Resilience Training and Stress Management 


Learning skills to manage stress effectively can help you and your team thrive, without burning out. In my stress management training programs for organizations, I share science-backed practical strategies to help your team understand and manage both work-related and personal stress. Drawing on my resilience research conducted at Harvard Medical School, and years of experience teaching stress management through my work as a mindfulness teacher and clinical psychologist, this training will help your team build well-being into daily life at work and home. Training is personalized to your needs. I typically cover topics such as: 

  • The science of stress and resilience

  • Good stress versus bad stress 

  • An introduction to mindfulness 

  • How to meditate

  • Mindful communication skills

  • Self-compassion for a good night's sleep 

  • How to build more meaning into your working week

Mindful Self-Compassion Training: 8 Week Course

Many people find it far easier to be kind to others than to themselves. If you value other people's needs above your own, put self-care at the bottom of the priority list, self-sabotage or use harsh language towards yourself, then you might benefit from self-compassionate training. The 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion course is an evidence-based course developed by Dr Kristin Neff (University of Texas) and Dr Christopher Germer (Harvard Medical). The course is known to help boost self-compassion, and reduce psychological symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress. The course includes coverage of the science of self-compassion, guided meditations, activities designed to increase self-compassion, and group discussion in a supportive environment with like minded peers. 

Medicare rebates are available to subsidize course attendance, with a referral from your GP. 

The course will run over 8-weeks (Wednesday nights in Carlton) commencing in approximately late February 2020. The course also includes a half-day self-compassion retreat. Course facilitators are Dr Lydia Brown and expert mindfulness facilitator Jossy Jimenez (
