Overcoming Anxiety and Stress Course

This 4 week course is for people who are feeling anxious and stressed and want to learn practical ways of managing those feelings. You will learn what anxiety and stress are, why we have it, what we can do about it and how to manage it, how to control anxious thoughts, how to relax and how to change anxiety related behaviours. You will also learn about panic attacks, low mood and anxiety. The course is run much like an evening class, where the chairs face the front and the people at the front teach you all about anxiety and stress. It is not group therapy, we will not sit in a circle and you will not be expected to discuss your personal problems. No one will expect you to talk during the class, although you are welcome to ask questions.
