Perspectives on Working with Anxiety

“There is no experience that this man (client) has that I cannot share with him, no fear I cannot understand, no suffering that I cannot care about, because I too am human.” Carl Rogers

Anxiety is the most common presentation in our counselling rooms. As we are human we all experience it in various forms and amplifications. Log on to find out how to work more effectively with anxiety, whether its yours or your client’s. The College of Counselling is facilitating its forth webinar in line with its mission to provide affordable and accessible professional development. This webinar will explore working with anxiety from 2 different practitioner lenses. An Existential lens with Alison Strasser and an eclectic lens with Kate Henderson, followed by a discussion.

Allison Strasser is a practicing psychotherapist, coach and supervisor. She is also an educator with a passion for imparting how existential themes can be integrated into every therapeutic approach. Her doctorate focused on the process of supervision, work that led to a framework for supervisor training, now a major component of CEP’s annual program. Alison co-authored Time-Limited Existential Therapy with her father, Freddie Strasser and she is currently working on a revised edition

Kate Henderson is a PACFA accredited counsellor and carer consultant with a background in assisting individuals experiencing anxiety and their supporters.
Having sought treatment for an anxiety disorder in her mid 20’s, Kate developed a heartfelt interest in reducing stigma and improving outcomes in the field. In 2005 she undertook post-graduate training in counselling whilst working for The Panic Anxiety Disorder Association, a small not-for-profit organisation founded by renowned author and advocate, Bronwyn Fox.
Now a private practitioner, Kate draws on her many years of professional and lived experience. She is particularly passionate about empowering the individual to view their health from a holistic perspective, to recognise unhelpful ways of thinking and living and to make self-responsible choices leading to improved mental health.
Kate’s approach is simple, practical and person-centred, with an emphasis on assisting the client to tune in to and utilise their inner resources and wisdom. She utilises an eclectic mix of modalities, incorporating elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Mindfulness based practices.
