Anxiety: a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe. Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point. Indeed the existential analytical point of view is that anxiety is considered to be a basic theme and natural condition of human existence.
In this 60 minute fast-paced, highly energised experiential workshop, as a group we will explore, share and create our shared definition of our personalised-collective experiences of anxiety.
Darren will then also share a few personal, and professional therapeutic examples, practical strategies, ideas and interventions for helping support our anxious experiences. With space for questions and reflections from the group – by the end of the workshop we will have created a shared understanding of anxiety, along with tools to manage, and resources for supporting ourselves, and those close to us professionally and personally.
