No Panic’s 5 Step Approach
Our recovery programs whether individual or in a group aim to harness an individuals own strengths and provide them with the tools to they need to improve their own mental wellness. By encouraging participants to take personal responsibility for their own mental health and to identify not only what triggers mental health difficulties but also crucially keeps them well.
We use the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy to develop participant’s understanding of the relationship between thoughts, feelings, actions and physiology. It also explores interventions that participants can make in relation to changing their way of thinking and behaviour towards fear by using desensitisation techniques.
Our programs also focus on goal setting. We facilitate participants to look at all aspects of their life and to focus on the key goals that will improve their wellness. We coach on how through simple goal-setting and regular self-appraisal individuals can take personal responsibility and regain control.
We coach our participants on the principles of general mental well-being and the development of a wellness continuum that focuses on wellness strategies. Our programs aim to develop the participant’s understanding of the underlying principles of mindfulness and gratitude and how they can apply them in their own lives in simple and practical ways to enhance and maintain their mental wellness. Participants are encouraged to continue to develop their learned skills in order to maintain their own mental well-being on an ongoing basis.
No Panic believes that the best people to help anxiety sufferers recover are those that have lived through the same experiences, this is the reason why most of our volunteers have recovered using our services and feel that they want to go on to train and support others on the road to recovery.
Together we can recover and break the chains of anxiety
