  • Managing anxiety
  • Regulating emotions
  • Developing resilience
  • Coming to terms with a diagnosis or the possibility of getting one
  • Teenage years
  • Planning for the future.

The course will run online over six weekly classes, taking place between 10am and 11.45am on Wednesday mornings, on the following dates:

October 7, 14 and 21; November 4, 11 and 18. There is a break during the week of the school half-term holiday at the end of October.
