      • are not able to describe their feelings and the triggers, and

    1. Develop skills to identify specific thoughts and physical feelings that lead to anxiety.
    2. Learn to identify helpful thoughts to replace the triggering thoughts.

Who should attend the Anxiety Counselling Certification:

This course is specially designed for mental health professionals, healthcare workers, practising life coaches, and others already working in the area of mental health and wellbeing.

This Professional Level Online Course on Anxiety Management is an in-depth study course and is considered an add-on qualification for professional counsellors and practising life coaches. It is also suitable for study alongside a traditional counselling qualification.

Why Anxiety Counselling Certification:

The COVID19 pandemic has resulted in creating not just the obvious problems related to physical health but it has triggered various many mental health issues and exaggerated existing ones.  We are probably just starting to scratch the surface of the real extent of the impact this pandemic will have in the long run.

It is extremely important for mental health practitioners to be prepared for the large inflow of clients that may need help in the coming months and maybe even years. The techniques covered during this course have been applied successfully with more than 500 clients via online counselling both in 1 to 1 sessions and group sessions during the time of the lockdown itself.

Mental health practitioners who are looking for an effective yet structured approach to working with different causes leading to anxiety would find this course extremely useful. We have intentionally kept the theory limited to only the extent necessary to work with clients via the medium of online counselling and the focus of the program is more on various practical applications.

    Anxiety counseling workshop

    This workshop was amazing in getting into the depth and it is hands-on as well. Just for 4 days, this is really worth it as I always got my questions cleared and this course follows a detailed structure of tools and techniques that can help the clients. This workshop helped me to take it hands-on.

    Anxiety Counselling Workshop

    The workshop was well structured and even people with no background of psychology could easily grasp concepts well. The practicing of the concept immediately after learning it, did really help understand better and answer questions. Dhivyaraksha was extremely sweet and patient and answered each one of our questions without cutting us off. The techniques she explained were extremely relatable and I definitely will look for more associations with ICHARS in the future and will recommend it to anyone who needs as well.

    Very intriguing and insightful, got an understanding of triggered-based anxiety and a different perspective toward anxiety-based therapeutic techniques. The mentor, Dhivyarakhsha ma’am, guided us in the best way, and had a great time learning with ICHARS.
