Mental health and wellbeing workshops

In this series of mental health and wellbeing workshops we invite UK MPS Society members to explore and understand anxiety as well as techniques to build resilience. These sessions will be run by Diana Thornton who is a counsellor and mindfulness teacher.

For adults

Anxiety is something that we all have to deal with and a little bit of anxiety can be helpful to spur us on. But there comes a point where anxiety can stop being helpful and can become a burden. In this series of workshops learn what happens in your brain and your body when you become anxious, learn techniques to help yourself during anxious episodes and learn how to build resilience so that anxiety reduces its grip.

There are currently no upcoming mental health and wellbeing workshops for adults. Please check this page regularly for any updates.

For children

In these fun interactive sessions for children, Diana Thornton will introduce children to what happens in their brain and body when they become anxious and will introduce some ways to deal with stress and anxiety drawn from her work as a counsellor and a mindfulness teacher. Parents must be there when children log in and although not required to be a part of the discussion should be nearby to offer support if required.

For young people

Anxiety can sometimes be difficult to break away from. It can also be worrying when you experience it until you understand what is happening to your brain and to your body. In these two 1 hour workshops, Diana Thornton will demystify what is happening to you physically when anxiety kicks in and will teach you some tried and tested techniques to help get it under control. Parents must be there when young people log in and although not required to be a part of the discussion should be nearby to offer support if required.
