Stress Management

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kingston Family Health Team has suspended all in person programs until further notice as part of our efforts to protect the health of the community. We appreciate your understanding during this time.

Thank you.


This 6 session educational workshop is for those who want to learn practical techniques for managing stress. Participants will learn about the nature of stress, how it affects them, and the health benefits of stress management. They will be guided through techniques of relaxation, self-care and develop an awareness of how thought patterns can contribute to, or alleviate stress. Participants will learn to use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy techniques to modulate their stress response.
