The workshops are free and open to all adults.

Jennifer Mason, from Doncaster’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) team, said: “Some people prefer using a computer rather than talking to a therapist about their private feelings.

"Mind District is an online tool that allows users to benefit from therapy with minimal or no contact with a therapist if they prefer.

"Users work through modules of information, videos, exercised and examples at their own pace, step by step, to put them on the road to recovery,

"There is also the option of benefiting from phone calls or online messages with a therapist to guide and monitor their progress if they want.

"We offer a range of modules that can be personalised to best suit individual needs, including obsessive compulsive disorder, work stress, sleep problems, self-esteem, relaxation, anxiety depression and panic disorders.

The workshop will take place on Monday, July 19 at 1pm.
