Anxiety and worry are normal, natural feelings but if we experience them too often and too powerfully they can have a negative impact on our lives and wellbeing.
• Do you feel overwhelmed by your fears and worries?
• Do you struggle with self-esteem and self-confidence?
• Would you like to understand more about anxiety and learn ways to cope with its impact on you?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has proven to be an effective treatment for anxiety. At its heart is the concept that thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and behaviour are all connected. Unhelpful thoughts and feelings can trap us in a vicious cycle which can make day to day events uncomfortable and difficult to navigate.
These sessions are designed to provide a safe space for you to explore your own anxiety and in which to provide tools and techniques to help you manage it.
One session in the block will focus on social anxiety specifically.
WHO MIGHT BENEFIT FROM THIS COURSE?
• Anyone who wants to learn ways to manage mild to moderate anxiety
• Anyone currently receiving counselling at LGBT Health
• Anyone on the waiting list for counselling at LGBT Health
This group will be run by Niamh Allen and Siobhan Tyrrell, two of our counsellors who are providing this course as part of their CBT qualification for Group Therapy.
If you are interested please contact Claire on claire@lgbthealth.org.uk by Friday 31st January. Use the subject line ANXIETY SUPPORT.
