Anxiety Aid

All of us worry and feel fearful from time to time. That's entirely normal. But if anxiety is really holding you back, this four-week online course could help.

Anxiety Aid is a free online course for Bath students struggling to keep worry and anxiety in check.

Over four weekly 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.

Key topics we cover:

  • Common thought patterns and behaviours that keep us stuck.
  • Why worry is so compulsive and how to do less of it.
  • Setting goals so you can do more of what you want to do.
  • The art of living with uncertainty.

Sessions take place on Microsoft Teams. To participate, you'll 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 you have to be willing to have a go at the suggested exercises and techniques.

Who is it for?

The course is for those struggling with mild to moderate anxiety. If your anxiety is severe, we recommend you arrange an initial consultation.
