support your clients in effectively managing their stress and to ultimately help grow your healthcare practice. The course will also offer tools and strategies to recognise and manage your own stress.

This module can be used as credit towards the IHS Diploma in Coaching and Behavioural Change, which offers healthcare professionals additional skills and strategies for growing your client base even further.
