Anxiety

Anxiety can be seen as a customary, yet unpleasant part of life that can affect us all in different ways. If you are suffering from anxiety you may feel irritable, tense, nervous, uptight or wound up. Common in all these complaints is the overwhelming effect of the body producing too much adrenaline. This results in physical symptoms that can affect daily life.

 

The apprehension of anxiety, which causes palpitations and shaking, creates even more adrenaline, resulting in a vicious circle. For some people anxiety is a temporary state that passes when the source of stress subsides. For others it becomes a long-term condition that affects their lives and those of their loved ones.

 

It is normal and healthy to feel sad or worried about life and its problems and pressures. But when a worry casts a cloud over everyday life, you may be suffering from anxiety, depression or a mixture of the two.

Our approach

Anxiety Counselling can help you to face your fears and rebuild self-esteem. The aim of anxiety treatment is to help reduce symptoms so anxious feelings no longer affect your daily life.

 

Anxiety Counselling is one form of anxiety treatment. It can help by teaching
you how to:

  • co-manage your life to get back to normal
  • define and reframe your most common anxieties
  • manage and understand the problem
  • manage your life better through meeting your needs
  • understand your own limits and triggers
  • confront and tolerate your fears
  • understand the effects of your self-esteem and expectations
  • consider the wider context of your relationships and their effects

Gaining an understanding of the source of the problem may help you develop a new perspective.

 

CBT for Anxiety has a structured approach to dealing with anxiety in stages. It allows sufferers to look at their own unhealthy thinking and employs graduated exercises in desensitisation and exposure to help people face their fears and anxieties. Psychoanalytic work can look at the origins of the anxiety and offer new perspectives when the time is right.

Over the course of the sessions I have had with Simon I have gone from someone who probably would not have been able to carry on for much longer the way that I was, to someone that is now looking forward to working and moving on with my life...
