Dr Miriam Maisel
Dr. Miriam Maisel is one of the few non-US doctors who are certified to offer the Stress Management and Resiliency Training programme. This is an 8 week research proven programme which is based on decades of research by Dr Herbert Benson and others at the Harvard based Benson Henry Institute. Participants learn about stress mechanisms, and learn and practice stress recognition, as well as a variety of relaxation techniques, and over the 8 weeks, also learn how to integrate these new skills into everyday life. Stress management is one of the 6 pillars of Lifestyle Medicine and is crucial to our own health and well being. In addition, many medical conditions are exacerbated by stress, and those of us who treat patients will learn some news skills with which we can help our patients.

Here are some testimonials from participants:
"I have thoroughly enjoyed the online SMART course with Miriam. Miriam is a true expert in this field and it has been such a pleasure to learn more about different stress management techniques and how to put them into practice in every day life - for personal use and for the benefit of my own patients. Taking part in this course has allowed me to understand the importance of and prioritise rest, relaxation and resiliency training in my own life and I have seen the benefits already. Thank you Miriam for such a wonderful opportunity to improve my personal lifestyle routines and enhance the care I deliver to my patients."

"As a practising GP and Lifestyle Medicine doctor, I found the S.M.A.R.T. course to be an excellent "hands-on" course, focusing on recognition of early signs of stress. More importantly, it has taught me various techniques on reducing stress, which will be extremely valuable to me in my medical practice in addressing stress in my patients. I will also take this knowledge to my daily personal and family life. Miriam makes everyone feel at ease and the course has a very relaxed atmosphere for discussions and sharing our experiences. At the same time, Miriam is an excellent facilitator and she will make sure that you as a participant, will make the most of your valuable time during this Course."
