Anxiety Counselling

Anxiety

Feeling anxious, panicky or tense?

We’ve all come across a dangerous or stressful situation which provoked feelings of panic, anxiety and fear in us. These feelings are completely natural and usually don’t occur often.

However, if you have anxiety issues, these feelings occur regularly and can strike at any time, causing distress and leaving you feel powerless and out of control.

Anxiety can produce unpleasant side-effects like sweating, tension and avoidant behaviour, and if unattended can cause difficulties in your relationships, at work, and in your mood.

If this sounds like your experience, then know that you are not alone; anxiety is one of the most common reasons that people seek coaching or counselling.

Approach

The coach / counsellor will help you to explore the possible causes and triggers of your anxiety – including those created by employment, relationships and past experiences – and work with you to develop effective coping strategies.

They can also help with a personalised plan to bring about healthy change and explore techniques and tools that will help you manage stressful situations in the future.

Your coach or counsellor will help you to keep on track with your goals, providing ongoing emotional support and identify any potential barriers to self-improvement.
