Exam Stress Busting!

At The Edinburgh Practice, we know that this time of year can be very stressful for teens coming up to exam time and we are seeing increasing numbers of teens for anxiety management related to school and exam performance. As a result, we have decided to host a FREE two hour workshop for teenagers in Edinburgh looking to find ways to manage their stress and anxiety both approaching and during exams. The event will be held at Tribe Yoga Quartermile, who have kindly offered their space for free to support this community event! Sign up fast to get one of the 20 spaces available!
