About this event

Anxiety is one of the most common reasons for someone seeking therapist support and the pandemic has exacerbated the situation. How have other service providers dealt with the situation? Our prestigious panel of experts will offer their insights on anxiety, its impact on lives, the fallout, and the latest thinking around therapeutic interventions. Don’t miss our first Anxiety Symposium taking place on 1 July, 2021 and the opportunity to learn about new ideas and skills, designed to enhance better outcomes for your clients.

Following the event, everyone signing up will be emailed a detailed brochure outlining more about the work of our speakers and our research on anxiety.
