Overcoming anxiety masterclass
We Know You Care
You became a teacher because you wanted to make a difference but right now it feels like you're being stretched outside of your comfort zone
You know the basics about anxiety and anxiety disorders but it doesn't feel like this is enough right now and almost every young person you are working with is feeling anxious right now
You're seeing anxiety presenting itself through panic attacks, school avoidance and emotional shut down
The tools you do have, work occasionally but you get the sense that there are more effective strategies that you could be using especially in the classroom
You feel like more of your students need additional support but many don't meet the threshold
I get it.
I have been there, researching for hundreds of hours trying to develop a toolkit that really works.
All of the strategies in this masterclass are evidence based using the latest science and neuroscience and are used in my therapy room every day.
What You'll Learn
How to spot the early warning signs in the classroom
Lesser known signs and symptoms of anxiety in the classroom including those linked to trauma
Language and labels of anxiety and the importance of teaching emotional literacy
How to support panic attacks
Anxious brain myths and why we DON'T have a reptile brain
How to make sense of school avoidance
My most effective in the classroom anxiety reducers and how to adapt these for any age
Listening skills strategies to enhance your toolkit including what to say when someone 'doesn't know'
Working with parents and carers
You will also receive a strategy video to watch as a replay and a downloadable resource pack using some of my favourite templates AND the most up to date apps, websites and books that can help with anxiety relief that you can share with parents and carers too.
Who I Am
I am a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy accredited counsellor and supervisor and specialise in anxious thoughts, anxiety disorders, worries and fears
I am an NLP coach, Thrive Childhood years practitioner and mental health awareness trainer, writing CPD accredited courses to teach people across the world about mental health problems and anxiety
Having lived with anxiety myself, I know how hard it can feel to reach out and ask for help. My dream is to help young people and the adults in their lives develop the strategies that I never had.
Everything I teach is what I have learned to help myself and to help the thousands of people I have worked with.
