Working with Clients with Anxiety:  A simple model for helping your clients overcome Anxiety and Overwhelm

 

 

About The Workshop

Angela presents a simple, evidence-based model that clients can easily relate to

  • This model is a helpful way to introduce clients to relevant neuro-science and psycho-physiology in terms they can easily understand and make use of
  • Integrates well with a wide range of counselling modalities
  • The approach is very practical – Angela will demonstrate how she uses this model in a counselling session in a way that is ‘experience near’ for clients, helps them to understand they’re not going crazy and are not ‘broken’, and introduces them to practical strategies they can integrate into their daily lives
  • This model weaves in very effectively with creating a practical ‘Wellbeing and Resilience Action Plan’ with your clients over successive sessions (sample format provided).

Target Audience:  Counsellors, Social and Community Workers, Youth Workers, Educators, Pastoral-care  Workers, Nurses, and other allied professionals.

Comments from previous ‘Working with Clients With Anxiety’ workshop   “Well organised and presented material.  Easy to absorb, well-paced and generous sharing of your resources and knowledge.”   “The practical suggestions for working with anxiety were a useful addition to my toolkit as well as for taking care of myself.” (Garry, Fieldworker)   “Great to watch your interview with a client (role-play) and teaching at the whiteboard.  Clear, practical, information, strategies and techniques to change my practice positively.” (Shirley Jourdain, Counsellor)

A comment from a lecturer who showed one of Angela’s videos (presenting this model) to her class.  “…My colleague H…was ‘blown away’ by your presentation on stress and the mind. He’s heard some of that information from other sources, but never so well collated and exemplified. He said it should be a TED talk. He (and I) are deeply grateful for you letting us hear the talk.” 

Registration includes: lunch, handouts, plus six week’s access to video presentations from Angela’s latest on-line courses –  ‘The Defrag Action Plan’ and ‘The Upward Spiral Action Plan which cover many of the key concepts from this workshop.
