Our online courses are designed to help doctors develop proven strategies to reduce stress, avoid burnout and bring more joy to their working day.

You can do the Shapes Toolkit online in two different ways. As the Beat Stress and Thrive! Course and membership community for individual doctors, or through a Shapes Toolkit Mastermind Online Group which can be commissioned by training hubs, federations and other organisations.

Online course 1 – Beat stress and thrive

What’s it all about?

Do you feel like you are…

  • overwhelmed by the demands expected of you?
  • using all your strength and mental energy just to survive the day job?
  • lacking the headspace to take control and pay attention to your own wellbeing?
  • on the edge and are one crisis away from not coping?

This course is a 4-week programme consisting of online modules. You will complete weekly assignments, take part in online group discussions and have focussed one-to-one coaching.

It is specifically designed for General Practitioners managing patient wellbeing and safety under the pressure of limited time and resources.

Here’s what we cover over the four weeks:

Week 1| Take control of your wellbeing: Look after your biggest asset

Week 2| Take control of your workload: Prioritise your time

Week 3| Take control of your work-life: Work better and smarter

Week 4| Take control of your future: Make the choice to do what you love

On top of the online webinar time, you also get access to our membership community which gives you:

  • Access to a private Facebook group, where you can connect with fellow students
  • One group coaching call and one webinar per month – a total of 24 extra CPD hours per year!
  • An email “hotline” to submit your questions and send feedback
  • A directory of handouts and practical tools
