Telephone Recovery Group (For Members)
Who is the course for? The course is to help all anxiety disorder sufferers overcome their fears.
What does it involve? It is a basic 12 week, one hour per week telephone course.
When will the course take place? Usually in the evenings.
Why might you need this course? Because you want to get better and because you don’t have or can’t get to a local group.
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.
Each course will run for a 12 week period.
The course is designed to help people who suffer with Anxiety disorders to make steps along the road to recovery.
The courses use layperson cognitive/behaviour therapy and anxiety management as the basis for recovery. Whilst no therapy guarantees success, this method has at the present time the highest success rate.
You will be expected to face up to your fear on a step-by-step basis but, we do not plan to throw you into your worst scenario and let you sink or swim. The progress you make will depend on the amount of effort you are prepared to put in.
You will also be expected to read one section of the manual for each week prior to each weekly teleconference. Don’t leave it until the last minute prior to each session, you will not benefit as much if you do.
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.
