Anxiety therapeutic group

Group Therapy: The ABCs of Anxiety

You don’t have to go through anxiety on your own. 

In this therapeutic support group, you can talk about your feelings and experiences with anxiety in a healing group setting. You will engage in therapeutic activities and monitor therapeutic change. 

The group is facilitated by a mental health therapist. There will be maximum of 7 participants in a group. 

Who can attend?

Anyone aged 18 or over, who is looking to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms of anxiety and steps to change areas that you wish to change. 

An official diagnosis of anxiety is not necessary. 

What will I learn?

  • Gain an understanding of anxiety 
  • Identify common physiological responses that are associated with anxiety
  • Understand what level of functional impairment constitutes a clinical disorder
  • Understand how to make changes to break the cycle of anxiety
  • Develop an action plan to begin moving out of anxiety
