Exploring Anxiety & Depression online

This is a self-help support group for people suffering from anxiety or depression.

Each session of this friendly and non-judgemental group includes a short talk and a discussion where you can share what you think with a small group of people just like you. Professional and experienced speakers help us look at many aspects of anxiety and depression and at various ways of improving these conditions.

The course seeks to provide fresh perspectives in a supportive atmosphere but does not provide counselling or therapy.
 
This course will take place on 9 consecutive MONDAY evenings in the comfort of your own home. We begin at 7pm and end at 9pm. The course costs £10, is based on Christian principles and is open to everybody.

The next course starts on Monday, 21 September 2020. To register & book your place (for over 18s only) click on this link. Please note that transfers and cancellations are accepted up to 24 hours prior to the start of the course.

Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t think I could talk about it. Do I have to talk?
You don’t have to say anything if you don’t want to. We provide a very safe space in which people can talk but it is always their choice.
 
Can I leave before the end of the course if I want to?

Yes, you can leave at any time and we will not chase you.
 
Do I have to go to church in order to come?

Not at all. We welcome everybody from any background. It is not a religious course in any way.
 
I can’t make all the sessions. Does that matter?

We know people have family and other commitments; just come to as many as you can. We can always send you the notes.
