Help is at hand.
If anxiety is blighting your life, the good news is that there’s lots which can be done.
Our experts have developed a specific Anxiety Management programme for people just like you.

Clinical strategies to try out straight away
Learn techniques for every situation
Create a mind-set for lasting recovery
Call us now in complete confidence on 0345 11 22 300 to book your place. The programme is available at an all-inclusive price of £595, including six hours of small-group workshops, plus an initial one-to-one goal-setting meeting.
Here’s how it works.
The nitty-gritty of what you’ll be doing.
Over four consecutive Thursday evenings, you’ll meet for ninety minutes per session and progress through a carefully-planned syllabus.
These are some of the key points you’ll cover:
Getting to know your anxiety better. What is anxiety? Why do we get anxious? Where did it come from, and how embedded is it in your life?
How we inadvertently feed anxiety and keep it going. You’ll learn how to manage panic attacks and anxiety flare-ups.
Daily strategies to ease anxiety, looking at obstacles which might be holding you back and creating mind-sets for lasting recovery.
Living life with all your new skills, relapse prevention strategies and future fears. Importantly, how to avoid falling back into anxious spirals.
A place where everyone understands.
Feel right at home in your very own safe haven of friendship, tranquillity and support.
One of the great things about a group programme is that you’ll be working with other people who all know what you’re going through, because they’re there themselves.
Straight away, you have the reassurance of knowing that you’re not alone … and with a maximum of only six participants per group, the vibe is always safe, intimate and supportive.
Sessions take place at Esher Groves Private Clinic - a calming, tranquil oasis of wellbeing. A place where the physical environment becomes an integral part of the overall treatment experience.
Initial personalised goal-setting
Prior to starting the programme, you’ll have an hour-long one-to-one session with Sanj, the group facilitator.
Together, you’ll develop a clear picture of the impact that anxiety is having on your life, and formulate goals for what you’d like to achieve from attending the programme.
You’ll also be inducted into how groups, work, confidentiality guidelines and how to get the most from the process.
Groups plus one-to-one sessions
The Anxiety Management programme sits perfectly alongside any one-to-one therapy sessions you may also be having.
People often find that the combination of groups and one-to-one treatment helps to target anxiety from as many angles as possible, and both types of treatment bring something different to the treatment journey.
For more information, ask your present therapist, or consider linking in with one of the team of independent practitioners based at Esher Groves.
Sanj - your guide for the journey
Our programme is delivered by Sanj Parhar, a rising star in the field of mental wellbeing.
After graduating with a degree and a prestigious award in Psychology, Sanj has gone on to work in both the NHS and Priory group, and is presently juggling clinical duties with studying for a PhD at Roehampton University.
Sanj is a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), and as well as experience of running a variety of group sessions, he has conducted clinical research together with activities as varied as public speaking training and international trauma assistance.
Safe to say, you’ll be in good hands…
