Our Tools

At Anxiety Solutions CBT we teach practical tools that provide relief from symptoms in a short space of time.

Renee explains:


In total, there are 20 tools.  The tools are divided into 4 types:

  1. Cognitive
  2. Behavioural
  3. Emotional and
  4. Calming tools

Here are a couple of examples:

Cognitive Tool

One of the most popular tools is the “ruler” which teaches perspective.  It is a cognitive tool, that is, it helps you to change the way you think.  In this short video Renee describes exactly how to utilise the ruler which is available as a download from this site.

Calming Tool

A very important calming tool is relaxation itself.

At Anxiety Solutions CBT, we teach simple relaxation techniques and make sure you practice. Practicing is the key to getting well.

You can begin right now. Download this MP3, and practice this simple breathing and relaxation method every day. Within a few days you will feel calmer.

If you have your own preferred method, that is great and we can work to involve those techniques. However, our job is to see that you incorporate relaxation into your daily life so that you achieve a state of well being.

One of our most popular resources at Anxiety Solutions CBT is our Stress and Anxiety Treatment Toolkit. The toolkit includes a printable guide, along with The Ruler and the 5 Breaths to Calm mp3 download.
