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.

    Brilliant and Practically applicable


    The course was well structured and organized. The course material was skillfully delivered by the trainer with several demonstrations. Focusing on the practical application of theories and models, the course is a perfect blend of theory, practice and situational examples. I found the processes to be useful both in terms of increasing my practical knowledge and skills as well as applicable to managing and solving problems in my own life. This course is a must for psychologists and trainers.

    It was a really good experience with ICHARS. Everything is in format and well explained. Not only Mishba Ma’am shows us the demonstrations, but we were also asked to perform them. It was really engaging, Though it was in online mode, I didn’t feel anything was missing. It was engaging. I loved it. Looking forward to doing more with ICHARS.

    Good course!


    It’s my second course with ICHARS and it’s really helpful just like the former one. The best things about the course is the thought restructuring process, abstract metaphors and mindfulness practice. The instructors are patient and knowledgeable. Highly recommended course..

    Anxiety Counseling Certification


    The workshop equips one with-
    1. Different methods which are practical and effective at the same time
    2. Provides a detailed session plan
    3. Not theory based- has complete practical application
    It was highly interactive and engaging and special mention to Dhivyaraksha ma’am and Mamta ma’am for being sensitive to all our queries and doubts.
