The Physical and Psychological Effects of Stress

The Physical and Psychological Effects of Stress

Free Stress Management Talk with Fiona Worthington and Dermot Burke

Thursday 29th June 7-8.30pm

Did you know that stress can affect us physically as well as psychologically? In modern life, stress is more common than you would perhaps think. For this reason, the Putney Clinic is holding a free stress management workshop on Thursday 29th June. The talk will be led by our resident Clinical Hypnotherapist, Fiona Worthington, and Physiotherapist, Dermot Burke. They will offer suggestions to ease the physical and psychological effects of stress. In addition to this, they will give practical advice on how you can take better care of yourself moving forward.


During the talk, Fiona and Dermot will cover a broad spectrum of stress-related topics, amongst which are:

  • The physiological effects of stress and The Biopsychosocial Model.
  • How stress can influence pain and our behaviour.
  • The physiological effects of exercise and movement.
  • Studies linking exercise, cognitive control and stress/health.
  • An explanation of what internal and external stressors are.
  • What triggers your personal stress?
  • Simple exercise and movement tips.
  • To finish off, we will have a relaxing group hypnosis/ breathing session.
At the end of the workshop, there will be a brief question and answer session. You are welcome to put any doubts and questions to the experts.


The talk is open to the general public and is free. However, due to limited space, booking is essential. To reserve your place, you can book online, in person at reception or by calling us on 020 8789 3881. Similarly, you can also book your place by sending an email on info@putneyclinic.co.uk.
