Overcoming anxiety masterclass
I Know You Care
You became a therapist 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 your training course provider only gave you a brief overview of mental health problems and almost every client you are working with is feeling anxious right now
You are seeing anxiety presenting itself through panic attacks, school avoidance and emotional shut down or overwhelm
The tools you do have, work occasionally but you get the sense that there are more effective strategies that you could be using to make more lasting changes
More and more of your clients are not reaching the threshold for CAMHS and you want to provide the best possible care
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.
