Having provided targeted counselling and support to people experiencing anxiety for the past decade, Kate Henderson brings a wealth of knowledge and genuine care to her work.

Anxiety can be an isolating experience.  We often feel as though we are very much alone, even when surrounded by friends and family.  Group support can provide us with the understanding, encouragement and friendship we need to begin moving forward.

The Panic Room SA Support Group is an excellent forum for adults (18+) who wish to connect with others also experiencing an anxiety disorder.

Participants have the opportunity to discuss valuable anxiety management strategies, build support networks and reinforce cognitive skills.  

​Groups are facilitated by Kate, a qualified counsellor who has lived with and recovered from an anxiety disorder. 

If you are unable to attend an in-person group, you may wish to consider our Skype support group option. 

Please note:  Support groups are designed to provide peer support and encouragement during recovery and should not be viewed as a replacement for professional assistance or psychological therapy.

"I started attending the Panic Room group meetings. Information was shared regarding the topic for the evening and time was set aside for people to share their own experiences.


The members of this group demonstrated compassion and respect for each other. I found the whole event very supportive and reassuring"




"The face to face group is well run and very helpful for people with anxiety, panic attacks etc....People can relate to each other and speaking out is therapeutic.


Kate is brilliant at being real, having coped with the issues personally and has empathy"
