Life Stress Reduction (LSR) Workshop
4-day intensive workshop for mental health practitioners. 3-day option available to grads of the TIR-Essentials workshop.
Life Stress Reduction is a comprehensive approach to resolving the kinds of difficulties for which people usually seek counselling.
LSR helps clients face and deal with difficult aspects of their life piece by piece, releasing emotional charge and gaining relief and awareness.
The expected outcome of LSR is that the client is able to more successfully and happily engage in his/her life.
Issues that can be addressed with LSR include feeling overwhelmed, unhappy or guilty, indecisiveness, relationship distress, grief and loss, work pressure, and body image problems.

The Life Stress Reduction (LSR) is recommended for:
- Experienced counselling/mental health professionals and lay practitioners who aren’t satisfied with the methods they are using at present
