Dr Rebecca Williams
I have been working as a GP for over 20 years and I am offering workshops to help people recognise stress and deal with it in a healthy way.
I completed my preclinical medical training at Cambridge University, obtaining a first class degree, before moving to Oxford for my clinical training, based at the John Radcliffe Hospital. After positions in Oxford, Inverness and Edinburgh, I settled in the Scottish Borders for my GP training where I have been working ever since. Inspired by my work in General Practice I have developed a special interest in anxiety and stress management.
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Are you losing sleep? Are you struggling to cope?
I can help you feel in control again!
Even if life doesn't feel too bad at the moment, I can help you identify behaviours and thinking patterns which can predispose you to stress. Making changes proactively will help you maximise your physical and mental health, reducing the potential effects of stress in the future.
CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC: During these extremely challenging times, many people are struggling with anxiety and stress, a normal reaction to the circumstances they face but with the potential to impact negatively on their physical and mental health. It is very important to manage our anxieties and stress so that we don't become overwhelmed. I have designed a webinar to help people reflect upon their own situation and to equip them with tools to help them cope. My book, 'Dealing with Stress: the Mind, Body, Spirit way' is a handy little book with a lot of useful information for times such as these.
I have enjoyed giving webinars on behalf of the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, Highland Spring Group, Hollis LLP, Morton Fraser LLP, Mirador Analytics Ltd., Down's Syndrome Scotland, Clare College (University of Cambridge) and Brasenose College (University of Oxford), amongst others.
I have also been proud to provide one on one consultations to NHS staff during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
The aim of my webinars, workshops and one-on-one support is to help people identify the pressures they are facing, recognise when they are feeling stressed and to empower them to be proactive in managing their stress.
I hope this approach will enable them to deal with the pressures in their lives in a more healthy way, with positive implications for them and for those around them.
