“Overcoming Your Fears”

Do you procrastinate? Often put things off? Are there some things that just seem a little too scary to try?

This bite-sized workshop explores the ‘SAFE’ method for fighting your fears and taking steps to change. It’s a simple, step-by-step  approach to dealing with what so often stops us from taking action and, rather than focusing on the goal, it instead considers the blocks that we all experience in taking that first step into something new.
