Anxiety Management

A 5-week course which aims to support people in a peer support setting who are experiencing anxiety or excessive worry to manage their symptoms. Anxiety is a feeling of worry or fear, often about things that have happened in the past or things that are expected to happen in the future. Whilst it is normal to feel anxious from time to time, sometimes anxiety can be longer term and can have a negative impact on your life. This course will support you to learn about what anxiety is, and to practise helpful coping strategies to help manage it through a range of ‘bottom- up’ (body to mind) and ‘top-down’ (mind to body) approaches.

August 2024, In-Person (afternoons)

Wednesdays from 2 – 4pm (Starting 21 August 2024) 

Stress Management

A 4-week course which aims to support people who are experiencing stress to identify and manage their symptoms. Stress is a normal emotional response to difficult situations, and everyone experiences stress in their lives. However, we need to recognise when symptoms become too frequent, too intense or prolonged as stress affects people emotionally, physically and psychologically and can lead to anxiety and mood disorders. This course will support you to learn what stress is, what it looks like for you and how you can use techniques to build resilience.

Wednesdays from 2 – 4pm (Starting 17 July 2024) 

August 2024, Online (Weekends)

Saturdays from 10am – 12noon (Starting 24 August 2024) 

Keep Yourself Well

A 7-week course where individuals will join a group of peers to create their own personalised ‘Keep Well’ plan which they will take home and use to keep well and to understand themselves and their wellness needs better. Participants are expected to have some self-help techniques in places already and to be willing to engage in group discussions about recovery. To get the most from this course, we ask that participants are prepared to set aside some time at home each week to complete some of the activities included in their personal workbook (which will be provided in the first session).
