Anxiety Counselling Services

Anxiety can be listed as an umbrella diagnosis for a diversity of problems ranging from the uneasiness of mild panic attacks, irritating compulsions or crippling phobias.

Different individuals react differently to stressful situations. For some it is a temporary state which passes when the cause of stress subsides, while for others it may become a chronic condition which affects their lives and those of their loves ones. While worrying about everyday problems is a part of life, when anxiety starts to cast a shadow over your personal, professional and social life, it might be time to ask for help.

Core problems of anxiety

Anxiety counselling servicesThe human body reacts to stress by pumping more adrenaline. It leads to symptoms of anxiety like palpitations and shaking. The apprehension of anxiety is the biggest problem for most individuals. It leads to a vicious fear-adrenaline-fear cycle experienced by most individuals suffering from this condition.

If you or your loved ones are suffering from any of these symptoms, you may have become a victim of anxiety:

  • snowballing worries and finding it hard to stop worrying
  • irritability and headaches
  • extreme tiredness and fatigue
  • feeling short of breathe with palpitations or a racing heart
  • tightening of the chest and shaking
  • sweating with a churning stomach
  • sleeplessness
  • panic attacks
  • lump in throat
  • giddiness or light headed
  • weight loss
  • obsessive thoughts
  • diarrhoea
  • anti-social behaviour.
  • hot and cold flushes

How anxiety counselling may help

At the core of anxiety lie unhealthy beliefs, thoughts, actions, and behaviours: the factors that lead us to produce anxiety. The addition of personal counselling ensures that the underlying factors leading to anxiety are dealt with along with taking measures to combat the symptoms thereby eliminating the possibility of the symptoms resurfacing later on.

Unfortunately anxiety is a problem that feeds itself and is usually dealt with in isolation. If you feel that you or your loved ones are suffering from symptoms of anxiety then I can help.

As an anxiety therapist, I specialise in this area and therefore can provide better insight into problems that are generally unseen to the inexperienced eye.
