MINDFULNESS FOR ANXIETY
[display_title]
Don’t let uncontrollable worry hold you back.

About

We all have worries – they’re a normal part of life. But anxiety is a little more than that; it’s a roadblock. You literally cannot see past that fear or thought to the point where you quickly arrive at worst-case scenarios often manifesting in the physical form; panic attacks, breathlessness..… Ugh. It’s exhausting.

But you’re not alone. Over two million Australians* suffer anxiety every year – many undiagnosed. And one of the biggest defences against anxiety is actually a tool that’s available to you at any given time and is completely free…. It’s called mindfulness.

With a little know-how, mindfulness can start to transform the uncontrollable worry by improving your relationship to these thoughts and fears. That may sound airy fairy, but it’s actually founded in science – so much so that there’s now an entire division of psychology devoted to it.

Join us for a practical workshop lead by Provisional Psychologist and Mindfulness Practitioner, Martha Tsakalos, on how mindfulness can start helping you with anxiety today.
