Discover the faster way to help clients release their grip on worry...
So they can finally heal from Generalised Anxiety Disorder

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is the hardest type of anxiety to treat because the client believes their worry is helpful...

That it will prepare them for the worst-case scenario, or somehow deter future unwanted events.

It never works. But still… They just can't let it go.

So, you—and your client—end up stuck. Unable to move forward in treatment until you can find a way to help them overcome their fierce resistance to change.

Fortunately, the last 15 years of research has expanded our understanding of GAD, the processes that underlie it, and how to treat it...

Which has led to a significant transformation in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) treatments for GAD...

Such as shifting the focus from identifying what's NOT working in a client's life to identifying what IS working well for them.

This online course will show you how to seamlessly blend these emerging CBT approaches with techniques informed by Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Positive Psychology...

So you can help clients identify and harness their strengths so they can finally let go of constant worry to thrive again.
