Learn how to take away your thoughts’ ability to worry, disturb or stress you


  • We can relive past memories or play out horrifying future scenarios and experience them as if they were happening right now in the present moment.
  • We can bring difficult sensations into mind (e.g. anxiety) just by thinking of their corresponding word (e.g. “anxiety”).

Our thoughts (the words inside our head) and the things they refer to (e.g. a story, an object, a person) can become stuck together, they can feel like they’re one thing. We then react to words about an event or object as if the event is actually happening or the object is actually present.
In this event:

  • You will learn how human thinking works and why thinking has the capability to worry and upset you.
  • You will learn exercises you can use to reduce the extent to which thoughts worry or upset you.
  • You will learn to relate to your thoughts in a new way where they have much less impact or influence over you.
  • You will learn how to regain control over your life by reducing the influence unhelpful thoughts have over your behaviour, e.g. self-limiting beliefs or self-criticism.

This event will be highly experiential (i.e. we will do exercises to learn and adapt), although some theory will be presented (<20% of the time). Being late may prevent you from participating in the exercises or understanding what's going on.

The session, it's exercises and theory are from an evidence-backed approach, called Acceptance and Commitment Training / Therapy.
