Navigating your maze: a therapy group for students experiencing anxiety and panic

Being a young adult can be an amazing chapter in life. However, it’s hard to enjoy it if it’s often filled with worries. Sometimes it might even feel like avoiding social situations is the only way to deal with these feelings. In fact, pushing through this discomfort and joining a group of other young adults going through a similar experience, is an excellent way to navigate these difficulties. If you experience any of the following:

  • Excessive worrying and anxiety in social situations

  • Feeling agitated and restless

  • Frequently experiencing loneliness

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Trouble falling or staying asleep

  • Panic attacks

  • Avoiding social situations

  • Being controlling (or easily controlled) in relationships

This group is for you! Join us to learn specific skills to feel in control, increase confidence and give you hope.

Interpersonal group

Interpersonal group therapy is a powerful way to learn about ourselves and our relationships with others. It is comprised of a group of people (usually 6 - 8 people) who meet together weekly to work through relational issues that lead to psychological symptoms or dissatisfaction in relationships.

People who join an interpersonal therapy group usually want to be able to relate better with others and to feel better about themselves. If you experience any of the following:

  • Feeling angry, frustrated, or dissatisfied in relationships

  • Having difficulty trusting others

  • Struggling to forge close (or meaningful) relationships

  • Relying on alcohol or drugs to socialize

  • Feeling that one often has to please others

  • Struggling to communicate one’s thoughts, feelings, and needs directly

  • Having trouble with self-esteem

Come join our group! Participation can help you notice more clearly the emotional patterns and thoughts that guide your behavior, and develop greater flexibility in how you manage your relationships.

When: Fridays, 9:00 - 10:15 am
