What's involved?

The Wellbeing Course is a clinically-proven treatment that helps adults aged 26-65 improve their psychological health and overcome symptoms of depression and anxiety. It consists of five lessons over an eight-week period and provides the information and skills that you would normally receive from a mental health professional. You can choose to receive weekly therapist support during the course, or you can choose to contact us when you need to.

The course aims to help people break unhelpful habits and learn the following core psychological skills:

  • How to recognise the cycle of symptoms involved in anxiety and depression
  • How to recognise and challenge unhelpful thoughts and beliefs
  • How to recognise and manage physical symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • How to gain confidence by learning to safely confront things you have been avoiding
  • How to stay well once the course has finished
