About: 

26.3% of Australians aged 16 to 85 years have experienced an anxiety disorder in their lives. This is equivalent to 4.96 million people today. Feeling anxious in certain situations can help us avoid danger, triggering our 'fight or flight' response. It is how we’ve evolved to keep ourselves safe. However, on some occasions we can become overly worried about perceived threats, like bad things which may or may not occur

When your worries are persistent or out of proportion to the reality of a threat and get in the way of you living a normal life, you may have an anxiety disorder. An example might be an excessive fear of a social or work situation.

If your life feels like it is on a downward spiral and you are struggling to cope, our support group sessions offer sufferers and carers the opportunity to discuss their anxiety and help them to learn how to deal with their fears, knowing they are not alone. The caring and sharing of the group offers relief from isolation and loneliness.

Facilitator: Priscilla Floyd is a provisionally registered psychologist and works in Human Resources. She has a passion for facilitating great conversations where we can learn from one another.  Her support groups frequently feature some psycho-education and homework and have a positive psychology approach.
