Kristin School presents the Term 2 Masterclass "The Book of Knowing: Know how you think, change how you feel" with Gwendoline Smith. This Masterclass is suitable for the whole family to attend.

Learn to understand the way you think, and you will create resilience and be able to deal with many of the unnecessary anxieties of life. Psychologist Gwendoline Smith uses her broad scientific knowledge and experience to explain in clear and simple language what's going on when you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious and confused. Based on the school of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Gewndoline Smith's presentation is scientific and logic-based, but also straightforward and practical.
