Q?

What is public speaking coaching?

A.

Public speaking is very difficult for most people but an even bigger challenge for those with Social Anxiety. As someone living with social anxiety, I understand the challenges of presenting in front of others and can apply the process I learned to overcome the nerves and deliver a well-structured, confidently delivered presentation. Communication skills are life skills.

What presentations and workshops do you currently offer?

A.

I provide two presentations that also work well as workshops. The first is about my experience with learning to manage anxiety through cognitive behavioral therapy and other maintenance strategies after a lifetime of clinical anxiety. The second, called, “The End of Waiting” which is about how we live in a busy world and can learn and apply new ways of tapping into our inner calm and creativity.

Q?

I have dealt with anxiety and depression, can I benefit from booster groups or anxiety coaching?

Anxiety and depression often travel together. If you are currently living in the Lower Mainland of Vancouver, have an anxiety disorder and have completed therapy, the booster group might provide the additional support you need to manage your gains from treatment. If you are looking for some anxiety coaching to help with a particular challenge, then using the anxiety coaching service might be more beneficial for you.
