Anxiety Management

This course offers techniques and coping strategies to manage symptoms of anxiety.

Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life. You may feel worried and anxious about sitting an exam or attending a job interview - during times like these, feeling anxious can be perfectly normal.

However, some people find it hard to control their worries. Their feelings of anxiety are more constant and can often affect their daily life.

Appropriate for panic, agoraphobia, social anxiety, worries, OCD and health anxiety, this Anxiety Management course introduces the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy model and offers an understanding of what anxiety is, what causes it and how to manage it.

The course offers techniques on managing physical symptoms through breathing/relaxation techniques, challenging negative thoughts, managing worries, identifying safety behaviours and avoidance, and communication styles, as well as providing tips on improving sleep and diet.

This course runs weekly and every session lasts for two hours. You can book a place on this course by calling 01752 435419 or emailing plymouthoptions@nhs.net.
