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 free online course could help.

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

Over four weekly sessions of 90 minutes, we’ll help you manage your anxiety so it doesn’t rule your life.

Based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), the course teaches a range of down-to-earth techniques that can make your anxiety more manageable now – and help you make positive changes over the longer term.

Key topics we cover:

  • How the anxiety cycle operates and what you can do to disrupt it.
  • Simple techniques for calming the nervous system.
  • Ways of dealing with inaccurate or unhelpful thoughts.
  • What to do about worrying.
  • How to overcome avoidance and face fearful situations so you can do more of what matters to you.

Sessions are held on Microsoft Teams. To take part, you'll need to be in a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed.

This is not group therapy; we don’t expect you to share if you don’t want to. But you have to be willing to have a go at the suggested exercises and techniques.

Who is it for?

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


Past participants have reported benefits such as:

  • better understanding of anxiety and how to manage it
  • greater confidence
  • more optimism
  • relief from connecting with others
  • tools and techniques that make a difference.


The course is running on Wednesdays 7 July to 28 July 2021 inclusive from 12 noon to 1.30pm. There will also be a follow up session, date and time TBC.
