Stress Coach U

The Stress Coach U self-study web course trains coaches, educators and healthcare providers to use and teach concrete stress reduction techniques to clients, students and patients. Real success and optimal health require effective stress management. Unhealthy stress is an obstacle that slows and often blocks us and those we serve from reaching our professional and personal goals. Distress makes change, job searches, leadership, performing and wellness even more challenging, while triggering behaviors and habits that hinder weight loss, smoking cessation, relationships and earning power. The 4-5 hour Stress Coach U course teaches easy-to-practice exercises that increase the effectiveness of our work, and the efforts of our clients, students and patients, by smoothing and removing stress that impedes goal achievement.

“I found the Stress Coach U course very beneficial on both a personal and professional level. It was clear from the beginning that Jordan is very knowledgeable, informed and experienced in the area of stress management and he professionally and articulately delivered the programme. I really enjoyed and benefited from the course and I look forward to applying the tools and techniques taught on both myself and with my clients. Thank you Jordan!”
