No Panic's Recovery Programmes & Support Services

Our recovery programmes and support services, whether individual or in a group aim to harness an individual’s own strengths and provide them with the tools 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 what keeps them well.

We use cognitive behavioural therapy principles to develop participants’ understanding of the relationship between thoughts, feelings, actions, and physiology. It also explores interventions that participants can make concerning 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 of their lives.

We coach our participants on the principles of general mental well-being and the development of a wellness continuum that focuses on self-care strategies. Our programs aim to develop a 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 developing their learned life skills and 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 their road to recovery.

What is the cost?  £20 per course, Membership of No Panic and the cost of a one hour telephone call per week from your home to a teleconference facility.

The course takes place on the telephone using a teleconference facility. This system enables a group of people to talk to each other as if they are all sitting around a table. Each group has a trained group leader who will guide the group through the course.

During the course, group members will be offered the chance to continue as a self-facilitating befriending group for as long as the group wishes and the group leader will explain how this works.
