Coping with Anxiety

Many people need a little extra support in strengthening their ability to tackle the stress and anxiety that builds up in daily living. For those wishing to move forward on this journey, our Coping With Anxiety workshop is an ideal starting point.

Participants learn how to acknowledge, understand, and manage their anxiety. They discover how to recognise the triggers, and then mitigate the physical and emotional impact that can ensue. There is also the ability to learn about some of the less healthy coping strategies sometimes relied upon and how to replace these with healthier alternatives.

By the end of the workshop, they will have a useful toolbox of strategies that enable them to develop healthy habits for tackling the stresses from which they suffer.

The Workshop:

  • Draws upon both theoretical understandings of anxiety and well-evidenced therapeutic techniques such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and mindfulness
  • Highlights the many triggers individuals can experience, and the emotional and physical impact these can have
  • Focuses on some of the specific societal and lifestyle pressures that can contribute to anxiety
  • Discusses some of the unhealthy coping strategies sometimes relied upon by some, and looks at ways to replace these strategies with healthy, long-term alternatives
  • Highlights the importance of physical wellbeing and offers useful tips on healthy lifestyle habits that have a positive effect on anxiety levels, including sleep, diet, and exercise

The workshop does involve working in small groups to consider ways to put theory and strategies into practice. However, participants are free to share as much or as little as they feel comfortable sharing with others.
