Health treatments & therapies

Social survival kit

  • Leave plenty of time to pack and prepare

  • Take a friend – or plan to meet someone there

  • Give yourself a time limit. If you hate it after, say, 10 minutes…you can leave!

  • Visualise yourself being calm, confident and having fun

  • Give yourself a goal. Like, “I will introduce myself to one person.”
