  • skills to overcome panicky feelings,
  • and tips to getting a good night’s sleep.


This programme includes six modules which will be broadcast at scheduled times for 3 weeks. Each module will be broadcast 4 times (2pm and 8.30pm Mondays/Tuesdays or on Thursdays/Fridays).


Go to and subscribe at no cost to the Youtube channel so you will be updated when the next module will be broadcast.


At this very challenging time Stress Control is a proven and effective way to improve mental wellbeing.

This is the second roll out of these online classes following great feedback and engagement from the public and staff.


The initial programme had an average audience of circa 6,500 viewers tuning into each session from across the UK and Ireland. Encouragingly 62% of viewers were Irish, represented across all ages from 18 to 65 years old. The majority of participants were in the 35 – 64 year old age group. Women represented 75% of participants. Overall, these metrics demonstrated the interest and engagement with the programme among the Irish public.
