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

According to statistics published by the HSE, in 2021/22, there were an estimated 914,000 cases of work-related stress, depression or anxiety. 

Therefore, the need for awareness and education on the subject of mental health is apparent. 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.

Great tips to reduce anxiety

A very helpful course

Clear and easy to understand

A general overview giving advice on managing anxiety. Easy to understand an well presented.

A good basic overview

I was hoping it would relate more to my volunteering in youth work i.e. recognising anxiety in young people and how to interact with them (recognising of course my limitations as a non-professional when it comes to mental health etc) and signpost them to help, if needed. Obviously, some of the techniques suggested would be useful - often I have used belly breathing to calm a situation.

Fairly useful

Repetitive with other courses
