At Next Step Psychology & Counselling we exist to help the broken and the hurting. So a natural evolution to this is that we would begin Education and Training programs to support and consolidate what happens in session and in your world. We hope you enjoy and get genuine value out of what we have on offer ... we hope you feel encouraged to step towards the best version of yourself.

Anxiety feels intimidating, and if you’re anything like me, it’s frustrating figuring out where to get help! I wanted to learn how to Overcome Anxiety, but I had no experience and no clue where to start. (This may surprise you, but Overcoming Anxiety skills are a not a prerequisite for most careers here at Education for Life.) You may be wondering:

  • Where do I start?
  • How much time will it take to overcome the anxiety?
  • Will this work for me?
  • Why do I need to spend this amount of money?
  • And most of all....why can't I get rid of this ANXIETY RIGHT NOW?! 😢
When I first started out, I knew I wanted to get an understanding of how to Overcome Anxiety ... Permanently. I was determined to learn how to understand anxiety from the ground up and to nail it so it doesn't come back. I also wanted to add to my skills as a person and use it day to day to help people, so we had no time for fails.

But now that I've done all the research and practice, my clients come to me regularly to learn how to Overcome anxiety. In fact, I've been practicing for so long that I decided to create this course to share with you.

Here's what we'll cover.

By the end of this course, students will be confident to Overcome Anxiety. You’ll be able to breath easier.
