HANDLE STRESS AND REACT TO CRISIS LIKE A PRO
EVIDENCE-BASED STRESS AND RESILIENCE COACHING PROGRAM
Developed from the needs of the Finnish Special Unit. Scientifically proven by high level researchers.
Imagine being able to handle stress and react to crisis like a professional. What if obstacles and challenges would not burden you the same way they used to but you would learn from them and even get stronger?
Three high level stress researchers; a Canadian professor of psychology, a former operative commander of the Finnish Special Unit and an American psychiatrist put together their collective experiences and built a unique stress and resilience coaching method, the URSUS Program.
The URSUS Program coaching method was previously used only by the Special Unit, top level executives and other professionals. Now for the first time the method is available for everyone online. The method works undeniably in extreme circumstances and therefore even better in everyday stress management.
The 10 week URSUS Program will teach you how to use your attention, body, thoughts and emotions to handle stress more effectively, adaptively and sustainably.

10 week program starts on August 12 with a live webinar.
You can participate in the URSUS Program from any country.
The coaching is available to you for 100 days.
All the tools you need to reduce the negative effects of stress.
These three high level stress researchers have collected their tactical, psychological and clinical experiences together and put together a program built on their unique experiences.
This program will teach you simple and effective techniques to help your attention, body, thoughts and emotions work as a well-functioning, internal team.
This completely unique and first of its kind method is available for the first time for everyone online.
TRUSTED BY PROFESSIONALS
Dr. Harri Gustafsberg worked for over 20 years in the Finnish Special Unit. As an operational commander, he wanted to understand why they kept making mistakes and lost their situational awareness during critical operations. The reason was stress reaction.
He realized how little he knew about the mind-body connection and handling stress in extreme situations. He developed a scientifically proven coaching method together with high level stress researchers and the Special Unit.
The method works undeniably in extreme circumstances and therefore even better in everyday stress management. With this method one will reach their full potential - no matter the situation.

"I worked for 12 years in the Finnish Special Unit, and the last years as an Operational Commander. After URSUS training I was able to adjust my own physiology and emotional state to the level that the task required. I was also able to decrease the increased stress level which leads to higher performance, perception and better decision making
I could also raise my alertness when it lowered on long lasting missions. Knowing my own physiology and body better improved the recognition of mind-body connection.
Now after practicing URSUS method for longer it has become a part of me. When my body alerts me of increased stress levels, I automatically start to adjust my own physiology unconsciously. This skill has helped me to perform better on difficult tasks and recover faster from strenuous work. My overall awareness, situational awareness and focus have increased and sharpened."
"The Ursus Program gave me great tools for both working and personal life. Now I can manage pressure and stressful situations better. The education expanded my aspects and thoughts about things. I also noticed how extensively stress management helps us in different areas and situations. I would go over the program anytime again and I highly recommend it.”

Thank you Harri, Joe, Judith and Teemu!"
"I have always been interested in the human mind and how we humans react in different situations. Inspired by this, I started the URSUS program to educate myself more. A year and a half later, I can say that it has definitely been one of the best investments of my life. I knew I was going to get a lot of hard facts, but I never expected how much it could shape me as a person - in a positive way. This is not only my experience - I have received many praises from my family, my company’s Board of Directors and many others after going through the program. I absolutely recommend the professionalism of these coaches!"
