Taking control of anxiety

This 3 part course includes 2 interactive zoom group sessions of 2 hours and one individual coaching session of 1 hour (online or outside face-to-face).

When we experience stressful circumstances, we often struggle with strong emotions like anger, pain, anxiety and fear. It feels like they are taking over our lives, and we try to avoid dealing with them for as long as possible. However, suppressing them often results in an uncontrolled pressure-cooker effect: the pot boils over or even explodes, often when it is most inconvenient.

There is an alternative. By integrating those strong emotions into our lives, learning what lessons we can from them, and harnessing the motivation and energy they give us, we can implement real change in our circumstances or grow in our ability to deal with them. This journey will feel uncomfortable at times, but the reward of reaching the destination – a more unified, integrated, cohesive personality and way of living – is well worth it.

Saturday 1 May 14.00 – 16.00 SAST

Managing our habits to control our anxiety:

We will explore daily rhythms as a way of changing us and helping us control our anxiety. This will include an evaluation of our habits, both good and bad, and how we can build on the good, exploring the benefits of solitude, rest and restoration.  Again, there will be time to engage in some anxiety reducing practices together such as relaxation exercises.

Saturday 8 May 14.00 – 16.00 SAST

Managing our time to control our anxiety:

We will cover our perceptions of how we use our time, challenge some of our beliefs and explore our emotions about time and look at some practical ideas for time management. There will also be time to engage in some anxiety reducing practices such as contemplation and silence.

The emphasis will be on practical experience of the tools shared so that you leave with authentic, effective tools that you have tried and applied to yourself. These will then be accessible to you in anxiety-provoking situations.

In the personal coaching session (at a time that suits you and the coach) you will have the opportunity to explore further solutions to your challenges so that there is real and practical progress in your ability to manage your anxiety.

 

Places limited to 10.

Cost (special Covid rate for complete package): R600/ $50/ €50/ £50

Anniversaries and the inbetweens

Anniversaries prompt us to look back at the journey to this point in history, to see where we have come from, to recall the many commemorative markers that are strung together on one long winding path. Looking back can be inspiring, nostalgic or even painful.

So many anniversaries have happened in March: our own wedding anniversary of 25 years, the one year anniversary of the begin of South African lockdown, my sister’s return from her volunteering on a Mercy Ship. And now, another Easter under lockdown. We look back and marvel at how our world has changed, and how we have changed.

Parenting with grace

We want to get our relationships right, particularly our family relationships.  We put in our best efforts as parents.  But we may end up tired, discouraged, and feeling like failures.  Why?  A primary cause is when we set out to control & change others, applying subtle pressure, making rules (mostly unwritten) and attempting to modify their attitudes & responses.  The natural result is exhaustion, depression or a sense of wanting to bail out.

One step towards more healthy relationships is to allow grace to replace manipulation & legislation.  Join Vera Marbach as she describes the difference between grace-filled relationships and curse-filled relationships, where “curse” is an acronym for … – you’ll need to attend the online talk to find out.

There will be opportunity for discussion and interaction.

Cost: R50

Doing things differently…

As some previously bizarre things have become part of our new normal due to circumstances beyond our control, let’s not give in to the idea that we have lost all agency. Let’s give the concept of voluntarily doing things differently some thought.

As I wrote last time, I have been putting some time and effort into establishing an outside office in my garden, where I can comfortably work and safely see coachees with social distancing protocols in place. I also decided to look beyond our property for other outside options, and have discovered some beautiful spots that can work a little further afield – ideal for walking, thinking and talking at the same time.

Time to celebrate!

Throughout this year celebrations have been dampened by regulations and by anxiety. I have been thinking about the value of celebrating. What exactly does it do in my life?

Celebrating puts a stake in the ground to show “This is where I am now. I have accomplished this specific achievement.” We celebrate big things milestones like passing an exam, finishing school, completing a degree. There is also value in celebrating smaller steps like developing a new habit. The feel-good experience of celebration helps us to hold on to the progress we have made, to keep the ground we have claimed.

Think Tank – Unconscious Bias

Unconscious biases are the underlying attitudes and stereotypes that people assign to another person or group without being aware of it. These biases affect how people interact with each other.

Do you feel you have been exposed to unconscious bias? At what cost? Are you aware of your own unconscious bias? During this Think Tank we will explore what we can constructively do when we are faced with unconscious bias directed at us, but also have an honest look at our own.

Join Khanyi Mthimunye & Vera Marbach on a group coaching whatsapp call to explore unconscious bias together.

Send a private message or email to vera@tt-tt.co.za to book your place and get details for payment. Suggested donation: R50.

If you cannot make this time on Saturday, could you make the earlier one at 11.30?
