Anxiety Aid: Coping in the time of coronavirus

It's normal to feel worry and anxiety sometimes, especially at this difficult time. But if fear is really holding you back, this free online course could help.

Anxiety Aid: Coping in the time of coronavirus is a free online course for Bath students struggling to keep worry and anxiety in check.

Over four two-hour sessions, we’ll help you manage your anxiety so that it doesn’t rule your life. Based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), the course will teach a wide range of practical, down-to-earth ideas and techniques that can make your anxiety more manageable now – and help you make positive changes in the longer term.

The course comprises four sessions. It takes place on the Microsoft Teams videoconferencing platform. To take part, you will need to be in a quiet, private place where you won’t be disturbed.

This is not group therapy; we don’t expect you to share if you don’t feel comfortable with that. But we do encourage you to try out the suggested ideas and exercises.

Who is it for?

The course is for those struggling with mild to moderate anxiety, including if it’s been caused or made worse by the coronavirus crisis. If your anxiety is severe, we recommend you contact one of the University’s Wellbeing Advisers or arrange an initial consultation with the Counselling and Mental Health team.
