This training course is broken down into 2 sections
- 1 Introduction to Anxiety
- 2 Ideas & Techniques
Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, and the symptoms range from mild to severe and is also an umbrella term that covers a number of diagnosable conditions. This section will provide an introduction to anxiety and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
Anxiety looks and feels different for different people, which means the solutions for reducing anxiety will also differ for each person. So in this section, we offer a variety of ideas and tools - some are based on mindfulness, and others are based on CBT techniques.
About this course
In 2018/19, there were at least 602,000 workers who suffered from work-related stress, depression, or anxiety.
This Managing Anxiety Training course provides ideas and techniques to help people to manage their anxiety, this includes belly breathing techniques, strengthening your resilience and ABC forms that help people to highlight how they felt and behaved during an anxiety-provoking event.
CBT, or cognitive behavioural therapy, can play a key part in helping people better manage anxious thoughts. Recognised by the NHS, here is how they describe the process:
"Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It's most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems." - NHS
When users complete our IOSH Approved course, we hope that they feel more confident in addressing uncomfortable or upsetting situations, so they can lessen the impact they have on them.

Gives helpful techniques in a simpler clearer way
Helpful advice easy to understand
Anxiety is a medical condition
I think it needs to be stated that although this course is managing the feeling of being anxious it its not designed to cover 'anxiety' the severe medical condition, and some of the tips outlined although may help to an extent will not fully cover the broad issues associated with clinical anxiety which this course fails to mention. It increases the stigma of clinical anxiety as it diminishes 'anxiety' to something that can get handled with breathing exercises etc, and doesn't note that many people may be on medication.
