Online Anxiety Support Group Throughout British Columbia

When we are overwhelmed, stuck, & don’t know where to start, we typically don’t start. I specialize in CBT to help you get unstuck, understand “your stuff” (cause we all have it!), & implement practical strategies to change how you thinkfeel, & live more alive

We all experience stress and anxiety from time to time. Stress and Anxiety are some of the most prevalent issues people seek counselling for. You are not alone. Although, it can feel that way. Anxiety thrives on isolation and avoidance of the things that trigger your anxiety. Therefore, facing those fears with a trusted therapist can be so helpful. Friends and family may mean well, and are immensely important, however, they may not be properly trained like a professional and able to give unbiased input.


I’m so glad that you decided to join us for this group. You are here for a reason; you want change in your life. When we are overwhelmed, stuck, and don’t know where to start, we typically don’t start. The most important thing is to start where you are. 

It is normal to feel a little nervous, but this is where strongholds can be released; in a safe community. Everything shared here is confidential. You will be sent an Intake & Consent form specific to groups highlighting this, the commitment of the full session duration of 8 weeks, & and 24-hour cancellation policy. Coverage is dependent on your insurance policy. Payment is made via e-transfer of $50 prior to each session to [email protected]  in which you will receive a receipt to submit to your insurance for reimbursement (please check with your unique policy for coverage).

Topics Covered:

You do not necessarily have to bare your soul — especially initially. It is a safe place for people walking through the same struggle to not feel as alone. There is power in connection as anxiety and most mental health struggles thrive in isolation and avoidance. You can always email me privately, or type questions in the chat box privately so I can address questions/topics to focus on while still maintaining anonymity.

So the focus of the group is:

  • Demystifying Anxiety: What is Anxiety? General Information and Overview
  • Safe connection and community
  • Teaching from myself rather than a heavy focus on vulnerable sharing (although that is encouraged in a safe way at your own comfort level)
  • Recorded sessions so you can always go back and rewatch/listen or refresh your memory
  • Worksheets and reflection exercises to keep forever
  • Signs and symptoms of anxiety
  • What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)? And how can it help my anxiety or any mental health issue?
  • Things that can contribute to anxiety
  • Protective factors against anxiety (things that help protect against the onset of anxiety)
  • Coping strategies that are proven by science, practical, and personalized to you
  • Prevention (preventing anxiety, and what to do when  it returns. Hint: You can cope!)
  • Strengthening factors to not only survive but thrive.
  • How to support someone with anxiety. 

This is a safe, secure, and confidential online support group for those wanting to learn more about Anxiety and Coping Strategies. We will meet weekly for an hour for 8 weeks. Groups are very effective for building connection, especially during this time.

We are created for connection and there is something powerful in working together in a common struggle. Participants build community and learn various coping strategies from teachings from Barb, sharing from each other, and Q and A time together in a safe, non- judgemental environment. You are able to submit questions anonymously prior to the group or ask and share freely throughout the group. 

There will be teaching on themed topics related to the group each session, interactive exercises, and take-aways to practice at home. 

We are created for connection and this is a powerful tool in living more alive. We are in this together 😊

Please check with your insurance provider for reimbursement details. Groups are a great way to ensure consistency of weekly meetings and budgeting finances as each session is $50. Of course if you are wanting more in depth or personalized work, you are welcome to book an individual session.

We are so excited to have you! You will be sent a secure emailed link for our group session.

Payment is made in full via e-transfer prior to the start of the group’s first session. Each session is $50. We ask that you commit for 8 weeks for creating new thinking and behavioural patterns based upon a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach.
