As part of Growing Confidence work, the Life Long Learning Team (Health and Well Being ) are holding an event for young people who are experiencing social anxiety or emotionally based school refusal. Please find details below. Places are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis.
Tuesday 6th February
Daring to Try: Overcoming Anxiety
Come and hear from Paula McGuire who in her own words ‘lived for 30 years trembling under a rock somewhere on the outskirts of every social situation’ and how she battled her way back from debilitating anxiety, learnt to embrace fear and turn barriers into new adventures.
Please note that young people should be accompanied by a parent, carer or supportive adult. The session will be relaxed, friendly and there will be no expectation to contribute. Just come, listen and hopefully be inspired that things can and do change!
