Managing Anxiety Course

Posted on November 22nd, 2019

 

During our summer survey, we received a lot of feedback about the limited resources to mental health issues for our patients. It’s been estimated that one in 3 people experience problems with anxiety and nearly 50% of all people diagnosed with depression are also diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.

This is why we are pleased to now be able to offer a new course with one of the Wellbeing Service’s Psychological Practitioners. These sessions are targeted to those who have anxiety and would like to learn how to better manage it.

Anxiety can affect us in a few different ways. it can be physical (heart racing, sweating, shaking, breathlessness), behaviours you do (avoiding situations or activities) or manifest in the thoughts you have (worrying, predicting worse case scenarios).

 

The sessions will focus on how anxiety manifests, how to recognise if you’re having an anxiety attack and methods of relieving your anxiety. You may benefit from the Managing Anxiety course if:

·  you are suffering from mild-moderate anxiety

·  you would liked to improve your understanding of anxiety

·  you would like tools and techniques on managing anxiety

·  you would like to learn and share similar experiences

·  you need a course that fits around your day

 

The first course will be on January 14th, 2020 and will take place every Tuesday for 5 weeks between 17:30-19:30 at Newtown Centre, Huntingdon, PE29 3RJ.

If you would like to attend a session with a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, then please get in contact with the team at 01480 445243 or email at pwshunts@cpft.nhs.uk
