This interactive webinar aims to provide you with some ideas and tools you can use to best manage your stress levels and retain a sense of inner calm.

Within this 1-hour session we will take time to consider what will work for you in your work and everyday life, as well as what you are able to commit to for the sake of your own well-being.

We will also cover:

  • What is stress?
  • The effects of short and longer-term stress


Along with how to better manage stress, including:

Top tips to managing how we feel are invaluable, and the minute meditation is achievable and also effective. This is definitely the one of the many learning points I took away with me.”

About the Trainer

Beckie Whitehouse has worked as a parish clerk for the last nine years, serving three separate yet distinct Parish Councils. She has trained and is qualified as a Life Coach and Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) practitioner. Her work has been with adults and young people.

The COVID-19 pandemic – with restrictions and lockdowns – added pressure to everyone at work, and personally. Many clerks work alone in a parish office or from home; this may have added to feelings of isolation and loneliness, which can have an adverse affect on mental health.

Beckie’s delivery during this practical, interactive session will provide top tips for maintaining mental well being, plus specific strategies for Clerks.
