If the party season fills you with dread...
… help is at hand!
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is known to be effective treatment for social anxiety disorder. We look at your thoughts and behaviours and work together to come up with more helpful strategies.
Are you ready to end 2018 in a better place than you started it?
The FearFighter programme is an online CBT course which you can do at your own pace in your own home.
Approved by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence and the NHS, FearFighter consists of:
- 9 online sessions each lasting around an hour (ideally done weekly)
- Downloadable content and exercises for you to do during the week
- 60 minutes of support with me, Deirdre Coyne, in a format which suits you, for example:
- Weekly accountability calls, or
- 4 x 15 minute support call, or
- 1x 60 minute telephone or skype session
I am one of the very few therapists who has experienced and overcome anxiety myself. This means, I fully understand how debilitating it can be to suffer with extreme fear but I also know how great it feels to experience the freedom of being cured.
Having overcome my own social anxiety, I now use my knowledge and personal experience to help others experience the same transformation.
What will you gain from Fearfighter with me?
Using the FearFighter online course weekly and working with me, you will get:
- An understanding of what is going on physically when you feel anxious and learn how to manage this.
- A range of techniques for you to use when you feel anxious
- Ways to develop more positive beliefs about the situations which make you anxious
- The confidence to gradually expose yourself to challenging situations and learn to cope with them
- The wisdom, experience and expertise of someone who has been where you are now.
What do others say about Fearfighter?
“No longer is my anxiety a hidden monkey on my back and at last I can live a fuller life, relatively uninhibited by those old irrational fears and misconceptions which had driven me to early retirement and a sad, irritable and solitary existence.”
