Who is it for?

Experiencing occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. However if you frequently have intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations, this group is for you.

If you feel, these feelings of anxiety and panic interfere with daily activities, are difficult to control, are out of proportion to the actual danger, and you may avoid places or situations to prevent these feelings, the group can help.

Note: This course is not recommended for severe cases of anxiety or any case where there are other co-morbid conditions.
