Although no one likes paperwork, by filling it in you are letting us know the conditions people have wanting to come to our groups. This could lead to the formation of new groups in future. This led us to wanting to set up a PTSD group.

No waiting list

Run by people with anxiety 

Attend as many or few as you want

No time limits - we've been here twelve years

What are groups like?

The purpose of the groups is to share experiences of anxiety, learn together, a social aspect, normalise anxiety/depression/low mood and to share coping strategies. The group size is 5-12 members usually. 

Topics

We talk about a very large list of topics (around 100 have been covered over the years). This includes individual conditions like social anxiety and depression, but also coping strategies, sleep. travel, the workplace, families, self esteem and anger.
