Event description


Anxiety is our body's way of saying: "Hey, I am experiencing way too much stress and I don't like it" and this happens to the best of us. But when these feelings of always being on alert doesn't leave you, then it's time to seek help.

This is a proven, practical and engaging 4-hour workshop where you will learn how to reduce down the severity of stress symptoms and leave with knowledge and a 'tool kit' of self-care resources to regain a sense of peace and harmony in your life.

What to expect from this workshop:

  • Information on how Mindfulness can rewire the brain (neuro-plasticity) for self-regulation and self-transformation.

  • Mindfulness practices to deal with Anxiety and overwhelming Stress.

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques to help you make sense of overwhelming problems/fears/worrying and deal with them more effectively.

  • Relaxing Meditations to Calm the Mind.

  • Techniques to disengage from the narrative of negative thought patterns, which cause Anxiety.

  • Powerful and practical Positive Psychology strategies so you can move beyond surviving to flourishing.

** Many people can feel alone and disconnected when experiencing overwhelming Anxiety. So to help you feel secure, expect a safe, non-judgemental and supportive space where you can choose to either connect with others and share your experiences or just enjoy the opportunity to learn, relax and enjoy the afternoon.

This workshop is delivered by a health professional, Julie McDonald and her courses are always taught with compassion, engagement and wisdom from her almost 40 years of personal practice of meditation, mindfulness and as a therapist.
