Anxiety can be overwhelming and become a negative cycle in a persons life, by making them feel that they can't cope, and prevent them from confronting their fears. If you find yourself struggling with anxiety, counselling can help restore your health and wellbeing.
Causes of Anxiety:
Some people have an identifiable cause for their anxiety: a traumatic incident, stress, or a significant life event. However, some people can’t identify the cause for their anxiety and this causes them further distress.
Looking at anxiety as an accumulation of stress from many causes, or developing over a period of time, can explain why sometimes it may seem to come out of the blue, with no specific trigger. Something that seems insignificant in itelf may recall a painful past experience, leading to the present feeling of anxiety.
What is needed is a method to release the stress and tension. Anxiety counselling can provide you with strategies and insights that can be fundamental in assisting you to achieve lasting recovery.
Advantages of Anxiety Counselling Include:
Understand your anxiety, as it pertains to you as an unique individual.
Develop a better understanding of your symptoms.
Identify the underlying issues associated with your anxiety.
Identify and implement strategies for healthy change.
Identify and address potential obstacles to recovery.
Have the support to sustain changes over time.
Therapy for anxiety addresses underlying factors, thereby eliminating the triggers or issues that can cause anxiety to resurface at a later time. At the basis of anxiety can lie unhealthy beliefs, thoughts, actions, and behaviours. Unless these underlying causes are addressed, anxiety has the potential to return. When the underlying factors are dealt with, you can achieve and maintain good mental health.
