Who? This group Is for anyone who experiences anxiety regardless of the trigger (ie: school, social life, new situations). This group is for people who are interested in exploring their anxiety in a space where they can hear from other group members what their anxiety looks like and how they have learned to manage it while learning tangible, evidenced based skills and tools to manage their own anxiety.
What? Exploring Anxiety is a process group for members to talk about their anxiety, hear about others experiences, receive compassion and validation, show empathy, naming feelings, and learn and enhance coping tools to better manage their anxiety.
When? Every Wednesday from 2:30pm - 4pm. Group starts January 26, 2022.
Where? The meeting will have a recurring zoom link that will be sent before group starts.
Why? Process groups are supported by research for a wide range of concerns from attachment, depression, anxiety, stress to just about any aspect of mental health. The reason why group works is because the group setting mirrors issues of the real world – while providing a feeling of connection, validation, safety, support, and feedback.
How? Clients can be added to the group by their counsellor or by the intake workers. Danielle and Bryan, the group facilitators, will contact clients before group to give a warm welcome and to answer any questions.
*Group is closed to new members once it starts. Contact our Intake Coordinators at Counselling Services to be placed on a waitlist if you miss the deadline.
