Anxiety is regularly the most searched for term by people who are looking for a counsellor/therapist, and a very common presenting issue in the counselling room. Very often, clients present with a diagnosis of anxiety and want to be rid of unpleasant feelings and experiences that are symptomatic of anxiety. This training will explore anxiety from a person-centred perspective. 

Learning outcomes

This training will help participants:

  • Explore what we mean by anxiety and when this becomes problematic.
  • Gain an understanding of how we might understand anxiety in the context of person-centred theory.
  • Reflect on medical and social models of mental health and their influence on therapeutic approaches, and what person-centred practice can offer people who experience anxiety.
  • Consider the use of strategies and techniques for coping and their place in a person-centred approach.
