Gwendoline Smith in conversation with Hannah MacInnes

Overthinking, ruminating, worrying: internationally bestselling author and clinical psychologist Gwendoline Smith explains this common form of anxiety and offers advice for overcoming it.

In the wake of the pandemic, second lockdown, and economic hardship, many of us face mental-health struggles alone and without support.

But help is at hand. Acute anxiety is not an inevitable consequence of our times, and with the right tools we can restore the balance of our minds.

In conversation with Hannah MacInnes, psychologist and bestselling author Gwendoline Smith will explain in clear and simple language the concepts of positive and negative overthinking, the truth about worry and how to deal with the ‘thought viruses’ that are holding you back.

She will help you understand what’s going on in your head, using humour, lots of examples and anecdotes, and she offers powerful strategies for addressing your issues.

Drawing on the insights of cognitive behavioural theory, this livestream event will help you in all the key areas of your life: from your personal life to relationships and work.
