The ‘Overcoming Challenges to Wellbeing – One Small Step at a Time’ Series

 Many of us struggle with challenges such as depression, anxiety and low self-esteem, sometimes to a small degree, and for many, to a significant degree.  And over time, these challenges can turn into chronic problems.  Often we try many different things in an effort to get on top of these problems and yet  we just don’t seem to be able to make the progress we are seeking.

Angela’s approach to getting on top of such chronic problems includes

  • Identifying small, do-able steps
  • Learning to identify small steps of improvement and to pat ourselves on the back for small successes
  • Increasing our acceptance that we are ‘just human’ and that as humans we all have flaws and weaknesses, and that is O.K.
  • Increasing our self-compassion

Angela believes (and research supports this idea!) that being in groups and hearing about other people’s challenges, and both their struggles and their successes, can have significant benefits, and invites you to join her workshop/s and discover this for yourself.

These workshops are targeted to – those of you who experience some degree of anxiety, depression or low self-esteem.

The content of these workshops is likely to be useful to anyone, whether or not they experience significant wellbeing or mental health challenges because almost everyone, from time to time and to some degree, struggles with these issues.  The strategies offered in these workshops are applicable in many different situations.  So these workshops are open to anyone, but are more specifically designed for those with some degree of wellbeing challenge.
