Workshop: Navigating Overthinking and Creating a Supportive Space

Group Type: Workshop

Goals of the group

This is a space where we can explore overthinking rather than suppressing it (as we know, saying “don’t think about it” or “you’re overthinking, stop” rarely works!). We aim to understand what our mind is truly trying to convey, avoid, distract, or notice beneath the guise of overthinking. At the heart of overthinking lies anxiety, which often forms a cloud of overthinking. But what is this cloud really obscuring or trying to communicate?

Our goal is not to provide a 5-step formula to eliminate overthinking. Instead, we seek to understand how our mind works and coexist with this aspect of ourselves. As a group, we will explore various ways to cope with the cloud of overthinking that often hinders decision-making. Sharing similar experiences and situations, we can offer support and understanding to one another.
