Session Flow:

  1. The focus of the first session is on understanding the nature of anxiety and the common signs and symptoms of anxiety. You will then explore the sources of anxiety and the underlying causes that lead to anxiety.
  2. In session two, you will learn to build rapport and understand how to work with clients online. We will help you get an insight into various presenting problems and then define the actual problem including the feelings, triggers, symptoms.
    You will also understand that there can be different types of clients and how to begin working with each type of client. By the end of the course, you would be able to work with clients who are not able to define their current situation clearly, clients who are not able to describe the feelings and the triggers, and clients who are overwhelmed with anxiety. Once you learn to help the client define the problem, you will also learn to help the client define a clear outcome for therapy.
  3. In this session, you will develop skills to identify specific thoughts and physical feelings that lead to anxiety. Further, you will learn to identify helpful thoughts to replace the triggering thoughts. Once these have been identified, you will learn how to recondition these thoughts to replace anxiety with the desired feeling.
  4. In the last session, you will train in a unique process devised at ICHARS to help the client work with unconscious elements that may be triggering anxiety. And in the end, we will bring it all together in a step-by-step process, you can follow with your clients.

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 considered as 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 session and group sessions during the time of the lockdown itself.

Mental health practitioners who are looking for an effective yet structured approach to work 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 Counselling Certification


    It was an amazing course. It was very interactive and Misba makes sure that everyone participates and learns all the content of the course. After studying psychology in school and college and then in masters, I finally got to learn what actually happens in a session.

    Anxiety Counselling workshop


    We learned so many techniques which we can use with clients and the range of practical ideas was really great. For me, the timings were not kept and that put pressure on me and my other commitments. If the course is planned for 3 hours for 4 days, we should be able to complete it in that time and it is not fair to ask participants to add on 30-60 minutes extra every day for 4 days when we have meetings, clients, kids to collect from school and other plans. I liked that we got to practice all the techniques as that really helped in being able to use it with clients. Lots of useful information but it needs to be completed within the time limit and if conversations go off topic, the teacher needs to bring it back to stick to timings.

    4 days of Anxiety Counselling Workshop (It helps you build your confidence with Clients)


    It was a pretty insightful course, 4 days were amazing and fun. It was a very practical approach where there were breakout rooms which helped us to gel with other students. So I loved the practical nature of the course. Misbah mam was patient while answering our questions. I liked that. The only suggestion I can give is to give at least a one-day break in between daily sessions. As it was tiring sitting for 4 hours per session every day. Overall, I liked it. And every coach and counselor should take this course when you want to help your clients with overcoming anxiety and its triggers. Kudos to ICHARS and the team
