Manage and overcome your stress, panic, anxiety and lack of motivation

Guided self-help

After your Wellbeing Assessment, our therapist will provide you with some workbooks. These will explain the different tools and techniques you can use for things like improving your mood.

Guided self-help may also help if you’re having difficulty with stress, panic, anxiety or lack of motivation. 

Between your sessions you will be asked to follow a new section in your workbook and you will usually be asked to follow tasks and activities at home - such as a food or activity diary, setting goals and tasks, meditation or watching a video.

Your therapist will arrange regular call sessions with you, and talk through what you’ve been learning.

They’ll also set goals with you, and keep track of your progress. You can carry on with the learning activities at your own pace, and practice the different techniques in a space you feel most comfortable, such as your own home.
