This Managing Anxiety Training course provides ideas and techniques to help people to manage their anxiety, this includes belly breathing techniques, strengthening your resilience and ABC forms that help people to highlight how they felt and behaved during an anxiety-provoking event.
CBT, or cognitive behavioural therapy, can play a key part in helping people better manage anxious thoughts. Recognised by the NHS, here is how they describe the process:
"Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It's most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems." - NHS
When users complete our IOSH Approved course, we hope that they feel more confident in addressing uncomfortable or upsetting situations, so they can lessen the impact they have on them.
