Anxiety may be the most distressing thing that you will experience, but TrueHope anxiety counselling can help. Anxiety treatment can help you to feel less anxious, and more centred, composed, and calm. We all experience small amounts of anxiety from time to time. Sometimes it helps us to pay attention to things that are important or dangerous. But it can also easily become painful and overwhelming, making it difficult for you to do the things that you want or need to do. Sudden surges of anxiety can make you feel like you’re losing control, and some people even feel like they’re going to die. These surges are called panic attacks or anxiety attacks. Anxiety and panic can make us withdraw from others and avoid anything that makes us anxious. This can leave us feeling worthless, afraid and alone.
If you’re experiencing anxiety, you may feel all these symptoms or only some.
Anxiety counselling is one of the best anxiety treatments. If you’re feeling overwhelmed you’re not alone. Anxiety and panic are the most common reasons that people contact TrueHope for therapy. The good news is that they are both very treatable. Most people experience significant relief after completing a course of treatment and can get back to the things they really want to do with their lives.
At TrueHope we tailor your treatment to you, your personality, and the type of anxiety that you’re experiencing. When we experience anxiety, this often leads to an over-stimulation of the nervous system and the early stages of therapy normally include strategies to reduce this stimulation. These options will only be used if appropriate for you, and other strategies that look at your thoughts and emotions become more important in latter stages of treatment.
You can check some practical strategies to help with anxiety and panic in our ‘Learning to dance with stress and anxiety’ guide. If you would like some help with using these strategies or are ready to start therapy give us a call now or book an appointment.
