"I am exhausted from trying to be stronger than I feel. "
"My anxiety makes me overanalyze every situation. I struggle to see my value. I only see a million flaws."
"I don't recognise myself every time I look in the mirror; the only thing I see is my anxiety and my depression sabotaging me from my full potential..."
"I would love to live a happy and balanced life, but that is too difficult for me..."
"I would love to talk about the thoughts which are running around out of control in my head, but there is nobody to understand me and bear with me on my daily struggle..."
"I have tried so much, but I see no light at the end of the tunnel..."
"I've lost my passion, my purpose and whatever gave meaning to my life; how is it possible to recover from such a "loss"?"
You are not alone.
Anxiety, Depression and Burnout seem to have become mass phenomena, receiving constant media attention.
Leading a stressful lifestyle can be one reason why people are put into such extreme pressure, to the point that they feel exhausted, empty and unable to cope. Additionally, the mental and physical symptoms of anxiety, depression and/or burnout are so overwhelming that sooner or later one feels alienated from what seems to have been rewarding and pleasant until now.
This is your group: Anxiety, Depression & Burnout Support Group.
People who are struggling with Anxiety, Depression, Burnout, Panic Attacks and other Phobias, meet together in this group twice a month and they share their own deepest thoughts within a safe, positive and non-judgemental environment.
At the same time, we learn useful tools and techniques on how to deal with Anxiety and Depression, we learn about the causes and the "mechanism" behind these conditions, and we prepare ourselves mentally on how to defeat them and live a more balanced life.
Bring only your concerns, questions, open minds and warm hearts!

What they said:
"I've recently joined a new Support Group. I didn't know what to expect but each time I have been, I've noticed that there is a healing 'energy' in the room. People share their stories and situations in a safe way. It's a small intimate group, it feels good to have a window to share with others travelling a similarly difficult journey. Vassia who facilitates holds the group in a very talented way. She gives home exercises that are really causing me to be brave and deepen the process of acceptance."

With her energy and her endless will to help, the support group exceeds our expectations."
