There are many reasons you have decided to try self-help for your anxiety. It could be that you are on a waiting list to be seen by a therapist, or you decide to use the course in addition to therapy, or perhaps you want to start with self-help. My course is designed to be a valuable resource to help you with anxiety.

Why choose a CBT-based self-help course?

It gets results.

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a tried and tested method that research has shown to help treat anxiety, but it also lends itself well to a self-help format for the following reasons.

It is a highly structured model of therapy, where the principles are taught and practised outside of sessions. This format works well with this course’s step-by-step approach.

The focus is on skill development, such as behavioural experiments or learning to relax your body. All these can be taught online.

CBT uses worksheets and homework; this is the same whether you have an in-person session or use self-help.

It is psychoeducational meaning that your therapist, teaches you about the model and about anxiety, this also lends very well to a course format.

It is also highly cost-effective as individual therapy can be expensive and lasts around 12 to 16 sessions.
