THE VENTING MACHINE
To highlight the pressures and stress felt by young accountants we’ve created a pop-up booth called ‘The Venting Machine’, which will be open – for one day only – from 7am-7pm on 12 November 2019 in Jubilee Place, Canary Wharf.
The booth is a sound-proof zone, giving you the chance to let off some steam.
Yell, rant or scream, and if you let off enough steam The Venting Machine will turn it into a personalised frothy coffee, your very own CABACCINO.
Whether you’re an accountant or a local London city worker, everybody is welcome!
Finding ways to manage your stress is essential. It is also worth addressing the root causes of your stress to try to manage the source rather than just treat the symptoms."
- Richard Jenkins, psychologist and spokesperson for CABA
We all face both pressure and stress in our personal and professional lives.
Pressure is when you feel something is now at stake, you feel there's some jeopardy, based on the results of your performance. Stress is when there are too many demands and you feel overwhelmed or are unable to cope.
Below you'll find a range of resources to help you identify your stress triggers and manage them effectively. Have a read, try them out, and find out what works for you.
Use our wellbeing booklet any time you start to experience those feelings of stress or pressure building up, or use the space to make your own notes, lists and plans.
Learning to understand your resilience and taking steps to build it will help you manage stressful situations better. Why not take a few minutes to find out how resilient you are with our short questionnaire.

We know from our own research that the UK is experiencing a work-related stress epidemic, with 4 in 10 workers close to 'breaking point'.
We also know that accountancy can be one of the most pressurised professions to be in, due to the fast-paced nature of the work and a demanding exam-based qualification regime.
Our Drop the Pressure campaign aims to highlight the pressures and stresses felt by young accountants and to help them find ways to manage.
