Therapy for Anxiety

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 either chronic or acute anxiety or panic attacks, counselling can help restore your health and wellbeing.

Causes of Anxiety:

Some people have an identifiable cause for their anxiety: a traumatic incident, psychological 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.

  • Address potential obstacles to recovery, such as resistance or negative thoughts or behaviours​.

Talk Therapy for anxiety addresses underlying factors, thereby eliminating the triggers or issues that can cause anxiety to resurface at a later time.
