Help your clients gain control over their fears and worries

Who is it for?

This module is suitable for adults (18 years +) who experience extreme worrying and anxiety over everyday matters.

What is the module about?

The module is step 2 IAPT compliant using low intensity CBT and follows the NICE guidelines. This module is made up of 6 sessions as well as a ‘Welcome’ session. The sessions are designed to teach the client how to gain control over his or her fears and worries. In each session the client receives psycho-education, reads about the experiences of example clients and practises with one or more exercises. The exercises focus on challenging the metaworries with thought schemes and behavioural experiments and learning how to relax.
