Arrange an appointment
If you are meeting a friend of family member, pick a place you will feel comfortable and ask them to meet. Perhaps you would feel most comfortable within your own home, or maybe a coffee shop would feel like a safe space for the conversation – whatever feels most comfortable to you, ask that they meet you there. If you are booking an appointment with an organisation or doctor, try to arrange an appointment for a time that suits you. For example, if your anxiety tends to be worst in the mornings, don’t book a morning appointment. If you know that Mondays are difficult for you, don’t book a Monday appointment.
