Course Description

Most of us experience anxiety at some point in our lives.  For many this is upsetting but manageable and related to real life situations or experiences and usually passes with time or as the situation resolves.  For some people, anxiety is constant, extreme and debilitating and it impacts significantly on their quality of life.

This course will explore what anxiety is, the many forms it can take and how it develops and is maintained.  It also explores a range of treatment options and self-help skills that may help people to lessen and manage anxiety.  A practitioner with expertise in the subject area and a peer trainer with lived experience of anxiety will share their knowledge and provide practical help in a supportive atmosphere.
