Have you ever had those thoughts that keep telling you that you’re not worth it? You’re not good enough? No one cares? You can’t do anything right? These are ANTs (Automatic Negative Thoughts). Everyone gets them and it’s not your fault.  But what can we do about them?


For those who interact with people who have anxiety, depression, stress, or who just struggle with negative thinking patterns, Sally-Anne McCormack will offer you some advice and strategies to help reduce their unhelpful thoughts, and you will learn some positive psychology strategies along the way to help in your own life!


Identifying our ANTs is important

Sally-Anne shares some exercises that you can do to be more conscious of them, and some strategies to help manage them. She will also share some more positive psychology activities that we can do to change our thinking patterns by re-wiring our brains.

Target Audience

EVERYONE! General Public, Carers, Teachers, Clinicians, Case Workers, Emergency Service workers, Psychology Students.
