2 hours per week for Six Weeks
Week One Panic attacks and anxiety An understanding
Discusses the nature and most common symptoms of panic attacks, anxiety depersonalisation, derealisation and the major anxiety disorders. These are divided into different categories : fight and flight response, hyperventilation, dissociation and the effects of these symptom groups. When we can understand how and why our symptoms are occurring it enables us to work with them more efficiently so that we can take the POWER back. This session discusses the development of the secondary conditions such as agoraphobia, drug and / or alcohol abuse and depression.
Week Two : Meditation : Why, where, when & How !
Details the benefits of meditation, including relaxation, the development of Mindfulness skills and as a graded exposure technique for dissociative symptoms. The most common difficulties that people with an anxiety disorder have in being able to relax are also discussed. This session teaches people to meditate using one of three meditation techniques.
Week Three : Mindfulness : We are what we think
The practice of Mindfulness teaches us the intimate relationship between our thoughts and our panic and anxiety. Mindfulness also teaches us to see how our low self esteem and our need to be all things to all people also creates panic and anxiety. Using a Mindfulness cognitive technique, we are able to stand back and take charge of our thoughts rather than our thoughts taking charge of us ! 'Recovery with attitude"

Week Five : Recovery-The Process
This session looks at the process of recovery and the ongoing development of Mindfulness in relation to set backs, management of day to day stress, graded exposure and self esteem issues.
Week Four : Self Issues
Details the most common problems people with an anxiety disorder have in relation to 'Self'. This includes the need to be all things to all people, the inability to be assertive and low self esteem. If we don't understand these issues they can impact on and create subtle obstacles to full recovery. This session also discusses the various stages of acceptance of ourselves and our anxiety disorder enables us to have the POWER of it, rather than it having power of us.
