Anxiety Counselling

Is Anxiety holding you back? Anxiety is a natural emotional response to stressful situations and prepares us for challenges. However, anxiety can become problematic if it persists, is excessive and out of proportion to the actual danger or situation. When anxiety is not managed it can lead to a tendency to always expect something to go wrong and excessive worry about health, money, family, work, relationships and school. The worry is often unrealistic or out of proportion for the situation. 

Common symptoms or signs of Anxiety

  • worrying thoughts
  • constant negative feelings
  • intense dislike or fear of situations
  • panic attacks
  • difficulty concentrating and sleeping
  • irritability
  • unpleasant memories or intrusive thoughts

  • Understanding the underlying causes and triggers of your anxiety
  • Learning how to minimise the effects of anxiety
  • Developing ways to manage your anxiety – this usually involves both challenging negative thoughts and learning techniques to reduce the physical effects allowing you to manage stressful situations.
  • Building a range of tools and strategies to manage future anxiety.
