No-one has been untouched by this crisis and many of us are struggling with anxiety during these times of constant change.  If you are struggling with your sleep, your concentration, spiralling thoughts then we would like to help you.


The Schools Counselling Partnership are offering a 6-week online programme to help you understand and manage your anxiety.  During this programme you will gain:


  • A good understanding of excessive worry (Generalised Anxiety Disorder)
  • An understanding of how worry can be maintained and the links between our thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and behaviours
  • Knowledge of several techniques which can be used to help reduce your anxiety and worry
  • Awareness of your early warning signs for anxiety and have a plan in place to maintain progress and manage setbacks.


If you would be interested in participating please contact Toni Medcalf,

E-mail: and she will send you full details.
