This will be a very useful seminar whether you are a therapist, coach or for your own personal development.

According to the findings from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), nearly one-fifth of adults experience anxiety or depression, with the conditions affecting a higher proportion of women than men.

It was shown that the highest incidence of mild mental illness is among the 50 to 54 age group, while 19 per cent of people aged 16 or over reported the symptoms.

Signs of the conditions were reported by 27 per cent of individuals who were divorced or separated – markedly higher than the 20 per cent of single people who said the same, as well as the 16 per cent of people who were married or in a civil partnership.

The findings – which were based on a questionnaire that asked people about their levels of self-worth, self-confidence, depression and stress – were gathered as part of the ONS Measuring National Wellbeing programme, which saw 40,000 households surveyed between 2010 and 2011.

City CBT Coaching College will provide a continuing professional development (CPD) letter confirming two hours of CPD.
