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.

Very informative

Extremely helpful as finding anxiety hard to deal with at times but now I know how to deal with it as it happens

Fantastic. Excellent.

To have what Ive experienced in the training manuals assured me that I am not alone and that is normal. That assurance alone has answered most of the questions I would have asked a counsellor or a mental health worker. Also techniques I am using has been clarified and explained

Why is this training important?

Business benefits

Whether an employee's anxiety is induced by a heavy workload, lack of support, changes to the workplace, or bullying, it is absolutely crucial that your employees are aware of how to best deal with anxious thoughts whilst at work.

With roughly 602,000 workers suffering from work-related stress, depression or anxiety in the UK in 2018/19 alone, it is clear to see that some employees aren't as good at handling their anxious thoughts as others. Hence the importance of this training course.

The course aims to provide the user with the right techniques and tools to manage anxious thoughts safely and effectively.

As a result of employees being more informed on this topic, you could see a boost in productivity amongst your employees! In fact, for every £1 you invest in the wellbeing of your employees, you can see an average of a £4.20 return!
