One of the most effective ways to treat anxiety is with CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy). The Anxiety Management Diploma Course explains what it is, how it works, its key components and the various types of CBT available.
While CBT comes highly recommended, there are various alternative therapy techniques that can alleviate the symptoms of anxiety.

The Anxiety Management Diploma Course also covers meditation and mindfulness in more depth, explaining what they are and how they can be used as a form of anxiety control training.
Along with specific therapies and remedies, the course explores how making changes to our daily lives can help in combatting anxiety. We look at exercise and diet - how these affect anxiety and best practices for their use in anxiety management - and other lifestyle considerations, such as sleep, spending time in nature, having a support network, and addressing time management.
