Mental Health

6 - 8 WEEKS

Generalised Anxiety Pathway

Anxiety can be seen in most classrooms and often feels debilitating for the young person suffering. It can lead to poor attendance and an inability to engage with school, as student’s struggle to deal with symptoms which feel overwhelming. On this pathway, the counsellor will support the young person to explore the root of these anxious feelings so they can understand them and begin to overcome them. The student will learn to recognise triggers for their anxiety, strategies to manage it, as well as support to build their self-esteem and resilience. This improved confidence should lead to improved engagement in all aspects of their school and home life.

Length of treatment
6 – 8 sessions delivered weekly.
