What is StressLess coaching?

StressLess coaching will teach you about mindfulness, dealing with difficult thoughts and emotions, the balance between acceptance and change, and working towards your values. It’s based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), in Finland abbreviated HOT, and works as early intervention.
