Learn to press the “PAUSE” button on your Anxiety

Men's Health Week

Learn to press the “PAUSE” button on your Anxiety.



Hey man, it is time to talk about your emotions.


PCI College is engaging with Men's Health  Week and for this period, we are offering this free workshop just for all our male friends, partners and family members who are not open about their feelings.


We have a question: is anxiety holding you back in your life?  Are you fed up firefighting anxiety symptoms?


Anxiety is very common in society today.  While Anxiety is a natural response to danger, threat, or fear, it can feel overwhelming, crippling, filling us with dread. When we become fearful or anxious, the brain signals a stress response that releases stress hormones, flooding the body in preparation for defence, known as the fight, flight, freeze response. This practical workshop will help you to understand the importance of activating the relaxation response, as part of your anxiety management, self-care programme.  The arrival of Covid-19 has amplified the anxiety response to fear. We are unique individuals and each of us react differently to stressful situations in our lives. 


We have access to so much technology in the world, however, knowing is not enough, the brain needs to experience new learning, for change to occur.
