Anxiety in itself is not a bad thing, but when we’re feeling it too much and too often, anxiety can really start to weigh us down. It can impact our relationships and our motivation to do the things that are important to us or the things we enjoy, it can affect how we feel physically as well as emotionally, it can mess with our sleep, exhaust us and prevent us from living in the moment. In short, it can really impact our quality of life. Sometimes it can feel like there are so many emotional demands and things to be worried about that anxiety starts to become a common feature in our day to day. But, despite the challenges that life throws at us, it doesn’t have to be that way. Do a search online on anxiety statistics and you’ll quickly see that anxiety is causing problems for many, many people.
This 60 minute session is packed full of tips and tricks from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness approaches that can help us to manage the stress and anxiety stemming from the day to day demands of life – be that work, relationships, study, health, finances, the list goes on.
Suitable for those with or without experience of CBT and mindfulness, just bring yourself.
