Help I think I'm anxious
Because of social norms in society today, a lot of people express symptoms of anxiety without actually realising that it's anxiety.
- Feeling the need to control everything.
- Not being able to tolerate uncertainty.
- Not knowing how to let yourself rest.
If this is you, the 'Help I think I'm Anxious' group will be a perfect option for you.
You will have six two-hour group sessions, every week on a Wednesday evening. You will also be given a complimentary "Trusted Friend Therapy Journal" upon enrolment, which is yours to keep (RRP £35).
It is a more cost-effective option than one to one therapy, giving you the opportunity to learn more about your anxiety and how it affects you and learn tools and coping strategies, as well as learn from other group members.
Anxious about being in a group setting? This is completely normal and most people are at the thought of meeting new people. There will only be a maximum of eight people per group to try and limit this, and once you sign up, we will have an initial call to answer any questions you may have and to help ease your anxieties.
Beyond the initial meeting, it will be a closed group, and it can actually be quite supportive and reassuring to be on the same journey with the same group of people. It is an invaluable experience.
The group is a recurring group, so if you miss one cycle, you will be put on the waiting list for the next.
Whilst it is a more cost-effective option than one to one therapy, I appreciate that financial difficulties can sometimes be a barrier. I am happy to discuss a payment plan option with you if this is the case - for example paying weekly (£34 a week) or on payday. It is no bother. Please do not let shame, even around finances, be a hindrance to accessing support.
