Tools for Your Anxiety Toolkit: rewiring the anxious brain

Presenter: Angela Baker and Tony Yuile
Angela and Tony 2018Anxiety 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.

By the end of this workshop you will be able to:
  • Discuss anxiety and stress in ways that are easy for your clients to understand
  • Support your client in taking agency for change and seeing a range of possible avenues for change
  • Empower your clients and equip them with a range of effective, easy to use tools and techniques to rewire their anxious brains
The workshop has been developed for counsellors, life coaches, business / success coaches, health-care and social service professionals who work with, or treat, people who may be suffering with anxiety. The day offers the chance to gain life skills that can benefit anyone who experiences anxiety or stress, including us, as professionals!

Angela Baker is a counselling psychologist and wellbeing coach, Tony Yuile is a performance and wellbeing coach and clinical hypnotherapist. Their particular area of expertise is in helping people to perform under pressure, overcome anxiety and manage stress. Both Angela and Tony are trained in Neuro-Linguistic Programming and have experience in applying other brain-based therapies. Tony is author of: '7 Ways to Reduce Anxiety in 7 Minutes or Less' and Angela is the developer of the on-line courses 'Mindfulness for Everyday Life', 'The Defrag Action Plan' and 'The Upward Spiral Action Plan'.
