What is it?
Overcoming Anxiety and Worry sessions are an opportunity for you to learn some helpful techniques to improve how you feel. These sessions are delivered by two NHS Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners who will help you learn techniques to overcome anxiety and worry. You will receive a free workbook to use throughout the sessions. The sessions often provide opportunities to meet others who may share similar feelings to you. This is not group therapy; you will not be asked to share your personal experiences with others.
IAPT is a service for adults and so if you are under 18 we recommend speaking to your GP about alternative options of help in your GP Practice.
What can I expect from these sessions?
There are a total of 4 sessions which are two hours long and run on a weekly basis with an option to book in for a 15 minute telephone review if you feel you need further support. If you are unable to attend the first session of your Improving Wellbeing Session, we recommend booking onto an alternative course as you will receive the most benefit from attending all 4 sessions.
We recommend booking only one wellbeing course at a time as some of the techniques may overlap. Our sessions work well with a minimum of 6 people booked on to them at the start of the sessions. In the rare circumstances a course would need to be cancelled, we would notify you immediately and support you in booking on the next available course.
