Reducing Anxiety:

Bright Thinking Workshops

What is the programme?

​Bright Thinking is a fun, engaging and practical 6 week programme for children whose anxiety fuels their negative thinking.


Developed over 12 years ago at The Resilience Centre in Australia and delivered successfully over 50 times, the programme demonstrates a significant reduction in children’s anxiety and a dramatic increase in their social and personal competence. Bright Thinking is a strengths-based programme.

Rather than a focus on the child’s anxiety or worry thoughts, it

encourages a focus on what’s working

Throughout the programme, children recognise pessimistic and optimistic thinking, while giving them the solution focused skills to get from one type of thinking to another.​​​​​

Who is it for?

(Maximum 10 children per group.)

Parents/carers and professionals can reserve a place on the programme directly with us.
