Anxiety Management in Uncertain Times: virtual session for staff

April 27th, 2020

Back by popular demand, Dr Xenia Pestova Bennett will be hosting an online workshop via Microsoft Teams for staff introducing simple techniques to reduce anxiety.

Join Dr Pestova Bennett on Wednesday 13 May from 10.30am – 11.15am as she guides participants through simple breathing, movement and focus exercises to help create an individual “anxiety toolkit” which can be accessed in times of need. The session will be followed by an optional Q&A

Past participants have said: ” The breathing practices are very beneficial and I am continuing to use these!” and “I would recommend this to anyone who has trouble sleeping or calming down because the exercises mentioned are really helpful.”

To join this online workshop, please email Julie Thomas by 12 noon on Tuesday 12 May 2020. Please note – Due to the incredibly high level of interest received, once all places have been filled, a waiting list will be held.

The 45-minute workshop will be recorded.
