On Tuesday 26th September I held my first spider phobia busting course, which was at my clinical practice, Theale Wellbeing Centre near Reading. I think it is safe to say that everyone was a little anxious or apprehensive on some level, including me, even though I had complete confidence in what I was doing! The first time you do something can always be a little nervy.
The day started off extremely well with many of the Theale Wellbeing Centre team eager to hold one of my tarantulas, Aphrodite was the one they all wanted to hold and she is my biggest spider at about 6-7 inches. I was ever so pleased how keen they all were even if they were nervous. The team are all very supportive and want to join in where they can - It's a great 'working family' relationship we all have.
The evening was a slightly different story...
