Stress, low mood and anxiety can affect many people at different times in their lives. Sometimes life can be very difficult. We might feel low due to bereavement or anxious and stressed due to having money problems, or having to attend a job interview. Although we often cannot change the life experiences we go through, we can change how we react to these experiences and we can learn how to manage our mood.
Anxious minds provides support for people who are experiencing difficulties with depression or anxiety. This online course has been designed to be used either as self-help, or in conjunction with attending one of our one day CBT Skills Training Workshops.
The aim of this course is to introduce you to a number of tools that will help you build up your own “tool bag” which will give you some skills to manage your mood. The tools covered in this course are based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which will be explained later on in the course.
You will notice as you read through the course that there are a number of exercises for you to complete which will help you learn the CBT tools. Try and work through the exercises and perhaps spend more time on those that seem more useful to you and your problems and remember that as with any skills, the tools may need some time to learn and practice!
