hello, i'm only on ther 1st week... at the beggining of each week you get information to read and then homework to do during the week...
the 1st session consists of lotsa reading, (i printed off 15 a4 sheets of info to read) then you need to print off an 'anxious thoughts and behaviours table' and a 'panic attack form' and you need to fill them in when you get anxious so that you have a record of your thoughts/symptoms and behaviours... the homework for the 1st week is just to fill in the forms when you need to but as the weeks go on i presume you need to expose yourself to scary situations. it did say that a lot of hard work needs to be put into it to overcxome it but i'm sure thats the case with any CBT.
you dont actually get anyone helping you but there is a forum on the website and people you can chat to who are going through the same thing or have completed the course.
yep the course is free... so you've got nothing to lose if it doesnt help...
