Positivity in the time of COVID-19

3 million Australians are living with anxiety or depression

And this number is probably growing by the second. We are living in the most uncertain times in living history and this is bringing up uncomfortable feelings for many in our community. It is well known that excessive stress negatively impacts our immunity; this is yet another reason for us to embrace effective stress management skills.

There has never been a better time to explore our vulnerabilities, our uncomfortable emotions and the courage that comes from being supported.

  • Learn new skills.
  • Develop new ways to cope, and support ourselves.
  • Develop long term strategies for optimal mental health.
  • Increase our self-esteem and self-compassion.
  • Improve our productivity.
  • Learn relaxation skills.

To support people and to help those affected harshly by this pandemic, Dr. Michelle Woolhouse is conducting a 6-week online group consultation relating to anxiety management.

Thorough exploration of the scientifically validated whole person approach to anxiety management.

  • 7.5 hours of contact at a regular time each week.
  • Maximum of 10 people only per course.
