CATRIONA | Becoming friends with my anxiety

Catriona Bisset is an Olympian and the Australian record holder over 800m. But for a decade, she left the sport she loved. Anxiety became a constant companion through her teen years, and centred on one thing she couldn’t outrun – her body. Through therapy, she is learning to accept anxiety and depression as part of who she is. And to replace fear with self-compassion. This story was filmed on Wurundjeri Country, and we pay respect to the traditional owners of these lands. This video was directed and edited by Ned Donohoe.
