Tools for Your Anxiety Toolkit: rewiring the anxious brain
Presenter: Angela Baker and Tony YuileAnxiety blights the lives of increasingly large numbers of people. It may initially be focused on realistic concerns – such as financial difficulties, health, job insecurity or unemployment, relationship problems (particularly complex in blended families) and fears about the future in an increasingly uncertain world – but then spiral out of control. Or it may have no clear cause and manifest as an ever-present feeling of being ‘wired’, tense or vulnerable, very often accompanied by out-of-control thoughts.
This highly practical workshop focuses on techniques and strategies, drawn from a number of brain-based therapies and backed by neuro-science that you can use to help your clients to regain control over their anxiety and stress levels. During the workshop you will have opportunities to practise the new skills and techniques yourself.
