Free Zoom Meetings Every Thursday


As you know, the vast majority of our training is now available in “Work from Home” online format. Some courses are with LIVE support from the Tutor, and some are not. We felt that people who choose to train via self-learning modules should not be deprived of the opportunity to connect with their tutor, ask questions and seek advice. Furthermore, at a time of social isolation, we felt that providing you with an opportunity of a face-to-face conversation with your tutor is incredibly important.

That is why starting THIS THURSDAY, we are running FREE ZOOM MEETINGS with Professor Paul Grantham and other SDS Tutors – OPEN FOR ALL.


Currently we’ve booked dates until 16 July 2020, but we will be reviewing these as the situation develops.

The first session:

2 April 2020, 7 PM UK time

COVID-19, CBT & Health Anxieties

Luckily CBT has a lot of experience and suggestions as to how to help such clients. Paul Grantham will lead a discussion via a current case (Ronnie) whose anxiety regarding COVID-19 infection has led her to become both e anxious and overcontrolling with her children.
